Mike Gold: The Cursed Earth Is Whole Again!

13 July 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | | See recent Comicmix news »

Judge Dredd: The Cursed Earth Uncensored • Writers: Pat Mills, John Wagner, Chris Lowder • Artists: Brian Bolland, Mick McMahon • Rebellion A/S, $35.00 hardcover, $15.00 Kindle edition. 208 pages.

Almost 40 years ago, I was sitting in my office at DC Comics in Rockefeller Plaza creatively shirking my work when the mail room guy wheeled up to my desk and dropped off a package. It was from my friend Richard Burton, then a major comics fanzine editor in England. It contained the first three issues of a brand new weekly comic book titled 2000 Ad, along with a note from Richard noting he would be curious as to my opinion. Hey, free comics for a letter? Fine by me.

I proceeded to read this new anthology comic. Lucky for me, it is perfectly legitimate to read comics on the job when you’re working at a comic book publishing house. The first issue was great fun, »

Exclusive: Official Response From Producer About Status of 'Dredd 2'

24 June 2016 7:01 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

A few days ago, the internet was ablaze- well, at least the portion of the internet used by the small, rabid fan base of Dredd- with word that a certain sequel was in development. See, actor Karl Urban was speaking at Denver Comic Con, and he apparently made a few comments pertaining to Dredd 2 being in some stage of development. He said he would definitely come back for it if he felt the project had "depth and substance," according to website Science Fiction.

So reports began to spring up like wildfire, as they tend to do, because the few people that saw Dredd loved it. It didn't do so hot in wide release, but had stellar numbers once it was released for home distribution. Murmurs of a sequel have popped up before, and the latest chatter included the idea that it could come to a streaming service like Netflix- »

Karl Urban interview: Dredd, Dredd 2

11 May 2016 10:20 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




The Judge is in the house: Karl Urban chats to us about Judge Dredd, and where he stands on Dredd 2…

It’s been nearly four years now since Karl Urban kept his helmet on his head in the most recent screen take on 2000Ad’s Judge Dredd. You more than likely know what happened next, too. The film won over fans, crashed at the box office, and chances of a sequel diminished.

Diminished, but never died. And thanks to a fervent fan campaign, there remains hope of sending Karl Urban back to Mega City One. Here, Urban answers our questions about the past and future of Judge Dredd

Can you take us back to the start of the story. How did you land the role of Judge Dredd in the first place? Did you lobby for it?

The process of committing to Dredd was relatively simple. I read a tight, »

Comic Book Review – Judge Dredd: Dead Zone

Villordsutch reviews Judge Dredd: Dead Zone

While investigating a murder at the Chaos Day Memorial, Dredd comes across a slave ring in which people are being sent into the bowels of the earth to rob the bodies of the dead. Yodie Planchet is one such unfortunate being forced to undertake in this harrowing labour. But when he finds a strange bracelet that bestows great power to whoever wears it, he is able to rescue his pregnant sweetheart and escape to the ‘Big Meg’. However, an item this powerful is always being sought after, and it isn’t long before Yodie is being pursued by mysterious agents from the future!

Way back in July 2014 I was lucky enough to begin reading John Wagner’s Dead Zone with some seriously fantastic artwork with Henry Flint.  The story began in Judge Dredd Megazine Issue #350 and it won – over the next few months »
