Pat Mills created 2000AD, which celebrated its 40th birthday in 2017 and is the subject of his autobiography: Be Pure! Be Vigilant! Behave! 2000AD and Judge Dredd: The Secret History. He also came up with the concept of the girls’ mystery comic Misty, now enjoying new success in collected editions.
He was the key writer on Crisis with his political thriller, Third World War, illustrated by the late Carlos Ezquerra. Some of his well-loved and long-running British series are Charley’s War, Sláine and Nemesis the Warlock.
He developed and wrote Judge Dredd, as well as Doctor Who audio plays and comics, Dan Dare, and series for Marvel and DC Comics. His Marshal Law – co-created with Kevin O’Neill – now published by DC Comics, was a New York Times Best Seller.
He continues to write all manner of challenging stories today, including the French graphic novel series Requiem: Vampire Knight, illustrated by Olivier Ledroit.
He has two books published of his four-volume dark comedy thriller series Read Em and Weep (text novel), with the third book, The Grim Reader, projected for 2021.
Pat’s recently completed work on an exciting new sf anthology comic – Spacewarp, due out at the end of October 2020, and available for pre-order NOW.
The story begins in a garden shed in Scotland sometime in 1971…
2000AD and Judge Dredd celebrated its 40th birthday in 2017, and Pat at last has written the definitive history of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic, and the turbulent, extraordinary and exciting events that shaped it.
Be Pure! Be Vigilant! Behave! is the infamous slogan of Torquemada, the comic’s favourite villain. It once appeared on the Berlin Wall, and symbolizes the subversive nature of 2000AD that changed so many readers’ lives and influenced generations of film directors, actors, rock bands, novelists and even school headmasters.
Everything you’ve always wanted to know about Judge Dredd, Slaine, Nemesis, ABC Warriors, Flesh, Bill Savage and more, is in this book. Plus the writers and artists who created them and the real-life people and events they drew on for inspiration. The scandals, the back-stabbing and the shocking story that was regarded as “too sensitive” to ever see the light of day is finally told.
