Books & Comics / Re: Essential Judge Dredd Apocalypse War
« Last post by Tjm86 on Today at 08:17:26 PM »
TBH I was looking at this and wondering.  Of the different collections we have the options of:
- original progs with colour spreads and b&w pages;
- various and sundry Titan editions in b&w (original sizing);
- mega collection in b&w IIRC (slightly reduced size);
- Eagle comics resized but fully coloured (American newsstand size);
- IDW digitally coloured (reduced to fit newsstand).

For me IDW colours are cracking but those covers?  Seriously, what were they thinking?  Eagle has a selection of Bolland or Gibson covers.  The artist that IDW contracted couldn't hold a candle to either of those.  Not using Ezquerra was sacrilege though. 

Having said that they did a variant for the first issue with Bolland's classic Block Mania cover fuller colourised, a work of beauty to be sure.

Looking at this, an Ezquerra cover with IDW colours would be my ideal.  If I didn't have the IDW version I would have seriously considered this.

Still waiting for the explanation why Hot-Shot Hamish is from Newcastle now.

It seems like the Properpocalypse is getting started up now after the Fakepocalypse of 2020.

Is Pussyfoot 5 really a Dredd spinoff?

Yes! Sort of.

I have it listed as "Dreddverse: Devlin Waugh".

[Not really answering any database conundrums with this information, I realize. But I am distracting myself with a Dreddverse Map of Linked Thrills that's been in the works for a while.]

This thread is by far the best porn on the internet. Have you lads thought about starting an OnlyFans? You could give up the day jobs and just talk tuples all day long for an audience of thirsty nerds...

I’m loving Dave Taylor’s art on Megatropolis, but really it’s got to be Henry Flint.

Flint is probably preeminent amongst current art bots and is up there in the elite group. For me he’s the modern equivalent of Mike McMahon. But he is also the modern equivalent of Kevin O’Neill.


This is what I would have written if I had the wit to do so.
Dave Taylor is phenomenal, but Flint's work is now iconic and definitive.

Henry Flint is my choice.

I loved Bisley's work on ABC Warriors and Slaine. Brilliant era defining work. I have spent a *lot* of time doodling copies of various Bisley designs like Lobo's space penguins and the Batmobile. However, when it comes down to a choice between these two titans, I too am with Kenny Who!

Cam Kennedy's future war work in the VCs and Rogue Trooper is unsurpassed. It's gritty and fantastic. If I imagine someone getting blown up by some kind of future plasma grenade in my head right now, it's definitely drawn by Cam Kennedy. Wooomf!

His work on Dredd is absolutely first rank too. Just look at some of the awesome work in The Midnight Surfer, The Taxidermist, the legendary Kenny Who, Two Ton Tony Tubbs, and that mad story about the rumour of the gas sniffer job going at the poison gas factory. Some really definitive Mega City One imagery. I also love the bonkers loose limbed angles the various characters are always drawn at in action. Really keeps the motion going.

Actually thinking of The Taxidermist, it has one of my favourite couple of panels anywhere in the sequence where Jacob Sardini is talking to his wife and by splitting the action into two panels Kennedy gently shows us that Mrs. Sardini is with us in stuffed form only.

Two great artists, but my choice to proceed is Cam Kennedy.
