Events in Oz have left Dredd questioning his own judgement - but he will needs his wits about him, as a deadly hitman has Mega-City One's greatest lawman in his sights...

Meanwhile, in 'Full Mental Jacket' a Mega City family is torn apart when a juve is immersed deeper & deeper in gang culture. Judge Barry Kurten is driven to dish out excessive punishments by a little blue man who lives in his head. A Mega City sleeper android has gone on the rampage in Nip Cit (can you tell it was written in less PC times?) but can Dredd get to it before his Japanese equivalent, Sadu? And on home turf, Dredd discovers the Chief Judge is grooming his replacement - one with a questionable past. And a certain teenager by the name of PJ Maybe is literally getting away with murder...

Wagner & Grant usually wrote together under the pseudonym 'TB Grover' but interestingly, most of the short stories in this collection are written by one or the other. It's an interesting contrast, as Grant's tales tend to be be more light-hearted & whimsical but I prefer Wagner's more thought-provoking themes & dark humour. Dredd was Wagner's baby, after all. Be that as it may, it gives this collection a lot of variety, covering action, tragedy, drama, social commentary & outright comedy. Not many of these stories are really classics & there are no epic storylines here but it's always nice to see PJ Maybe & seeds are sown which ripen into Necropolis in volume 14. As such, it's still an essential part of any Dredd collection.

Top cop judge jury and executioner every perps. Worst nightmare and a thorn to his own leadership at times still going. After 40 years this volume
Differs because the book starts to have coloured stories about half way through fully and this I believes. Follows on the volumes after this one which ar fully coloured strangely. Enough the first page of each story is in colour but the following pages are. In b/w odd

This book was well scripted and drawn out. Unfortunately there were no mega epics but the short stories proved to be entertaining. Alan Grant 's stories were of a good quality alongside John Wagner's usual efforts. It was really great to see the stories in full colour and worth the price too.

The stories themselves are mentioned by other commenters, so I won't touch on them - the two things I would mention (about the kindle version specifically) is that firstly it is great to finally see some colour spreads at last, and secondly that two-page spreads are not optimised AT ALL for tablet reading. Panel hopping will not switch to the second page when it needs to, but rather moves vertically down its own side as it would on a single page, thus temporarily cutting the story in two. The scans also miss a good centimetre at least from the centre margin. These are not major complaints, but certainly interfere with immersion. It's also just a poor showing for a medium which lends itself so well to new technology. Should do better!

It's a graphic novel and the pictures don't fit the screen properly so it makes it very difficult to read. I'm sure the content is great, but it's not easy to access!

He loves it. Even if you're not a Judge Dredd fan, the quality of the paper and the print is excellent and something to collect.

Having read this stuff when I was a kid, i have bought this for my son and he thinks it is fabulous. When I read it again, one can see how groundbreaking it was at the time
