Prog 542 – Corporal Punishment

Story: Corporal Punishment
Appears: 2000AD Prog 542
Issues: 1
Writers: John Wagner and Alan Grant
Art: Liam Sharp
Dated: 3 October 1987

In a single issue we have a dig at a scandalised MP of the time, a debate on corporal punishment, the timeless theme of juveniles not respecting their parents, and the horror of power in the hands of a child. And the wonderful paradox of Dredd saying ‘violence breeds violence’ except in the case of the Judges. A most Orwellian ‘some are more equal’ concept.
