About the Author
With over 300 2000 AD stories to his name - not to mention over 250 Daily Star Judge Dredd strips - Alan Grant's prolific creative record speaks for itself. Outside the Galaxy's Greatest Comic, Grant is well-known to Batman fans following a lengthy run on various incarnations of the title. More recently he has adapted Robert Louis Stevenson's classic novels Kidnapped and Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde in Graphic Novel format with artist Cam Kennedy. His television work includes scripts for the BBC series Ace Lightning and the Carnival of Doom. Arthur Ranson has long been one of 2000 AD's most popular artists, making his initial impact when working with Alan Grant on Judge Anderson, a lengthy partnership resulting in the creation of many great stories featuring the much-loved Psi Judge. He teamed up with John Wagner to create the highly acclaimed Button Man series, and later reunited with Alan Grant for Mazeworld. He has also co-created the character of pyrokinetic Mega-City One citizen Juliet November, and illustrated both Judge Dredd and several Future Shocks. Ranson's most recent non-2000 AD work has been for Marvel Comics, on X-Factor and latterly X-Treme X-Men X-Pose.

The story concerns Adam Cadman, a convicted murderer, who becomes the first person sentenced to death by hanging in 30 years since it was outlawed. The hanging is botched and Cadman finds himself at the end of his tether (quite literally) and drifts between two worlds. His body remains in our world, but his consciousness seems to travel to the Mazeworld, where he finds himself embroiled in a rebellion against the Maze-Lords, the corrupt ruling body of this fantasy world. The theme of mazes is utilised heavily with the corrupt Maze-Lords building them to use as dungeons to punish those who dare speak out against them. Mistaken for the legendary 'Hooded One', a figure from Mazeworld's history, Adam finds he has a second chance at his life, allowing him to find redemption for his crimes in our world and to become a hero.
The story is very well written by Alan Grant, who doesn't delve too deeply into the history of the Mazeworld or its politics, letting the reader piece together the mythology themselves. Where the story really sets itself apart from other fantasy strips published in 2000AD is the amazing artwork by Arthur Ransom, whose photo-realistic art immediately draws you into each panel and believe in this world of Mazes.Read more ›
