To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Dredd's third decade was consistently excellent, though rarely did it reach the same heights as the glory days of the comic's first decade. Such is the case in volume 27. It's still good, it's just not as good. Stories focusing on characters other than Dredd are becoming more common. I get why they are doing this - they want to keep the series fresh and relevant - but Dredd is what makes this series consistently great. He's a constantly interesting character simply because he's so tongue in cheek. Still, supporting characters are often interesting and fun to read about. The series is often very funny, especially when it serves as social satire. The writing is still solid, and the animation is wonderful. Dredd still retains his darkly humorous side. If you're new to Dredd, don't start with this volume. Go to Volume 5. You won't get to know him quickly if you begin reading his later years.
Say what you will, this series has stayed damned interesting over the years.
