Orlok was (just once) a bingo caller. You see, Orlok’s dear departed mum used to be in a bingo club of sorts with the rest of the street and the regular caller was ill one night so they needed a last minute replacement in the form of a disinterested 14 year old scrote. Having no concept of the terminology (two fat ladies, etc), Orlok just made it up as he went along with things such as “Twenty six. Your mum sucks dicks!” He was not invited back.
May 2106 (Prog 372).
John Wagner and Alan Grant call the numbers and Kim Raymond shouts house.
WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT (IN ONE SENTENCE)?:
Dredd and his Rookie smash a Bingo ring.
WHO’S THAT IN THE HELMET?:
Rookie Judge Dekker and her black hair make several key arrests.
ANY LAW LORE?:
Bingo, like all gambling, is illegal in Mega City One and carries a sentence of up to 5 years.
Dekker is Dredd’s best rookie ever.
Bingoholics have been a problem for 200 years
WHAT’S THE ART LIKE?:
Great framing again and the panel layouts are excellent. There’s even a circle panel rammed in there.
HOW MANY LINKS?:
The bingo calling numbers are funny and the prospect of this being a long term issue is funny. It’s a low level crime for the Judges but still preys on the vulnerable. Four links.
