He is the Law!!!

This is the first volume in a series of 3 tomes collecting a selection of stories of “Judge Dredd” taken from its different kind of publications by 2000AD. They are taken from its “classic” era as well from more modern times. And they are presented using color only if the original publication had it.

The general rating is an average sum of the ratings given to each story contained in this book.

All about the art: all the beautiful Brits have done a Dredd or two (or 200...), & the Masters series highlights the evolution of the style of today's icons rather brilliantly. In doing so, however, some of the VERY WORST writing is showcased, & complete story arcs are completely overlooked. Not a good intro to the written character for fans of the new film, but a great discussion piece for fanfolk who yell things like "LOOK AT THAT EARLY STEVE DILLON JAWLINE!".

I'm not sure if the authors knew how good an idea this was (is). MegaCity 1 and Megacity 2 separated by a desert full of mutants? It's America, as seen by someone whose never been there. Judge Dread, the top man of the elite judges, dispenses justice on the spot, being both Judge, Jury and Cop.
The judge himself is rather nebulous as a character; really it's the unfortunate population of the cities that are the stars, always into some new fad that threatens to go kablooey. It's a comedy of hyperb

Recommends it for: old school gritty comic fans
Recommended to Vicki-shawn by: intuition
A fantastic collection of stories and artists from multiple points in the comics life. I have never been a huge fan short stories (which this book mainly contains) But my love for the world of Dredd made that a non issue. This is an awesome book that I am proud to have in my collection. It's not my favorite but it is nonetheless kick-ass.

Mostly reprints of much older material that I'd read already. Nothing outstanding, but I appreciate the quality of the printing job since many of these works never received the high quality printing treatment they deserved.
