I finally got the chance to sit down and read this. What can I say? You really have played a blinder, oh Splendid Mr. Shark.

Al Ewing's intro is perfect. That man really is a great writer. In a handfull of paragraphs he pays not only pays tribute to Mr. Smith, he gives a nod to us fans. It's just really nice. Sets the tone perfectly.

After that it's page after page of gorgeous art and heartfelt-without-being-schmaltzy messages, all perfectly framed by a Smith-style Dredd visor.

Thanks Shark
You may quote me on that.

May the FSM bless you

I had no idea what this meant - but after asking around I was pointed in the right direction to be touched by His Noodly Appendage. Glory be! I'm saved!

Just got around to reading the finished article. Immense. Lovely work from all involved and especially Mr Shark. So glad Mr Smith seemed to like it, too!  :D

Greetings all.

Thank you, Ron is very special. Superb! I've just written a post about 'Thank you... Ron' over on my blog. I haven't singled out anyone's contribution as every page is a prize winner. A fantastic effort by all :)

I hope you enjoy!

Thank you... Ron blog post: http://daveyf.co.uk/blog/?p=541

Not a problem. It was a wonderful project and I'm sure that it meant the same to everyone involved as it did to me. Ron's a legend :)

So when are we doing 'Thank you Mark Millar', Sharkie?  :)

Curious to know if anyone has taken up Ron’s very kind offer and if so what did he say.

I got the lovely email from Ron's daughter with his phone number included and an offer to call him. I'm just too nervous and scared of making a fool of myself. Anyone else called?

Yeah, I received one, too. Thought it was a very touching thing for them to do, to send a reply out like that.
