On Saturday the 24th of November we’re having a tag-team signing with two stellar British artists behind the great old 2000AD/DC Comics crossover: Batman/Judge Dredd! It’ll be three days before the official release date of the fancy new hardcover edition so come grab a signed copy hot off the press:
It collects Batman/Judge Dredd: Judgment On Gotham, Vendetta In Gotham, The Ultimate Riddle, Die Laughing and Lobo/Judge Dredd: Psycho Bikers Vs. Mutants From Hell, by Alan Grant and John Wagner, with art by Cam Kennedy, Carl Critchlow, Jim Murray, Val Semeiks, John Dell and our guests Simon Bisley and Glenn Fabry. This blog fills you in on the history of the thing: the delays, the fill-ins, the long nights of strong coffee and paint.
Bisley’s fully-painted artwork can be found in the first Batman and Judge Dredd huge hit crossover, Judgement on Gotham in the early 90s. He’s best known for ABC Warriors, Lobo and Slaine and can be seen these days mostly on the covers (and sometimes the insides) of Hellblazer.
Fabry painted the sequel, Die Laughing, and is currently on our shelves with Steve Niles in the new five-part horror series, Lot 13. He’s also worked with Neil Gaiman on Sandman: Endless Nights, Garth Ennis on The Authority: Kev, Kevin Smith on Daredevil/Bullseye: The Target, and illustrated Pat Mills’ Slaine for 2000AD. His covers have graced the likes of Preacher, Warren Ellis’ Transmetropolitan, and Hellblazer too.
We’ll have piles of the book available on the day but if you’d like to reserve a copy (or can’t make the signing and would like to get one scribbled on by Fabry and Bisley) send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll sort it out.
See you there!
