Book Description

15 Sep 2006 Judge Dredd
Every so often in Mega City One, a child prodigy comes to light. But Philip Janet Maybe's talent ain't for nothing healthy, like the synth-violin, or skysurfing, or ingesting inanimate objects. PJ's talent is murder.

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.


Product Description

About the Author

John Wagner co-created Judge Dredd, as well as Strontium Dog, Robo-Hunter and a host of other 2000 AD mainstays; the only writer to even come close to John Wagner's astonishing 2000 AD record is his long-term writing partner Alan Grant. With over 300 2000 AD stories to his name Grant's prolific creative record speaks for itself; Garth Ennis is one of 2000 AD's most successful exports. Since his debut writing his co-created crazed romp Time Flies, he has imprinted his trademark sense of human drama and humour on his other creations; Liam McCormack-Sharp is the co-creator of recurring, pint-sized Judge Dredd villain P.J. Maybe; Anthony Williams is the co-creator of both Babe Race 2000 and Kola Kommandoes; Peter Doherty is primarily known as the artist of the Young Death series; Ben Oliver illustrated two PJ Maybe stories for 2000 AD; Chris Weston is the co-creator of Canon Fodder, and has pencilled a vast array of 2000 AD and Megazine stories; Carlos Ezquerra co-created Judge Dredd and designed the classic original costume as well as visually conceptualising Mega-City One.

I was about the same age as Philip Janet Maybe (his parents wanted a girl) when at the age of 12, he committed his first murders in the atmospheric one-prog thriller 'Bug'. I remember at the time being shocked that a mere juve had killed 2 'dults & a vulture & then got away with it, right under Dredd's chin! But there was more to come, with this merely being a practise run. The real target were his mother's family, billionaire owners of wealthy trouser company Emphatically Yess who turned their noses up at their poor in-laws ("you'll never make a Yess, Maybe. I think the most we can hope for is a probably"). Of course, with related billionaires dropping like flies, it wasn't long before Dredd took an interest & he & the cunning PJ ended up in a game of cat & mouse which lasted 2 decades. Sometimes PJ would be caught but would always escape & be unable to resist his urge to murder again...

PJ is a marvellous creation, the Mega City equivalent of Patricia Highsmith's charming, intelligent psychopath, The Talented Mr. Ripley. As the stories in this volume cover a period of roughly 20 years, we see PJ develop from a teenager to man, refining his techniques & killing in increasingly imaginative, darkly humorous ways, for fun & money. He is by far the most well-rounded & exciting Dredd villain, with none of the limitations of, say, Mean Angel (ultimately just a violent redneck) or Judge Death (turned a bit camp later on, as Wagner no longer seemed to be able to take him seriously).

This is one of my favourite dredd stories (alongside the judge child quest, cursed earth and the apocalypse war). It follows p.j maybe whose family work (unsuccessfully) in clothes. He goes on to become a huge thorn in the justice departments side as he murders his way to wealth and power. He employs all the methods possible in mega city one to both kill and live undetected with huge aplomb. This is something 2000 ad does really well, giving you an insight into every day life and technology in the future. As a fan used to seeing Dredd crush villains effortlessly I enjoyed seeing him being outsmarted as P.J. Maybe grows from youth to man. Heartily recommended
