Alan Grant passes away at 73

The BBC reported the Scottish-born comics writer Alan Grant has died at age 73:
Tributes have been paid to the comic book writer Alan Grant who has died at the age of 73.

He worked on the likes of Judge Dredd and Batman in the course of a career spanning several decades.

A tribute from 2000 AD said that his impact on comics and standing in the industry could not be understated.

Born in Bristol, he grew up in Scotland and had lived in the village of Moniaive in Dumfries and Galloway for many years.

His writing career began with DC Thomson in Dundee before moving to London to work with IPC prior to being offered a position with 2000 AD.

His career spanned more than 40 years and during that time he worked for 2000 AD, DC Comics, Marvel, Lego and independent publishers.
2 years before his passing, he helped a village mend itself in the wake of Covid19, and was for the most part one of the far better writers hailing from the UK/Europe working in USA comics later in his career. So, it's a shame he's gone, because there were some pretty good stories he'd written in decades past for US publishers.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
