Steve Dillon, well known to comics fans the world over for his work on two continents and across many decades, passed away on October 22, 2016. Writer Charlotte Finn pays tribute to an extraordinary artist.
Moonchild was one of the strips that ran in Misty, which was originally conceived by Mills as a sister title for 2000 AD, complementing the sci-fi directed primarily at boys with supernatural spookiness aimed at girls. Unfortunately, Misty wasn't as successful, and was later merged with a similar title, Tammy, before finally getting the axe in the mid-'80s.
The good news, though, is that thirty years after its last issue, Misty finally saw a reprint this year, and while its take on the popular horror of the day isn't quite as over-the-top as, say, Judge Dredd's take on America as a concept, it's still well worth checking out.
I have seen a lot of great Judge Dredd cosplay over the years, and while the costume itself presents a whole set of sartorial challenges, I have to imagine that the most difficult part of being Dredd is maintaining his permanent stony scowl. Even the most dedicated person is eventually going to think about two different kinds of animals being best friends, and boom. With one slight smile, the whole thing falls apart.
Now, though, 2000 AD and Ghoulish Productions have a solution: An officially licensed latex mask based on some of the comic's most popular characters, starting with Judge Dredd and his genocidal, interdimensional foe, Judge Death.

With 2000 AD hitting its monumental 2000th issue today, there's no better time to look back on the history of the title We reached out to the people who have shaped the Galaxy's Greatest Comic, from founding editor Pat Mills to current editor Matt Smith, and more, to find out not just how they came to 2000 AD, but the stories they think you should start with.
With the darn near overwhelming amount of prints, posters, and original art that’s available to us comic book readers, it’s pretty easy to decorate our homes to reflect our interests. Heck, we’re living in a time where you can even get a cookie jar in the shape of your favorite superhero, so clearly, there are options. There is, however a shortage of high-end, tangible, three-dimensions reminders of the inexorable and intractable power of the Law. Or there was, until ThreeA announced their brand new Judge Dredd figure.
Comic books as a medium have rarely need an excuse to feature a gorilla in a story, but in Judge Dredd Megazine #376, there's a little more going on under the surface than just the fun of seeing an ape wearing Judge Dredd's uniform.
It's always a big deal when a comic hits a round number, but when that number is in the thousands --- and when it's also a number that's been a part of the comic's title since its debut in 1977 --- it feels a whole lot bigger.
On September 28, 2000 AD is finally hitting its 2000th weekly issue, and it's celebrating with an all-star cast of creators to give readers a concentrated dose of thrillpower.
So here are the three most amazing things about the Northampton International Comic Expo, which is happening on September 3 and 4 in Bedford in the UK: First, it can be abbreviated to "NICE," which is a very pleasant thing to call your comic book convention. Second, it's taking place in a building called the Bedford Corn Exchange. And third --- and perhaps most importantly --- it's going to feature three amazing new Judge Dredd prints from artists Tom Whalen and Matt Ferguson.
Classic UK comic Misty was one of many teen focused titles published by Fleetway, with a specific focus on telling supernatural and horror-tinged stories for girls. UK publisher Rebellion today acquired the rights to Misty and other Fleetway comics of the '70s and '80s, but reprints of Misty were already in the works. Next week sees the release of the first collection, featuring the stories "The Four Faces of Eve" and "Moonchild," and we have a preview of chapter one of "Moonchild."
