This modest tale is possibly one of the most flawless Dredd stories going. It’s exciting and suspenseful with a wonderfully emotional core. It is packed with little Mega-city nuances in opinion polls and in news reports. It shows you just how harsh and unpleasant it is to be a Judge and how dumb the Mega Citizens can be. There are no aliens or psychic shenanigans just honest human drama. Bravo!

Ezquerra also does a good job with some really interesting panel layouts and borders.
