Comic Book Review – Judge Dredd Classics: The Dark Judges #1

22 January 2015 12:51 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Andrew Newton reviews Judge Dredd Classics: The Dark Judges #1…

His name is Judge Death and in his eyes all life is crime! Together with his brothers Fear, Fire, and Mortis, the super-fiend from Deadworld is determined to end all life in Mega-City One once and for all! This compilation features classic Judge Death tales from the pages of 2000 Ad, including his stunning debut story by co-creators John Wagner and Brian Bolland.

There is no Dredd villain more perfect, more extreme and more disturbing than Judge Death.  Under the firm belief that all life is a crime and the sentence is death there is no doubt he is as committed to his duty as Dredd is.  However, despite his job dedication, he is the complete opposite to Dredd.

Judge Dredd Classics: The Dark Judges #1 by co-creators John Wagner and Brian Bolland brings us Judge Death’s very first appearance in the »

Comic Book Review – Judge Dredd: The Mega Collection – America

21 January 2015 1:45 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Villordsutch reviews Judge Dredd: The Mega Collection – America…

In Mega-City One, the Judges are the law – acting as judge, jury, and executioner. But how do the citizens really feel about a system where they are powerless? America Jara and Bennett Beeny grow up as best friends, living a fairly trouble-free life in a dangerous city… bar the odd encounter with a Judge. Time draws them apart, and when they are brought back together, Beeny is a successful singer and America has become involved with a terrorist organisation – with the Judges in its sights! Written by John Wagner (A History of Violence) with art by Colin MacNeil (Judge Dredd) this dark and complex tale is regularly cited as the greatest Judge Dredd story ever written!

This really is a no-brainer here!  I’ll be fairly open – if you’ve wanted to start entering the universe of 2000Ad then this is your first step. »

Comic Book Review – 2000Ad Prog 1914

21 January 2015 5:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oliver Davis reviews 2000Ad Prog 1914…

Borag Thungg, Earthlets! There are exploding heads, possessed heads and robot heads in this week’s issue. But first…

John Wagner’s Judge Dredd storyline ‘Dark Justice’ is now in full, gruesome flow. The Dark Judges have been awakened aboard the Mayflower (a spaceship colony shepherding Mega City One’s rich and famous to a better planet) and are proceeding to wreak havoc, deck by deck. In anyone else’s hands, Judge Death and his comrades would be a tedious collection of second-tier, one-dimensional villains. They have no backstory, nor any human conflict within their rotted hearts. They are simply out to kill. But then what is Dredd if not an uncomprimising force for justice? They say the best antagonists encapture the flaws of the hero. Wagner subverts one of Dredd’s greatest assets – unshakeable determination – into the ruthlessness of the Dark Judges.

Subversion is »

Comic Book Review – 2000Ad Prog 1912

Oliver Davis reviews 2000Ad Prog 1912…

Borag New Year, Earthlets! Does that work? My Tharg isn’t what it used to be.

John Wagner’s second episode of Judge Dredd strip ‘Dark Justice’ kicks off 2015, cheery as always. The majority of this episode takes place aboard the enormous, utopian spaceship that has taken Mega City One’s richest to live in intergalactic paradise. Initially narrated by the ship captain’s log, we slowly learn one of the Dark Judges is aboard. Dredd has similar troubles back on the terresterial plane: the rest of them are plotting Earth’s downfall. Greg Staples’ art is magnificent, particularly the scenes set in space. The station sailing past Saturn’s rings is stunning, recalling Douglas Trumbull’s excellent  Silent Running and the front covers of 70s science fiction novels.

Pat Mills goes back two decades further with his always-excellent, 5os-echoing Savage. The strip’s war-critical »
