Alan Moore: Perhaps the most widely respected comic writer of the modern era, Alan Moore's contribution to the comics world is incalculable. Creator of some of 2000 AD's most popular series, including Abelard Snazz, The Ballad of Halo Jones, D.R. & Quinch and Skizz, he has also worked on A.B.C. Warriors, Ro-Busters, Rogue Trooper, Ro-Jaws' Robo-Tales, Tharg the Mighty, Time Twisters and several one-off strips. Outside of 2000 AD, Moore is best known for his work on the classic Watchmen, which redefined the superhero genre in 1986, but this is simply touching the surface of a career which has included definitive Joker tale Batman: The Killing Joke, From Hell (now a major motion picture starring Johnny Depp), Lost Girls, Miracleman, V For Vendetta, and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Dave Gibbons: Dave Gibbons is one of 2000 AD 's most popular artists, having created Harlem Heroes and Rogue Trooper. He has also pencilled A.B.C. Warriors, Dan Dare, Judge Dredd, Mega-City One, Ro-Busters, and many others. Beyond 2000 AD, Gibbons is unquestionably best known for his work on the award-winning classic Watchmen (with Alan Moore), but he has also pencilled Batman, Green Lantern, Superman, Star Wars and Kingsman (with Mark Millar), now a motion picture directed by Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass, Stardust). Brian Bolland: Perhaps the most popular 2000 AD artist of all time, Brian Bolland's clean-line style and meticulous attention to detail ensure that his artwork on strips including Dan Dare, Future Shocks, Judge Dredd and Walter the Wobot looks as fresh today as it did when first published. Co-creator of both Judge Anderson and The Kleggs, Bolland went on to pencil Camelot 3000 and Batman: The Killing Joke for DC Comics.
