I don't think they should ever have stopped using that Dredd logo.

This ^^^ many times over.  Every other logo, no matter how sharp or stylish, has been inferior. It's not like the 2000AD logo itself where you can argue the pros and cons of versions in a my-favourite-Doctor way - there is only one choice of Dredd logo.

Oh. I hadn't been in Futureshock for 20+ years when I popped in about 2 weeks ago. Sad news.

Completely.
I remember thinking when the Megazine [1.0]1 appeared, why the oh-so-perfect classic Dredd logo wasn't used...? It felt like a conscious decision not to use it and bizarre.

So good they had to use it in 2 films

Seeing that logo onscreen was the highlight of both films for me. It does seem like it would be a lovely gesture to restore that wonderful bit of design to the prog as a mark of respect - even if it was only for one episode.

Yes, I'll add my voice to the call for restoring the original Dredd logo - even if, as others have said, its only for a one off mark of respect.

I'm sad to hear about Neil Craig. I bought my comics there for years and he was always a character.

I've only just heard the news about Jan Shepheard.  RIP Mrs Shepheard, thanks for all your talent and hard work.

I would also love to see the original Dredd logo restored too. I cheer whenever it gets used on some new item.

It's easily the best logo Dredd has ever had and the only one that's really stuck with me as being the definitive one. Like others have said, seeing it in the film got me massively excited.

Really sad news.

Yep, it's grizzled and craggy but powerful and authoritative, and thus is even more appropriate than ever to today's aged-but-tough-as-old-boots* old-timer Dredd.

Jeez - you can't post those initials on this thread without giving half the folk here a panic attack. I'm sorry to hear about blues dude, but massively relieved that Dark Justice won't have to be published posthumously.

James Garner at 86.

Rockford Files, Maverick, Disney's Atlantis.

He was great.

An old-school, no-bullshit, boys-own action/adventure comic reminiscent of the 2000ads and Eagles and Warlords and Battles and other glorious black-and-white comics that were so, so cool in the 70's and 80's - Buy the hardback Christmas Annual!

The bands name was inspired by Paul McCartney's use of the pseudonym Paul Ramon during his early days.
