John Wagner is, to many fans, the very heart of the renowned comic 2000 AD. Involved from the earliest days of the comic in 1977, he co-created Judge Dredd and Strontium Dog, as well as a whole cast of other memorable characters. Wagner has worked extensively beyond the Thargian universe, originating and editing a number of British periodicals as well as writing many American standards. His Paradox Press graphic novel A History of Violence was made into a major film from director David Cronenberg.
