1) JUDGE DREDD MEGAZINE 399: Dredd taking on unseen MC1 Perps – I’m a sucker for painted art, and Brown’s cover is awesome! I like that Dredd is defending some “innocent” citizens (no one is innocent...) and I like the dirty city details.

2) JUDGE DREDD MEGAZINE 396: Jack vs Dredd – A Nice creepy cover, the painted Higgin’s art looks great.

3) JUDGE DREDD MEGAZINE 402: Lawson facing the innumerable horde - I love all the detail in the background.

1st - 395 - McCarthy - nuff said
2nd - 397 - ballsy
3rd - 402 - great ‘you want to see action? Read THIS’ cover.

I’m going all first name for this, Grazia style...

1st: Tiernon on 398 - excellent work!
2nd: Cliff on 397. I say!
3rd: Jake on 392. Nice re-imagining there.

Thanks for running this Pete! Gold star, that man!

1st: 392 - fantastic, dynamic, 'movie' shot.
2nd: 402 - encapsulates Lawless in one image.
3rd: 397 - if you didn't know who Devlin was, you do now.

1. (3pts) 393 Winslade



2. (2pts) 399 Brown



3. (1pt) 401 Percival



Of the two superb Winslades, I prefer the rampaging Jaru on 393 - youjust can't beat big purple ape wild-west SF wraparound action. Adam Brown's full-figure Dredd cover for 399 is so fully realised that it injects life into an over-familiar generic Dredd-under-fire subject. I'm no fan of the general style of comic art that Percival excels at, preferring lines and clarity over murkily swirling paints, but even I can't deny how brilliantly unsettling this re-design of 401 is. As with the Brown, this is a captivating take on an old staple.

As an irregular reader, I bought way more Megazines than usual this year, and the hook of excellent covers had a lot to do with that.

Quite a lot of dark covers this year but plenty of solid images that draw the fans. Maybe too few iconic images to draw the masses at the train stations and the like?

Three Points : 399 - Corking bit of action there
Two Points : 400 - Fitting anniversary cover with a nice contemplative Dredd
One Point : 395 - Possibly the year's most eye catching cover. Wasn't mad about the story but this cover encourages me to have another look.
