If you didn't like Ron Smith's work, fair enough. But I'm struggling to see why it makes a difference that he have himself time limits to do it.
I work as a commercial artist myself - when you're working to a brief with a deadline, you have to get the job done. Ron Smith was a comic illustrator, not some independently rich Bohemian lounging about till the muse struck. He had bills to pay, just like the rest of us.

Ron Smith was doing Chronos Carnival when I first started reading the prog. It took a long time before I could disassociate him from that in my mind. I appreciate him more now, but he wouldn't be particularly near the top of my list of favourite Dredd artists.

Whereas i grew up with his Dredd. I miss him. Nobody did Mega-Citizens like him, and his pimply juves were as much an essential part of the city as McMahon's cactus-shaped blocks.

i kind of miss his painted work.

Any examples you can post? I'm trying to think if I've seen this, or merely color painted over his penciled-and-inked pages. I'm sure it does exist, I'm just trying to remember where I've seen it.

Well, I was referring to the painted ink drawings.  You can't have missed them.

Well, that's the thing.  It looks egalitarian at first glance but I can't see how it couldn't end in out-of-control, dog-eat-dog capitalism, with the poor and disenfranchised getting crushed as is normal*.  Catalonians established a fairly functional, if short-lived, anarcho-socialist society, but that's a different thing entirely.

*I'm not saying the normal system of crushing them is good either.

I was very, very young, about 5 or 6, and my older brother bought it.  I read his and bought Nutty comics instead.  Eventually he gave up when I was about 13 and he was 14, and about a year later I started collecting them myself (also slowly plugging the back-issue gaps as I went).

A small confession here:  I remember years and years ago, when I was a wee lad, around the time I started noticing that 2000ad stories had different art styles (I started reading wayyy too young to understand the prog properly).  I saw Carlos on Dredd - he drew him much skinnier back then - and thought something like, 'That looks a bit odd.  Johnny Alpha's his character, not Dredd.'

Of course I know better now.  Also I prefer Carlos's modern, older, bulkier Dredd (and I also like the fact that John Wagner has added Dredd's weight-gain to continuity, though I can't quite remember which story it was).

On a side-note, I'd add Jock, despite his sadly short tenure, to the top whatever Dredd artists.

I really like Harvey and hope nothing bad happens to him.  He's a great judge and a nice guy.

And hats off to Wagner for making the story so different from the original Mechanismo one.

I'm not sure if you meant to post a link to the original video or just a screen grab. I can see a billboard in the background there with a face and what looks like the word "soap" on it, but I can't make out the actual face or read the billboard.

Is it possible that this isn't the right frame, and there was one where the billboard could actually be read that you meant to grab?

It says "Joe Soap" and has the Dave Gibbons Chronocops image that Mr Soap used to use as his avatar.

What Jim said.

I didn't grab the screen myself; I just typed 'Joe Soap Dredd movie' into Google images.  A few of our number were featured in that film, IIRC - 'Goaty' was featured twice as a graffiti tag.

Also, thanks for explaining the connection, Dash.

Ye never know, Trumps endorsement could scupper May

Not going to happen, sadly.  There just isn't the opposition.

Mr. Soap, can I just say how much I enjoy seeing your well-chosen avatar?

You're not the only one.
