This is possibly the most grown-up Dredd story ever. Maybe too grown up for a children’s comic.

Here is the Justice Department at its most underhand and controversial. It really makes you wonder if they have crossed the line completely and they are only selfishly serving their own agenda. Which is one of the duties of art, to make you think and question. There is no doubt that the techniques that the Judges employ will have been used by real world powers. Its scary stuff indeed and superbly demonstrates just how much narrative range the writers have within the setting.
