Nice one! I have the night off, thanks to the Queen. Honestly: I was owed that extra day for the jubilee.

Can't wait for this. Barely minutes from my house. Sounds like there's  going to be original Kennedy and MacNeil Dredd art in the same exhibition!!! *head explodes*

I would've loved to have been able to go to this - I spent many, many hours in that Tower building, but looking at pictures of Dredd is likley to be much more fun than a tutorial on the metaphysical poets!

This was great.

The cinema was nearly full and it was a good atmosphere, with lots of moments where everyone reacted together. Big laughs a few times, too. At the end, there was a big round of applause for the film. You don't hear that too often.

There was also the opening of the Dredd art exhibition at Dundee University, which has some beautiful pieces by MacNeil, Flint and others. The biggest was a print of Alex Ronald's Zarjaz cover - beautiful stuff. There was a talk there, with a Q&A from Al Ewing, Cam Kennedy and Colin Macneil, and it was a good laugh. My favourite revelation was that Al has named a judge after his mate and every time he moves house that judge shows up in a strip as a thank-you for help with lugging boxes. There was another Q&A after the film so it was good to hear reactions from comics creators.

I especially enjoyed meeting up with like-minded people, especially Alex, Montynero, Cam, Al, Colin and others. The last I saw of them, they were heading for the bar... I behaved.  :)

Yes, it was a brilliant night! I could listen to Cam and the others speak all night.

Great to see all the art together. You had Macneil pieces from the start of his career, right next to mid career paintings and the latest art. An inspiring variety of approaches. Very informative to see and listen to Cam describing his approach to drawing Dredd too.

The film was amazing. My mind is still blown at how clever it was. Anderson and Dredd were spot on, both individually and in regard to the tension between them. It was an incredible action film, irrespective of any 2000ad connection: lean and visceral, just how I like 'em.

I sat next to Trout throughout though. You can't have it all ;)

I read this on twitter last night 'Some fanboy fascist in the audience tonight barracking Colin Macneil for not liking the film enough'. What was that all about, as it sounds like it was an excellent night for everyone!

Colin wasn't keen on the film. He said it wasn't his idea of Dredd. That's his right, and not just because he's a very successful and much-loved Dredd artist.

Some guy, who was supposed to be asking a question, said Colin would never get a perfect Dredd and should settle for that one. He also was entitled to his opinion but he was expressing it in a slightly narky way.

It wasn't a big deal, really. Everyone else in the room was a bit uncomfortable but the discussion moved on quickly.

Very informative to see and listen to Cam describing his approach to drawing Dredd too.

The man's a legend.

Yeah, Joe, although tl;dr for me.  ;)

I'd guess the tiny bit of controversy would be in part one of the Q&A, but it would be wrong to focus on that. It was an overwhelmingly positive event.

So did anyone get to attend both this and the London fan screening?

Many revelations at the Q&A.
TB Grover was the local butcher. I'd never heard than one before.

That person clearly hasn't spoken to Mr MacNeil before, that's literally his reaction to everything that or "It's not how I would've done it" - it's why he's such a ruddy genius :D

Sounds like a glorious evening I wish we had such a concentration of legends in our vicinity to make such a thing possible!

Did anyone get a photo of Alex's cover print? I'd love to see one.

There was a pro photographer taking shots, I will have a look
through them to see if it is in any shots...
