Who was Alan Grant?

Alan Grant was a Scottish comic book writer best known for writing a number of Judge Dredd titles in the weekly British sci-fi comic magazine 2000 AD.

He also wrote various Batman titles and was the co-creator of many of its famous characters including Anarky, Victor Zsasz and the Ventriloquist.

Born in Bristol, his family moved to Newtongrange in Scotland when he was just one. After leaving school, he briefly worked in a bank before becoming a writer.

Alan first started working the comics industry in 1967 when he became an editor for Dundee-based media company D.C. Thomson before moving to London to work for IPC.

After becoming a big name in the UK comic industry, he then got his big break in America and wrote strips for DC Comics and Epic Comics.

He was married to a woman called Susan Grant and they lived together in Moniaive, Dumfriesshire, but it’s unclear whether they had any children.
