Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When I first read the synopsis of this story, it seemed so inconceivable, I just couldn't wait to get my hands on it!

Mutants have never been welcome in Mega City One, as the normal humans want to keep their bloodlines pure & protect their species. Mutations are weeded out & left in the radioactive Cursed Earth outside the citys' well-protected walls, no doubt inspired by the real-life USA-Mexico border. But his encounter with the Fargos in Origins has made Dredd rethink the whole mutie issue - one which he's never really given much thought to before. Knowing it'll be an incredibly unpopular move, he nevertheless forwards a motion to the Council Of Five to legalise mutants - and after a few setbacks, surprisingly gets it passed. But with the majority of the citizens & his fellow Judges against the idea, riots & suspicion give rise to more shocking events.

Much of this volume - which is a lot thicker than the other Rebellion reprints - consists of different stories which connect to the mutant issue in different ways. It was fun trying to figure out how some of the tales fitted it - what could muties possibly have to do with a Judge whose helmet-cam makes 'The Streets Of Dan Francisco' the latest 24-7 live, rolling reality vidcast phenomenon, as his dispensing justice is televised for all? We also see Dredd throwing himself headfirst into the action, fearing that if he isn't killed on the street he'll suffer the worse fate of being put out to pasture, while simultaneously politicking to get his bill passed (and hating every minute of it).

Format: Paperback
Recently all stories to do with 2000AD's Judge Dredd line up have been convincingly impressive.

One thing that makes this a must for any dredd-head is the wealth of history that this storey draws on, I don't want to give anything away but many characters from the past make a re-appearance.

Plot

Dredd now older in his early fifties ever since the events of the origins storey arch is beginning to question some of the harsher laws of mega-city one such as the cities treatment of mutants. This puts him at odds with most other Judges and a good percentage of the "normal" citizens of the Mig Meg. This storey is about how old stone face decision to make a stand against a law he knows to be wrong will effect him and those around him.

This is simply a must buy for any Judge dredd fan and I am eager for the Next Graphic Novel to continue on from Backlash to the Cursed Earth.

If you like Dredd novels, buy this comic. If you like comics, buy this Dredd novel. A brilliant step forward in the Dredd continuum and one that sees the arch-fascist Dredd step slightly closer to more reasonable, palatable politics.

Now that 2000AD aims at an older audience Dredd has had to go through some changes from his two-dimensional, Harry Callahan, anti-hero inception. Read this and see some of those changes in action. Better still, see the consequences of those changes as they unfold in a dystopian world where several million people live packed into an urban nightmare, where crime and boredom are rife, the police can shoot you on sight for committing a crime, and almost every citizen feels like a Daily Mail reader with an assault rifle.

Tour Of Duty foucs's heavily on the politics within Mega City one meaning more talking but less engaging action if I was honest. There seems to be a lack of continuity between one story and another and so for that reason does feel a tab bit dis jointed
