JUDGE DREDD TEASERS !!!




Apologies for not posting sooner guys. Basically been busy getting the first episode of this Judge Dredd for the Megazine done! Here's a few non-spoilery panels.

When you finally see the full pages, you'll see a significant difference from my usual Defoe pages. Most noticable, I'm using more imaginative layouts and having elements break out of the panels.
Plus I'm cutting back on the usual crosshatching to give the colourist space to do his/her thing...have to say, I'm both nervous and excited at the same time to see how this baby turns out.

No idea when this is due out yet. I've still to do the second episode as well as a cover. As for future posts, I've been told I'll be able to post the cover I did for "The End is Nigh" magazine within the week, so we can have a good natter about that soon over a cup of tea and a custard cream.

By the way, I'd like to say a big thanks and congratulations to Ed Kaye of Hypergeek, who got his first credit in 2000AD Prog 1656 last week, with an interview with both Pat Mills and myself about Defoe!

Catch you soon.

Looks great man. I really like how you've a lot more white space. It's a bit more 'graphic' Can't wait to see this.

See you at the London Expo by the way

Looking good Leigh, very excited about this. It's going to be interesting to see someone else take a bash at colouring your stuff too.

DEFINATELY having fun Jon. Kind of feels like I'm mixing the wild layouts of my Bionicle work with Defoe, and it's a balance i like.
