Thursday: 2:00-3:00 – Judge Dredd: Supercop or Satire?
He’s the hardline cop bringing justice to the mean futuristic streets of Mega-City One, but is Judge Dredd a hero or a villain? Is he a law enforcement role-model or, in the light of recent years, is he becoming a worrying vision of the future? Our panel of creators and commentators debate the pros and cons of the ultimate lawman of the future! Room: 29AB
Friday: 3:00-4:00 – “It’s Women Who Love Horror”: The Forgotten British Girls’ Comics
Misty was the groundbreaking British comic for girls that laid the way for women’s horror comics. Our diverse panel will discuss how, while horror has often been seen as a male-centric genre, it has always been driven by a huge female fandom and how the revival of Misty can once again pave the way for a new kind of comics. Moderated by journalist Rosie Knight. Room: 29AB
Saturday: 4:00-5:00 – Reimagining 2000 AD
2000 AD has been one of the most prolific and iconic publications on shelves since 1977.

Moderated by journalist Rosie Knight. Room: 4
