oh, that's great to know thanks - I try and cover a wide range of comics so hopefully there's never too long to wait for a post on a subject you like - and a 'history' of 1300+ posts means there's always plenty to catch-up on

Collins gave good Dredd. There's a lightness to everything there that really suits the brief.

This got me thinking about the 1991 (1990?) Comic Relief Comic, which, from memory, had a bunch of tooth related stuff. Anyone remember any of the contents (or still have a copy)?

Not that much from what I remember - the overall story had a contemporary Blackadder, the 2000 AD stuff had Jim Baikie drawing Dredd on a Lawmaster coming in to raise money, and a question about who had the biggest chin, Desperate Dan, Dredd, or Dan Dare, and the winner being Brucie...

I think I might have donated my copy to Eamonn, not sure.

A couple of interesting bits in it though.

Viz does a Roger Mellie page, where it talks about Savile, and FOR THE KIDS is in bold...

I also seem to recall reading  DC had some restrictions on what could be drawn, basically they supplied poses ?

There was a also a spitting image comic book around the same time, which had Brett Ewins doing a Judge Deaf strip + some other bits, and some Steve Dillon strips.

Oh I was oblivious (or I imagine I'd long since forgotten about as it sounds like the kind of thing I would have definately known about at the time) to the Spitting Image comic. Bear Alley as a few pages, including the Judge Deaf one up.

Thanks for that Steve.

I snagged a copy off eBay a while back.

Desperate Dan rubbing shoulders with Dredd, Captain Britain, Lenny Henry and Bruce Forsyth no less!
A Dan Dare/Doctor Who mashup and a bunch of Marvel and DC characters giving Dredd a hard time!
I'll try uploading photos, if I can figure it out!  :)
