I guess that's the difference between Apples and Origins. :)

I really like Kurt's one, it's done in such a different style. I would encourage him to put Dredd's name in the badge though, if the rules allow modifications.

The oddest thing about Tarr's version of Dredd's uniform isn't that it's based on the film version, but that she thinks the armour plates are made of fabric. She's drawn creases in them.

However, my main objections to her style of art are all the dots everywhere and the weird, warped Manga-mouths.

We have to go back...into the origins of the forum.

I think the 'History of Dredd' storyline should be done ideally by Wagner.

But start from scratch. Forget the Bad Man storyline. I would concentrate on the birth of the judge system itself. Introduce us to the key characters that created Dredd's world.

I think the story has tremendous potential. The conflict between the existing police and judicial system versus the advocates of a new system of justice.

You could also explore how the citizens of old America react to the new Mega City One.There could be riots, terrorism, anti judge leagues etc.

There is a lot you could do!

The Invisible Hand, guiding 2000ad ... the only part he didn't get right was the fabulous idea of Fargo still being alive, which is everyone's favourite bit of Origins.

Thank you, Chaps. I still have a few left - including all my precious comp copies of Zarjaz, DogBreath, FutureQuake and Paragon and the few GNs I won in the Forum's very own writing competition. It would have killed me to lose those!

Am I right in thinking that the Bunrning Man/ Armageddon story lines, back around the time the Meg was launched, was intended to be an epic sweeping into the creation of the Judges?

What happened?

Why didn't it go ahead? Have we ever learned what the plot would have been?

My understanding is that, like Al's Baby, Armageddon: The Bad Man was just a creator-owned strip two Dredd stalwarts had on the go at a time The Megazine had more blank pages to fill than completed strips to fill them.

The (slender) Dredd connection was bolted on at the last minute, and (unlike Al's Baby) only mentioned in the editorial blurb around the strip, rather than on the page. 

Presumably, neither strip went any further with the idea of filling in the prehistory of Dredd's world because nobody had any kind of plan for how that would pan out or enthusiasm for doing so.  David Bishop tells you all about Wagner & Ezquerra's The Burning Man, a completely separate project (meant for the 2000jr spin-off from the nineties), HERE.
