Not wanting to do more than have a bit of fun.

Anyone else got a favourite misinterpretation of a character?

What's wrong with that second Nemesis cover (besides being a bit spoilerific)?

Simon Bisley is one of the most successful and talented artists of all time, his combination of manic energy and technical sophistication earning him a mainstream audience beyond the world of comics fandom.

I quite like the Strontium Dog and the second Nemesis one.

Yep, that Nemesis No. 17 one is the actual business, if you can get past Tickle-Me-Thoth.  Strontium Dog one has a certain heft to it too.

The Beano had a parody Dredd character, I forgot what it was called but it was a bird of some sort in the judge costume and was called "Judge Egg" or something like that. This was back in the 90s.
