I've read the article and I still have no idea what it means so I'm not going to comment on this news.

JUDGE DREDD: FUNKO UNIVERSE 

John Layman (W), Francesco Gaston (A), Rob Schwartz (C), Photo (VC), Francesco Gaston (VC). Check out the funkiest Dredd of all-time as Funko takes over Mega-City One! Perps like Judge Death and the Angel Gang may strike fear in the hearts of citizens, but Judge Dredd is here to stop them! And he may be cute but never forget -- HE IS THE LAW!

So this is why Layman can't deliver on last issue of Judge Dredd and AvP crossover?

I take your point, but I wouldn't compare Funko to Lego (or Dredd to Batman).
A 'Steve Green Lego Movie' would probably make a few million profit.

It'd be surprising if this wasn't the worst selling Dredd comic of all time.

I can see IDW's reasoning though.

Funko is popular, I expect you get people who collect Funko figures because it's Funko, rather than being a fan of the IP.

So that might bleed over into the comics side of things.

It's a one-shot so it's not like they're committing to an ongoing series.

Hey, we had Dredd having a 2000AD party on the moon, and replacing Judy Garland in the Wizard of Oz story.

I'm guessing the 'red lines' on IP is a little more flexible on the comics front compared to licensing movies, TVs or games.

I quite like Layman's writing, so I'm sure I'll pick it up.

It's just 'chibi-Dredd' with Funko branding. Ultimately harmless if not your bag.

That looks stupid.

I'll take the opposite tack, and expect it to be one of the better selling IDW Dredd comics. This Funko stuff seems to be exploding at the moment.
