I have been reading ahead a bit and am at the Kenny Who story. It is probably too late to say this for recording the Podcast but the man in the bar Kenny Who gets drunk with bears a striking resemblance to John Wagner. Considering the story is an affectionate nod to Cam Kennedy's experience in the US, perhaps this is him returning the complement to JW.

Of course, Cam Kennedy also bears a resemblace to - and sounds like - JW. IMO...

Henry Ford returns in two stories!  Both long form Daily Star Dredds:

The first of these(The imaginitavely titled "The Cursed Earth") has been reprinted in Vol 2 of the Daily Star Dredds - glorious Gibson art

The second story is sadly awaiting Vol 3  but is my favourite: "The Sheriff of Festering Hole" features Mike Collins art and some brilliant Dredd shenanigans as Dredd becomes Sheriff of an outlaw infested town and has to employ various dirty tricks to clear them out "What xactly does he mean by excessive facial hair?"  Genius!

Had to google the annual cover, which is not a good sign, as I immediately new exactly what the other covers were you discussed either side - If it was about money, why not get O'Neill to do the cover, and Smith could have done the interior page?

Yeah, definitely an odd choice. What a blistering cover it could have been with O’Neill on the front!

Presumably Smith didn't have to pay himself for that (and various other) covers, given he was art editor at the time...
For sure there's a lost of cost-saving going on in these annuals, kinda like the reverse of the current trend of saving up money to splurge on the end-of-year 100 page beasts!

but he still had to pay Kev for a full page of art - why not make that the cover?  I'm not entirely convinced Smith would have done the cover for nothing - some saving maybe, but no artist should accept no reimbursment for their time
