About the author
Top reviews from the United States

This book is recommended for those wishing to escape the stereotype of hero comics that other companies push us, Dredd stories are imaginative and have the freedom to show us stories ranging from common criminals ("Judge" Whitey) until recreated dinosaurs to live in parks (Satanus), all with a political vision of society.

Don't be put off by the story's length because if you don't like one instalment there will be segment coming up a few pages later that might appeal to you more. Some reviewers have criticised the story as being nothing more than a series of set pieces loosely linked in an incoherent plot. Maybe but this sense of scope should be seen as a strength rather than a weakness. One week you've got Dredd getting involved in breaking up the slave trade in the Cursed Earth , then he's held hostage in a theocracy based on ancient Egypt then he's travelling outside the solar system on a spaceship with a homicidal computer obviously influenced by Hal from 2001
Apart from spotting obvious influences Judge Dredd from this era seems to have influenced Ed Neumeier and Paul Verhoeven . With the Battleground segment we're introduced to satires on media and brilliantly lampooned advert breaks that resemble those seen in the Robocop movies , Total Recall and Starship Troopers so much so you can't help thinking it's not coincidence. After all we all know what comic strip pre-dated Officer Murphy's catchphrases of "Dead or alive you're coming with me" and "Your move creep"
After The Judge Child epic ends we get a very strong run of short stories some of which tie in with later events one of which Pirates Of The Black Atlantic also ties in with The Apocalypse War in case files 5 . Apart from the strong storytelling we also get outstanding artwork from a range of artists namely Brian Bolland , Ron Smith , Mike McMahon , Ian Gibson. Steve Dillon and Brett Ewins all of who contribute career best artwork for the strip
If there's a downside it's that The Judge Child suddenly comes to stop which is rather anti-climatic. There's also an ugly black stripe down the middle of two page spreads which might be a formatting problem which stopped this case file getting five out of five but this case file continues the strong and consistent visuals and narrative that made 2000AD in general and Judge Dredd in particular British comic legends. Compare this volume with case files 1 to see how far and how quickly the strip evolved
Warning: Judge Lopez has facial hair. :)
