About John Wagner
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.
Gordon Rennie is one of 2000 AD's most prolific creators, with co-creative credits for Caballistics, Inc., Missionary Man, Necronauts, Storming Heaven, Rain Dogs and Witchworld. Rennie has written for Heavy Metal and Warhammer, as well as Species, Starship Troopers and White Trash.
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.
Henry Flint, winner of the National Comics Awards for Best Comic Artist 2004, is one of the Galaxy's Greatest Comic's rising superstars. Co-creator of Sancho Panzer, Shakara, and the fan-favourite strip, Zombo, his incredibly versatile pencils have also graced A.B.C. Warriors, Judge Dredd/Aliens, Deadlock, Judge Dredd, Rogue Trooper, Nemesis the Warlock, The V.C.'s and Venus Bluegenes. He has even written a Tharg's Alien Invasions strip! He has also worked on several American comics, including Omega Men, Haunted Tank and Fear Itself: Fearsome Four. Away from the comics industry, Henry produced art of the cover of DJ Food's 2012 album, The Search Engine.
Jason Brashill is a real fan-favourite artist, whose mix of pencils and paints have enlivened both his co-created series Outlaw and The Space Girls and his other work for 2000 AD, which includes Harlem Heroes, Judge Dredd, and Batman/Judge Dredd. He has also contributed to the television series Spaced, where his artwork stands in for that "created" by the show's lead male character.
Anthony Williams is the co-creator of both Babe Race 2000 and Kola Kommandoes. During his 2000 AD career, he has illustrated Big Dave, Future Shocks, Judge Anderson, Judge Dredd, Mean Arena, Mean Machine, Robo-Hunter, Sinister Dexter, Slaine, Tharg the Mighty and most recently, The V.C.s. Williams' work beyond 2000 AD includes Batman, Fate, Green Lantern, Superman, The Unfunnies, and Games Workshop's Titan.
Carl Critchlow is another 2000 AD artist whose popularity is rising, thanks primarily to his work on the co-created semi-comic sci-fi strip Lobster Random. He made his debut some years previously, however, working on Nemesis and Deadlock, then moving on to Batman/Judge Dredd, Flesh, Flesh 3000 AD, Future Shocks, Judge Dredd, Mean Machine and Tales of Telguuth. Outside of 2000 AD, Critchlow is well known for his work on Thrud The Barbarian.
Under the pen name D'Israeli, Matt Brooker has been a comic artist since 1988. He is perhaps best known for his collaborations with writer Ian Edginton, including Leviathan, Kingdom of the Wicked, The War of the Worlds, Scarlet Traces, Leviathan and Batman. Other career highlights include work on Sandman, collaborations with Warren Ellis, including Lazarus Churchyard and the cryptic SVK, and his colouring on the later Miracleman stories, to which he'll be returning in 2015. Since 2003, he's been a regular contributor to 2000 AD, mostly as series artist on Stickleback with Ian Edginton and Low Life with Rob Williams. His and Rob's creator owned series, Ordinary, was published in the Megazine and is now available as a graphic novel. He lives in Nottingham, UK and wishes he had a cat.
One of 2000 AD's best-loved and most honoured artists, 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 head-over-heels in love with 'Old Stoney Face' himself! His work outside the Galaxy's Greatest Comic includes Chronicles of Genghis Grimtoad, Star Wars: Boba Fett, X-Men Unlimited, plus the designs for the TV series Reboot.
Boo Cook's 2000 AD debut came some years before he was to provide pencils for the comic proper - as a young man, he sent a fan sketch in to the letters page! Thankfully he continued to hone his art, working on a number of Future Shocks before landing a guest spot on the fan-favourite A.B.C. Warriors series. Cook's facility with huge crowd scenes and alien designs has quickly established him as a talent to watch, and with three co-created series - Asylum, Dead Men Walking, Harry Kipling (Deceased) - under his belt, he is one of the Galaxy's Greatest's brightest hopes for the future.
After starting his career as an inker at Marvel UK, Simon Coleby made his debut at 2000 AD in 1989, working on Future Shocks, Universal Soldier & Rogue Trooper. A favourite amongst 2000 AD fans, he has gone on to illustrate Judge Dredd, Low Life and Jaegir. Simon has also produced work for Games Workshop, DC Comics and Vertigo, for whom he co-created The Royals: Masters of War with fellow 2000 AD alumni, Rob Williams.
Shaun Thomas has illustrated Judge Dredd, Terror Tales and The Ten-Seconders for 2000 AD, but is better known for his Judge Dredd Megazine work, which includes Middenface McNulty and Apocalypse Soon - the strip he co-created with Alan Grant.
Patrick Goddard's clean art style has graced many strips in the Galaxy's Greatest Comic. Co-creator of the Megazine series Wardog, he has pencilled Judge Dredd, Mean Machine, Middenface McNulty, Sinister Dexter and took over the art duties on Savage from Charlie Adlard.
John Higgins is a multi-talented 2000 AD artist and writer; as well as scripting a Future Shock and Judge Dredd, Higgins has illustrated Chopper, Freaks, One-Offs, Tharg the Mighty and Time Twisters. His work outside the Galaxy's Greatest Comic is also highly respected, and he has contributed to some of the most important series of recent times, including working as a colourist on the modern superhero classic Watchmen, and on Vertigo's Animal Man, Hellblazer and Pride and Joy.
