5.0 out of 5 stars bats not to buy it, 8 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Batman/Judge Dredd Collection (2000 Ad) (Hardcover)
Judge Dredd and Batman ! both superheroes for those who dont like superheroes and in a fantastic collection to boot!
Dredd has never really broke the us market but cross over stories like this help raise his profile and always do it well! so far we've had dredd/batman,dredd/predator,dredd /aliens and dredd/lobo. and none feel wrong because dredds world is so diverse anything goes!
This volume collects all 4 batman /dredd strips released by dc comics and with john wagner on board triumph on all levels
in the first batman ends up in mega city one and makes friends with dredd (not really) after a bit of a to do bats and anderson end up back in gotham trying to stop judge death from wreaking his own brand of mayhem there...
Death suffers a bit from the almost comedic way he can be potrayed in this tale,not helped by simon bisleys good but ultimately cartoonish artwork .
Next are two almost throwaway tales one sees dredd as drwan by cam kennedy travell to gotham to pick a fight to keep him from doing something else that could affect dredds world (look just buy the damn thing willya?) the other is a riddler tale putting dredd and batman in a hunt with aliens and killers, batman being the quarry!
The fourth story is by far my fave,death and his three brothers in arms get a fith member in the form of joker by way of a malfunctioning dimension belt they infiltrate a city block that has chosen to seal itself in and live a hedonistic life away from the judges this naturally goes wrong and they find their paradise swiftly turn to hell...
with stunnin artwork throughout (jason brashill and jim murray's being my highlights) the tale arrives to a satisfying conclusion of the lawman and vigilantes team ups ...

Dredd vs Lobo is to me the weakest entry but an enjoyable piece of hokum nevertheless not being familiar with lobo i didnt know what to expect .

A gorgeous hardback book with full colour painted art throughout this is a joy to own and though i would have liked to see it in a larger coffee book format its still a delight to own...buy yours now..
