Jimbo's Top 9 of 2009 #8: Heavy Metal Dredd:Kiss of Death

A strange year that saw two of my old Judge Dredd Megazine strips reprinted. One appears in 'Heavy Metal Dredd' a graphic novel published by Rebellion. Originally Heavy Metal was an uncensored take on Judge Dredd, but as time passed became a showcase for artists Simon Bisley and John Hicklenton. I worked on 'Kiss of Death' with the latter. I have a lot of time for John's work and his overlapping mosaic long-limbed style approach. Featuring rampaging psychotic mutant kissergrams, what we have is an elaborate excuse to build up to a killer last line. Which I won't give you here. Ask me next time you bump into me.
