This review is from: Judge Dredd #1: Dredd vs. Death! (Kindle Edition)
Being a regular droid over at 200AD and the Judge Dredd Megazine, I was interested to see how Gordon Rennie would do with the written word only. With Dredd vs. Death, this first entry in the Judge Dredd novel series, Rennie excels; his prose does a fine job in bringing Mega City One, and its colourful characters, alive.
There's an epic feel to this book. Rennie employs every corner of the city in telling his story. It's high-tempo all the way, moving from one setpiece action scene to the next. Although predominantly a Dredd tale, there's considerable airtime given to Anderson, too. Other MC1 favs, such as Judge Giant and PI DeMarco, also get a good innings. Our villains, the four Dark Judges, are well presented; a great balance between their kookiness and spookiness achieved by Rennie.
All in all, this is a wonderful first outing for the Dredd series and a high recommend for newbies and seasoned fans of the prog/ meg alike.
