Judge Dredd: Trifecta
Judge Dredd: Trifecta
by Al Ewing
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £16.58

5.0 out of 5 stars 3 into 1 does go., 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Judge Dredd: Trifecta (Hardcover)
I have only recently re-discovered 2000ad and Old Joe after being a huge collector in my teens. So I missed the original run - must have been very coolto read the 3 stories and see them eventually link into one arc.Great art work - which is only to be expected.

With the current Comic Book TV revival - this would make an awesome series.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great taster for what I hope will be a great album, 23 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
SoH have been teasing the album for a while, and Radio 2 have been playing another track recently. This track absolutely sums up what it's all about.

An accessible modern version of an old song

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic story, great British production, 16 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well, as always Mr Gaiman gives us a fantastic (and fantastical) story. The British production standards, cheap budget "let's film it right here" just adds to the retro brilliance. A true product of it's time, but with a timeless feel.

2.0 out of 5 stars That difficult follow-up, 23 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The first book was a great debut, promising a career that would improve. However, the writing on this 2nd outing is back to "above amatuer", but not quite professional.

The 1st book I read in a few nights, this one is struggling to keep my attention. But, having said that, the premise is great, and with more experience I really hope Mr Ayers keeps going.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Modern Classic, 23 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So much emotion in these electronic tracks. Hints of Jean-Michel Jarre,Chic (obviously), and many others.

Georgio by Moroder is my stand out track. Haven't heard a track that made me smile, tap the steering wheel so hard and just feel elated like this makes me feel for many years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Radio, 2 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Our old analogue radio struggled to get a signal in the kitchen, and changing stations from my favourite to the wife's was a pain.
This Roberts radio gets a brilliantly strong signal, and having the 5 favourite buttons is so easy to use.

Definitely recommend - in fact I brought my 93 year old grandmother one!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent basic Electric knife, 5 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The wife hinted for ages she wanted one, and my sunday roasts were cut into chunks, so this made an ideal present.

Light wieght, so easy to hold and direct, but not the strongest of motors so cutting frozen stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chill out with History, 5 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The War Room (MP3 Download)
Similar to LemonJelly, great beats over laid with WW2 film soundtracks.

Perhaps the next album will be Cold War soundtracks?

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, and is great price., 5 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Why are these called sensor bars when in reality it's just a couple of IR LED's? A quick Google or youtube search shows that 2 candles would do the same job.

So this does a great job at a fraction of the price Nintendo charge.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining Modern Cops meet Spooks (and NOT the MI5 ones), 5 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Whilst firmly in the same vein as Aaronovitch's "Rivers Of London/P.C.Grant" books, this has a much grittier, Sweeny type feel.

There is more emphasis on the procedural than the supernatural. And all the good for it.

Strangely, although the book is firmly tied to London (plot spoiler hidden in that remark), it doesn't read or lock you into the minutiea in the same way Aaronovitch does.

I recommend.
