- Al Ewing’s Dredd story in year one is Wear Iron which is in this collection.
- We reached out to Jeff Parker about if he was a Dredd fan, the villains and more and he was great enough to reply.
Definitely a 2000 AD fan, and of course it was a chance to tell a ‘last Judge Dredd’ story. It worked in with the way I portrayed Luke in the series, always put-upon, always with the weight of the world on his shoulders. Boss Cage knows the whole world is messed up and beyond saving, he just wants it to have never happened. A good chance to do something with post apocalypse worlds. I remember Kev telling me about concept stuff for the Dredd movie and how everyone quickly realized you couldn’t turn a motorcycle wheel that was that wide. Of course, ours was cobbled together out of Marvel characters in that alt future scenario, so it’s not just giant tires, they’re flaming with Ghost Rider hellfire.
- You can follow Al Ewing on Twitter and check out Judge Dredd to learn the magic of the THRILL POWER!
We will be back Friday with him talking Contest of Champions!
