Wail with JOY! Mark Russell does IDW mini-series
« on: 20 February, 2018, 08:12:30 pm »
Those grumpy chuffs over at 'Everything comes back' do have their uses they have kindly pointed me in the direction of this news

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/judge-dredd-goes-under-siege-new-comic-book-series-1086387?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter

Anyone who has read Mark Russell's Flintstones, Prez or Snagglepuss will know he could and should be the perfect writer for a different but spot on Dredd. I'm genuinely chuffed by this and can't wait to see what he comes up with.

You should all be gnashing you chops in anticipation!

Yeah,  sounds good (Kidney Hut is in my kind of MC-1). Think I'm in for this one - my first IDW book since the excellent Rogue Trooper.

I haven't seen any of his published work, but I worked on an unpublished book with artist Max Dunbar and he's pretty good. I could see him doing a decent job on this…

I saw this linked on ECBT too, Colin, and you beat me to the linkie. It sounds grand, and to hear from folk who've read other books by the writer sound interested I think I'll be picking this one up.

coincidentally, i just posted the (variant) cover for the first issue over in the Original Art thread :) i agree that Mark Russell seems a great fit for Mega City stories and it sounds like he's been working on the plot for a while, so hopefully it will be a good arc, if a bit short at only 4 issues.

Haven't read anything by this creative team (that I'm aware of), but will definitely be giving it a shot.

Having read them, very much no. (Actually, I didn't read all of them. I gave up halfway through Blessed Earth. It was just too much awful. Here's hoping Under Siege will be one of the rare decent IDW Dredd series, like Year One and the Mars Attacks crossover.

IDW's track record on Dredd reads like a poor report card. Hopefully this is closer to 2000 AD Dredd.

Well, most of the mini-series have been good (in fact, I think as long as there's four issues they haven't put a foot wrong).

Issue 1 is a good read with very solid artwork.

Already an improvement on that shite where Dredd crossed over into an alternate wossname.

Yeah, it's pretty solid. It wears the influences from the 2012 fillum very openly, but overall it's worth the cost of entrance. The tease displayed in the Thrill-mail this week also shows that the art is lovely, too.

I’ve just read the preview on the Thrillmail and this looks GREAT! I’m definitely going to buy this.
