sister event Comics Uncovered, giving aspiring artists in the UK a once in a life time opportunity to learn the craft of inking from one of the most experienced and skilled inkers the industry has ever known.
This year at ICE is a real treat for 2000ad and Dredd fans, and we’re thrilled to top it off with the confirmation that Judge Dredd co creator and legendary artist Carlos Ezquerra is now confirmed as our latest star guest.
The Spanish artist is also well know for his role in creating Strontium Dog with writer and long time collaborator John Wagner as well as Dredd, but his first work for IPC in London was on the classic comic “Battle” illustrating strips like Rat Pack and Major Eazy.
Since then Carlos has inspired a generation of comic artists with his unmistakable and powerful drawing style on a variety of strips including dozens of classic Dredd and Strontium Dog stories with John Wagner, Third World War, which featured in Crisis Magazine, with Pat Mills and some Durham Red stories with Alan Grant to name just a few.
The is Carlos’ first visit to ICE and we are looking forward to welcoming to Birmingham in September for what promises to be a very special convention experience.
In that decade he wrote an immeasurable amount of material and established himself as a highly sought after and talented writer.
Most well known for the creation of the iconic Judge Dredd along with artist Carlos Ezquerra, Wagner also created other great characters like Strondium Dog and Robo Hunter for 2000ad.
In the 80’s he also worked alongside fellow writer Alan Grant on Detective Comics penning some of the most memorable Batman stories of that era.
His stand alone graphic novel “A History of Violence” was adapted into a film by maverick director David Cronenberg with an award wining screenplay by Josh Olsen.
Declan is an artist best known from his work on the recent MOON KNIGHT relaunch with Writer Warren Ellis for Marvel Comics.
He has worked on many other series for Marvel such as VENOM and DEADPOOL as well as work with other publishers such as CONAN for Dark Horse Comics and NORTHLANDERS for DC/Vertigo.
Ian Churchill has worked professionally in the comic book industry for over 20 years.
Debuting on Marvel’s X-Men titles, he has illustrated Cable, Deadpool, The Avengers, Superman, Supergirl, Teen Titans, Red Hulk, The Ravagers, Richard Starkings’ Elephantmen and his own group of supernatural heroes, The Coven. His creator-owned character, MARINEMAN, published by Image Comics, received an Eisner Award nomination for Best New Series when it debuted in 2010.
REVENGE, a collaboration with acclaimed broadcaster and comic creator Jonathan Ross also published by Image Comics, was published in 2014 to rave reviews from critics and fans alike. Churchill is currently working on MARINEMAN volume 2.
