This is Judge Dredd.

August 30, 2012

He likes riding his bike, polishing his helmet, upholding the law (it’s very rewarding) and free pizza (who doesn’t?)

He doesn’t like; smiling (he’s not very good at it), shouting at people (although he does this a lot), when people don’t listen to him (he has to shout), when people shoot at him (he has to shoot back) and perps.

Here’s an alternative version. I wanted to go with the original black and white look, but couldn’t resist doing a coloured version.

The new film comes out next week, I don’t know about anyone else but reckon Dredd would make a great TV show (is an animated one too much to ask for?). It’s cops for petes sake! How can you go wrong?

The Dead Will Rise

June 20, 2010

On the 25th of June 2009 Michael Jackson died. Around the same time the Blackest Night event was going on in the DC comics universe.

All these dead superheroes were being resurrected left right and centre. I figured the only logical step for me was to combine the two.

Why not MJ? He was a hero to quite a lot of people in a way, if you just saw on the news the way people were flocking to pay their respects. Shrines had been set up all over central London, there was one I remembered in particular outside the Lyric Theatre in the West End where ‘Thriller’ the Michael Jackson musical was running.

I guess it was the obvious thing to use him in his Thriller outfit since the Black Lanterns are a bunch of zombies, well intergalactic zombies with superpowers that don’t die to be exact.

I started drawing on the 26th of June and had finished it by the 28th. I then forgot about it completely for just over half a year. I got round to inking and finishing it yesterday. I guess it serves as a sort of tribute to him. Better late than never, and in time for the 1st anniversary of his death.

Black Lantern Jackson…

RISE!
