5.0 out of 5 stars Wagner's swansong?, 13 July 2011

This review is from: Judge Dredd Tour of Duty: Mega-City Justice (Paperback)
This amazing volume follows straight on from Judge Dredd Tour of Duty: The Backlash & may be hard to follow if you haven't read that volume.

Newly elected Chief Judge Dan Francisco has repealed the unpopular mutie reforms that Hershey & Dredd pushed through. But instead of abandoning mutants completely, he surprises everyone by actually hitting on a good idea - separate Cursed Earth townships for mutants, protected by Mega City Judges. And now he's out of favour, Dredd is put in charge & carted off to the remote wasteland. Frustrated at this 'forced retirement', Dredd knows he will probably never see his precious streets again. Worse still, he's left them in the hands of lesser men, who plot to seize power from Francisco. Meanwhile, Mega City One's new leaders manage to annoy Mayor Ambrose - AKA serial killer PJ Maybe! And if anyone can murder a Chief Judge it's definitely Maybe!

This is an amazing story, combining the usual action & shady goings-on with plenty of insight into Dredd. It also ties up a lot of themes which have been running through the series for years. As such, I wondered if this was long-term writer & Dredd co-creator John Wagner tying up loose ends, ready for someone else to inherit his character. Certainly since the end of this story, the regular strip in 2000 AD has mainly been written by other writers.

If so, this is an incredible story to go out on. The excellent writing is well supported by some excellent artists - primarily Mike Collins with a smattering of Ezquerra. Both this & the previous volume are a highlight of Wagner's 30+ year tour of duty on this strip.

4.0 out of 5 stars GREAT quality, but... it's paperback, Amazon, not hardcover!!, 4 July 2011
This review is from: Judge Dredd Tour of Duty: Mega-City Justice (Paperback)
I fully agree with C. A. Poole from Wales: great volume, our ''old stony face'' Joe Dredd at a high point (for His age and Wagner's), competent drawing (even some Ezquerra art, at the very end), and a fine story, though not my favorite overall; IMHO it lacks a bit of character development of secondaries like Rico or Beeny, but Dredd's fine and we see again PJ Maybe-Mayor Ambrose, always a refreshing experience (if you survive it...).
In a nutshell, a very good volume for Dredd fans, though NOT for newbies (there's a lot of assumptions, you need to know some ''recent events'' of Dredd's universe)... but it's NOT hardcover, Amazon, it's a very good (glossy heavy paper) paperback edition!!

This has blown me away,the writing and art were terrific , and the storyline ( like the other story about the revolt of the Mutant immigration into Meg City One ) is just wonderful -- I know its a cliche , but i COULDN'T put this down

( I even stopped playing world of tanks till it was finished - which lets you know how absorbed i was of the story told inside )

5.0 out of 5 stars Dredd and Wagner just get better and better, 29 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Judge Dredd Tour of Duty: Mega-City Justice (Paperback)
I have read Judge Dredd and 2000ad since i was a nipper and this was such a joy to read and re-read.

I love how Dredd is incorruptable, steadfast, loyal and still able to kick arse.

John Wagner's writing is so enjoyable - i love how much the Judge Dredd stories have matured from early days.
