Judge Dredd: The Garth Ennis Collection
by Garth Ennis and various artists
Rebellion/Simon & Schuster, $20US, $23Can, 160pp
Release Date: December 11, 2012
A collection of eight storylines from 2000AD magazine, which were first serialized in 1991-1993. For the newbies, Judge Dredd is a lawman in a post-apocalyptic future of loosely allied city states called mega-cities, analogous to modern nations. The rule of law is harsh and carried out by motorcycle judges on the beat, without the old ways of lawyers or juries. All of these stories were written by Ennis, with different artists. Three stories feature his Irishman, Judge Joyce, perhaps the closest thing to a comic relief/foil/sidekick for Dredd. At least, there are amusing moments when they team up. ~~ Mike Griffin
