New Dredd cover


The Cursed Earth is probably the most powerful memory I have of first reading 2000AD and Judge Dredd, so you can imagine how pleased I was when asked to do a cover for the galaxy's greatest! The images above are sections of the background, all painted in photoshop...have I mentioned how much I love photoshop?! Yes? Well I'll say no more other than life would be impossible without it!

I still can't talk too much about Batman at this stage, things are going great with my designs for characters and other secret things (for now) being gladly received by my secret (for now) writer, who I must say is a delight to work with. It's getting almost impossible now for me not to blurt it out there, shout it from the highest Gotham tower, but I know how much it means to DC to keep certain things close to their chests until deemed appropriate for the world to know so I'll shut up...for now!

So like when will you be able to shout from the roof tops?

Don't suppose you have any other 2000ad interiors anywhere on the horizon or is the Batman thing taking all you're time for the foreseeable?

So are you coming to Brum in October? How's Batman coming? I had lunch with Mark Chiarello in SDCC…

Kevin...what am I like?!

Colin...I still don't know when I'll be able to spill the beans but it'll happen here first. And I don't have any scripts for ether 2000AD or the Meg for now as all my time is spent on Batman and will be for the next six months at least...but Ian Edginton and I have big plans for Exo Judge Lamia that we hope to enthrall Tharg with.

Joel...No Brum for me this year I'm sorry to say. Batman is coming on wonderfully cheers...more on that soon...
