Book Description

Mega-City One, 2100. This post-apocalyptic city of the future is blighted by overcrowding, poverty and misery. With each of the 400 million citizens a potential criminal, order is maintained by future lawmen known as the Judges who have the power to act as judge, jury and executioner. Toughest of them all is Judge Dredd – he is the law!
A deadly plague developed during the brutal 'Great Germ War' has reached the futuristic metropolis of Mega-City Two, located on the West Coast of the USA. Charged with delivering a life-saving vaccine to the citizens of the disease-ridden city, Judge Dredd and a small crew of Judges, war droids and the lawbreaking biker, Spikes Harvey Rotten, must travel a thousand miles across the radioactive wasteland known as 'the Cursed Earth.'
It is a near-impossible journey – hate-filled mutants, rampaging monsters and crazed war robots populate the hellish stretch of terrain. Many men have attempted to cross it and most have failed. But Judges are more than normal men and Judge Dredd is the best Judge there is!
These stories also feature in Judge Dredd The Complete Case Files 02.

3.0 out of 5 stars the cursed retina saga 9 Feb. 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a die hard dredd fan i'm always keen on a new release even one thats been released a few times...the cursed earth is one of the classic sagas that ran in 2000ad along with the likes of "judge child","the day the law died" and the apocalypse war ...repackaged in a smaller manga size format presumably to draw people from weird japanese stuff to some home grown greatness,me, i got it so i had a grat read in an easy to carry format...

unfortunately, it doesnt seem to translate well to this size as it is too small the text is tiny which can be a problem to the older generation who dont want to admit they might need glasses (ahem!) but the art as well loses a lot of it's impact ,comparing the first episode to the one printed in "the best of judge dredd" you notice it is at least half the size!
personally i would have thought some of the older daily star strips or the more recent "metro" ones would have been more able to cope with the smaller size the metro ones in particular as the art is more "modern" and the artists had a "mangaesque" quality to them and the six pnel format would have fit on the page better without giving me eyestrain ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Does it work on a Kindle? 18 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read these the first time around (must be about 35 years ago!) and wanted to read them again on on a handheld device. I had tried the odd scanned download but was left disapointed. I saw this kindle version and decided to give it a try. I have got a kindle paperwhite and the kindle app on an ipad (gen 1). The kindle method of letting you double tap to zoom in on a panel and then swipe to move to the next panel works very well and feels very natural. However the kindle paperwhite is much too small to be able to read a lot of the text and I think amazon should make it clear that these comic formats are not suitable for a kindle paperwhite. I then tried the comic on my ipad kindle and it was great, I had no problems reading the text and it was a great reading experience.

In summary, do not try and read this on a kindle tpaperwhite as the accessibility is poor, but it works well on an Ipad kindle app. I haven't got a kindle fire so I cannot comment on that experience.

It also looks like there is a bug in the kindle paperwhite reader as the panels on the first page appear as small black rectangles when you zoom in on them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dredds Incredible Journey 1 Dec. 2012
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
I love spending the time with my head wrapped up in a graphic novel and when I have time to return to the cursed earth travelling the road with MegaCity One's hardest judge then you know its something that I'm going to do.

What occurs within this title is the full Cursed Earth Saga that really brings all of the flavour of this epic tale to the reader, with artwork that brings the heavy action to the fore as Dredd sets out to save Mega City 2. Whilst I have loved spending my time with this book, one criticism that I do have is that for me the writing is too small to keep reading for any length of time, so when you do make sure you have a bright light and a set of glasses to help you out.

3.0 out of 5 stars Already a big Dredd Fan, but ...... 28 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Was already a big Dredd/2000AD fan, but had always brought the "proper" graphic novels - even though I have had kindles and Tablets that would run the Kindle app for a number of years.

However, in the last month or so I have taken the plunge and downloaded this, and two other Graphic Novels direct to the Kindle to see what the experiance was like.

I have to say I was a little disappointed - but this is with the way the Kindle Displays the book, and not with the book its self. The Kindle systems seems a little clumsy to me. It works (sort of) but it isnt very elegant.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just Can't see it on Kindle PaperWhite.... 11 Oct. 2013
By argo56
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Loved Judge Dredd for many years, was looking forward to re-reading this on my Kindle PW, just can't read it without constantly zooming all over the pages, then trying to turn a page over requires you to re-zoom to original unreadable size. Literally gave up after one page.
Maybe it's designed for the Fire, in any case really disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great little product, but... 22 Jun. 2012
Format:Paperback
I'm a big Dredd fan, and this dinky little digest was just the ticket for a quick fix of the Lawman. I've not had any issues with its readability, as it's all quite legible and discernible on the page. It's also quite neat to see Pat Mills writing the majority of this story, with a little support from Dredd's co-creator John Wagner. The writing, while dated, is choc full of Mills' exuberant sense of fun.

HOWEVER - you can get this and the following arc 'The Day The Law Died' together in one volume of the 'Case Files' collected editions, which, with their larger format, may be a preferred way to pick the stories up. I really hope the Case File editions don't suddenly disappear now that these smaller books are being put out, as they're a better way to enjoy Dredd's adventures, in my opinion.

2.0 out of 5 stars Doesnt really work on the kindle. 12 Oct. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The content is awesome. Judge Dredd does his stuff in the cursed earth.However its not really readable on the kindle as the pictures are too small and the details not really fine enough. Shame as it would have been reasonable value.
