Now all the people that were complaining that I was making a big deal about this comeback being a big fucking deal can sit down. SuJu SAID that if this time they don’t do well, it won’t be good for the group.

We literally have to make sure that they win awards, that they top the charts, that they get a fuck ton of views on the MV, and that they get support. We have to vote our asses off, and show them that ELF aren’t going anywhere.

To all you ELF’s that are saying that they’ll be fine, I don’t think you understand that the our boys are fucking scared of failing. Yesung fucking cried because he wants them to do well, wants to be with the members and have it be like the old times where they were on top of the world.

They know a lot of fans have left, they know what happens in the fandom, they aren’t blind or stupid. They have legitimate worries and we need to take this fucking seriously. I won’t see this group fade away because ELF are too lazy to stream, vote and support their supposed UB group that they love so much.

These men have touched my heart and have made me so happy and I’ll be damned if I become the source of their sadness.

Speaking of Ezquerra, I really like how even once Dredd's design was 'finalized' throughout the years, even now whenever he draws Dredd's uniform he always has the zipper offset to the left instead of down the center like every other artist. It's a nice touch.

Oh yes. And it’s funny but it actually looks a bit more believable? Like, I’ve seen police and military uniforms with offset zippers, or at least with double-breasted jackets that kinda look like that. Really, Ezquerra’s Dredd is full of those tiny details, like how his badge design is just a bit different from anyone else’s, or how his Lawgiver is a pitch black MkI with a shorter barrel. And I love that because it links the character that much more to the artist drawing him, which is absolutely crucial in an industry that still kinda loves to erase creators.

Just the fact that you can talk about Ezquerra’s Dredd or Flint’s Dredd or Critchlow’s Dredd is invaluable, and it also ties into something I dearly, dearly love about early Dredd in particular: the personal touches and different spins that every artist gave to the uniform, and how they were picked up and reinterpeted by other artists. Or as I like to call it, the “Mike McMahon Effect”.

People talk a lot about how Ezquerra’s Dredd was very lean and spindly and how he bulked up over the years, but to me it’s important to recognize that that evolution came from Ezquerra (and everyone else really) looking at McMahon’s Dredd and basically going “THAT. I WANT TO DO THAT.”

So it’s not just a matter of every artist putting their personal touches, but also looking at what other artists were doing and putting that into their designs. It’s something that could only happen so effectively in an environment like 2000AD, with close-knit rotating teams and art commissioned to suit each strip’s genre/themes. And it pleases me greatly to see it still happening, like when Ben Willsher drew the new SJS Lawmasters and Henry Flint picked it up.

In a nutshell, I love Ezquerra’s Dredd, but I also love the artistic cross-pollination that resulted in the leather-clad slab of granite we have today.
