Mike McMahon is one of the early and most influential artists of the British 'Judge Dredd' comic. He took over from the first 'Dredd' artist Carlos Ezquerra right after art college in the late 1970s. McMahon shaped the character, with big boots and crumpled clothes, and graphically introduced many secondary characters. Throughout the years, McMahon kept changing his style for many other comics, such as 'Slaine', 'Mutomaniac', 'The Last American' and 'Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight'. He returned to the 'Judge Dredd' comic in 1994, doing the artwork for a four-part story.
