Exclamation 1996 Judge Dredd Wall Calendar, please help me find one!

EDIT: I finally found one, so nothing to see here, move along...

Hello all;

Somewhere in my collection, I have the 1996 Judge Dredd Wall Calendar. These would have been sold in book stores and comic shops across the United States back in the fall of 1995, its release having been timed to coincide with the release of the Sylvester Stallone movie.

I need to scan an image of Dredd that was in that calendar, because I have been unable to find a digital copy of the image, despite years of scouring the internet in search of it. Unfortunately, I can no longer locate my copy of the calendar. It's somewhere in my collection, but I have no clue where.

THIS IS WHERE YOU COME IN. I need assistance to locate another copy. This is what the cover of the calendar looks like:



I have already checked the usual suspects. There are none on eBay, nor have there been at any time in the recent past. There are none on Amazon, although checking their site did help me obtain the ISBN info for the calendar. I then used that the search on ABE Books (a search engine for rare and out-of-print books and other products that have an ISBN.) That also turned up bupkus.

But while I'm on the subject, here's the ISBN info from Amazon...

ISBN-10: 0781912520
ISBN-13: 978-0781912525

With the summer convention season upon us, I know that at least a few of you will find yourselves in large rooms full of dealers specializing in comic book and SF memorabilia. I also know that at least some of you may visit shops specializing in SF & comic memorabilia that would have old, out-of-print items such as this. Find me this calendar, if you can. I'd prefer it in Near Mint condition, but at this point, as long as it's complete and in good shape, I'll be satisfied.

If you can track one down, or already have one you wouldn't mind parting with, shoot me a Private Message. Thanks in advance for your cooperation, citizens!

Thanks! Unfortunately, my memory is unreliable at best. The calendar arrived yesterday, but the image I'm looking for is NOT in that calendar, so now I have no CLUE where I saw it, which is only going to make it even MORE improbable to track down.

I've literally spent YEARS searching for a particular piece of Judge Dredd art off and on. I've spent many hours scouring the interwebz for the image I'm looking for, to no avail.

It's very interesting that you say that. You see, the Co-Creators of Judge Dredd were Writer John Wagner and Artist Carlos Ezquerra, both of whom still work on the strip from time to time to this very day. But they are the officially recognized co-creators of the strip. Who is Pat Mills and what did he do on the strip? Writer? Artist?

As I said earlier, I had the chance to meet Pat Mills on a festival of comics this summer in the south of France and I can assure you that it is co-creator of Judge Dredd. His work on the War of Charley is really great! Recognized by Alan Moore who said work "no one has managed to present itself as just the inhumanity and misery that Pat Mills and Joe Colquhoun in the war masterpiece Charley."

Okay, did some digging on my own...

Here's the credits as per Wikipedia...
Quote:
Created by John Wagner (writer)
Carlos Ezquerra (artist)
Pat Mills (editor)
Crediting the Editor of a comic or magazine as one of the creators of a particular comic character is not at all typical in the industry. The credit typically goes to the Writer and Artist, and that's it.

In fact, Wikipedia adds this tidbit:
Quote:
The character was created by writer John Wagner and artist Carlos Ezquerra, with contributions to his early development by editor Pat Mills.
In watching the documentaries on the Blu-Ray of 2012's film adaptation DREDD, I don't remember Pat Mills' contributions even being mentioned when the creation of the character was discussed. Looks like I now have an excuse to watch them again!
