  1. It’s a great image as we all well know and love, but the strap line doesn’t fit! If it was say, an image of a the Viper Gang attacking Dredd, then yep that works… What a flippin bodge…

  2. Can anyone help me with this query…

    In Prog 1907, Block Judge Part 8, Beeny says to Corrigan:

    “Let’s do some busts.”

    He replies:

    “I’ve got an AWP at the mall.”

    I’m curious to know what AWP means. I don’t recall the term in any previous Dredd story. I Googled the term:

    “AWP: The Accuracy International Arctic Warfare rifle is a family of bolt-action sniper rifles designed and manufactured by the British company, Accuracy International.”

    John Wagner was referring to a British sniper weapon? Seems unlikely! Anyone have any idea what an AWP is? If anyone knows, thanks.

  3. I don’t remember that acronym featuring in a Dredd strip before either. In prog 1907, Corrigan states “I GOT an AWP at the mall”, to which Beeny responds “the AWP can wait. SHIFT IT”. That suggests the term refers to a duty or appointment, rather than an object or a type of crime in progress.

    Corrigan’s next seen occupying a raised observation platform at the Gramercy Heights mall, so I’m going to fancon AWP as referring to Aerial Watch Platform duty.

  4. “Aerial Watch Platform duty.”

    Thanks, John.

    It’s great to have John Wagner posting here! His alter-ego is Sauchieboy, y’know.
    🙂
