2000AD Goes To NYCC 2017!
Jock (BatmanThe Losers), Lee Garbett (Loki), Rob Williams (Suicide Squad), Alex De Campi (DREDDMayday) and Arthur Wyatt (DREDD) head 2000 AD’s creator line-up at New York Comic Con next week!
The legendary British comic hits one of the biggest conventions in the US and Booth 2244 will be packed with Thrill-power, from the latest graphic novel collections to merchandise, including pin badges and prints by Vice Press!
The full line-up of signings showcases some of the best art and writing talent to come out of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic, including Jock – the visionary artist behind the look of the 2012 DREDD movie – and the new movie- tie-in writing partnership of Arthur Wyatt and Alex De Campi.
Plus, conventioneers will get the chance to roam the poisoned wastelands of Nu Earth by playing the demo of the hotly-anticipated Rogue Trooper Redux. Launching October 17, Rogue Trooper Redux allows players to become one of 2000 AD’s most enduringly popular characters – Gerry Finley-Day and Dave Gibbons’ blue-skinned, genetically-modified super-soldier!

Judge Dredd: Supercop or Satire?
Saturday 7 October, 6.30pm-7.30pm, Room 1A24
He’s the hardline cop bringing justice to the mean futuristic streets of Mega-City One but is Judge Dredd a hero or a villain? Is he a law enforcement role-model or, in the light of recent years, is he becoming a worrying vision of the future? We debate the pros and cons of the lawman of the future with Rob Williams (Judge Dredd, Suicide Squad), Ulises Farinas (Judge Dredd: Blessed Earth), Kelly Kanayama (Women Write About Comics), Rosie Knight (Nerdist), Arthur Wyatt (DREDD) and Alex de Campi (DREDD).
