Join Rob Williams, Dave Kendall & Lee Carter to celebrate 40 years of 2000AD – Hosted by Oxfam Cotham

British comics changed forever with the launch in 1977 of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic. 40 years later, the Bristol Festival of Literature gives you the chance to delve beneath 2000AD’s legendary Nerve Centre.

Writer Rob Williams (Judge Dredd, Low Life), and artists Dave Kendall (Dreams of Deadworld) and Lee Carter (Judge Dredd, Necrophim) reveal secrets bursting with Thrill Power. What makes a good 2000AD story? What is it really like to work with Tharg the Mighty? And is Mega City One now a little too close for comfort.

Moderated by Cavan Scott (Judge Dredd: Alternative Facts), this Zarjaz event will also include a creator Q&A and signing.
