Block Names
« on: 30 November, 2019, 03:07:06 pm »
Is there a list anywhere of mega city block names from the stories of Judge Dredd?

I met a guy in the pub and we got talking about comics and he told me he met a Dredd artist in Belfast a few years back and the artist said he might put his name in the background of a panel, I am just curious if it ever happened.

If it ended up as a bit of graffiti it might never be found, but if it was actually a block name there might be a chance of identifying it, if it exists at all.

thanks
james

The only one I can remember is John Caliber's City of Dredd which listed pretty much every location, but I think that stopped around 2013ish.

It could also be covered by a speech balloon.

A totally incomplete category on a wiki may be useful (some day, probably not today).
Category: Mega-City One blocks

Well, I'm just gonna say: if this was me, I've totally forgotten about it, sorry unnamed block guy!

the guy's name is "Noel Tate", do not appear to be on the wiki list anyway.

thanks P.J., I thought the only 3 names at him I knew might be from Northern Ireland, yours, Will Simpson & John McCrey, but he said there was a lot of drink involved and it was a while ago.

thanks for all your help.
