I think Fraser was the first ink monkey to show us his rounded helmet.

I believe the forum's had this conversation before and, whilst I also thought it was Fraser, it turned out to be Ron Smith in 'A Case for Treatment'.

Everyone knows Megs and Specials don't count... 

It's A Dreddful Life wasn't Wagner* either. Well done, Everyone Else, for being more clever than us.


* Robbie Morrison and Jim Alexander, which made this as Scottish a Dredd as there'd been since the days of TB Grover and Cam Kennedy

Yea, I believe that I was the first to do that in 'Blood Cadets' back in Prog 1186.

Si.

Guess I should have refreshed the page before replying. I didn't know Ron Smith had done it before me. Good old Ron was always my fave Dredd artist.

Also "Ink Monkey" ?!  We're not Droids anymore? Is that a promotion?

Damn you Greg! 

May I wriggle a bit and suggest thst Simon was the first to apply the technique to a new story set in the 'past', rather than a reworking of an existing story (Cursed Earth) or indeed panel (Return of Rico)?

But yeah, being beaten to it by Ron Smith (and Colin!) is no disgrace at all.
