More About the Author

John Wagner is, to many fans, the very heart of the renowned comic 2000 AD. Involved from the earliest days of the comic in 1977, he co-created Judge Dredd and Strontium Dog, as well as a whole cast of other memorable characters. Wagner has worked extensively beyond the Thargian universe, originating and editing a number of British periodicals as well as writing many American standards. His Paradox Press graphic novel A History of Violence was made into a major film from director David Cronenberg.

About the Author

John Wagner has been scripting for 2000 AD for more years than he cares to remember. His creations include Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog, Ace Trucking, Al's Baby, Button Man and Mean Machine. Outside of 2000 AD his credits include Star Wars, Lobo, The Punisher and the critically acclaimed A History of Violence. With over 300 2000 AD stories to his name - not to mention over 250 Daily Star Judge Dredd strips - Alan Grant's prolific creative record speaks for itself. Jeff Anderson has illustrated Judge Dredd, One-Offs and Tharg's Future Shocks for 2000 AD. Artist Mick Austin is perhaps better known for his acclaimed book jacket illustrations rather than for his comics work. However, in addition to assorted covers and pin-ups, he has contributed to several 2000 AD series. Jim Baikie is co-creator of Skizz. In addition Baikie has illustrated Cursitor Doom, Future Shocks and Judge Dredd. Dougie Braithwaite provided the art for the Judge Dredd strips 'Lockin' Up The House' and 'Confessions of a Rottweiler.' As co-creator of Judge Dredd Carlos Ezquerra designed the classic original costume as well as visually conceptualising Mega-City One. Mike Collins has illustrated American Gothic which he also co-created, Judge Dredd, Rogue Trooper Sinister Dexter, Slaine and has written and illustrated several Tharg's Future Shocks strips. John Higgins has illustrated Chopper, Freaks, One-Offs, Tharg the Mighty and Time Twisters. Cam Kennedy is another hugely popular 2000 AD artist, having illustrated many Judge Dredd strips and co-created luckless wannabe creator Kenny Who? and the Taxidermist.

By Sam Woodward TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Volume 13 almost reads like a mission statement of a grittier change of direction, as a couple of older characters are redefined with darker, more believable edges. In 'Cardboard City', for example, Dredd's former housekeeper & incredibly annoying 'comedy character' Maria returns as a homeless alcoholic. Similarly, Dredd discovers that his former colleague Giant has a son from an "extra-judicial liason", who is now a Cadet Judge with an attitude problem.

Meanwhile, having previously murdered his way through his family to get his hands on their fortune, teenager PJ Maybe is looking for more creative ways to handle his parents' business rivals, so as not to cause any more suspicion. But how far can he push his luck?

Also, Dredd's on the trail of a former foe in the hotbed of corruption that is Ciudad Barranquilla, aka 'Banana City'. And his younger clone is nearing completion of his training - which is a good job because the old man likes a nice, relaxing bath these days... But even that won't improve his disposition when a letter from a child asks him some difficult questions about the Justice system & the Democratic March - a letter which has a profound effect on Dredd.

Like the previous volume, Case Files # 13 contains several fun shorts combined with a little pre-Necropolis build-up. It's a thinner volume than most in this series but still contains a respectable 43 'progs', so its size may partly be due to the change in paperstock as much as anything. But volume 14 promises to be much thicker, as it contains the classic 'Necropolis' epic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Drok! Arrest the artists! 4 Oct 2009
By this point John Wagner was starting to get itchy feet with regards to Dredd, which resulted - as it starts to here - in much of the strip's trademark black humour taking a back seat as Dredd starts to turn into a dour old man bearing the grimness of the world on his shoulders. Dredd's ultra grim n gritty seriousness lasted for a few years before Wagner cheered up again and pretty much decided to ignore the fact Dredd's knocking on in years and get back to telling great stories.

That's not to say that there aren't some good stories in this volume, because there are, including the beginnings of Dredd questioning the system... but at the same time as Dredd took a downturn, 2000AD made the catastrophic decision that from now on all artwork was to be in colour. As this was pre-photoshop, the result was that 2000AD's pages were flooded with garish, slapdash, and often horrendous painted artwork as artists, often with no aptitude for working in colour, churned out work as quickly as possible in order to pay the bills. Most artists floundered (including some of the greats like Ezquera in this volume) and for every Simon Bizley there were hordes of others floundering along with Ezquera.

Fortunately Photoshop eventually appeared on the scene, the artwork drastically improved, Wagner got it all out of his system and Rebellion revitalised 2000AD... but all this is unfortunately a few volumes down the line. I'll still be buying them all obviously, but as Necropolis is looming on the horizon (not in this volume thank god) and it's just about my least favourite Dredd story of all time I'll just have to grit my teeth. Never mind, it all sorts itself out in the end!

4.0 out of 5 stars A thrilling set of adventures for Judge Dredd 26 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was entertaining to read and featured some nice artwork. Some stories were funny and caused few chuckles to be emitted. The book leads nicely into Complete Case File 14.
