Sci-Fi Special 2018 - Cover
« on: 08 June, 2018, 02:01:50 pm »
Was going to resurrect the previous thread, but it turned out to be filled with pages of pestilence and bile so here's a new one.

No idea who Tula Lotay is, but that's an absolutely cracking cover.

It's a really good cover. Both of them are. It'd be interesting to see some interior art from Tula Lotay, if she and the Prog can make something work.

More than a touch of the PJs in that Dredd, I feel…

It was a bit of a no-brainer when this was first announced but the more I see, the more stoked I am to get my grubby little paws on it.  Special ordered from the shop but I think I'll have to pick up a copy in the high street to encourage them to keep on stocking.

Brilliant cover. More Tula Lotay in the prog, please!

This is great - quite a retro feel to the painted style that makes it feel very sci-fi special/ Brit comic of old in general

She did a fantastic Anderson portrait for the 2000AD Vice Press series of prints too!

Incredibly good cover, top marks from the grimy end of the jury.  I'm really delighted to see we're getting a summer special this year, I'd somehow imagined that this year's scrotnig FCBD Prog was an either/or situation.  How much more output can Tharg wring from his poor droids in one year...!

Looking forward to it even more (nah, that's not possible, looking forward to it equally as much!)

Well, he’s got the women doing this one, so he’s probably paying them less.

I'm liking that cover a lot.

Excellent Dredd,, and i like the yellow swooshes, but Anderson is too young - to be fair almost everyone does this - she's a veteran judge aged 50+ but she always seems to be drawn young and sexy. (If she's illustrating a 'young Anderson' flashback story, I take it all back)

I don't usually go for posters, but the one included here is terrific.

Not sure how much they've kept it up in-story, but I remember an Anderson tale from years ago in which it was suggested that she wears a wig and, to an extent, sexes up as part of her uniform. Basically, it's an excuse to let artists draw her how they want I guess?

Back on topic - cracking cover, would support seeing more work by this artist in 2000AD!
