General / Hivemind query - anyone recognise this story?
« on: 26 June, 2022, 04:42:38 AM »
This was posted on Reddit.  I thought someone here might be able to help:

“I started reading 2000ad and Judge Dredd as a kid in around 1990, when a friend at school brought along a couple of progs and an annual from '86 (I think). Immediately fell in love with it. In one of the progs there was a short story where Dredd went into a block where a bunch of mutants had taken over a gymnasium. After taking care of most of them, Dredd comes face to face with the biggest of the mutants, who seems to be impervious to the shots from his lawmaker. So of course, he proceeds to drive to the end of the swimming pool, revs up his lawmaster, and ramps over the diving board, igniting the booster rockets (yes), and impales the mutant with the bike, diving of the bike at the last minute into the pool. The art was epic, and the story was brutal and to the point, classic Dredd. Can anyone please help me find the story / prog? Cheers!“

He’s since said his timing is probably wrong but that he strongly remembers Dredd using his bike to spear the big EOLM baddy.

I thought even if it’s actually from some non Dredd thing someone might know.
