History

Mayor Jim Grubb is a supporting character in the 2000 AD strip Judge Dredd. He was the genial, popular civic leader of Mega-City One who was forced to imitate a chicken by the insane Judge Caligula. Grubb went missing during the first days of The Apocalypse War and resurfaced at the war's end, having been driven insane by the trauma of the conflict and reduced to living as a tramp. While searching for food with his fellow hobos, Grubb contracted mysterious parasitic infection — later known as 'Grubb's disease' — which turned him into walking fungus. The finest minds of the city's medical fraternity couldn't save Jim, who passed away with the poignant last words, "Please don't eat me!"

To commemorate his years of dedication to the public good, the city later named an airport after him.
