By Benjamin Williams

Posted on: 27 Sep 2017


If you're lucky enough to be attending the New York Comic Con this year, then there's some good news from the UK's biggest comic publisher. 2000 AD will be attending and they have a great panel lined up along with some excellent guest appearances.

Jock (Batman, The Losers), Lee Garbett (Loki), Rob Williams (Suicide Squad), Alex De Campi (DREDD, Mayday) and Arthur Wyatt (DREDD) head 2000 AD's creator line-up.

Booth 2244 will be the place to visit, as it 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.

An added bonus is that 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 on the 17th October, Rogue Trooper Redux allows players to become one of 2000 AD's most enduringly popular characters - the blue-skinned, genetically-modified super-soldier!

The 40 years celebration continues, and to celebrate, a special panel on the Saturday will look at the history and politics of Judge Dredd with special guests Rob Williams, Ulises Farinas (Judge Dredd: Blessed Earth), Kelly Kanayama (Women Write About Comics), Rosie Knight (Nerdist), Arthur Wyatt, and Alex de Campi.

It promises to be another action-packed week at New York Comic Con - make sure you get your dose of 2000 AD Thrill-power!

Full signing schedule:
Jock and Lee Garbett -- Thursday-Saturday, 2pm
Rob Williams -- Thursday, 1pm; Friday, 12pm; Saturday, 3pm
Arthur Wyatt -- Thursday-Sunday, 11am

Panel:
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).
