Meanwhile… Comic Con is proud to announce special guest Mick McMahon!
Mick did the usual banging and crashing about until he became a regular contributor to 2000AD starting with Prog 2. He drew several characters for the comic, most notably Judge Dredd, Slaine, and the ABC Warriors. And Superbean, of course.
He sought pastures new in the mid-eighties. The Last American, written with aplomb by John Wagner and Alan Grant, was probably his only work that troubled the scorers during his brief flirtations with Marvel Comics and DC Comics, though he did enjoy working on Alien Legion and Batman Black and White, the latter being his only foray into writing (performed under the benevolent eye of Mister Gibbons).
His favourite out of all his comics work is the relatively obscure Decap Attack in the British weekly Sonic the Comic, Nigel Kitching and Richard Piers Rayner scripting. He also has high hopes for Kestrels, an upcoming series of graphic novels in collaboration with Ben Dickson.
Along the way he has also dabbled in designing for films and video games, and for a few years he even had several ‘proper’ jobs working in computer game studios.
