Countdown to Lawgiver MkII – Guest Spotlight – Peter Doherty

PanelPanelPeter Doherty will be appearing at Lawgiver for the second time, having taken part in the inaugural event last year.

I am part of the Organisers Group for this Event and I’m the Moderator on some of the Panels. Last year I had the oppurtunity and pleasure to host a Panel with Peter Doherty, David Roach and Nick Percival.

Lawgiver MkII will be at Hilton Doubletree, Bristol, Bank Holiday Monday 25th May. Tickets available from Eventbrite. The picture above was ‘borrowed’ from John Burdis’ write-up of last year’s event on the Cellar of Dredd.

Peter Doherty started on Judge Dredd in Judge Dredd Megazine issue 1 with the John Wagner scripted Judge Death origin story Young Death in October 1990. His first Judge Dredd in 2000AD was Justice One by Garth Ennis in Prog 766 in January 1992.

And in fact in the pagers of 2000AD & the Megazine he has never left the world of Dredd. He has worked on stories featuring the main man himself as well as Devlin Waugh and Armitage.

Recently Pete worked on MPH with Mark Millar and Duncan Fegredo.

You can sometimes meet Pete at Royal Armouries in Leeds as part of their Pow! weekend celebration the arms and armour of comics and film, where he has done some cartooning lectures for children. Last year he also ran a marvelous discussion with Adi Granov as part of Pow!

A very interesting talker who keeps a Panel moving along nicely. Indeed at Thought Bubble Panels he runs are marvelous, where he interviews other Artists while they sketch..
