Loving his take on the Howler  :)

Loving his take on the Howler

Especially because he's acknowledged the utterly unique nature of McMahon's art and that character by replicating Mick's art style, rather than adapting Howler to his own idiom, as he has the other members of Dredd's rogues gallery - some things just don't translate in that way. Who's the blonde lady in the red dress?

I wondered if it might be Inga in the red dress.

The only one I don't recognise is the top right green guy.

Yeah, really like this.

I wonder if the lady in red is Halo Jones?

Is the chap over Dredd's left shoulder a couch potato? Also not clear on the reptile guy in the top left. Think it is PJ's squeeze Inga in the red dress although at first I thought it might be Isla Dancer. Good to see Ratfink too!

All the other characters are Dreddworld. Inga was my only guess too, but (given her chameleon nature) she's not a very well defined character. You would have thought Bolland might pair her with Maybe to remove ambiguity, or maybe choose one of her more distinctive (pervy) looks.

The creature over Dredd's left shoulder is the Black Widow( iirc it was a Nosferatu)illustrated by the late great John Hicklenton :-)

I last saw him drinking in the Quite Nice bar with Mrs Gunderson, but I missed most of the noughties - he might have had a grim and gritty reboot as a serial killing virus for all I know.

Presumably its a Klegg (Grampus even?)
