This review is from: The Batman/Judge Dredd Collection (2000 Ad) (Hardcover)
Although I have very often enjoyed Batman's tales, I've also always found him to be something of an annoying, arrogant know-it-all. Similarly, while a fan of Dredd's, he is undeniably a fascist bully. The dichotomy of the characters is part of what makes them so endearing, and has for decades.
These stories pit two tough, uncompromising characters against each other and have to give them something even tougher to overcome. They succeed admirably.
Bisley's art never lets one down and some of his finest efforts can be seen here, capturing both Gotham City and Mega-City One beautifully. Wagner and Grant's scripts similarly play to the strengths of both characters, maintaining their core selves while being thrust into situations which are - very rarely for them - too much for them individually.
A very nice hardback with some great material inside. Well worth splashing out a few creds on if you have them to spare.
