// Alan Grant

Alan Grant has written a boat-load of stuff. For DC: Batman, Lobo, The Demon, LEGION, Bob the Galactic Bum and Outcasts. For Marvel: RoboCop, The Last American, Punisher and Nick Fury.

For Dark Horse: Terminator. For Rebellion: Judge Dredd, Anderson PSI, Robo-Hunter, Strontium Dog and MazeWorld. And he’s about to start on a new Anderson story for the Judge Dredd Megazine.

// John Wagner

John Wagner is best known for his work for 2000AD, having co-created Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog, Robo-Hunter and many other memorable characters. His Paradox Press graphic novel A History of Violence is a major film.

His latest project (with co-writer Alan Grant and artist Dan Cornwell) is Rok of the Reds, the strange and wonderful tale of the world’s first alien footballer.

An homage to the comics of their youth, Rok of the Reds ties in beautifully with one of our main exhibitions Playing for a Draw.

Chaired by our very own David Letterman, John McShane.
