5.0 out of 5 stars Necropolisssssss 21 Oct 2009
By Sam Woodward TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Dredd has completely lost faith in Justice Department, so retires & takes the Long Walk into the Cursed Earth. But once he's out of the way, nothing can stop Judge Death from taking over Mega City One. Turning it into a city of the dead, he & his companions gain psychic control over the remaining Judges & go about slaughtering its 400 million citizens - mostly by hand, one at a time. When Dredd hears about this, he simply has to go back & teams up with some incredibly unlikely allies along the way. But despite their help, can even he turn the tide against such overwhelming odds?

(incidentally, this may sound like a spoiler but we are told virtually all of this in the first 3 pages & on the back cover)

Volume 14 contains all 37 of the 2000AD 'progs' which cover the Countdown To Necropolis & the main Necropolis storyline in its entirety. As ever, the Dark Judges' dialogue looks as though Wagner has nodded off at his keyboard & has accidentally held down his 's' key but even so, Necropolis is satisfying on a number of levels - there's insight into Dredd's character & the extent of his iconic status to the people & his fellow Judges. There's inevitably a plentiful helping of action, a dark storyline & some simply stunning Ezquerra painted art. The last few volumes have shown that most artists didn't cope particularly well when the strip first moved to full colour but Ezquerra has gone from strength to strength, using oils & other painting techniques for some of the incredibly rendered flash pages. Will Simpson & Jeff Anderson do an okay job on the opening chapters but about 80% of this volume is Ezquerra at his best.

With Wagner & Ezquerra both on top form, Necropolis is one of my all-time favourite epic Dredd storylines.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Now that's what I call overkill!" 28 Oct 2010
By G. Meldrum VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Over the many years in which `Judge Dredd' has been running in 2000AD, there have been equally many great stories published, but for my money, there has never been anything to top `Necropolis', and it is `Necropolis' and the build up to it (the first lengthy story, which shall here remain nameless to prevent spoilers, and `Countdown to Necropolis') that Casefiles 14 covers. Rivalled only by the Apocalypse War in terms of scale, Necropolis sees Mega-City One fall to the Dark Judges, and fall hard. Not only are the monstrous psi-powers of the Sisters of Death focused on the MC-1 judiciary, but on the streets, not four but FIVE undead lawmen stalk - Fire, Fear, Mortis, Death... and their newest `brother', who weeps as he kills. Meanwhile, a ragtag duo of ex-judges return from the Cursed Earth to make a last desperate stand, but what help can they hope to receive against the greatest threat Dredd's home has ever faced?

Combining threads dating all the way back to `Judge Death Lives' and `A Question of Judgement', and encompassing other plot elements from `Revolution', `Oz', and `Young Giant', `Necropolis' serves as the culmination for a whole host of the strip's key themes, and is regarded by some as defining the end of an era. On every single level, John Wagner's master-story delivers. You want horror? The section where Judge Mortis pursues a group of hapless cadets through the crumbling city is one of the most spine-chilling sequences ever published in 2000AD. You want character development? The first story in this volume provides one of the most in-depth insights into Joe Dredd's psyche you're likely to receive, and leaves him forever changed. You want plot twists, unexpected returns and iconic moments that'll indelibly etch themselves into your mind? They're all here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Dredd. 5 Dec 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had stopped reading 2000ad by the time this classic epic 'necropolis' was printed but had heard rumours of the pretender Kracken. I was blown away by the story line and a welcome return for Carlos. My only issue is I wanted more of the four dark judges.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Dredd - and an epic read! 18 Jun 2012
Format:Paperback
I've been a fan of Judge Dredd since I was a boy of 10. After a long absence from the 2000AD readership, I finally got around to picking up a handful of these superb 'Case Files' format collections.

I have to say, I struggle with some of the older Dredd material from the black-and-white days. But with this volume, which contains the epic 'Necropolis' arc, there's a real sense of a fully fledged, well written - dare I say it? - MODERN comic.

I'm not usually a fan of supernatural or fantasy-based stories, but this arc, which leans heavily towards the former, is propulsive stuff. Carlos Ezquerra draws the entirety of the main story arc, and it's a real page turner, loaded with atmosphere.

Absolutely great stuff. Be sure to buy it along with the standalone graphic novel 'The Dead Man', too, and read that first. The link between the two is seamless.

Highly satisfying!

5.0 out of 5 stars A stunning epic of Dredd and Death escapades! 2 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was well written and featured good artwork from Carlos Ezquerra. The script by John Wagner was good as well. It proved to be a fine epic ranked with all the other Dredd epics like Apocalypse War and Judge Child. Well done to the they!
