Dredd the Future

Classic Bolland artwork for Madness side project The Fink Brothers -reminds me of last summer as I attempted to paint old stoney face myself it wasn't too bad a bit like Brians Joe and Kirk Douglas  mixed in with my style of mouse painting but  of course my computer died-this is the streak of bad luck I've been having these last few years  so it's lost forever I daren't even try anymore although I am colouring an Anderson story that's going ok so far I'll probably post that episode in a few days -would like to paint Dredd and One Eyed Jack together had an idea for a story where the two great lawmen meet (maybe I should leave that to John Wagner -but would make a nice bit of fan fiction -but the idea I have is kind of cool so might give it a whirl)
The Valiant strips written by Wagner- I first read Jack in Battle Action -he wasn't a cop then though more of a secret agent type It may of been Gerry Day who wrote those stories -but this books great each episode would make a decent Dirty Harry movie but I reckon Jacks even Dirtier than Harry so it's a good purchase stories tended to be 3 to 4 pages but somehow action packed from start to finish -no idea how John Cooper got New York so right -this is a era before video recorders and computers so he must of had lots of photo reference -draws NYC better than most Superhero artists -totally Mean Streets ... more news about the upcoming Dredd //Mega City One TV show -sounds like they're gonna get it  dead on -I hope they keep the future slang like "Drokk" , "Spugg£ and "Stomm" no swearing that would ruin it- language changes so would make sense but would it make sense to the nonscrots ?theres too many of them out there....but this show could change all that .. interview with the shows producers from the excellent Mr H

I doubt they'll muck it up -genuine fans so I'm most hopeful--bit more Star Wars stuff I just noticed on Youtube can't be arsed with facebook at moment does my nut in so this is first I've seen this. ooh !
