Judge Dredd Weekly Issue 1
Here is another British comic cover that we wish was real.
After last week’s cover
issue 282 created by artist Graeme Neil Reid (the pencils of which are still available to win in the current Scotch Corner
competition) this cover from writer and designer Michael Carroll
depicts the first issue of a weekly Judge Dredd comic from the IPC era.
Using a Carlos Ezquerra image of Dredd and the enticement of free gift of a Judge’s shield that you could add your own name onto (assuming that it wasn’t too long of course), you just know that you would have splashed out 10p to read more Dredd, Walter The Wobot, Max Normal and Psi-Judge Anderson stories.
Michael has more cover designs on his site
including a picture of a weighty tome entitled Alan Moore: Selected Notes To The Milkman, Volume 1: 1982-1987 –
a dig not at the man himself but rather at the dedicated fans who must read everything that Moore has ever written.
News, reviews, interviews and features for print and on-line: Spaceship Away (since October 2005), Bear Alley (since February 2007), downthetubes (since June 2007), and Eagle Times (since October 2008). Plus DC Thomson’s The Art Of Ian Kennedy, Titan’s Dan Dare and Johnny Red reprints, Ilex’s War Comics: A Graphic History and 500 Essential Graphic Novels, and Print Media’s The Iron Moon and Strip magazine.
