I owe you big time for this, Pete - ticks an important box for me, this one.

A pleasure sir! It was hard to let it go but it was worth it for those photos of you in the bath...

I'd long suspected this was the secret of ming's collection... but now I wonder if Pete trades his own special tub-time snaps to pay for all those commissions?  ;)

Oh Noes!  My secret's out!  Luckily, a strategically positioned loofah protects my modesty in most pics.  In my defence, I was young and needed the money.

By comparison, the number of art droids with compromising pics of Pete must, by now, be staggering.

 :D

I've been busy updating my CAF gallery with direct scans rather than photos of my 2000AD art... If anyone's interested, please take a look; I really wanted to do the artwork justice.  All done except a Gibson and a McCarthy page, but there's Ron Smith, Ewins, Dillon, Belardinelli, Fabry, Ezquerra, Wilson, Redondo, McMahon, Talbot plus more Gibson and McCarthy in there (along with a few ooooold sketches by the likes of Liam Sharp, Fabry and Yeowell).

Have you bought this? I know it has been doing the rounds on eBay for a while.
if I went 'round saying I was an Emperor just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away!

That story and the other McMahon artwork in the 81 and 82 Dredd annuals is some of my favourite ever.

Amazing to see a complete story as good as that all in one place.

Glad it stayed together. It would be nice to see in an exhibition or something.

The close ups on CAF are very interesting.

(Never mind - I see you fixed it!)

Iain, don't forget to use the Imgur 'message board' links with the square brackets if you want the image to show up directly (or just paste the link and use the 'image' icon when you create the post.

A cracker indeed.
And a good excuse to show off this from the Carl Critchlow sequel:

yep, those first two JD annuals are mega classic's and a real favourites of mine. To have some art from them is frankly mind blowing.

perhaps rufus needs to do another artwork exhibition?

aw man, an original page from the banned episodes - that's a real collector's item. And those colour Pinboing pages are incredible. Colour me jealous.

Tiny compared to the fullpages on show here, but this is probably my favourite of all my Carl Critchlow single panels - the swift kick to the nadgers to stop a problem dead perfectly summing up the humour of Dredd IMO
