Dear oh dear,

Dear oh dear oh dear.....

BELARDINELLI!

Harlem Heroes, Blackhawk, Dan Dare, Mean Team, future shocks galore, Flesh.... ACE TRUCKING.

Would we have Flints bonzoid alien fest of Shakara without Belardinelli?

where is this 'Dirty Frank is going back to uniform' tosh coming from? He's getting his p45 not re-enlisted to the corps.

DIRTY FRANK FEELS A LONG WALK COMING ON. DIRTY FRANK SHOULD JUST TAKE THE ZOOM INSTEAD.

It has all the elements, its a Cursed Earth Megazine story that surely ticks all the boxes then why is it so bloody awful?

For a start, Tony Lee doesn't really seem to have any sort of handle on the Dreddworld (sorry Tony) and the art doesn't help in this respect. A good case in point is the 'I look like a hooker' line. They wouldn't say 'I look like a hooker', they'd say 'I look like a slabwalker.' The Judge is far too young to be on her Long Walk, I suspect because the artist preffered to draw another 'sexy chick' character rather than stick to the established rules of the 'verse, and again she speaks nothing like a Judge.

This isn't pedantry for pedantry's sake - the cast, with all their jokey current-day slang, fail at every turn to seem part of the Dreddverse in any way; they just come across as random joes in a random desert. Yes, it has dinos and giant spiders but it could be past, present, future, Cursed Earth, Nu-Earth, Ararrat, Mars, and it wouldn't really make any difference.

And while it is fun, there are some really dark elements mixed in (no bad thing in themselves) like the constant rape attempts, which jar horribly with the comedy, cartoon violence.

That pretty much on the mark - the hooker line was awful, the rape references alongside 'toony' style art is shockingly glib and the whole thing started as poor and went downhill fast. YES dinosaurs are great.. but that dosn't excuse this tripe.

I also think none of the characters have any depth or personality or even distinguishing characteristics... they look alike, speak alike, their lines are interchangable... much like a certain concentration camp story.

It's listed on Amazon for a summer release.
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Judge-Dredd-Nec ... 103&sr=8-2
See.
Mm, but as I've said on this board a couple of times now, that release has been cancelled. Instead, Necropolis will be in the last of 2009's Dredd CF books, and Dead Man will be issued the same month.

the LAST?

say it ain't so bub.

like BSG they should chalk it up at the start of every script.

Or maybe at the end after dredd has shot another half-dozen.

Defoe is classic 2000A - great individualistic art style, mass violence, silly supporting characters, bonkers dialogue, bounding along at 1000mph. If it said 'Script: Robbie Morrison' you'd have it pinned as Dante1799 (minus the sex granted).

Appreciation of any one strip must come from your like / dislike of both the writer and the artist - block 'hating' of an author who NOBODY can deny has written some fantastic work is simply 'odd'. I can think of Mills things I've not been hugely taken with recently and stuff I've thought was THRILLPOWER personified... but the same with Morrison, Abnett, Ewing, Grant and yes.. even Wagner (been while mind). I've not liked the work of Lee so far but am more than willing to give his forthcoming strips a go.

Are you sure its Spainsh? - Basta definately means 'enough' in Italian. Repeating it 3 times is their version of 'calm down'.

Everybody's waiting for Dante to die but he's clearly got ages to run
1) beat the tzar
2) beat the white army
3) rule the world for a bit then get stabbed by his bastard off-spring (who doubtless will be a very fit and sexy chick)

Thats a good 10 years worth right there.

STOMM was first used by judge diablo in 'ROBOTS' (prog 9).
Diablo was the second named judge other than Dredd and also the second named judge to die. Thankfully the third named Judge Jack became the first to survive a prog in which he appears.

DROKK was first used by judge dredd in ROBOT WARS part 7 (prog 16) - it was used as 'DROKK IT' rather than 'DROKK'
