Description

A good deal of the humour at first comes from putting a straight-laced hard-boiled supercop into the type of patently ridiculous futuristic society typical of the more satirical strain of UK science-fiction, and having him act like the "straight man" to everything around him. It'll be another few hundred issues before the level of storytelling improves and I may dip in and out of this series until I get to the Dead Man and Necropolis, but I'm also keen to catch up on the Judge Child, Chopper and other stuff I missed.

The satirical British comic debuted in the late Seventies and has been continuing in real time ever since, making our resident antihero roughly eighty-four in 2022. Written by John Wagner (A History of Violence) with drawn by a host of acclaimed artists including Kev Walker (The Eternals), Cam Kennedy (Star Wars), and Carlos Ezquerra (Preacher), this is Judge Dredd at his pulse-pounding best! This first blockbuster volume features storylines written by comic legends John Wagner ( A History of Violence), Pat Mills ( Marshall Law) and Alan Grant ( Batman), with art by Brian Bolland ( The Killing Joke), Mick McMahon ( The Last American) and many more! He has written twenty-five novels for the Black Library, including the acclaimed Gaunt's Ghosts series and the Eisenhorn and Ravenor trilogies, and with Mike Lee, the Darkblade cycle. The following stories originally appeared in 2000AD Prog 1365 - Prog 1387 and Judge Dredd Megazine 207 - 213.Craig Russell, Arvell Jones, Keith Pollard, Chic Stone, Sal Buscema, Jeff Aclin, Carmine Infantino, John Romita, Keith Giffen, Johnny Craig, John Romita Jr. Anyway, I would recommend people start with one of the other stories as their first Judge Dredd tale.

The art is black and white but very well detailed even if the sequential art is a tad focused on the "joke" at the end of each strip. Entiendo que la decisión es deliberada, para transmitir una sensación de caos y suciedad, pero he leído cómics de Dredd de otras épocas que consegu��an lo mismo con un dibujo más limpio.

There is something about trying to read dialogue and thought bubbles while looking at pictures at the same time that is just distracting. The longer stories (the robot war and Dredd as Moon Marshall) were OK - but there were quite a lot od progs that were quite boring IMO.

Rico’s episode is surprisingly frittered away - no build up and none of the repercussions that his death will bring are immediately felt here. The original Judge Dredd Case Files go back to the 1970s in the early days of the satirical authoritarian protagonist who works in New York City and later Mega City One. Featuring the writing talents of comic legends Pat Mills (Slaine) and John Wagner (A History of Violence), this volume also features the art of Ian Gibson (The Ballad of Halo Jones), Dave Gibbons (Watchmen) and Brian Bolland (Batman: The Killing Joke) amongst many other artists. Great fun, well written and superbly illustrated, well presented and thoroughly iconic, I very highly recommend this.

Walter The Wobot, the whole Luna 1 run, war (with four combatants) and Elvis the killer car while the book also includes the first Dredd story and a run of Walter one-page adventures. We also get an introduction to evolved monkeys and mutants which give us a taster of this world and the satire which makes it so diesel. M. DeMatteis, Bob Hall, Alan Zelenetz, Jack Kirby, Don Heck, Dick Ayers, John Buscema, George Tuska, Werner Roth, Gene Colan, Sal Buscema, Barry Windsor-Smith, Frank Giacoia, Howard Purcell, Neal Adams, Bob Brown, Rich Buckler, Dave Cockrum, M.
