John Wagner is a comic writer who was born in the USA and moved to Scotland in his childhood. He is currently 2000AD's most prolific contributor, having contributed two and a half thousand scripts to 2000AD and the Judge Dredd Megazine (even though there haven't been that many issues published yet)[1].

Wagner regrets killing off some of the characters he created so readily, and would think longer about doing the same again[2].

He prefers to write his own characters, feeling more comfortable writing to his own rules[2].
