Twenty years on Titan for Anderson? Alpha gets a break, a cadet faces an interesting situation and Myrddin gets macrocosmic.
Judge Dredd looks a bit green around the gills in this portrait while the almost full-length pic of the lawman does a jazz hand while firing in this Carlos Ezquerra cover. Meanwhile a ruddy Mega-Cityscape merges in to big Dredd-head's helmet. On the other side of the front cover, Carlos Ezquerra is back to present … Continue reading Judge Dredd Annual 1985: He is the law in Mega-City!
Brett Ewins is back on the cover for the first time in a while, and is it the first time he's been on Dredd since The DNA Man? That cover being reminiscent of the end scene of Doctor Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. Tharg's Nerve Centre brings news … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 267: The law comes to East-Meg One… with a BANG!
Nemesis is back, and so is Redondo on this cover (though you'd be forgiven for not recognising it is a Nemesis cover, if it wasn't for the logo). Tharg reveals in a response to an earthlet's letter in the Nerve Centre that bicycles were banned in Mega-City One as the lobbies of the city-blocks were … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 246: “Your bids, please, for these fine young humans!”
I'm more familiar with this cover being glossier, as it appeared on The Best of 2000AD Monthly No 8, which I've owned a copy of for longer than the prog it was reprinted from - I prefer the original printing of Kevin O'Neill's Nemesis cover though. The Nerve Centre gives Tharg a chance to explain … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 239: Nemesis vs Torquemada…
Mike McMahon provides the cover for the second Judge Dredd Annual which has a very green theme going on (border, gloves and boots, rooftop gardens and jetpacking perp's visor). The contents page continues with the McMahon artwork as Dredd and a cohort of judges (what is the collective noun for judges, anyway?) stand outside the … Continue reading Judge Dredd Annual 1982
After two weeks of O'Neill Nemesis covers, Bolland is on his second Judge Death cover - this time joined by Judges Fear, Fire and Mortis. It's good, though very similar to the last page of last week's episode of Dredd (though with added Death). This prog had a cover date of Saturday 15th August 1981 … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 225: Dark Justice in Mega-City One!
This is an excellent cover by Brian Bolland, featuring to contract killers targetting half of a couple in a window on the block opposite - from body language it looks like they're mid-argument, so no prices for guessing who took out the contract! The block in question is Rolf Harris Block - that hasn't aged … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 215: Meet Mega-City One’s Contract Killers!
The Mutant Army marches (more like charges) into battle on this Ezquerra cover - though I'm not sure how as they've been attacking the hovering city of Upminster in the story (though the other half of the Army are meant to be attacking Kreeler bases, so maybe we'll pay a flying (sorry!) visit to the … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 212: “Death to the Norms!” The Mutant Army is on the march – inside!
He may not be working on stories in the prog any time soon (due to the stories in the next JD annual mentioned in the Nerve Centre last week), but Mike McMahon's back on cover duties, putting in an eye-catching pic of Dredd dragging a scrawler away, in front of a high red wall with … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 206: Un-American Graffiti – Judge Dredd mounts a clean-up campaign… inside!
