This is a great little story that shows Dredd isn’t just a fascist robot but does look at the bigger picture. There is a great gag about the block names although overly explaining it lessens the value. Some great art by Robinson.
This is a great little murder mystery/ thriller with some complex motivations. It is an unusual setting and introduces a Brit Cit Judge too. The art is also noteworthy because of some thumbnail sized panels.
For a single issue story this causes a lot of fuss. Once again we see the return of Dredd’s racism against those of Far Eastern descent. Obviously you expect Perps to show such behaviour as it is a shortcut to telling you they are the bad guys. A technique slightly better than making them have a black hat or a disability. But Dredd is famously neutral in his treatment of all criminals and citizens. How does calling people Charlie Chan as a denigration reflect this? If it is revealed later that Dredd has some bias about a particular ethnic group this would make an interesting story but I suspect that won’t be the case.
