Brendan McCarthy - Artist/Designer
Brendan McCarthy ( younger brother of Jim, below ) is an innovative artist who has worked for both small and adventurous independent publishers as well as major companies.
He has created the look for several series (including Zenith in 2000AD), a well as illustrating episodes of Judge Dredd, Shade the Changing Man ( for DC ) and the Extremist.
A frequent collaborator with writer
Peter Milligan, two of their Best works have recently reached a wider audience. The controversial graphic novel Skin (was first to be published in 'Crisis' in 1989) was finally published after waiting several years to find a home, while the multi-textured Rogan Gosh ( first serialised in Fleetway's late, lamented Revolver monthly ) has just been collected by DC. He is also responsible for the designs of various world Judges uniform in 2000AD's Judge Dredd, these include the Hondo-Cit (Japanese) Judges, the Oz (Australian) Judges, the Brit-Cit (British) Judges and the fanatical quasi-religious, Judda.
Brendan McCarthy began his TV/Film career in the late 70's on ATV's "Dan Dare" and has run parallel with his career in comics ever since. His job on Dan Dare was to oversee the show's production on the style and visual side, the basic premise was that live actors were electronically keyed onto backgrounds. This style was later used on another comic-strip to TV adaptation, "Jane". Dan Dare featured James Fox as Dare, Rodney Bewes with silver hair as Digby and for one glorious moment, Johnny Rotten as the Mekon. Other comic artists that worked on Dare were Brett Ewins and Brain Bolland who did such a good job of adapting Dare to the small screen that original Dan Dare artist, Frank Hampson said they were capturing the spirit of his 50's Dare beautifully. Unfortunately the show was canceled before airing, Lew Grade kept creaming profit off ATV to pour into various projects, including the mega flop "Raise the Titanic" which resulted in making ATV bankrupt.
Disillusioned with seeing a year of work going down the tubes, Brendan took the redundancy money he received from ATV, packed a small bag and took a very long walk around the world. After passing through Egypt, the Himalayas, Bangkok and Los Angeles he finally ended up in Sydney were he landed the job of drawing animation layouts for Hanah-Barbera, including "Yogi Bear". He became increasingly bored with this and found a new company who were producing a 13 half hour Sci-fi animation series for the Arabian home market and ended up designing and directing the show. Six month later he moved into making commercials for Sydney TV.
His greatest regret from his time in Sydney was not been able to work on Mad Max 2, which was in production at the time. Instead with the help of long time collaborator, Peter Milligan he put together a film proposal for a 'Mad Max goes surfing' movie, called "Freakwave" (later turning into a comic). Although they were able to get the proposal to directors like Russell Mulachey and Ridley Scott they failed to get a bite, but as a result of the proposal both of them received offers to work on other films.< br> Since then Brendan has produced storyboard and design work for such films as, Highlander 2, Enemy Mine, Pinocchio (New Line), Razorback, Mr Wonderful, New Babylon, Loch Ness, Teenage Mutant Turtles, Coneheads, Dream Demon, The Bride, Justice 2500, Lost in Space, The Borrowers, Wind in the Willows and the live action Thunderbirds movie currently in production. Plus he has also worked on TV series such as Jim Henson's The Storyteller, and worked extensively with Canadian Computer Animation Company, Mainframe Entertainment creating characters for Reboot, Webworld, War Planets and Werid-Ohs.
He has also worked on various music videos, including videos by Michael Jackson, Paul McCartney, Def Leppard, Bryan Adams. Plus umpteen TV commercials from the Andex Puppy ads, Budweiser, Dr Peppers and Phillips adverts to the Aids campaign commercials staring John Amiel. Several of his own projects are currently in development including Totem, Metal City PD, Subterrania, Doctor Dream, Admiral Polo and Zyboria. Two of his projects, Horrorville and Z-men have been optioned for commercial Hollywood movies.
Brendan McCarthy is currently living in Australia, co-writing and designing the new Mad Max movie (#4) with original Mad Max director George Miller.

Jim McCarthy - Artist
Was reincarnated in London. Latin style congo-bongo skanks with groups were the order of the day until art school daze beckoned. At Ealing College from 1972-75, experiments with animation, print, collage and fabrics incorporated comics material. Reality called and he found himself in Europe for three years, working as an industry training cartoonist, with a penchant for Drums, Ditko and dinero.
Bad company, his first venture into the comics renaissance, has been followed by work on Future Shocks and being co-creator of Bix Barton ( again with Pete Milligan ) and Grudgefather. Kid Cyborg ( #972-979 )

L. McCormack-Sharpe - Artist
ABC warriors (#1237-1239)

John McCrea -Artist

Garth Ennis collaborator with fellow Belfastman. They worked on Troubled Souls, A few more troubles, (both for Crisis). Now draws for D.C. Comics, his works include Batman Chronicles, Legends of the DarkKnight, Hitman (most widely known for) and Dicks.

