Kill the City, not Dredd. Slowly strip everything away until only Dredd is left; the Last Judge, all alone in the lifeless ruins where justice, finally, prevails.


Wasn't that the premise of the dreadful City of Grass Dredd in the American issues?

The barefoot Dredd picture was a homage to the cover of the Beatles album Abbey Road, in which Lennon was barefoot for reasons known only to him.

Oh, I know that - the bit I don't understand is why being shown barefoot is supposed to signify that Paul is dead.

I forgot it was Paul. I had assumed the significance had come from Lennon being the first to die. No idea what it means then!

Nope, the 'Paul is dead' meme started in the same year that Abbey Road (the album) was released.

I just love the madness of how many 'clues' there are to Paul's death.

I have a book on it ("The Walrus was Paul", I think) and my favourite has to be that if you hold a mirror horizontally across the drum kit on the cover Sgt Pepper, the half you see and the reflection really look like it says "HE DEAD" with a diamond/arrow shape in between the two words pointing up to Paul.

The sentence is ... death?

After struggling with that one I turned to the internet - you misquoted the conspiracy theorists - they've convinced that the 'chilling' message is "he die"

Mea culpa, I was going from memory.

I dug out the book to have a look.  The first bit is meant to be 11/9 (1 ONE IX), the date he 'died':

That's a fair old stretch of pareidolia right there.  Lucky the internet wasn't around back then; his 'double' would probably be getting Twitter death threats.

I can guess how someone got to flaffing about with a mirror and a record sleeve, still I'm convinced now.
