I think the prices here are unrealistic but I suspect that these actually aren't aimed 2000ad readers, rather they are pitched at 40 something nostagists. Hence the prices.

But I think Commando Forces does ask a far question how difficult can it be to produce merchanidise at a reasonable price I think the same applies to those inordinately expensive T-shirts they were flogging a couple of months ago.

You can get McMahon pages for less than that - ok, not classic Dredd - but still original McMahon.

What's the difference?

"We" know how much a piece of original 2000ad art is likely to cost.

There ought to be some kind of regular publication which prints 2000AD art in a sequential format so we can all enjoy the pictures at a lower price.

That is fcuking appalling. It looks like the sort wet dream fan pic a middled aged women who smells of cats would produce...

Ack, Mr Fantastic's face reminds me of the Fantastic Foursome I did for Civil Wardrobe.

Oh, the shame.....

You don't even need to print it out on Canvas, you can get lovely A1/2 prints quite cheaply online.

I have Dredd launching the TADS against East Meg, Fist of Dredd and Dredd beating the crap out of Johnny Alpha on my bedroom wall.

Really though, if you're willing to pay that much get some original artwork instead. There was some nice Gibson colour Dredd pages on Ebay I saw the other day.
If you want prints do it yourself.

Looks like the Invisible Woman is fisting the Thing in that pic!

And yeah - good Gibson pages, direct from Gibson himself, keep poping up on ebay all the time for about £40 each.

I bought one myself recently and will doagain soon.

Also, Gibson gets the financial gain from these sales... I wonder how much Bolland or McMahon receive from these copies of their artwork.