Alan McKenzie -Writer/Editor [aka MAC 2]
He was Group Editor at Marvel UK, before going freelance as a writer for Battle and 2000AD with future shock
Bradley followed by Universal Solider ( Prog 537-543, 672, 750-759 ) and Luke Kirby .
"Then 2000AD editor Steve MacManus took a sabbatical, leaving Richard Burton in charge... I volunteer to fill in for the 3 months of Steve's extended holiday, and I've been here ever since."
The above was taken from a letter by Alan McKenzie to Comics International.
Brigand Doom ( created with Dave D'Antiquis ), Kelly's Eye ( revival of mid-70's comics character who reappeared in the last series of Universal Solider )
RAM Raiders ( Prog 980-989, 990-992 ). From prog 921 he left 2000AD editorial staff.
He also wrote the definitive book "How to draw and sell comic strips" (ISBN 0-356-13879-8)
And also has a web-site @

Mike McMahon - Artist
Mike McMahon is one of 2000AD's most influential artists, with echoes of his work on the classic early episodes of
Dredd evident in dozens of subsequent interpretations, it was McMahon's first professional work out of art college and he was told to copy Carlos Ezquerra's style. Although Carlos Ezquerra created the look of Dredd, it was McMahon who drew the first adventure to be published, in Prog 2.
The celebrated McMahon style of big boots and crumpled clothes soon developed, making him one of the most popular Dredd artists, along side the polished rendering of Brian Bolland. He also drew stints on Ro-busters, ABC warrior. He co-created the VCs and designed the look of Angel Gang.
But McMahon was not content with repeating himself forever (his last Dredd story for 12 years was the first 2 episodes of 'Block Mania' )and developed a new style when drawing the first, full length series of Slaine. His style has mutated several times since, while his work has mostly been for American comics companies. McMahon projects have included The Last American for Epic and Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight for DC.
He returned to the character he helped make great, drawing a four-part Dredd adventure called Howler for the Judge Dredd Megazine in 1994. Illustrating Sonic The Comic and Vertigo's Tannered Banners
For the IPC censored contribution by McMahon to the Prog. 500 creators commentary see Tharghead revisited.

Pat Mills -Writer/Editor
The first editor of 2000AD and writer of many popular series including ABC warriors, Nemesis and Sláine.
He also re-wrote the very first published episode of Judge Dredd in 1977 when John Wagner's original draft was deemed too violent. Pat Mills got his start a sub-editor on romance comics for DC Thomson, before going freelance as a writer. His editorial skills remained in high demand and he helped create top titles for fleetway, including Battle (Charlie's War), Action and 2000AD.
With Kevin O'Neill he created Marshall Law and Metalzoic ( Prog 483-492 ), while at the same time helping to launch Fleetway's cutting edge Mature title, Crisis. (The first 15 issues of Crisis had Pat Mill's Third World War in half of each 28page issue).
In America he pens Punisher 2099 and Ravage 2099 for Marvel and Zombie World for DarkHorse.
Almost every story Mills has written has politics stamped all over it none more so than his works in 2000AD, this has meant a mixed reception in some quarters. For six years he worked with co-writer Tony Skinner on ABC warriors, Finn.

Alan Moore -Writer
Alan Moore is now one of the most celebrated writers in comics for his intelligent, insightful and innovative work. But, like so many other British scribes , he got his start creating 4 and 5 page mini-masterpieces for 2000AD (the first of which appeared in Prog 170, July 1980, called 'Killer in the Cab' with art by John Richardson). Moore spent two years writing miniature gem
Future Shocks, Time Twisters, Abelard Snazz and various one-offs learning the skills that would bring him talent later, greater recognition. He has often said the years spent penning one-offs were some if the most rewarding times of his career.

Having created so many completes that two reprint albums were devoted to them, Moore finally got to write full-length series for 2000AD, creating Skizz with Jim Baikie and the wonderful Halo Jones with Ian Gibson also Dr & Quinch ( There is a Dr & Quinch dedicated webpage ). From then on he began writing for American companies, producing seminal works like Watchmen for DC and 'The Swamp Thing' before setting up his own imprint for Mad Love, Tom Strong, The league of gentlemen. 'From Hell' with Eddie Campbell, and the Violator mini-series for image.

Nemesis the Warlock. He created, wrote, drew BONJO FROM BEYOND THE STARS (progs 41-49) and DASH DECENT ( Progs 178-198 ). Shok!.

He is now illustrating Alan Moore's The league of Extra-Ordinary Gentlemen and he has revived his writing career with a new character, John Pain!

John Wagner - Writer
With Pat Mills he helped found classic new comics of 1970s, including Battle, Action and 2000AD itself. A true creator, his offspring include
Strontium dog, Ace Trucking, Robo-Trucking, Brit-cit babes, The Outcasts ( many of these with frequent co-writer Alan Grant ) and, most significantly of all, Judge Dredd. Wagner was born in Pennsylvania in 1949, moving to Scotland later, perhaps explaining why Dredd is an American character in a British comic.
Wagner has written thousands of pages of Dredd adventures, infusing the future world with an environment of more depth than virtually any other comic. His work has frequently been truly prophetic ( rising crime, unemployment, more laws and tougher policing ... this reaches its extreme in Mega-City One ) and remains at the peak of his creative powers after over decades.
The wagner & grant writing partnership broke-up during the OZ epic in 1988, over should Judge Dredd let Chopper go or not..(although the troubled mini-series The Last American for Marvel/epic was around the same time) for In 1990 Wagner and Grant started Judge Dredd Megazine for first time a slice of the profits. And with Al's Baby ( with Carlos Ezquerra ), The first creator owned series in a fleetway editions comic. the Bogie Man ( with Alan Grant ), and Chain gang for DC. as well as co-creating Button Man with Arthur Ranson With Alan Grant he is a consultant to the Judge Dredd Megazine and his writing is responsible for a large part of its success. He has returned as regular of Dredd in 2000AD in '94. 'I was a teenage tax consultant' and Ball Brothers continues John Wagner's trend of writing fiction like Button Man and getting it published in 2000AD, even without the sci-fi/fantasy. John Wagner is the sole Judge Dredd writer at the moment.
