Brian Bolland signs at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Saturday 12th January from 3 – 4pm!

Mega-City One, 2099. This vast urban nightmare has sprung up from the post-apocalyptic ashes of North America’s east coast. Each of the 400 million citizens based there is a potential criminal and only the Judges can prevent total anarchy. These future lawmen are judge, jury, and executioner. Toughest of them all is Judge Dredd – he is the Law!

By the end of 1977 Brian Bolland was regularly handling art chores for John Wagner’s scripts on Judge Dredd. All told, he illustrated 19 stories. Judge Dredd: The Complete Brian Bolland collects these stories in oversized format, featuring meticulous modern coloring by Charlie Kirchoff.

Brian Bolland has earned a reputation as one of the best cover artists in the industry, and his elegantly composed and beautifully rendered pieces have graced a host of titles, including ANIMAL MAN, BATMAN, THE FLASH, THE INVISIBLES, WONDER WOMAN and many more. He’s also the designer of our legendary ‘People Like Us’ t-shirts.

    Tom, I love this article, man. That quote from Barthes is so dciresptive of the nature of not just writing, but art in general. I love that concept that it’s about the relationship between the art and the reader, not between the artist and the reader, and I think it applies to any expressive medium, besides maybe non-fiction.I was actually having a related conversation with a friend the other night, and we came to the conclusion that a multi-author work like the current mainstream DC titles aren’t nearly as good as a single-author work like Invincible. What do you think?
