Karl Richardson - Breakout!

Boom! Here's an action packed cover for Prog 1718 by the brilliant Karl Richardson. He sent me this a couple of weeks ago and I bet him that Pye-01 would put text over the rather gruesome spurting blood from the judge's neck. Looks like I lose!

The story by Al Ewing focuses on Devil's Island, the strange vehicular prison mentioned in the first ever published Dredd story, Judge Whitey. Art on the story is by comics legend John Higgins who has long been a favourite of mine - I can't wait! Below is Karl's rather lovely rough which completely captures the insanity of the fnished cover!

Thanks as ever to Karl for sending the cover, he's a star!


  1. That's only the second cover I've seen by this guy (but i've been out of touch) Absolutely gorgeous painted style.

  2. Hey Alex, Karl is brilliant and a really nice guy to boot! Put his name in the search box at the top of this page to see more of his outstanding work.
