Devlin Waugh: Red Tide

Illustrated by Steve Yeowell and Colin MacNeil
Published by 2000 AD
Distributed by Simon & Schuster

Vampirism can be a bally intolerable nuisance to one's social life - ask Devlin Waugh. Having been transformed into a blood-sucking fi end when on a mission for the Vatican, the one-time Corinthian is now a shadow of his old, jovial self. But now a terrifying evil from Devlin's past has returned with an unquenchable thirst for mayhem. Will the former connoisseur of au courant be equipped to defeat this menace? Or is the world destined to suffer in the putrescent grip of this supernatural, degenerate force? This transcendent tome is brought to you by the considerable talents of John smith (Indigo Prime) Colin McNeil (Judge Dredd) John Burns (Nikolai Dante), Sean Phillips (Fatale), Peter Doherty (The Dreaming) and Jock (Batman, Judge Dredd).

John Smith is unquestionably a 2000 AD hero, with a host of creative credits to his name, including A Love Like Blood, Devlin Waugh, Firekind, Holocaust 12, Indigo Prime, Pussyfoot 5, Revere, Slaughterbowl, Tyranny Rex, Leatherjack, Dead Eyes and Cradlegrave. Smith has also written Future Shocks, Judge Dredd, Judge Karyn, Pulp Sci-Fi, Robo-Hunter, Rogue Trooper, Tales from Beyond Science, Vector 13 and Tales from the Black Museum. Smith’s work beyond the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic includes the long-running New Statesmen series in Crisis, DC/Vertigo’s Hellblazer and Scarab, and Harris Comics’ Vampirella.

Steve Yeowell has been a massively popular 2000 AD artist, since his debut as artist of the classic Zenith. He is also co-creator of Maniac 5, Red Fang, Red Razors and The Red Seas, and has pencilled Armitage, Black Light, DeMarco, Devlin Waugh, Future Shocks, Judge Dredd, A Life Less Ordinary, Nikolai Dante, Pussyfoot 5, The Scarlet Apocrypha, Sinister Dexter, Tharg the Mighty, Vector 13 and Black Shuck. His work outside the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic includes Batman, Doom Patrol, The Invisibles, Sebastian O, Skrull Kill Krew, Starman and X-Men.

Since joining 2000 AD in 1986 Colin MacNeil has worked on many strips, including Chopper: Song of the Surfer and the infamous death of Johnny Alpha in Strontium Dog: The Final Solution. He went on to collaborate with John Wagner on the award-winning America for the Judge Dredd Megazine. He has also worked on Shimura, Maelstrom and Fiends of the Eastern Front: Stalingrad, and, outside of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic, provided the atmospheric artwork on Bloodquest for Games Workshop. He also enjoys creating large abstract paintings. He says it’s art therapy!
