Brian Bolland Signing at Forbidden Planet London

forbidden-planet-logoIf you’re in or around London this weekend then you’ve got the chance to meet UK comics royalty in the form of Brian Bolland as he signs the collected edition of his Judge Dredd stories.

Bolland’s work on Dredd includes some of the most recognisable stories in the character’s 35 year history, including the iconic panel below.



BRIAN BOLLAND will be signing JUDGE DREDD THE COMPLETE BRIAN BOLLAND (IDW) 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.
