The Law of Mega- City One is com­ing to Bris­tol on May Bank Hol­i­day as Rule32 is set to hold its sec­ond an­nual cel­e­bra­tion of all things Dredd. Af­ter last year’s very suc­cess­ful first con in Birm­ing­ham, Law­giver MkII is ex­pand­ing to a larger venue in a dif­fer­ent city, which means there will be more rooms for pan­els on the finer points of fu­ture law en­force­ment, the best ways of tak­ing down perps and how to sur­vive in Mega- City One. Prospec­tive re­cruits to the Mega- City Jus­tice Depart­ment will also find en­ter­tain­ment in var­i­ous forms, in­clud­ing a traders’ room, screen­ings, guest in­ter­views, sketches and sign­ings, and some in­ter­ac­tive ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing com­pe­ti­tions, an evening quiz and a “Judge Dredd Chin Off ”, which will at­tempt to de­cide who has the most Dredd- like vis­age.

Jus­tice Depart­ment- ap­proved guests will pri­mar­ily be artists and writ­ers who have worked on Judge Dredd over the years. Some big names have al­ready been an­nounced such as artists Ian Gibson, Boo Cook, Dy­lan Teague, Nick Per­ci­val and John Hig­gins. Top Dredd writ­ers Michael Car­roll and Rob Wil­liams will also be at the event and Rule32 is promis­ing more ex­cit­ing guest an­nounce­ments over the com­ing weeks.

Like the first con­ven­tion, Law­giver MkII prom­ises to be a very so­cial gath­er­ing with a laid- back at­ti­tude and the op­por­tu­nity to chat with artists, writ­ers and other fans with­out the costs and queues as­so­ci­ated with larger scale con­ven­tions. For fans of Judge Dredd and 2000 AD this con­ven­tion is the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to meet and min­gle with like- minded peo­ple. There will also be a large num­ber of Mega- City One Judges pa­trolling the venue so there will be plenty of op­por­tu­ni­ties to get ar­rested or have a photo with one of the Big Meg’s finest law keep­ers; there’s even talk of get­ting enough peo­ple in Judge Dredd uni­forms to set a world record.

Prospec­tive at­ten­dees can or­der tick­ets and get more in­for­ma­tion and up- to- date guest de­tails at Rule32’ s web­site: http://www.rule32pro­mo­tions.co.uk.

Ph­woar, look at the size of those jaws! One of th­ese men did not get the email.
