You may have seen this image in the recent past...



The context is a bit different, of course, so you may just want to linger here for a while.

While there's no homophobia or abuse in the images I've selected, there is in the full story. 2 pages of 6 from 2000AD Prog 1817.

Judge Dredd is not a fan of the Suburbs. )

And that's the story.

Following on from my previous series of posts about Judge Beeny's backstory (America, America II & Cadet, Tour of Duty) some scans from the latest mega-epic "Day of Chaos". Roughly ten pages beneath the cut.

Day of Chaos )

The aftershocks of Day of Chaos are only just beginning to play out in the latest progs, so what the future has in store for Dredd and Beeny we still don't know.

I haven't had a chance to catch up on the double-feature "moments" theme weeks just yet - but I have FAITH that it was excellent, as usual.

Next theme.. first week of September? We'll see.

To make up for my absence, here is a perfect TEAM moment; Pat Mills and Simon Bisley working together. On anything. But in this case, on 2000AD's Slaine: The Horned God. Slaine is, approximately, What If Wolverine Were Gambit in Mythic Ireland? Often, you see his bum.

Jim Lee X-Men comics may have been how my boyfriend wooed me, but this three-volume series on permenant loan was how he kept me. Or how I knew he thought I was a keeper? Trust, man!

Below the cut: Politics, dragon-fighting. Kilts. But basically, first time around, we're here for the art.

Read more... )

More coming. Hopefully. I'm on borrowed scanner time.

This is the same Pat Mills as the Pat Mills who wants to bring back British Girls' Comics, btw.

*swoon*

Since her origins in the America trilogy (see my recent posts here and here) Judge Beeny has become a recurring character in the Dredd comics, and played a major role in the "Tour of Duty" epic. Roughly 16 pages of scans beneath the cut.

Warnings: References to a mass-shooting incident.

The Continuing Adventures of Judge Beeny )

Beeny next appears in Megazine 300 in the one-off story Judgement Call, which [personal profile] skjam already posted some scans from here. After that comes the "Day of Chaos" mega-epic, which I'll cover in my next post.

Part two of my history of Galen DeMarco, continued from here.

Where we left off last time, partway through "Beyond the Call of Duty", DeMarco was making a spirited attempt at going where no woman has gone before. Here's how that worked out for her.

Roughly 22 pages of scans under the cut.

Dredd's reaction, and what happened next )

Still one of my very favourite characters. ♥

In a similar vein to my previous series of posts about Dredd's clone-family, I thought I'd put together a bit of a history of one of my favourite supporting characters, Galen DeMarco. This is the first of two posts; the second should hopefully be up later in the week.

Roughly 19 pages of scans beneath the cut.

Meet Galen DeMarco )

In part two: Dredd's reaction, what happened to DeMarco after that, and an appearance by another awesome female character of the Dreddverse.

More Dredd! The third and final part of my series of posts on Dredd's family. (See links for parts one and two.) A tale of terrorist plots, cloning experiments gone wrong, Christmas gatherings and tea breaks.

About 20 pages of scans beneath the cut. (Warning for discussion of euthanasia, brief reference to a possible suicide attempt.)

Brothers of the Blood: Total War and Beyond )

No, not Dredd IN shorts, though that's quite the image... but shorts starring Judge Dredd

These are some Judge Dredd newspaper strips from the late 1980's which appeared in the Daily Star newspaper and which were collected... As they are all done-in-one, half a page long strips, I think I can post their entirety without problem.

So, courtesy of the 1988 Judge Dredd Annual )

Part two of my series of posts on Judge Dredd and his clones. (Part one is here.) These scans are all from the Brothers of the Blood TPB collection, a series of stories that follow the formation of Dredd's unlikely little family unit.

About 18 pages of scans beneath the cut.

Brothers of the Blood )

In part three: another clone, ups and downs in Dredd's relationship with his niece, and some gloriously awkward family Christmases.

Well, I caved in and bought that "Best of 2000AD" book I mentioned a while back and it has some choice samples of very very early 2000AD, first issue early, and many more from later periods, so I thought a little pot-pourri might be fun to share.

