Celebrate the Work Of Brian Bolland Or Go To the Isocubes!

This is as close to owning a Brian Bolland piece as many of us sad brokeasses will get any time soon. He’s one of the most brilliant comic artists of all time and buying his original art, especially art featuring marquee characters like Judge Dredd, requires some capital I just don’t have at this moment.

BUT I do have $100. And you have $100. So, it’s now a shootout for this Eagle-era Judge Dredd comic production art. Am I the only weirdo that pushes production art as the most viable and fun comic-related collectable? Maybe I am, but I have my reasons:

Reason One: It’s still the beautiful art you want.
Reason Two: It celebrates comics as a format and the history of the industry.

In this case, the third reason is that you don’t want to get originals wet from drool when looking at this art. Buy this immediately.

Megacity Pinball

So I’m not going to post an auction for the full Judge Dredd pinball machine. It goes for over $2,000 and if you’re that into pinball or Dredd you’re probably already hunting it. But I will post this backglass display from the game. It’s cool as hell and would look good framed. And it’s currently at less than $20. This is value shopping, dude.

I don’t know how the new Dredd movie will be. I’m hopeful, but hesitant to be so. Judge Dredd is an important part of my life as a comic reader and I don’t like to see him stepped on. So join me in buying up some Dredd merch before the movie hits as a vote of confidence in the character and hopefully the film. I’m wearing my Judge Fire shirt right now.

Brian Bolland Blowout Bonanza!

Two things I really like, finally together and for sale. Brian Bollard and production art. I love the former because he added a genuine love of anatomy to comic art and I love the latter because it’s cheap. Production art is a great alternative to original pages for those of us on a budget.

To illustrate my point, here’s an original page from our man Brian. Note the difference in price between it and the production art auction.

Thrash Metal is Not a Crime

You know, I often joke about replacing your significant other if they won’t allow you to hang comic art on the walls of your home. This time I’m not joking. This Anthrax/Judge Dredd tapestry deserves at least a livingroom wall, if not its own section of the house. Look at this thing. It’s everything you wanted as a kid. Loud music and a science fiction cop. I bet when you hang it up, a tear in the fabric of space opens and naked women come out from behind it. PLus you can bring it with you to Anthrax shows and be the weird Euro dude who likes to wave giant tapestries at concerts. Buy this today before I do.

I am the Law! Now Give Me a Second to Consult My Rule Book.

I’m back from ComicCon and I’m sure you want all the juicy details, the gossip, and some word on the con exclusives. Sorry. I don’t care about exclusives and the only gossip I got was that a well-liked editor at a big publisher was punched dead in the face by another well-liked and significant publishing figure.

While I take a day to collect my thoughts and feelings on the subject of “A Celebration of the Popular Arts” as the event bills itself, I’m going to bring your attention to this bizarre little auction.

A custom-made replica of the Judges’ Book of Law, as seen in the Judge Dredd movie. Why? I don’t know. Maybe put it in with your other law books and someday a friend will notice. Maybe leave it on you coffee table. It’s essentially a sight gag because I don’t think it has any actual content, so you’ve got to hope you run in a circle that would recognize the book. Maybe carry it on the subway and see if anyone notices.

I’ll Do Some Time In the Cubes For This

Check the starting price on this auction. Now tell me anyone can afford it on a law-abiding salary. Can’t. What would Judge Dredd think about me committing crime to afford this beautiful Mike McMahon page?

Drokk! It’s the Judges! Run!

Some kids grow up idolizing their dads. Some kids want to be their older brothers. My dad was in jail and my brother was on coke so, for me, Judge Dredd was the strong male influence I needed. Sure, he stepped on civil liberties and may’ve been a bit severe at times (“switch to hi-ex!”) but he was a man of his times! Mega-City One is a dangerous place. It’s up to the Judges to maintain order! That’s why we gave them that power!

Over in the US, Judge Dredd was a sort of cult book. Back in the UK, this dude was bigger than Mickey Mouse. I thought to best demonstrate Judge Dredd’s cult of personality, I’d highlight some auctions that have nothing to do with comics.

Here we have the speaker cut-out’s from the classic Judge Dredd pinball game. What purpose do they serve now? That’s up to you, perp!

My favorite auction I’ve seen in a long minute. A dude selling an index card with a a marker and color pencil illustration of his own. This is genius. Dude is an Ebay millionaire, I guarantee it.
