Say this about Pete Wells: he's found his level and he's damned well sticking to it. Magnificent as ever Pete, a late night treat to usher in my favourite event of the year.

And we're off!

Lovely homage, although goes a bit too northern at the end...

I loathe Christmas decoration in November (makes me disproportionately angry) but the advent calendar is when I start feeling Chritmassy.

Pete sets the tone beautifully as always (is his singing voice getting better?), and PJ - chintastic!

Thanks for the Top Tens Eamonn, glad to hear a few I voted for in there. Another tribute to Carlos as well with the high placing of his work.

It's not often you get to say "better than the original" when the original is a Gibson, but PJ's Eyeless Dredd affords just such an opportunity.

Cor, I’ll take that! (I don’t deserve it, but I’ll take it)

If anyone wants to suggest another dredd head for dreddcember in this thread I’ll see if I can get round to it.
