I saw this cover and thought "Wow! This is how Judge Dredd gets his start! This looks awesome! I wonder if there'll be Strontium Dogs in it too!"
Reading the first few pages and it because clear the word was Dread, not Dredd. Dread as in Dreadlocks. Still not sure why there's the Hangeul symbol for "Yes" on the helmet. But it's still a good story.
I liked the unified Africa angle, though I'm not exactly sure what the Crown was trying to accomplish sending the main character to Africa. The character tangled with Saffers associated with a white nationalist movement, and later fought them in the streets of London. But that didn't seem like all that he was up to in Africa. It's kinda strange that his activities there didn't have much to do with the main conspiracy plot.
Now I'm reading his newest work The Last Prince of Alkebulahn, which so far I've felt a bit less compelled, but I'm not the target audience this time. In the Days of Dread plays to an older crowd that knows a bit about the horrors of war away and at home. It's the sort of story you get when you learn about PTSD, though it isn't a PTSD story. It would've been a bit more interesting if it was, though. But I was happy with it anyway.
In other news, I got the last cover I wanted for The Bite Cleaner, and I'll probably use that on the pay site or ad fodder. I also got commissioned to write an article about Superhumans and international law by Graphic Justice. I'm in the editing stages of that article now, which I hope to have up on his site by June. The title will be "Battlefield Executions by Superhumans; legality and utility examined" or something akin to that. It's needlessly wordy like most legal briefs!
