This week in Dredd Reckoning: special guest Anne Ishii and I take on "Shimura," phenotypes, Babes with Big Bazookas, Goseki Kojima-by-way-of-Frank Miller homages, and "adolescent kidnap-and-ravage fantasies" involving Carey Hiroyuki-Tagawa. Simon Fraser responds in the comments!

This week in Dredd Reckoning: "Lenny Zero and the Perps of Mega-City One," in which Andy Diggle and Jock collaborate for the first time, Damon Runyon's voice is not-entirely-successfully evoked, and Truman Kaput has an imperfect understanding of what "cross-dressing" means.

This week on Dredd Reckoning: Indiana "Indy" Saddoe, rockism, the hits of 1890, Judge Dread (sic), "Judge Dread" (sic), and lots of embedded YouTubes of songs about the Mega-Cities, canonical and otherwise.

This week on Dredd Reckoning: Garth Ennis's kiss-off, our first trip to Titan, a "writer's starter kit," Russian names a la "Asterix," a resident redshirt, and an opportunity to quote one of my favorite Half Man Half Biscuit lines.
