I'm a huge War Of The Worlds fan so am loving Scarlet Traces.
Like the little things - the throwaway reference to Jack The Ripper and how new technology when being used still emits a green gas, just as in the novel.
The perspective on that chairs all wrong

I agree, I can't help wondering if that means Alan Moore has to revise his plans for book three of LOEG :)

For anyone who enjoyed Scarlet Traces they should read the H.G. Wells' war of the worlds (thats's if they havn't read it already), it's a short book and it helps you appreciate the cleverness and the horror of minor things like the pigeon catchers, zapping their prey and hoisting them onto baskets on their back, as once the martians did to their human victims...

And it's a great book too.

Yeah, "Scarlet Traces" is fab, isn't it? A right ripping yarn and capital illustration. Lots of nice touches, and plenty of references to stuff beyond H.G. Wells, like the Carry On's, Etienne-Louis Boull?e, Rudyard Kipling, Varney The Vampire... and now we get to see all of it. Hoorah!

Anybody else notice that Dredd seemed more heavily armed than usual on the cover?

Now THAT'S a law rod

According to D'Israeli, only about the first 5 pages appeared on Cool Beans, so I've moved Scarlet Traces from 'Beyond 2000AD' to the Megazine database where it is currently lying in 5th place, inbetween Young Death and The Jesus Syndrome. D'Israeli's response to this accolade was "Excellent news over the placing - it only took me 15 years to become an
overnight success :-)"

Or a scattergun, has the comics would have it. Judge pump was taken from the Dredd movie (shame on the game designers ... ;)

Er, I don't think PVS and the Watcher were referring to an actual Judge Pump, there is a more frightening weapon on display in that picture ;-)

Radlander was great, reminded me of Dead Man. Pobably because of the Rdigeway art and partial cursed earth setting.

Actually, I was more reminded of Ridgway's work on The Raggedy Man, also set in the Cursed Earth.
