Coming not so soon- JUDGE DEATH- PERSONAL BUSINESS



Got a bit of time to prime you folk out there for this. You've all read DARK JUDGEMENT, right? Well at Bristol 2011 I was asked by artist ROLAND BIRD if he could have a Judge Death story to draw? Well, says I, I'll have a word with a chap I know who might just be able to help you out.

Enter Rich McAuliffe, who runs the Everything comes Back to 2000 AD blog and podcasts and stuff. That very evening, over my first and his not first beer of the night, I asked him about a script for roland. No worries, Say Rich, I'll get right on it.

Three months later I sent him an email to remind him of this conversation.

However, when he did deliver- he delivered. This strip is so good that we are going to be developing a whole new special to contain it. Custom, bespoke thril containment and delivery vessels are being designed to house this strip, and the others that will make up the as yet untitled special.

When can you get it? Not till it's ready, which won't be for a while yet, as we keep breaking the thrill buffers of all exposed. However, one day...

JUDGE DREDD- Master At Work

Back in 2010, I was working the table at Goldsmiths Uni for a one day gig in fair Londinium. A fine day, with a decent level of sales and some great chat.

Among them, if memory serves, was a discussion of how difficult it is to convey 'speed' in comics. The two gents I was speaking to were pitching me a strip featuring Mega-City One's finest on his Lawmaster. Intrigued I told them to make sure they mailed me the results when finished.

With that in mind I'm pleased to introduce Judge Dredd- Master at Work, by Andy Johnson and Stevie Denyer.

As always, click on the pics for larger images and please let me know what you think.
