Think of 2000AD and you think of Judge Dredd. Think of Dredd and you have to think of John Wagner’s writing and the art work of Carlos Ezquerra.
Today I am going to share with you one of my most prized possessions, my Carlos Ezquerra piece.
For as long as I can remember there has been something so appealing and compelling about his work. Some of my earliest memories are of his Dredd and Strontium Dog art and as I started to build my collection I knew I needed to find one of his.
A few years back I managed to pick up what you can see here in pictures. Cost a pretty penny at £500 but god I love it. It comes from Prog 734 published in 1991 and below you can see a photo of the weekly Prog next to the original artwork used for publication.
It features not only Dredd but all 4 of the dark Judges in Death, Fear, Fire and Mortis and also includes the acetate with the lettering which is overlaid over the artwork. I keep it hidden away mostly and dont like to get it out apart from now and again when I like to just stare at it and smile…
