This is by way of a reminder regarding two local meet-ups of 2000AD/Dredd fans (Leeds & London) & a new date for the regular Belfast group.
These are casual meetings in a pub for like-minded folk to have a natter.
The image used in this article is from the fan film Judge Minty and features Judge Dredd artist Greg Staples portraying Judge Dredd, the voice of Dredd was Jared Butler. Greg’s latest Dredd story is Dark Justice which started in the 100 page bumper Prog 2015 and is currently ongoing.
Our friends in Belfast have a regular monthly meet-up. Small in number but big in attitude, and growing. They put our Scotland chums to shame… The Scottish meet-up gets cancelled more than it happens. The London group is pretty big, they thing 20 turning out is a quite do I think. There is a Welsh Contingent but I haven’t heard any recent plans from them. Leeds is small and annual at the moment, I organise it and am happy to make it more regular if we get the interest.
There is also a Judge Dredd Convention in May – a bit more detail HERE and I’ll bring updates as the date gets closer. I’m involved in that, I run some of the Panels with those famous comic creators on a stage.
If you run, attend, or just know of a local meet-up let me know in the comments below or on the Judge-Tutor Semple Facebook Page and I will include them in the next article I put out about these kind of things.
