Colour scheme for this image based on one devised by Brendan McCarthy
There'll be some scarred retinas amongst the Squaxx this week - this is my cover for Prog 1713, based on Brendan McCarthy's amazing psychedelic Dredd story that's running at the moment. Brendan's a bit of a hero of mine, so doing something that would live up to his work was a real challenge. Matching his positively electric colour palette took quite a bit of time and thought. I haven't seen the finished article in print yet, and I'm still a bit nervous about whether it'll turn out alright.

If you're interested in seeing how this cover was put together, there's a full step-by-step demo on Pete Wells' excellent 2000AD Covers Uncovered.

I love this cover - great forced perspective.
