A very moving documentary, a great testament to one of Tharg’s wildest and greatest droids.

TalkComix has a short video interview with the great John Wagner, recorded at the recent Glasgow Comic Convention:
He discusses how pleased he is with Dredd and talks about “Day of Chaos,” his new Judge Death story, Strontium Dog and the Button Man film.
Actor Karl Urban said taking on the role of Judge Dredd in the upcoming movie was ‘an extraordinary challenge’ at London’s Comic Con on Saturday (July 7).
Returning to the big screen for the first time since Sylvester Stallone’s much-derided 1995 flop, the 2000 AD comic figure is reborn, with Urban cemented into the title role for a movie that promises plenty of action and thrills.
The New Zealand-born star said looking at the Stallone movie gave him some good pointers.
“I personally actually found it quite handy to look at that film to see what worked and what didn’t work. It really helped me to inform me, as I was approaching the character, about choices I wanted to male and choices I didn’t want to make,” he said Dredd’s helmet remains firmly affixed to his head throughout the entire reboot, with Urban saying the producers warned him about this from the outset, and that it stays true to the comic books.
“You know entering into any film is a challenge and this was an extraordinary challenge. First off the bat, knowing that I wasn’t going to have the benefit and use of my eyes which is such a valuable asset and tool for an actor. And by the way, that’s the way it should be done,” he said, to the approval of the science fiction fans in the audience, who later applauded the statement.
Urban also explained to fans about the gruelling physical schedule he put himself through to prepare for playing the futuristic action hero.
“The first thing I started to do was stop drinking beer and eating hamburgers coupled with the fact that I had to start lifting lots of heavy things multiple times a day - a lot of gym work. I found that quite a daunting proposition. I was working out twice a day, eating six times a day and everytime I would come back and there’s my pile of Dredd comics and there’s this ripped figure just goading me everytime I am looking at this comic,” he told fans.
London’s Comic Con is an annual an event for fans of films and comic memorabilia.
Dredd is released in the UK on September 7 and in the U.S. a fortnight later.
So, other than the pictures, I made a few videos as well, this being the longest. I thought I’d throw it up here, but than it took an age and a half to do so with my shity net, so now I hope the effort was worth it for everyone. :)
The “questioner” asked them to address the issue of Dredd not having a secret civilian life like a proper superhero.
Karl speaks from about 2:24, the first guy is the writer (Alex Garland?). Sorry, Karl stole all my attention. :D
Anthrax’s “I Am the Law” from their 1987 album Among the Living. This song is my personal favorite on the album.
