Influential British Comic-Book Artist Brett Ewins Passes Away, Aged 59

B Ewins

Legendary British comic artist Brett Ewins sadly passed away yesterday after a recent illness. Brett was known for his work on the UK’s best selling 2000 AD comic, which has given the world such classic characters as Judge Dredd, Slaine and Rogue Trooper amongst many others. He is probably best remembered by his fans for his work on Judge Anderson and Rogue Trooper, though he also drew a plethora of other characters for the British weekly sci-fi comic including – Bad Company, Tharg’s Future Shocks and the ABC Warriors. Brett also worked for DC/Vertigo on Swamp Thing and Hellblazer in the late 1980’s.

In 1988 he founded Deadline comics alongside fellow 2000 AD artist Steve Dillon, Deadline lasted a mere seven years but introduced the comic-book world to classic characters like Tank Girl. Our thoughts go to Brett’s family at this time.

    • I am a huge fan of 2000AD and fondly remember his work, especially on Judge Anderson, who is my personal favourite 2000AD character and Brett’s version of her will always be the greatest! Thanks for commenting my friend and have a great day.
