Somehow I managed to lop off the ending of this episode, just uploaded the full version for an extra 45 seconds of goodbyes.

Dave Heeley from the 1977-2000AD Facebook group joined me at the Birmingham ICE convention to discuss the great Dredd epic that nearly saw the end of the character. This episode was recorded before the sad news of the passing of Carlos Ezquerra who was one of the true legends of British comics. His beautiful work on Necropolis is just one of the many stunning creations we have to remember him by.

Watched it again last night with my daughter and she noticed the shining inspired wallpaper in their dressing room.

Really enjoyed that podcast! I loved Scream as a kid (before my mother banned it) and now I really want to revisit the Dracula Files.

Also great to hear the phrase 'mouth of teeth'; reminding me that your ma's from this side of the Irish sea (unlike my own, who's from Peter Kay country).
Cheers, JBC. As soon as I said it I was kicking myself that I didn’t say “a mouthful of teeth” which is, I think, the correct Irish expression as my mum uses it.  :-[

Pepper’s Ghost

The boy looked spooked by the holding cell as Crain walked in with the social worker.

“Toady, Judge Crain wants to ask you some questions. Like we talked about.”

“OK.” The juve looked anything but OK to Crain.

“Alright, Toady,” he began “tell me what happened to your friends.”

“He killed them, and he wants to kill me. He’s after me too.”

“Who?”

“The Boogieman.”

“The Boogieman??”

“See I told you he wouldn’t believe. Nobody believes me!” The boy was near to tears.

“Be calm. Tell me what you saw.”

“Go on, Toady. Tell him.”

The boy dropped his head, “Me and Chip and Bailey, we went round old Pepper’s place. We didn’t mean any harm, we was going to prank him, that’s all. He gets real mad when we ring and run.”

“Is that what you did tonight, ring and run?”

The boy sniffed, “Didn’t have time to run. He was waiting for us, opened the door straight away and there he was.”

“Citizen Pepper?”

“Looked like him but the face was wrong, like someone was wearing it as a mask. Wasn’t Pepper, was the Boogieman.” The boy sniffed and wiped at his face with his sleeve, “He lifted Chip and Bailey off their feet like they was nothing and yelled at me.”

The boy was shaking with silent sobs.

“What did he say?”

“He ... said he’d been watching me, watching from my closet in my room, and he ... he ... he asked if Mom was still putting the plastic under-sheet on my bed. No one knows about that. It was only a few weeks, after Dad left, no one knows that ... no one except the Boogieman.”

Toady tried to pull himself together as he dragged another silver smear across his sleeve, “Then he pulled them inside and slammed the door. Heard ‘em screaming as I ran. The Boogieman took my friends and I ran. Ran and hid like a baby.”

“We searched the hab and didn’t find Chip or Bailey. We found Pepper’s body though, looks like natural causes. No sign of your friends.”

“No Boogieman?”

“There is no Boogieman, Toady. Your friends are missing, and we’ve got a body, but that’s it. Just another night in the block.”

“He knew stuff about me. Wasn’t Pepper, it was the Boogieman.”

The social worker put her arm round the sobbing child and spoke to Crain.

“He needs a break now, Judge. You can question him later.” Without waiting for an answer she led Toady from the room.

“You’ll be ok now. The Judge will find your friends, you’ll see.”

“He won’t” sobbed the boy. “Wait, where are you going?”

“I left my bag, I won’t be a minute.”

She strode back to the door and walked straight in.

“Judge ...”

The Boogieman held the Crain skin mask in one dripping hand. As he turned towards her the ragged hole in his face twisted into a ghastly parody of a smile which then spoke wetly,

“You came back, how simply delicioussss.”
