About the Author
John Wagner is, to many fans, the very heart of 2000 AD. Involved from the earliest days of the Galaxy's Greatest Comic, he co-created Judge Dredd, as well as a whole cast of other memorable characters. Wagner has worked extensively beyond the Thargian universe, originating and editing a number of British periodicals as well as writing many American standards. His Paradox Press graphic novel A History of Violence is now a major film from director David Cronenberg Alan Grant. With over 300 2000 AD stories to his name - not to mention over 250 Daily Star Judge Dredd strips - Grant's prolific creative record speaks for itself. Steve Dillon is a fan-favourite 2000 AD writer and artist, and the creator of both Hap Hazzard and the Irish Judge Joyce, who appears in several Judge Dredd stories. Brett Ewins has been one of the Galaxy's Greatest Comic's most beloved artists. Cam Kennedy is another hugely popular 2000 AD artist, having illustrated many Judge Dredd strips and co-created luckless wannabe creator Kenny Who? and the Taxidermist. Ian Kennedy provided the art for various 2000 AD strips including Invasion!, Judge Dredd, Tharg's Future Shocks and M.A.C.H. 1. Ian Gibson is responsible for the co-creation of The Ballad of Halo Jones (with Alan Moore), and created Bella Bagley, an unfortunate character in Judge Dredd's world who fell headover- heels in love with 'Old Stoney Face' himself! Kim Raymond illustrated various 2000 AD strips including Future Shocks, Judge Anderson, Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog, and Time Twisters. Cliff Robinson is one of 2000 AD's longest-serving artists, having made his debut with a Future Shock way back in Prog 362! Since then, he has co-created Mother Earth, and illustrated numerous Judge Dredd strips, as well as Future Shocks, Judge Anderson, Pulp Sci-Fi, Vector 13 and Venus Bluegenes. Robin Smith has illustrated Future Shocks, Judge Dredd, Mean Machine, One-Offs, Rogue Trooper, Strontium Dog, Tharg the Mighty and Time Twisters.
