"Judge Dredd - the Complete Brian Bolland"

Available from good booksellers: "Judge Dredd - the Complete Brian Bolland" Published by IDW.

I can think of a few items of my Judge Dredd output that are not included. A Time Out cover. A few annual and Eagle comics covers. But here is my entire run of 2000 AD Dredd pages plus lots of extras and a two-page introduction by me. 313 pages in all. A perfect Christmas gift!


  1. I'm sure I have all of the material anyway but i'll be buying this for sure!

    It is a shame that the Eagle comics covers aren't in it though, they were excellent!

  2. All your 2000AD Dredd? Including the Jolly green giant stuff?

  3. There are 15 Eagle covers and 3 images taken from Titan books. Rebellion and Fleetway never had possession of the artwork so I supplied them from my files, all black and white. There's all (I think) of my Dredd 2000 AD covers except for the Jolly Green Giant cover and a couple of annual covers.

    It's mostly very crisp, better than I'd feared, but there are about three whole stories that have printed heavy and the letratone greys have gone muddy and moired. Some of the 2000 AD covers are taken from my files and are printed perfectly in black and white (for the first time in some cases) some are scanned from printed covers and have been printed in colour as well as can be expected. Some from proofs that I have here have come out very well. They're all bigger that originally printed.

  4. The “extras” in the Judge Dredd - the complete Brian Bolland are as follows:

    2000 AD covers 82, 98, 105, 134, 146, 156, 161, 172, 173, 182, 197, 199, 210, 216, 224, 225, 240, 236, 403, 848 (full colour), 2000 (line only), 1515 (in full colour), none of which are “extras” because they were 2000 AD covers.

    Eagle Comics covers in black & white line: 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 21, 23, 26, 29, 32.

    The back cover of the first Titan Books collection (but not the first!).

    The cover of Eagle Comics 2000 AD Monthly #1, 5.

    The interior page of the first Titan Book Judge Dredd featuring Dredd & Walter the Wobot.

    Judge Dredd Crime File Nos 1 & 3 (the black & white versions of four full colour covers!)

    Predator Vs Judge Dredd cover #1.

    Fergee. A pinup from 2000 AD.

    Tweak. A pinup from 2000 AD prog 83.

    Judge Bardot. My French friend, Fred Manzano, was interested in seeing Bridgit Bardot dressed in nothing more than the JD costume. I obliged!

    Judge Death. A poster I drew for sale at the time.

  5. You don't have the 2000ad Annual 1983 cover there you have drawn Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog and Rogue Trooper it is a cool cover.

  6. Will you ever finish that New Judge Dredd story off?

  7. I don't have one to finish off. The one John wrote for me I never started and it was given to another artist. I never saw it finished. If I do a new one it'll have to be started from scratch.
