The Judges were out in force on the Spring Bank Hol­i­day as Rule 32’ s Judge Dredd con­ven­tion Law­giver de­scended on Bristol. Spread across five rooms, Law­giver MKII was full of things to do and see. With two ded­i­cated rooms for pan­els run­ning all day ( cov­er­ing sub­jects such as Women in Dredd’s world, Mega City ar­chi­tec­ture, Dredd con­ti­nu­ity and the ethics of the Jus­tice Depart­ment), a room full of 2000 AD artists show­ing off and selling their wares, another with traders’ ta­bles, and a fi­nal room packed with props and cos­tumes from the 2012 Dredd film, the event cer­tainly felt big.

There were a good num­ber of Judge Dredd cre­ative types in at­ten­dance, in­clud­ing writ­ers Michael Car­roll and Rob Wil­liams, and artists Pete Do­herty, Jock, Pa­trick God­dard and Nick Per­ci­val. Dy­lan Teague and Ryan Brown were do­ing sketches for at­ten­dees and selling orig­i­nal art and prints of their work. All the writ­ers and artists were min­gling and chat­ting with guests, which gave the whole event a very re­laxed feel.

The event was a bril­liant suc­cess and a great day out and there’s al­ready talk of mak­ing next year’s Law­giver III even big­ger and bet­ter. www. rule32pro­mo­tions. co. uk 27- 31 Au­gust Can you han­dle five days in a West End cin­ema watch­ing the most twisted up­com­ing movies?
