With the Big Meg as your backdrop you can tell any kind of story. Here an urban legend becomes the basis for a Dredd adventure as blind white alligators have infested the pre-Meg sewer system. Throw in a City-Def survival exercise and it is all good.
The story shines in the throwaway lines and the little glimpses into the nature of the Megacity. We learn how sewerage works and how it is not just Resyk that doesn’t let anything go to waste. The devil is certainly in the details here.
The Kim Raymond art actually finds a niche at last. The almost black panels of the sewers come across much better than Raymond’s earlier efforts and the gator jaws splash page is excellent.
