Shortly after opening, Komputel, Mega City’s first fully automated hotel, began killing its guests. Luckily Mega City’s top lawman Judge Dredd, who was on crowd control nearby, stepped in to save the day.
Dredd was heard to say “I got an itch in my trigger finger an’ that normally means trouble.”

Interesting sci-fi theme and comment on the automation of society. Dredd’s attitude to machines is still as black and white as ever.
