Not sure if this counts here or if it should be in its own thread titled "more stuff for CF to buy":

Still... Judge Kitty, great idea.

That's actually great! I might have to get one of these! Daughter loves Hello Kitty and is aware of Dredd...nice little cross-over here.

Dredd/Boba Fett:

www.redbubble.com/people/robotrobotrobot/t-shirts/6862636-1-judge-fett

I suspect that, like the Hello Kitty one, this kind of mash-up of iconic images gets through some kind of fair use loop hole by being "transformative" or even a "parody" (which I see is one of the tags on the side of the page).

File under: More goodies for the Cellar of Dredd.
if I went 'round saying I was an Emperor just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away!

This one is some sort of Judge Dredd knock-off:

And so is this one, but at least it seems to go to great lengths to cover up the fact:

    • Futureshock'd: At least the pictures are nice.
If I'd known it was harmless I would have killed it myself.

Weird one this: i was in a shop in town today, and the assistant noticed my dredd lapel badge, and asked if it was from a film or a game or something. I told her it was a comic, and she said, "oh, because i used to get paid by judge dredd productions when i worked for a games company in Ireland." She went on to explain that, while it wasnt the name of the company, it "was the name on our payslips".
How bizarre.

A 'Judge Dredd Company' were bought by 'Doom Troopers Corporation' in 2007. I wonder if it is the same people?
Did you know Christ was a werewolf?

It seems as though they have just cut up the material from the quilt covers to make loads of those!

I wasn't sure where to put this, but I think this must be right. I was reading my monthly comic alotment and got into some of my Image Comics. On the back of a lot of them is an advertisment for Robert Kirkman's new All-Ages book Super Dinosaur. While I was admiringn the artwork of Jason Howard, my eyes were drawn to the chest logo Super Dinosaur sports...





Look familiar? Like the certain badage a certain mutant bounty hunter sports? I'm sure its unintentional, but I thought it was a little odd how similar it looks.

Hmm, fair enough. But that badge they used to compare... I was more reacting to this badge from the spine of the Agency Files...



Which, except from the little tab on the bottom of the Strontium Dog 'S', is bang on identical.

This belongs to Scooby Doo.

I think it is just a coincidence.
