Another great one. One of my favourite ever Dredd scenes. By Bolland and Leach.


It's a joke. I was joking.

Wow. That's been really well looked-after. It's a miracle all that Letratone hasn't a) discoloured, or b) just peeled off.

Lovely page.

Yup - lovely page indeed! (Although as a kid the idea of anyone but Bolland inking Bolland was like fingernails down a blackboard.)

Is the Letratone that prone to aging badly?  I think the earliest artwork I have with it is a McMahon Cursed Earth page (Prog 66) and that's still looking great...  I guess it's partly down to how the art's been stored / handled / displayed.

Less so than the paper and ink they used for the lettering! I know (from having tried to use the damn stuff many years ago) that it's not especially sticky, so it is prone to peeling, especially if it's been trimmed to sharp points to fit a particular shape/space.

A nice bit of Austin Dredd

Pinkest cover ever!
Made for covers rather than strip work, even the mad anatomy was appealing. Great!

Loved Mick's strip work. He was often drafted in at the last minute as he was so fast.

Aye, such bizarre anatomy - but somehow, it works!

Another Mick Austin piece - I got this recently - From the 1994 Yearbook cover the pages are a bit curly as they were stripped from the backing board for drum scanning.






And my favourite Jock cover.

It's a fantastic piece.
Jock had such an instant impact.

The Black and White version of a recent Mike Allred commission of mine. Guess the character?



The colourised print version that came with it.

I'm not seeing the pictures - is it just me, as where Michael Allred is involved I'm very interested.
