Currently Mills is writing the best-selling series Requiem-Vampire Knight for Editions Nickel of France with artist Olivier Ledroit, and a spin-off series. Claudia- Vampire Knight, with artist Frank Tacito. Two further French series are in production. Mike McMahon: although McMahon may not have illustrated as many strips as other 2000 AD creators, his importance to the comic cannot be overstated. It was McMahon who co-created perennial classics A.B.C. QWarriors and The V.C.'s and it was also McMahon who gave Judge Dredd his classic, defining, "big boots" look-and two major characters in Max Normal and Rico Dredd. McMahon has also illustrated One-Offs, Ro-Busters, and provided a classic run on Slaine, where his dense woodcut-styled art wows readers young and old. Outside of the Galaxy's Greatest Comic, he has pencilled Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight and The Last American, which he co-created with John Wagner.
