A bone fide British comics legend, John was one of the key voices of the British comics renaissance of the 1970s.
Best known as the co-creator, with artist Carlos Ezquerra, of the character Judge Dredd, John continues to be active in the British comics industry with an eclectic body of work which includes Strontium Dog, Doctor Who, Robo-Hunter and Batman.
Judge Dredd has twice been adapted for film, most recently with the critically acclaimed 2012 Dredd, while David Cronenberg adapted Wagner's graphic novel A History of Violence into the 2005 film of the same name.
John continues to write for 2000 AD and Judge Dredd Megazine and it is an honour to welcome John to the Starburst International Film Festival.
