  1. Latest Comic Guest Announcement - Andy Diggle Attending: Saturday & Sunday The Losers, 2000AD, Hellblazer, Daredevil, James Bond Andy Diggle is a comics writer and former editor of cult British comic 2000AD. He is currently writing JAMES BOND. Andy is best know for collaborating with Jock on THE LOSERS, which was adapted into the film starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Chris Evans, Zoe Saldana and Idris Elba; and GREEN ARROW: YEAR ONE, which partially inspired the hit TV show ARROW. Andy's creator-owned work includes SNAPSHOT, RAT CATCHER and SILENT DRAGON. His work for US publishers includes BATMAN, SUPERMAN, HELLBLAZER, SWAMP THING and ADAM STRANGE for DC Comics; DAREDEVIL, CAPTAIN AMERICA and THUNDERBOLTS for Marvel; DOCTOR WHO for IDW; THIEF OF THIEVES for Skybound; and UNCANNY and CONTROL for Dynamite. http://www.andydiggle.com/
  2. Latest Comic Guest Announcement - Jock Attending: Saturday & Sunday Artist: Wytches; The Losers; 2000 AD MERE months after drawing a contribution to a 1999 issue of 2000 AD, Jock became something of a regular on the self-styled Galaxy's Greatest Comic. Between 2000 and 2003, the artist born Mark Simpson worked on a variety of strips for the British weekly and for its companion, the monthly Judge Dredd Megazine. Among them were Judge Dredd and Lenny Zero, which he co-created with writer Andy Diggle. Jock's invasion of the US market began with a single 2003 issue of Hellblazer for Vertigo (DC's mature readers imprint). Although he was soon in demand as a cover artist, before the year was out he and Diggle launched The Losers, a Vertigo series that ran 32 issues of which Jock illustrated 21 while producing all the covers. By the time The Losers ended in 2006 the artist – who had drawn a 2006 issue of Swamp Thing along the way – was creating an ever-increasing number of covers, becoming the regular cover artist on Scalped when that Vertigo comic debuted in 2007. Shortly after (and again in collaboration with Diggle) he took on DC's six-part Green Arrow: Year One and virtually simultaneously Faker, a six-issue Vertigo mini. His first Marvel work – an 11-page contribution to the third and final issue of Dark X-Men: The Beginning – came in 2009 with his most ambitious project to date, Vertigo's John Constantine, Hellblazer: Pandemonium graphic novel, following early in 2010 as did a three-issue run on Detective Comics to which he would return for eight more issues in 2011. With his time increasingly taken up by covers as well as by producing concept art and promotional campaigns for the movie industry, Jock's storytelling output has lessened significantly. At the end of 2012 he drew four issues of Batman after a reunion with Diggle for Snapshot, a strip first serialised in Judge Dredd Megazine earlier in the year before being reissued in the US as an Image four-parter in 2013. In 2014 Jock drew two issues of Adventures of Superman and contributed to Vertigo Quarterly CMYK #1 before moving to Image to launch Wytches. Most recently he also drew a fill-in issue of Batman.
  3. Latest Guest Announcement - Andy Diggle Attending: Saturday and Sunday Writer: The Losers, Daredevil, 2000 AD, Six Guns, Thunderbolts, Green Arrow: Year One Writer: The Losers, Daredevil, 2000 AD, Six Guns, Thunderbolts, Green Arrow: Year One TWO YEARS after joining the Judge Dredd Megazine editorial team, Andy Diggle formally became editor of the title as well as its long-running parent, 2000 AD. He remained in the post for two years, resigning to embark on a freelance writing career in 2002. His earliest stories appeared in 2000 AD but he was quickly headhunted by DC's mature readers imprint, Vertigo. A four-issue Hellblazer: Lady Constantine (2003) led to The Losers, which ran 32 issues until 2006. Both launched in 2003, the same year he collaborated with Judge Dredd co-creator John Wagner on the four issues of Judge Dredd vs Aliens: Incubus for Dark Horse and a year before he relaunched Swamp Thing for Vertigo. After scripting that title's initial six-chapter serial Diggle moved on to his first overt excursion into the world of superheroes. An eight-parter for DC, Adam Strange​ was followed by 2005's six-issue Silent Dragon, a futuristic creator-owned title for DC's Wildstorm imprint after which the writer authored his first project for Marvel. A 2006 one-shot, Punisher: Silent Night was followed by the first six issues of DC's Batman Confidential and Gamekeeper – a five-parter co-written by filmmaker Guy Ritchie – for Virgin before he returned to Vertigo for 18-issues of Hellblazer alongside which he also scripted 2007's Green Arrow: Year One six-parter for DC Leaving Vertigo in 2009 Diggle moved to Marvel for what would be his most high profile series to date. He remained on Thunderbolts for only for 11 issues but his next move – to Daredevil – took his career to even greater heights. In between he authored Ratcatcher, a 2010 graphic novel for the newly established Vertigo Crime line, it indicated a new direction for Diggle, one that would infuse his Daredevil work. His 12-issue run on the title segued into Shadowland, a major 2010 five-parter that wrapped up the blind superhero's current title and which – along with the Diggle-written Daredevil: Reborn – laid the groundwork for a Daredevil relaunch. The writer followed that 2011 five-parter with another Marvel miniseries of the same length. Released in 2012, Six Guns was also more about crime than about bombastic superhero activities while Snapshot (which marked his return to Judge Dredd Megazine) was even more ground level. Next, however, came classic science fiction as IDW commissioned Diggle to relaunch BBC TV's iconic Time Lord in an ongoing Doctor Who comic for the American market. But then it was back to crime as the regular writer of The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman's Image series Thief of Thieves and – after an abortive flirtation with DC's Action Comics – Uncanny, a six-part "paranormal thriller" for Dynamite's crime line. Currently scripting Thief of Thieves and the recently launched Uncanny Season 2, Diggle did step back into the world of superheroes in 2014 for Marvel's four-issue Captain America: Living Legend.

