Post Apacolyptic future that is violent, bleak and hopeless. The Judges must keep order in this satirical action comic.

The Judges: The scary thing is that they could be a reality someday.
Do me one favor, before you read this, don't think of ANYTHING from the Stallone movie that this book is based off of, and BASED on is used loosely.      Judge Dredd has been around a good 30 years at least now, created by John Wagner, Carlos Ezquerra and Pat Mills and is the most famous comic character in Britian with his appearances in the anthology comic 2000 AD since it's second issue and has had that work translated into many other regular books.      …

Anarchy reigns in the future, but not if the Judges have anything to say about it. Black comedy, action and more in this classic.

Wiki



Comic series started in the 2000 AD anthology series and has appeared in all but it's first issue.  Covers the world of Judge Dredd in a post apacolyptic future where anarchy reigns and only he and his fellow Judges can keep order.

Judge Joe Dredd is a comics character whose strip in the British science fiction anthology 2000 AD is the magazine's longest running (having been featured there since its second issue in 1977). Dredd is a law enforcement officer in a violent city of the future where uniformed Judges combine the powers of police, judge, jury and executioner. Dredd and his fellow Judges are empowered to arrest, sentence and even execute criminals on the spot. He was created by writer John Wagner and artist Carlos Ezquerra, although editor Pat Mills also deserves some credit for his early development.

Judge Dredd is amongst the UK's best known home-grown comic characters. So great is the character's reputation that his name is sometimes invoked over similar issues to those explored by the comic series, such as the police state, authoritarianism and the rule of law.[1] Judge Dredd was named the seventh greatest comic character by the magazine Empire.[2]
