Doubletree by Hilton, Bristol,
Saturday 26th May 2018
The year is 2079 and Dredd hits the streets of Mega-City One, where the craziest citizens and therefore the weirdest of crimes imaginable happen. This city is the toughest on Earth and to combat its harsh streets, you need the toughest of lawmen and the toughest going is Judge Joe Dredd!
Over the decades we have seen Dredd fighting crime in comics, novels, audio cd’s, fan films and two feature films. The latter 2012 film ‘DREDD’, starring Karl Urban and Lena Headley, brought a new legion of fans to Mega-City One, as the portrayal of Dredd by Karl Urban was universally enjoyed by fans and critics alike.
Now we have Lawgiver, the worlds only convention dedicated to Dredd fans! Lawgiver isn’t just dedicated to UK fans either; during the first Lawgiver, people travelled from mainland Europe to attend! This convention has been created by the fans, for the fans and with many creators in attendance there will be something for everyone. Creator panels (get your questions ready!), original art for sale, sketches to be drawn, books to be bought and signed and if you are lucky a pint or two at the bar with legends from the creative world of JUDGE DREDD! Further Justice Department Sanctioned activities will be announced but you’ll have to come along to see what!
Judges will be patrolling this event, including the classic comic style from Planet Replicas, the lauded Dredd 2012 film style and variations on both, so make sure you do one thing while you are enjoying yourself:
