This is a strong mini-epic that despite digging up and beating the dead Judge Child villain is a tense and rewarding read.
The alternate/ future setting allows the writers to run riot and kill off major characters to up the stakes. Despite the citywide disaster backdrop this feels extremely personal. Anderson gets a chance to shine and behave like a real human being which is something we rarely have opportunity for in a Dredd story.
For the unique tone and creepy setting this is definitely a classic.
