David Bishop on The Weakest Link

David Bishop on The Weakest Link

Former editor of 2000AD David Bishop did comicdom proud this week by winning BBC contest The Weakest Link.

In an episode broadcast on Friday 23rd May (available via iplayer for the next seven days), David beat a sports journalist for an impressive cash prize of over £1400, although he modestly gave credit to rival Graham as the better player through the actual game.

David, whose credits include the recently published history of 2000AD, Thrillpower Overload, and who writes The Phantom for Egmont Sweden will I suspect soon become quite sick of people asking him what the Milky Way is also known as based on its Greek derivation.

I expect he’s got a very pointy sword to go with that dashing moustache and Musketeer-ish beard, so don’t push your luck!

The founder of downthetubes, which he established in 1998. John works as a comics and magazine editor, writer, and on promotional work for the Lakes International Comic Art Festival. Working in British comics publishing since the 1980s, his credits include editor of titles such as Doctor Who Magazine, Star Trek Explorer (previously known as Star Trek Magazine) and more. He also edited the comics anthology STRIP Magazine and edited several audio comics for ROK Comics. He has also edited several comic collections, including volumes of “Charley’s War and “Dan Dare”. He’s the writer of "Pilgrim: Secrets and Lies" for B7 Comics; “Crucible”, a creator-owned project with 2000AD artist Smuzz; and “Death Duty” and “Skow Dogs” with Dave Hailwood.
