...& suddenly Stevie is no longer  wracked by guilt re: his retelling of that particular Suoercover Saga in his Grade 5 Composition book.

Cheers Joe!

Not really a swipe, but a couple of the internal balcony scenes in Dredd (2012) remind me of this panel from Harry on the High Rock.

No matter how many times I see this I can't convince myself that the connection is much more than 'barbarian v. dinosaur'. There's so much more going on in Angie's splash, and it fits so well with her heavily-worked Druillet thing (see also: Manco), and Jim's whole style is almost the opposite of that. I've no doubt that his work was a massive influence on the whole idea of Sláine, I'm just not convinced this image itself is a direct swipe/inspiration.

While I imagine Jim Fitzpatrick is an influence on Sláine, personally I believe it's not a huge leap to suggest that Sláine has influenced him too. Is my memory failing me or did one of the original Horned God GNs have one of his quotes on the back cover?

Not suggesting that he's ripping Angie off or anything - he's far too established an artist to need to imitate anyone - but given that he's aware of Sláine (iirc), he may well have taken some inspiration.
