The wonderful artist Glenn Fabry is the next creator on Mark McCann’s list of interviews, which is really a relaxed chat for his Considering Comic Books site.
Find out loads of snippets of interesting arty stuff alongside how the Avengers ignored an injured Glenn but some Trekkies saved him. How drinking saves lives. DVD’s for a quid. The Biz. Selling urine. Alan Moore is really Amy Winehouse. A very funny Ryan Brown impersonation, among many other things.
Mark and Glenn are collaborating on a Future Shock as well, which is great news!

It’s always great to find something new on the web about Judge Dredd and even better when it’s a ‘free’ 5 page story. This is what’s just happened, as James Gray has just posted this enjoyable short up.
The story:- It’s a dig at Marc Marquez‘ often disregard for the rules and etiquette of MotoGP, but set in the world of Judge Dredd
Now even for those who don’t know much about MotoGP, I think we can see where this might head. Sit back, relax and enjoy an entertaining short by James.
James is an artist, illustrator and Graphic Designer who lives in Kent, England and you can follow his work on Facebook via this link QUIGONJIMGRAY
What happens when someone who enjoys 2000 AD, especially it’s awesome array of artists, wants to start his own comic. Well folks, you get yourself along to the 40th Anniversary, Lawgiver, Enniskillen and a few other cons and meet those artists and put forward your plan for, SPACE BASTARDS!
This is what Eric Peterson who’s from the US has been doing (a few of you may have met him at the above cons) and now he’s revealed his comic and some of the artists he’s chosen to help bring his ideas to life. At the moment he has Simon Bisley, Colin MacNeil, Clint Langley and Boo Cook. Another name well known to 2000 AD fans is Simon Bowland, who is the letterer.
Kicking it all off, he has Darick Robertson, which shows that he is not just going to stick with 2000 AD but wants the best out there as well! Just look at this page!
You can see the above page and the rest of the pretty substantial sample, by following the link and reading all the info on the SPACE BASTARDS site. It’s pretty comprehensive and you can sign up for notifications. This looks like an anthology not to miss!

San Diego Comic Con is the place to be seen and 2000 AD have a panel on the Saturday at 16:00-17:00, in Room 4, which has a capacity of 155-280 depending on if it’s laid out like a classroom or theatre, so don’t be late, as it’s bound to fill out fast!
This panel is called The 2000 AD Thrill Hour but they normally last for 50 minutes, due to room changeover. Already known to be on this panel is Liana Kangas and Katy Rex, with other creators to be announced, for chat, announcements and fun!
Also on the Saturday is a panel called Judge Dredd: Supercop or Satire? This takes place at 18:30-19:30, in Room 8, which has a capacity of 156-340, again, depending on if it’s laid out like a classroom or theatre.
This panel will will consist of Mark Russell (Judge Dredd: Under Siege), Meg Downey (CBR), Rosie Knight (Nerdist) and Evan Narcisse (io9, Rise of the Black Panther) and they will discuss if Judge Dredd is 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? So that will be something to get the juices flowing.
There you go, two interesting panels to enjoy in the late afternoon! Don’t forget, if you do attend these, take some pictures and let us know what they were like, as we can’t all get to SDCC.
