Introduction: While trading at the Lawgiver 2 convention held in Bristol I was lucky enough to meet 2000AD forum members who told me that they had enjoyed my previous advent comic strips. I decided to draw another 25 page Judge Dredd story. After a week or so I came up with the idea for Bad Crop and began to write the story. As usual I write a page synopsis first. Then begin to flesh out the story. After that I start drawing up the rough page layouts.
