Help - stars n stripes Dredd tee
« on: 27 June, 2013, 10:08:30 AM »
Howdy folks!  I have to wear some stars and stripes clothing for a works event on 4th July.  :rolleyes:

I was hoping I could at last find a Dredd t-shirt with the flag, but so far my search has been unfruitful.  Can anyone help?

Ta!

I'm pretty sure this is an official shirt. This isn't the original site that I saw it on (can't for the life of me remember where) but it is lovely and hopefully matches your requirements.

That is perfect, thanks very much! I've ordered it, and crossing my fingers it gets here before the 4th!

Kudos to the guys at Geekys, it arrived fast.  It looks great!

Two things I noticed about the design - Bollands trademark confusion re the colour of the knee and elbow pads, plus the two Judges are ENORMOUS compared to the President!  What's that all about?!?

I think it took quite a few years for the colours to settle down -- not surprising considering most artwork was black-and-white for the first 10 years of publication.

Here's an example of yellow elbow & knee pads from Mike McMahon:


I'm sure I remember this topic being raised in the Nerve Centre at some point.

I'm glad everyone settled on green!
