He has also written Daily Star Dredd strips, Judge Dredd, Harke and Burr, Mean Machine, Past Imperfect, Pulp Sci-Fi, Rogue Trooper, Satanus, Terror Tales, Tharg the Mighty, Vector 13, Absalom and Aquila. Robbie Morrison is one of 2000 AD's most popular writers, having co-created The Bendatti Vendetta, Shakara, Shimura and Vanguard, and has chronicled the adventures of Judge Dredd in 2000 AD and the Judge Dredd Megazine.

The Restricted files are generally a lucky dip - some good, some average and some bad. This one opens with a strong Wagner/Ezquerra story asking do you have what it takes to be Dredd - good tale that's darkly funny too. Next up is a Mr Benn parody for the older readers!

It really is a mix of quality and sadly despite the strong start there is some terrible art and one story (Judge planet II) has a picture of a Judge saying and I quote "I've wet my knickers" drawn by what looks like a three year old on acid. Words are not enough....

There are more good stories than bad, but I'm very visual and there is more bad art in this collection than good.

There is a bonus at the very back of the book that I recall from the US imports (Eagle comics I think?) that has some info on stub guns, heatseekers, birdies and Law Masters and much more - however it feels as if these are space fillers to pad the book out as there are insufficient tales to pack in.

It's recommended for fans, but it's not a good introduction to the world of the Mega Cities.

The Restricted Files collections have been a bit of a mixed bag by their very nature, some great moments, some okay, some...not good at all moments. There's still some good stuff here but it seems a bit front-loaded, after the mid-point of the book the quality seemed to drop off and it was a bit of a slog to get through. There's a great chunk at the back of bonus material which makes it a bit of a must-have for the hardcore, for everyone else this really isn't Dredd at his best.

I've read plenty of Dredd, though by no means all of it (or even close) but these stories stood out as one of the better collections I've seen. Authors seem to be at their best when allowed free reign, which they get more with single issue short stories than they would be arcs. I especially like 'Dredd of Drokk Green', a story I briefly saw years ago and which stuck with me until I got to enjoy it again in this volume.
