Sinister Dexter » Junk Bond (Part 6)
The swollen city of Downlode lies sprawled across the heart of future Europe like a hit-and-run victim. Here, life is cheap - if you want someone whacked, you can't buy better bullet monkeys than Finnigan SINISTER and Ramone DEXTER, the city's primo hitmen.
Inspired by John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson in Pulp Fiction.
Artist Jason Brashill declined the chance to co-create Sinister Dexter but he did paint the cover image to promote the characters' first appearance in Prog 981.
Sinister is Latin for left, while Dexter is Latin for right
From Grace » From Grace (Part 5)
Sometime in a post-apocalyptic future, winged race the Shee live in tribal camps out in the radiated wastelands, away from the humans - "the Wingless" - who struggle to survive in the ruins of their cities. The Shee live in fear of mankind, who habitually raids their camps, stealing their food and ravaging the people. Kaith is the product of one such raid - a half-breed, shunned by his peers, he grows ever more introspective, resentment festering against the world. Now, as he dies, his life unspools, charting his fall from grace...
Judge Dredd » See Zammy Run (Part 2)
Mega-City One, 2130 AD. This vast urban nightmare on the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America is home to 400 million citizens, every one a potential criminal. With lawlessness rife, only the Judges can prevent total anarchy. These future lawmen are judge, jury and executioner. Toughest of them all is Judge Dredd - he is the Law!
Inspired by Clint Eastwood in Dirty Harry; the film poster for Death Race 2000
The name Judge Dredd came from Pat Mills who was originally going to use it for a different character
The first Judge Dredd story published was drawn by Mike McMahon, not co-creator Carlos Ezquerra. Ezquerra was so upset he didn't draw Dredd for five years afterwards, only returning for the Apocalypse War mega-epic.
