Henry Flint - Dredd in a Tight 'Un!

Poor Joe has had yet another good kicking on the cover of Prog 1866, this time from 'The Big Man' herself,  Low Life bad gal, Aimee Nixon! For those who are a little in the dark, Aimee was a Wally Squad Judge in the Low Life, the baddest, meanest part of the Big Meg.

Recently, the Yakuza initiated a hostile takeover of the Low Life, using information and contacts from the mysterious 'Big Man' in the Meg to gain a foothold. In a bloody battle, Aimee had her arm sliced off and was kidnapped by the Japanese criminals.

Wally Squad Judge Dirty Frank went on a suicide mission to Hondo City to find his friend and former colleague. However, when he did, he discovered that Aimee had been the 'Big Man' all along and had sold out his beloved city to the Yakuza.

Frank overpowered Aimee and delivered her to back Mega-City One. Here she struck a deal to avoid Titan, as long as she gave up her Yakuza secrets. However, it looks like the Justice Department wasn't in the bargaining mood after all...

Henry Flint, artist on the series had a whale of a time, saying "I'm loving Titan, I had so much fun with Rob's script!" It shows too; below is Henry's rough for the cover, absolutely crackling with atmosphere...

Titan Shambles.

And here, as if by magic, is the finished cover. Henry says the cover is 'a mixture of acrylics and computer colour,' hopefully not using the destructive method he used for his previous cover...

Dredd never did want to appear on the Celebrity Enema Show.
Finally, here's what the design droids did with the image, nice!

Dredd loses a bionic contact lens...
Titanic thanks, as ever to Henry for once again supporting the blog. Definitely a contender for cover of the year this one! To see more of Henry's work, go to
