It looks like after a lengthy battle with lung cancer, Judge Dredd co-creator and Strontium Dog Carlos Ezquerra has passed away at the age of 70. Besides Dredd and Strontium, Carlos was a supremely talented and prolific artist who worked on countless 2000 AD projects over the years. His work had a real profound effect on me growing up, as I can still remember the first time I flipped through a 2000 AD issue with Judge Dredd in it. I grew up in a small town in TN, so suddenly being exposed to this violent over-the-top parody of American law enforcement blew my fragile little mind away. 

I’m gonna miss this talented madman.
