About this deal

The artwork, as is often the case, is by a variety of artists: Ezquerra, Dean Ormston, Sean Philips and Peter Doherty. Maggin, Tony Isabella, Tom DeFalco, Marv Wolfman, Roger Stern, Steve Leialoha, Marie Severin, Al Milgrom, Ralph Macchio, Peter David, Sal Buscema, Jim Mooney, Frank Miller, Mike Zeck, John Byrne, Rich Buckler, Ed Hannigan, Ron Frenz, Kerry Gammill, Tony Salmons, Rick Leonardi, Elliot S! If you fail to comply with this obligation, we may have a right of action against you for compensation. It's interesting to see Dredd's character and world as they are first established, but this collection will most likely be of interest only to die-hard fans and completists.

If a refund is payable to you we will process the refund as soon as possible, and, in any case within fourteen (14) days. These stories from the early 2000AD are superb to watch the evolution of a character who was ground breaking back in the Seventies and Eighties. The following stories originally appeared in 2000AD Prog 1485 - Prog 1517 and Judge Dredd Megazine 246-252. It’s a fascinating moment when his face is censored (because Bellardini cocked it up), a genuinely historical moment where a happy accident leads to one of the most iconic absences in comic history.With the body-count rising and hope running out, will the Judges be able to turn back the tide of death? Anyway, I would recommend people start with one of the other stories as their first Judge Dredd tale. Though even it has a few pot shots at fascist ideology like the fact he immediately begins oppressing his fellow robots worse than regular humanity once he uses their oppression to gain power.

Unfortunately, as Ennis himself would later admit, his epic contained many already familiar elements.Then we’re into the twenty chapters of ‘Judgement Day’, Ennis’s first Dredd epic and the first story to be published simultaneously in both 2000 AD and the Judge Dredd Megazine. He's judge, jury and executioner – the lawman delivering justice to the mean streets of far-future Mega-City One. It also shows just how far comics have come since the late 70's, although Brian Bolland's work is probably the begging of the more modern day feel. The Judge Joe Dredd of the comics generally is close enough to being the square-jawed hero of other comics that he’s not quite as nuanced or deep a character as he will eventually become. A good deal of the humour at first comes from putting a straight-laced hard-boiled supercop into the type of patently ridiculous futuristic society typical of the more satirical strain of UK science-fiction, and having him act like the "straight man" to everything around him.

Zogezegd volgens de top reviewers is “comic” een ruw medium in de jaren 70, spijtig genoeg “slechts” zwart wit art, “slechte” storyline, etc etc. This pulse-pounding collection features stories scripted by John Wagner (A History of Violence) and Garth Ennis (Preacher, The Boys), and with art from Carlos Ezquerra (Strontium Dog), Steve Dillon (The Punisher), Sean Phillips (Sleeper) and Dean Ormston (Lucifer), amongst others. It was in this environment that Millar made his first major contribution to Marvel with Ultimate X-Men, as Millar integrated forty years’ worth of X-Men history, characters and lore into a solid two-year run, making the companion title to Ultimate Spider-Man every bit the creative and commercial success.I know next to nothing about the character so I don’t know if I’m off here but I think things are going to be interesting going forward. Although Mike McMahon may not have illustrated as many strips as other 2000 AD creators, his importance to the comic cannot be overstated. The following stories originally appeared in 2000AD Prog 1520 - Prog 1554 and Judge Dredd Megazine 253-260. This is probably why, even though I enjoy the Marvel movies and The Walking Dead, I have never been one to try and get the entire history behind them or compare original stories with the movie version or what's on TV.

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. The clarity of the reprint in these editions isn't always ideal, but they look great on the shelf and it's better than having to track down thousands of weekly back issues. It can’t quite agree on what its tone is meant to be: bleakly dystopian, blackly humorous, over-the-top ridiculous, excitingly action-filled, or surrealist. The final three strips are a good indication of what one could expect from the Dredd material of the early to mid-1990s, at least in terms of artwork: one good, one bad, one indifferent. Volume 12 features the writing of comic-book legends Alan Grant (Lobo) and John Wagner (A History of Violence) along with the work of such classic artists as John Ridgway (Dead Man), Colin MacNeil (Strontium Dog) and Jim Baikie (Skizz).A fantastic idea from 2000AD, the Complete Case Files reprint every Dredd story that appeared in the comic. Aunque no es una mala edición no me ha gustado el tamaño, creo que es demasiado pequeño y, a menudo, me costaba leer algunos de los textos más pequeños.
