A double whammy in the return of both the Dark Judges and Anderson. The Dark Judges represent a tangible threat to Dredd and the Mega-city unlike the regular criminals that pop up most weeks. Anderson is also a great foil for Dredd by being his emotional opposite.
This story sees the mythos expanded as we journey to the Dark Judge’s homeworld. Like the last encounter there is a satisfying and credible conclusion to this latest chapter.
Bolland does a superb job and is the perfect artist for this story. His mastery of contorted, terror-filled expressions is perfect and brings a real sense of action to the page. There is a wonderful double page spread of all the Dark Judges too.
This also contains one of the most famous quotes of Dredd history: “gaze into the fist of Dredd.”
