Hire This Woman: Writer Emma Beeby

Untitled-1

In the overwhelmingly male comic book industry, it has been a challenge for some editors and readers to see the ever growing number of talented women currently trying to make a name for themselves. With that in mind, ComicsAlliance offers Hire This Woman, a recurring feature designed for comics readers as well as editors and other professionals, where we shine the spotlight on a female comics pro on the ascendance. Some of these women will be at the very beginning of their careers, while others will be more experienced but not yet “household names.”

Emma Beeby has written various different kinds of projects including speeches, film, games, horoscopes, and audioplays. She wrote Risen 2: Dark Waters, a game that was nominated for a Writers Guild Award, as well as a Doctor Who audioplay. Her comics work includes Judge Dredd, making her the first female writer in the character's history.

Holiday Gift Guide: DREDD

Dredd on DVD

When it comes to the holiday gift-giving season, comic book readers are notoriously difficult to shop for. I mean, most of us are down at the shop buying our favorite stuff every single week, so when the time comes for people who like us to get us something we want, well, a lot of times we already have it. That’s why we’re stepping in with a public service, bringing you comics-related items sure to make the season brighter, whether you’re browsing for a gift or just looking for something to drop hints about so that you don’t get stuck with a random assortment of back issues again.

If you're in need of a stocking stuffer that will ensure you have a profoundly violent Christmas (in a good way), then there are far worse ways for you to spend $10 than a copy of Dredd on DVD. And most of 'em will get you six months in the cubes, creep.

Judge Dredd Defies New Readers Not To Jump On ’2000 AD’ With Latest Issue

Untitled-1

As it is prone to do perhaps more often than some of its American competition, British sci-fi weekly 2000 AD has designed its latest issue to be especially welcoming to new readers. Four brand new stories begin in this week's 2000 AD Prog 1850, each meant to introduce audiences to the unique blend of art, attitude and insanity that can typically be found every week in "the galaxy's greatest comic." Among them, a new Judge Dredd strip as well as new work by Al Ewing (Mighty Avengers), Pat Mills (Marshal Law), Ian Edginton (Victorian Undead), and INJ Culbard (The New Deadwardians).

The new-reader-friendly prog is part of a concentrated effort to raise awareness of 2000 AD and Judge Dredd in particular so as to persuade the powers that be that a Dredd movie sequel is something they should put into production at once. That effort includes an official Dredd sequel petition and the latest issue of Judge Dredd Megazine, which introduces a new strip that will continues the continuity of the cult favorite Karl Urban film.

‘Judge Dredd: Day of Chaos’ Is An Event Comic Done Right [Review]

dayofchaosdredd

In theory, Judge Dredd: Day of Chaos should be everything I hate about big event comics. It goes out of its way to be grim and dark even by Dredd standards, boasting a body count over 300 million, features a protagonist who's often powerless to stop the terrible things that are going on, and the only person who really comes out of it with anything that remotely resembles a victory is a mass murderer. It's almost thoroughly devoid of hope, with a focus on brutality and horror that's telegraphed from the opening. Half of it's built like a zombie story, and in true 21st century event comic fashion, there's even a dude who gets his arm cut off.

Taken all together, that's essentially a checklist of things I never want to see again in superhero comics. In Day of Chaos, however, that all comes together to form a textbook example of how to do event comics right.

Comic-Con: The Publisher Booths [SDCC 2013]

sdccpublishingboothsmain

When it comes to San Diego Comic-Con, every publisher approaches the show a little bit differently. Whether they house cosplay contests, interactive displays, photo ops with talent, creator signings and/or a whole lot of purchasable product, SDCC booths are an opportunity for the publishers that can attend to make a big impression on one of the most attended pop culture gatherings of the year. You can get a sampling of what publishers like Marvel, DC, Archie, Boom!, IDW, 2000 AD, Dark Horse, Image, Fantagraphics, Oni and others were up to on the show floor of this year's SDCC after the cut.

New ‘Judge Minty’ Fan Film Teaser Released [Video]

judgemintyshortmain

Following the unfortunate box office performance of Dredd (which CA's own Chris Sims liked quite a bit), fans have appropriately been full of... dread... about the possibility of seeing their favorite futuristic judge doling out vengeance on the big screen. Luckily, it looks like John Wagner

Parting Shot: Judge Dredd Welcomes Marvel to the World of Weekly Comics

2000ad-weekly

We enjoyed 2000 AD's cheeky salutation to Marvel Comics as the superhero publisher enters the world of weekly comics, as announced recently at South By Southwest. But as the promo above correctly indicates, 2000 AD's been at the weekly comics game for 36 years and maybe everybody should just calm down a bit. Fair point to 2000

Buy This Book: ‘Judge Dredd: Origins’

dredd01

I've been meaning to get more into Judge Dredd for a while now. I picked up a few of the classic stories back in October with the beautifully designed collections of The Dark Judges and The Cursed Earth, and I've read bits and pieces from the issues of 2000 AD that I come across, but to be honest, it can be difficult to figure out a place to really jump in.

But then, a copy of the new printing of John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra's Origins showed up at my house courtesy of 2000 AD, and

Judge Dredd Goes In ‘The Closet’ In A Story Of Dredd Fetishism

dredd01

Considering that he's an extremely strict dude in head-to-toe black leather with a penchant for dealing out harsh punishments, I think it's safe to say that Judge Dredd has always been more than a little fetish-y. This month, though, things are finally going to be taken to their logical extreme, as Mega Ci
