Saturday the 7th September is officially The Day of Dredd, and we’re capping it off with a Mega-City mega-signing! Dan Abnett, John Higgins, Sally Hurst and Mick McMahon will all be here to sign from 1-2pm!
Since bursting into our cultural consciousness from the pages of 2000AD Prog #2, Judge Dredd has been possibly one of the greatest mainstays of British comics. A versatile storytelling vehicle, Joe Dredd (and more importantly the world of Dredd) is capable of carrying narratives as broad or serious as the creator wants them to be. From hilarious satire, through nail-biting adventure, to heartfelt drama, the character can shoulder it all, sometimes even in the same story. From the outside it might look like a mindless action spectacle, but once you’ve been drawn into the madness of Mega-City One it’ll never leave you. We all have our favourite era of Dredd!
And so how better to recognise Dredd’s continuing appeal than a signing featuring creators past and present? We were very keen to do something special to mark the Day of Dredd, so we’ve assembled a veritable murderer’s row of talent for this very special signing. It’s a rare thing to see so many top Dredd talents together in one place, so don’t snooze on this one! Be here, 1-2pm, Saturday September 7th: the Day of Dredd!
