Alan Grant drags Anderson even deeper into the realms of philosophy and religion in this volume. Her hitherto discoveries about her past coupled with a recent changed perception of what `Justice' is have opened her consciousness to previously unexplored concerns affecting Mega City One. She begins to experience visions that lead her into the unknown. The iconography used will be familiar to everyone but the associations are Anderson specific.

There's some of Dredd in this one. It's interesting to see Old Stony in Anderson's world. It distances him a little from the typically masculine arena he usually embodies. Grant knows that Joe needs to present the appearance of a non-conformist with a controlling influence but there's also an almost parental guiding attitude present. He won't accept failure from Anderson but he's more than happy to step aside to let her prove herself, or team-up if the Law permits.

The two main artists are Arthur Ranson and Steve Sampson. If you've bought the previous volumes in the series you'll already be familiar with Ranson's superb work. Steve Sampson on the other hand has a radically different style. His use of thick, bright colours contrasts with Ranson's more subdued, realistic palette but it works beautifully. Sampson's portrayal highlights a different side of Cassandra. She has a glow about her, as if her emotions are shining out from within like a beacon or a redeeming light. His panelling is equally vibrant when necessary; the more space he allows himself the more impressive his final product.

As usual there's some random one-shots from annuals and yearbooks to close the book that neither match up to the main stories in terms of quality or continuity.

Anderson has always had some good stories, and the first one in this book is another good tale. It also features Dredd as a bonus although he's in the background (as much as Dredd can be!) and it's interesting seeing the different dynamic. The tale centres around a mythical figure who comes back to the Meg and the Judges have to deal with it. Interesting read with a bit of a weak ending but well written and drawn.

The other stories in PSI files 3 are okay but not as good as the first one. The art is hit and miss but it's in full colour (but not the best job).

I'm a fan and would have bought this regardless, but I'd only recommend if you already like the world of the Judges and PSI division.

I've been a 2000ad fan for many a moon. Recently started rebuilding my collection and this is a fine tome.

There isn't really too much more to say... chances are if you found your way to this book you're already a fan of 2000ad, and if you are... buy it!

If you've no idea of what Judge Anderson is all about, far be it from me to tell you what you can and can't do, but my humble suggestion would be to to...perhaps... start at the very beginning for, as the song says, it's a very good place to start!

Volume 2 had its choppy moments, so it's good to see the quality ramp back up for this volume. As good, if not better than the early stories, great stuff.

FOLLOWING the disappointment of the psi files vol 2 i found this to be a vast improvement, though the story crusade is endless and somewhat crap. I believe the writer was so bored of the character by then that he put her on ice for 5 years.

Color versions of Judge Anderson, sounds intriguing, right? But coloring is done badly and drawing is not even close to the B/W versions of earlier episodes. Also some of the stories are lame. This is not even close to as good as JA01, sadly.
