The city is as much a character in Judge Dredd as Dredd himself and this story touches on that. Not all Perps start out bad but in the end a Perp is a Perp.
A story that wouldn’t be out of place in the Prog or Meg showing the odd behaviours of citizens and how they can justify anything to themselves.
Created by Alan McKenzie and Dave D’Antiquis Brigand Doom has always been published in black & white within the pages of 2000AD. A lesser known strip this deals with an undead Highwayman in a dystopian future city called ‘The City.
The no-compassion and all consuming justice of this character is laid out in this story with dark and moody art.
Judge Anderson was introduced in the same story as Judge Death and is a fine example of the strong supporting cast that inhabits Judge Dredd’s world.
Some nice panels illustrating the Psi action in this story. The story is more or less a routine investigation, in flight, on an interstellar civilian passenger craft.
Introduced in the Judge Child epic Judge Hershey, now Chief Judge Hershey, is yet another example of those strong support characters in the world of Judge Dredd.
A kind of over-the-shoulder view of a day in the life of the Chief Judge. Brutal script and some great line work in the art.
Strontium Dog is the subject of Zarjaz’s sister Fanzine Dogbreath. Similarly Strontium Dog started off in 2000AD’s sister title Starlord and switched to 2000AD when the titles were merged.
Mark Howard has a great way of thinking outside the box and this script delivers on another level. Perfectly complimented by 2000AD colourist, Darren Stephens.
TV shows have often been the subject of Judge Dredd stories, as I said earlier Mega-City One is as much a character as Dredd.
This story looks at an illegal show and how Dredd deals with it. Cracking art and the pacing is just great for a one-shot.