  6. Latest Comic Guest Announcement - Jock CELEBRATING 20 YEARS OF VERTIGO Artist:The Losers; Faker Cover artist: The Losers; Scalped Jock began his professional career at 2000 AD, on series including Judge Dredd and Lenny Zero, the latter with writer Andy Diggle. It was with Diggle that he got his big break in the American comic book market at DC Comics and their Vertigo imprint, working on The Losers and Green Arrow: Year One. Also at Vertigo and with Mike Carey, another former 2000 AD writer, Jock worked on an issue of Hellblazer and the Faker limited series, returning the character John Constantine in the graphic novel Hellblazer: Pandemonium with Jamie Delano. Following his run on Green Arrow he got more work on main DC universe titles, in particular two storylines on Detective Comics, the first featuring Batwoman and the second Batman. On April 9, 2011 Jock was one of 62 comics creators who appeared at the IGN stage at the Kapow! convention in London to set two Guinness World Records, the Fastest Production of a Comic Book, and Most Contributors to a Comic Book. With Guinness officials on hand to monitor their progress, writer Mark Millar began work at 9am scripting a 20-page black and white Superior comic book, with Jock and the other artists appearing on stage throughout the day to work on the pencils, inks, and lettering, including Dave Gibbons, Frank Quitely, John Romita Jr., Adi Granov, Doug Braithwaite, Ian Churchill, Olivier Coipel, Duncan Fegredo, Simon Furman, David Lafuente, John McCrea, Sean Phillips and Liam Sharp, who all drew a panel each, with regular Superior artist Leinil Yu creating the book's front cover. The book was completed in 11 hours, 19 minutes, and 38 seconds, and was published through Icon on November 23, 2011, with all royalties being donated to Yorkhill Children's Foundation.
  7. Andy Diggle CELEBRATING 20 YEARS OF VERTIGO Writer:The Losers; Swamp Thing; Rat Catcher Diggle took over editing 2000 AD and Judge Dredd Megazine in the year 2000 and, as editor, was credited (most frequently by David Bishop, who originally employed him) as having spearheaded a return to the "old school" values of 2000 AD. While at 2000 AD he wrote a number of stories, including the Judge Dredd spin-off Lenny Zero with Jock, with whom he would continue to collaborate after his move to American comic books. Diggle spent a total of five years under exclusive contract to DC Comics, for whom he wrote Lady Constantine, Batman Confidential, Green Arrow: Year One (again with Jock), Adam Strange: Planet Heist and Hellblazer. This was followed by Guy Ritchie's Gamekeeper, which was shortly thereafter optioned by Warner Bros, for Virgin Comics. Diggle also wrote the webcomic prequel to the Bionic Commando game, after having been hired by Capcom to script a playable test level during game development. In 2008, Andy Diggle was announced as the new writer of Thunderbolts, his first work at Marvel Comics since his Punisher one-shot.[8] The changes in the Thunderbolts were part of the Secret Invasion-aftermath storyline, Dark Reign, and Diggle also wrote a limited series which ties into it, Dark Reign: Hawkeye. Diggle signed an exclusive deal with Marvel early in 2009 and would go on to take over the writing of Daredevil after Ed Brubaker's departure in issue #500, wrote Dark Reign: The List - Daredevil and the main limited series in the Daredevil storyline Shadowland.
