Prog 354 – Are You Tired of Being Mugged?

CF07Story: Are You Tired of Being Mugged?
Appears: 354
Issues: 1
Writers: John Wagner and Alan Grant
Art: Ian Gibson
Dated: 4 February 1984

An anti-mugging service appears with predictable results. This story riffs on the fear of crime in the riot laden 1980’s and spotlights the petty and destructive desires of human beings. Possibly inspired by the Guardian Angel’s brief appearance in the UK this has the no-good-deed-goes-unpunished ending of many Dredd stories. As a citizen you just can’t win.
