I originally thought it was Devlin Waugh - vampire teeth, 'tache - but on the black and white copy it looks like it calls him a vampire accountant, which would make it Yorga from  Brigand Doom (!) Surely not?

Heh! What about one if the half-dead Harrys, Kipling or Absalom?

What a weird and fantastic cover.  It's like a road accident you can't stop gawking at.  Mean Machine looks fantastic - very wolfish - but Waldo "D.R." Dobbs looks like some kind of troll.  Dredd looks like he's lost a tooth and Skizz (in front of Alpha) looks like he's been crossed with one of those potato men pet things from Dredd.

I've got to agree that Zenith looks particularly feminine.  Nick Stone looks like a drunken leprechaun.

I'm still puzzling out...

Is that Chopper behind Venus Bluegenes and Judge Mortis?

Who's that behind Halo Jones?  Is it Nick Savage?

What's the black wombat thing behind the Gronk?

Yes. Yes. And that's Henry Moon — he's a panther, not a wombat. Honest.

Still reckon Hammerstein takes the prize.

I love the weirdness of this covet, which comes partly from such cranky types being forced to smile. And Nick Stone looks like Mick Jagger, a connection I never made before.

I know it's been said, but...

N E M E S I S !

So DTM cover means subscribers get something else on the cover, right? Not sure how I feel about that...

Yeah it is kinda hard to decide whose smile is most disturbing. Maybe Dredd... nah surely Kano... but you know what I think its the smile on Rogue's face that's freaking me out most... well either that or its gaining extra freaky by its close proximately to Hammersteins weirdo grin.

What's going on with Tharg's left hand there? Also Bolland sequential (ie not cover or poster) work! First in a long while.

I'm assuming the fingers are on a separate layer (or even a different file) to enable some graphic cleverness, like him grabbing onto one of the 0s in the 2000 logo.

I assume he's breaking the fabric of reality and story?

But again with the weird smiley Kano!

I love that one! Grumpy Dredd pilot! Shirley Robertson not Bolland?
