First Luna Bank Robbed by Dead Comedians

CF 01The Tooley brothers were arrested after Judge-Marshal Dredd went undercover. The brothers disguised themselves using a face-change machine to look like 20th century comedians. With Dredd recording their confession in secret not even their lawyer, the notorious Many Bloom, could get them off.

Dredd was heard to say “They’re making a nasty smell in the Justice Building.”

Story: Face-Changers
Appears: 2000AD Prog 52
Issues: 1
Writers: John Wagner
Art: Brian Bolland
Dated: 18 February 1978

A quirky premise and Bolland really delivers some outstanding likenesses. The opening page really makes you sit up and take notice with this unusual spectacle. Good sci-fi with the face change machine and Dredd catches them through his wits not his fists.
