Judge Dredd Annual 1986

Even perps get robbed in Mega-City One - of everything! If you're committing a crime, best make sure you get good quality clothing first. No space for prudishness when you're a judge. Citi-Def - more trouble than they're worth. What would you do to get on the vid?

The Daily Dredds: 1983

The newspaper strips continue in to their third year (and were collected with those from 1981 to 1986 in a hardback edition a few years back). For the sake of logistics, I'm saving these up in to batches for coverage in this blog (it wouldn't exactly be practical to have one episode per day, interspersed … Continue reading The Daily Dredds: 1983

Judge Dredd Annual 1985: He is the law in Mega-City!

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!

2000AD Annual 1985

Cam Kennedy put in a quick succession of three Sláine covers (even though the story they illustrated was drawn by Mike McMahon). McMahon has a go at a character better associated with Kennedy in this cover featuring Sláine, Dredd and Rogue. This, and the Dredd annual, were the first annuals I read (from the House … Continue reading 2000AD Annual 1985

2000AD Sci-Fi Special 1984 Summer thrill-power! Starring Judge Dredd The Right Stuff Cinefax Colourscan!

Ian Kennedy provides a painted Dredd cover. Has Ian done Dredd yet? It won't be long before the Judge Amok story... The contents page is provided by Ron Smith and features Dredd, Hershey, Orson and Lewis (plus another judge) in profile. Judge Dredd: Booby Trap! by T.B. Grover and Cliff Robinson.

2000AD Prog 352: D.R. & Quinch go girl crazy! “I think I’m in l♡ve!” SKRAANG!

Three episodes in and this new series already has its second cover from Alan Davis, again heralding a new storyline. Should have mentioned that one reader wrote in to say they'd read 2000AD on top of the Great Pyramid at Giza. I mention this now because another reader sent in a photo (not published) of … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 352: D.R. & Quinch go girl crazy! “I think I’m in l♡ve!” SKRAANG!

2000AD Prog 351: Rogue Trooper Walking on the moon!

Cam Kennedy takes us to the moon (of Nu Earth) in this cover though I'm not sure if that's supposed to be Nu Earth in the background or a different moon? In fact, maybe that moon isn't actually orbiting Nu Earth itself and is revolving around another planet within sight of the black hole... Anyway, … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 351: Rogue Trooper Walking on the moon!

Judge Dredd Annual 1984: The world-famous hero of 2000AD comic!

Carlos is on the cover and unlike this year's 2000AD annual we get a cover tagline too. The contents page features a great pic of Dredd near the New New Grand Hall of Justice - either at sunset, the sun's rays washing it in pink - or it's been painted pink in the first place. … Continue reading Judge Dredd Annual 1984: The world-famous hero of 2000AD comic!
