Prog 350 – Pieromania

CF07Story: Pieromania
Appears: 350
Issues: 1
Writers: John Wagner and Alan Grant
Art: Kim Raymond
Dated: 7 January 1984

Dredd gets a custard-substitute-pie in the face on TV which starts a pie throwing trend.

This story predicts happy slapping and the viral video 30 years before they would arrive. Our desire for fads which was being commented in the 1980’s is still with us.

New artist Kim Raymond has a distinctive style with very thick black lines and quite a few missing backgrounds pointing to a very hastily completed job. Maybe a last minute replacement took place as the next two issues were reprints of Mutie the Pig from progs 34-35.
