Watching this one with interest. Cam is barely in the lead.  Curious to hear how everyone decides their vote!

Firstly Cam is my favourite artist. Ron Smith is a many sense the artists whom define MC-1 whereas Cam is the artist whom  defined Rogue. I just felt that Cam is much more versatile than Ron. Cam can do Dredd with the same scope as what Ron can. Ron's art on Rogue was good but never came to the same level as Cam's work on Rogue.

I'd argue that in some ways Ron defined the Cits better (especially in terms of the oddities) but Cam breathed life into the Big Meg as a city better than anyone.  The whole 'city as a character' thing was typified by Cam's work and a lot of his best strips involve Dredd taking a back seat to the surrounding city in all its scruffy, seedy glory.

@ming I see that Ron was the first artist that really expanded the whole MC-1 from the cityscape to the citizens. the other artists just start riding on his wave. Cam just added another layer especially with his work on Midnight Surfer. Cam did however did the best fatties of them all.

I hear all the arguments saying Kennedy is the correct choice, but my heart's still pulling me over to Ron Smith. And it's very much for the lunatic fringe element that he bequeathed to Mega City 1.
(But yeah, for work outside of the world of Dredd, it'd be Kennedy by a country mile)
