About The Illustrators

Peter Doherty is primarily known to fans of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic as artist of the Young Death series, which opened the Judge Dredd: Megazine’s first volume, but he has also contributed extensively to Judge Dredd, working on the epic Judgment Day as well as many shorter stories, including John Wagner’s classic ‘Bury My Knee At Wounded Heart’. Outside of 2000 AD, Doherty’s comic work includes The Dreaming, Superman/Batman: World’s Finest and a Grendel Tales series and Shaolin Cowboy.

Frazer Irving is without question one of 2000 AD’s brightest new stars. His distinctive style, both on co-created strips like A Love Like Blood, Necronauts and Storming Heaven, as well as on Judge Dredd, Judge Death, Future Shocks, Terror Tales, Tharg the Mighty, The Scarlet Apocrypha and Sinister Dexter, have quickly brought him to the attention of the US industry. Irving recently completed both Klarion the Witch-boy for DC Comics and Iron Man: Inevitable for Marvel comics. Amongst other things he is currently working on Gutsville with Simon Spurrier, published by Image Comics.
