Out this month is my latest comic strip for the Judge Dredd Megazine, a nine page Tale from the Black Museum called 'Slay it with Flowers' written by the talented hand of Alec Worley. The Black Museum stories are 'Dreddworld' stories which basically means they take part in the world of Judge Dredd and in this case in Mega-City One. Digging into a story called Father Earth from 1979, Alec has brought back an old villain, well, only a small but deadly part of him. 'Lovelorn botanist Crayton Stump discovers the key to winning the girl of his dreams when he stumbles upon a flower growing from the remains of the mutant cult leader Father Earth.' I drew this back in Spring of this year so its good to see it in print and it was a bit of a thrill to delve into a classic Dredd strip and add our own after story.
Alec has written up a great post on his own blog where he not only gives you a potted overview of the Tales of the Black Museum series but also a small Q&A section with myself, so go take a look.
Tales From The Black Museum: Slay It With Flowers appears in the Judge Dredd Megazine # 315 (out now) and is available from all comic shops and selected newsagents. See 2000 AD’s official website for subscription and digital download details.
