About Author

Jim Alexander penned Calhab Justice for the Megazine as well as working on various Judge Dredd strips. David Bishop edited 2000 AD from Christmas 1995 until the summer of 2000, before leaving to become a full-time writer. He's had nearly 20 novels published, a radio play broadcast by the BBC and had scripted serials for 2000 AD, Judge Dredd Megazine and the Phantom. He won a first prize at the 2007 Page International Screenwriting Awards in Los Angeles for his short film script Danny's Toys, and recently attained an MA in screenwriting with distinction at Screen Academy Scotland. You can read David's blog at www.viciousimagery.blogspot.com With over 300 2000 AD stories to his name - not to mention over 250 Daily Star Judge Dredd strips - Alan Grant's prolific creative record speaks for itself. Outside the Galaxy's Greatest Comic, Grant is well-known to Batman fans following a lengthy run on various incarnations of the title. More recently he has adapted Robert Louis Stevenson's classic novels Kidnapped and Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde in Graphic Novel format with artist Cam Kennedy. His television work includes scripts for the BBC series Ace Lightning and the Carnival of Doom and he is currently writing a feature length animation for a German company. John Smith is unquestionably a 2000 AD hero, with a host of creative credits to his name, including A Love Like Blood, Devlin Waugh, Firekind, Holocaust 12, Indigo Prime, Pussyfoot 5, Revere, Slaughterbowl and Tyranny Rex. Smith has also written Future Shocks, Heavy Metal Dredd, Judge Dredd, Judge Karyn, Pulp Sci-Fi, Robo-Hunter, Rogue Trooper, Tales from Beyond Science, Tales of Mega-City One and Vector 13. Smith's work beyond the Galaxy's Greatest Comic includes the long-running New Statesmen series and Straitgate in Crisis, DC/Vertigo's Hellblazer and Scarab, and Harris Comics' Vampirella and Pantha. John Wagner has been scripting for 2000 AD for more years than he cares to remember. His creations include Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog, Ace Trucking, Al's Baby, Button Man and Mean Machine. Outside of 2000 AD his credits include Star Wars, Lobo, The Punisher and the critically acclaimed A History of Violence. Simon Bisley occupies an almost unique place in 2000 AD history as one of the first UK artists to popularise the fully painted style pioneered by Argentinian artist Alberto Brecchia. His highly dynamic artwork made his two major series in the Galaxy's Greatest Comic -- A.B.C. Warriors: The Black Hole and Slaine: The Horned God -- very popular, as they remain to date. John Hicklenton has illustrated a wide range of strips across both 2000 AD and the Megazine, including Heavy Metal Dredd, Judge Dredd, Mean Machine, Nemesis the Warlock, Pandora, Rogue Trooper, Strange Cases and Tharg's Future Shocks. His work can also be seen in Crisis! and Deadline. Most recently he has provided the art for Blood of Satanus III in Judge Dredd Megazine and has worked with Pat Mills on Zombie World. Brendan McCarthy was a key early artist for 2000 AD, and designed Zenith with Grant Morrison, and many of the perennially popular ABC Warriors with Pat Mills (and others). He also illustrated Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog, and Tharg's Future Shocks. McCarthy's non-2000 AD work includes Skin in Crisis, Strange Days, Paradox!, Freakwave in Vanguard Illustrated and work for Revolver. Since joining 2000 AD in 1986 Colin MacNeil has worked on many strips, including Chopper - Song of the Surfer and the infamous death of Johnny Alpha in Strontium Dog - The Final Solution. He went on to collaborate with John Wagner on the award winning Judge Dredd - America for the Judge Dredd Megazine. He has also worked on Shimura, Maelstrom and Fiends of the Eastern Front - Stalingrad. Most recently working on Judge Dredd -Total War, Cadet, Mutants in Mega-City One and Emphatically Evil: The Life and Crimes of P J Maybe. He also provided the atmospheric artwork on Bloodquest for Games Workshop. He also enjoys creating large abstract paintings. He says it's art therapy! Dean Ormston's otherworldly pencils first graced the Megazine, where he contributed to the epic Judge Dredd 'Judgement Day' saga, and pencilled the popular 'Raptaur'. He is the co-creator of antique oddities Harke and Burr, and has also pencilled Heavy Metal Dredd, Judge Death, Missionary Man, Strange Cases, and Tales of Telguuth. Ormston's other non- 2000 AD work includes The Crow, The Invisibles, The Monarchy and Sandman. He also worked on character designs for the animated CGI series Reboot.