Sadly the 1/3 rule, laudable though it is, is a complete swine to factor in for a five page story, since I don't even get two whole pages, but I work with what I have.

Starting with the furore triggering 'INVASION!' )

Shako - Lassie he ain't! )

Ever wonder what the ABC in ABC Warriors stood for? )

And finally, sports )

Been collecting scans for this for a while, but the reappearance of a certain character in this week's Judge Dredd pushed me to get my act together and finally post.

Brothers of the Blood was the TPB collection that tipped me over the edge from a casual Dredd reader to a major fan. Since a lot of my love for it springs from the way it builds on decades of past continuity, I thought I'd collect some scans from earlier stories for context. Then I figured what the hell, collected the follow-up stories too, and the whole thing snowballed into an epic three part history of Dredd's relationship with his family of clones.

Around 17 pages of scans and a fair bit of waffle lie beneath the cut. (NB: these stories were mostly published in six page instalments, so two pages max from any individual prog.)

Brothers of the Blood: The Background )

In part two: two more clones join the family Dredd, and Vienna returns.

One of the recurring themes in the early years of 2000 AD was the future sports story. These carried over most of the tropes of regular sports comics, but with more violence and death, because that's what sports were going to be like in the future. I thought you might enjoy a storyline from "The Mean Arena."



It is the year 2025, and the up-and-coming sport is "street footbal". So called because instead of a nice open field, it's played by cordoning off a few city blocks along a street and using the buildings and terrain therein. (Though several teams have remade their hometown strips into more exotic obstacle courses.) Weapons are allowed, though the lethal ones are supposed to be used only on nonliving objects such as "droid" decoys.

The protagonist is Matt Tallon, who went off and did well in the American league, while his brother Paul became a star in Britain. Recently, Paul died during a game, which most write off to the unfortunate accidents that plague the sport. But Matt smells a rat in just how fast Paul went from all-star to a personal and professional tailspin. To investigate, he joins Paul's last team, the struggling Slater's Slayers. Sure enough, it turns out Paul was killed by a small group calling themselves the Hexa Gang, apparently just to see if they could.

At this point in the story, Matt's already disposed of Jaws Jensen (the player who inflicted the injuries that actually killed Paul) and Dr. Simon Jessup (the medic who declared Paul fit to play despite previous injuries.) In his last game, Matt learned that one of the Hexa Gang is a woman....

Are you ready for some football? )

Hope you enjoyed this football game!

Packed in with each issue of Judge Dredd Megazine (now available at Barnes & Noble!) is a smaller magazine reprinting strips from 2000 AD or the Meg itself. I thought you might get a kick out of last month's entry, "Death Planet."



Love that 50s B-movie poster look.

Four representative pages from different six-page chapters, originally published in 2000 AD #62-70, and bagged with Judge Dredd Megazine #321.

Everything trying to kill you. )

There's also a backup feature called "Angel" about a test pilot who becomes fused with his onboard computer and gains superpowers. The special guest star is the U.S. president, who takes a liking to the man.

Looking at [personal profile] whitesycamore 's posting of Halo Jones, reminded me that in the earlier post, someone noted we don't have any DR and Quinch on S_D.... and that just plain ain't right!

DR and Quinch are the creations of Alan Moore and Alan Davis back in 1983, and if that combo doesn't at least leave you wanting to see a LITTLE more, then you can check your geek cred at the door methinks. ;)

Our Devastating Duo had many adventures, but this is their introduction to the readership of planet Earth.

They first appeared, not in their own strip, but as one of Alan Moore's legendary contributions to 2000AD's "Time Twisters" series; short, done-in-one stories with the core concept of time travel somewhere within them. Moore's tended to be VERY clever and elegantly convoluted... but, as you will see, not ALL of them.

I should add that, as is nearly always the case in Moore and/or Davis work, cutting it to a 1/3 is a positively painful work. This is approximately 2 pages out of 6, and I hope this might encourage you to seek out the collected works, because I've had to hack great swathes of fun out of it.

So, without further ado.

D.R. and Quinch have fun on Earth )
