Inspired by Clint Eastwood in Dirty Harry; the film poster for Death Race 2000. The name Judge Dredd came from Pat Mills who was originally going to use it for a different character. The first Judge Dredd story published was drawn by Mike McMahon, not co-creator Carlos Ezquerra. Ezquerra was so upset that he didn't draw Dredd for five years afterwards, only returning for the Apocalypse War mega-epic.
