Ape Gang and East Side Mob Finally Busted

CF 01Teams of Judges led by Judge Dredd finally put a stop to two of the city’s most notorious organised crime rackets. Dredd used some creative interpretation to confine Don Uggie and his gang under the Animal Nuisance Act 1987 as human laws don’t apply to the city’s cerebrally enhanced apes.

Don Uggie was heard to say “Listen punk stop makin’ wit da wisecracks an’ gimmie dat stinkin’ banana!”

Possibly inspired by the PG Tips chimps of period advertising; there are great characters and a throught provoking sci-fi theme.
