I picked up a copy of IDW Dredd #1 Wednesday and the owner of my local comic book shop told me he's surprised at how well it sold. He gave me the last copy he had for the week. I got the cover by Jim Starlin, btw.

Anyways, this "new" Judge Dredd is still recognizably Dredd. I would've liked some mentions of the Justice Department, but Mega-City One retains its bizarre character. The catalyst of the plot takes place in Zuckerburg block, where a regenerating fruit tree glitches so that flinging fruit breaks storefront windows.

Dredd & two other Judges investigate and get some perps. However the trail to the ultimate villain has just begun there. I wouldn't recommend the back-up story because Dredd's acting a bit out-of-character for the sake of a "clever" ending.

Also, Rebellion, the UK-based owners of 2000 AD & Dredd, are pushing the latest Mega-City One story. It involves Judges Dredd, Dirty Frank (a bum-like undercover judge), and Jack Point (undercover Judge who dresses like a Simp/clown). I had to look back at past Progs to connect the pieces. I like Point's story the least, but it has some surreal moments.

I've been privileged by IDW & Rebellion to cover these comics ASAP. D'Israeli, drawing Frank for "Low Life" in the pages of 2000 AD, provides somes commentary.

My reviews of 2000 AD Prog 1810 and IDW's Judge Dredd #1.

I also provide sneak peeks at Progs 1810 and 1811, if you want to see what the art looks like. Also, for those who are willing to read digital and want to get the latest 2000 AD, they're available same-day as in UK stores on their website.
