This is a Judge Dredd Convention for all Dredd fans whether Comic or Film. Those attending are encouraged to get into the full swing of things and many are likely to be in costumes or uniforms, though not everyone is in to that. No need to feel pressure either way, the idea is to have fun among people who share an interest.
I am part of the Organising Group and run some of the Panels.
We heard from Johnny Vegas that he can’t make it to Lawgiver MkII because he is busy filming. He is a big fan of Judge Dredd and 2000AD so we really hoped he could make it.
Maybe next year.
So we don’t have Johnny Vegas to entertain you; what do we have?
We do have a large Guest list, as per the poster, who will be appearing in Panels to discuss varying topics for your enjoyment. The Guests will also be available for signings and some of the Artists will be sketching. You can read some short articles about some of the Guests HERE.
Among the planned entertainment are two Panel Games. There will be a Judge Dredd themed edition of ‘Just a Minute’ with Guests challenged to talk for a minute without repetition, deviation or ermmming. Also on the cards is a Dredd themed Room 101 where Dredd creators will be asked to place Dredd themed things in to Room 101… a little bit of controversy ahead?
There are a variety of competitions where prizes are up for grabs. These competitions include a Tombola and the now famed Judge Dredd Chin-Off, where a Guest will pick the winner who gurns the best Dredd face. The popular Dredd Universe Quiz will be here LIVE.
Prizes are pretty much under wraps at the moment though I understand that a prop from the Dredd (2012) film is among the prizes… It doesn’t have two wheels but it was ON something with two wheels.
