Sad news.
A part of my childhood gone.
There’s a lovely tribute to him on the 2000ad website.
I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.

One of the greats. I always loved his work, especially the Strontium Dog stories. And he was great with the comic book nerds too. Always had time for a sketch or a commission. Today has been a bad day.

I don't know which artist has had the most success with the Judge, but I like the gritty linework of his, more suited than the slickness of Brian Bolland. Of course, when I was young, I felt the exact opposite.

Yes spot on.
Ezquerra was more of an acquired taste.

We had the Judge Dredd board game (artwork not by CE iirc).

It was dreadful.
