Slay it with Flowers! Judge Dredd Megazine
Posted 11 years ago and submitted by Graeme Neil Reid | Share link:


Out this week is my latest comic strip for the Judge Dredd Megazine, a nine page Tale from the Black Museum called ‘Slay it with Flowers’ written by the talented hand of Alec Worley. The Black Museum stories are ‘Dreddworld’ stories which basically means they take part in the world of Judge Dredd and in this case in Mega-City One. Digging into a story called Father Earth from 1979, Alec has brought back an old villain, well, only a small but deadly part of him. ‘Lovelorn botanist Crayton Stump discovers the key to winning the girl of his dreams when he stumbles upon a flower growing from the remains of the mutant cult leader Father Earth.’ I drew this back in Spring of this year so its good to see it in print and it was a bit of a thrill to delve into a classic Dredd strip and add our own after story.

Tales From The Black Museum: Slay It With Flowers appears in the Judge Dredd Megazine # 315 (out now) and is available from all comic shops and selected newsagents. © Rebellion

I employed Graeme as the sole illustrator and designer on The Dangerous Book of Heroes. The quality of his work was excellent and he was great at understanding what we at HarperCollins needed, and at doing it quickly too. It was a complicated project, and the drawings needed to be historically accurate as well as engaging for the reader and Graeme was particularly good at paying attention to the details which were important to us and the author. The project was on a tight timescale and he rose to the challenge, producing everything in time and to budget, with great creativity, speed and care.
