After all the hype I was expecting something fairly decent, especially given the ongoing Dredd sequel campaign. Underbelly fails to live up to the film and is a sorely missed opportunity. The art work is good and captures the atmosphere and aesthetic of the film, though I felt incorporating the comic Dredd's features into the new design was a little jarring but I'm not sure why (maybe because Anderson is drawn with features so similar to Olivia Thirlby). The comic is very and flimsy in construction but of high quality paper. However the below average story is the real let down, and I'm being generous when I say it's average. Given the high standard of some of the Dredd stories over the years there is really no excuse for publishing such a lack lustre story as the follow up to the film.Style over substance. Buy if you must but you'd be better off spending your money on some of the issues from the original Dredd canon.
