5.0 out of 5 stars Meet the Angel Gang!, 14 Oct 2003
The early Dredd epics from 2000AD are the very best in comic book fiction. It's that simple. I have yet to see anybody in the genre that can match the wierd and wonderful imagination of John Wagner's scripts and the crispness of Brian Bolland's artwork (except Carlos Ezquerra, of course), and the later efforts by newer artists just don't the grade when compared to these supremos. And this volume is a genuine pleasure to read!
Mega City One's Psi-Division has issued a terrible prophecy - that the fate of millions depends upon the actions of one child, bearing the birth mark of an eagle upon his forehead, who will have incredible powers of prescience. The Judges soon locate such a child, and Dredd is ordered to bring him in, but is too late to stop slavers from bearing the Judge Child away to another planet. Fearing for the worst, Dredd is sent with a small team in Justice One (one of the Judges' spacecraft) to rescue the Child at all costs, and this volume follows the team's efforts to complete this impossible mission.
This epic adventure introduces some important characters for Dredd's universe; more notably Judge Hershey's first appearance (a very strong female lead, only rivalled by Anderson and DeMarco in later stories). But best of all you get to meet the Angel Gang, including Pa, Link, Mean and Junior Angel, probably the most popular villains ever to (dis)grace the pages of 2000AD, to the point that the "black sheep" later appears in his own story and Mean Machine gets brought back repeatedly as one of Dredd's greatest recurring enemies.
Final verdict: Five stars (well deserved, for "Jigsaw Disease" alone!). This particular release is a lovely hardcover edition, and should be treasured as one of the best comic releases of the age; if you are seriously devoted to comics or graphic novels you should get a copy, it's a real and geniune pleasure to own.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice, 30 Nov 2003
I love comics - especially Judge Dredd. They're all great - and this is no exception. It's very well made - and it only loses a star because it's not in colour and it's hard back (I like to grip my comics). Yet it's still worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm really disapointed..., 30 Nov 2003
I was really disapointed - with the front cover! But rest assured that this is one of the greatest games... ever. It is just so brilliant - it rivals Metroid Prime and sweeps the floor with HALO - and why? I love both those games (HALO & METROID) they're fantastic. But this is just such a good game - the videos are wonderful, the city detailed and the world around you clean. It's great. REVIEW OVER.
