Old age is the Lord’s way of telling us to step aside for something new. Death’s in case we didn’t take the hint.

The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.

Looking forward to this - always nice to have more Al Ewing Dredd and Casper Wijngaard is a great artist - I wish we'd got more Angelic!

Here is the cover by Caspar Wijngaard:

So from the contributors list can we conclude that thee other strips are Hershey Disease and Dreadnoughts? While I have opposite feelings about those two, they are solid super-stylish choices for promoting the Dreddverse.

Yes—that’s confirmed in the press release linked to earlier in the thread.

My view is that if I actually have to read the article before I offer up my opinions on it, it shouldn't be on the internet.

Dredd looks like he's sitting on one of those kids rides you see outside supermarkets.  I hope he's got another two credits so he can have another turn.

Heh. I thought the same. Nice art, but teeny tiny Lawmaster.

Chortle!

In all fairness, Caspar Wijngaard is not the first to make this sort of error with the Lawmaster.

To be fair, it may be small for the (modern) lawmaster but the scale's not far off early depictions or a real motorcycle.
