The Return of Rico

Blast from the past here. 2000AD art comp entry from a few years ago, on the theme 'Classic 2000AD moments'. Based on the superb Pat Mills and Mike McMahon tale 'The Return of Rico' which really made an impact on me as a kid. It was like nothing I had come across on my diet of Marvel UK comics. The story revealed that Judge Dredd had a clone brother, Rico, who turned out to be a bent Judge who Dredd sentenced to twenty years hard labour on the prison colony of Titan – with body parts modified so he could breathe in a vacuum. Rico then came to take revenge on his brother. Reprinted in the excellent Judge Dredd Case Files 01.

Am I on?

Because you demanded it – well, one or two art chaps have suggested that I get blogging, so I finally got round to setting this up. Guess I'll mainly be chucking in stuff produced for the 2000ad art comps and the Weekly Themed Art Blog. Got a bit of a backlog of pieces to upload so it'll be a mixture of new and old for now.
