Titan rising: Judge Dredd by Mick McMahon

The Judge Dredd art of Mick McMahon was always my least favourite as a kid, more drawn to the crystal clear lines of Bolland, or the bulky superheroics of Ron Smith. Now I genuinely think it is incomparably amazing, with weird anatomy and dramatic shadows. His Dredd is almost always standing wide and firm as he deals with alien scum and mechanical psychos, and is always instantly recognisable. It took me a while, but I got there in the end - if you don't get McMahon's Dredd, you don't really get Dredd.
