Prog 390 to 392 – The Wally Squad

Story: The Wally Squad
Appears: 2000AD Prog 390-392
Issues: 3
Writers: John Wagner and Alan Grant
Art: Brett Ewins
Dated: 03 November to 17 November 1984

Two undercover Judges go off the rails.

This story not only broadens the depth and detail of the Justice Department but it also allows Wagner a different perspective to write from. What we have here is a gangster story in which Dredd is supporting actor rather than the lead and it works just fine.

The art is strong stuff with plenty of cinematic close-ups and bizarre Mega-city fashions. There are some stereotypical accents for the foreign criminals but nothing that you haven’t seen before.
