Comic Review 55 // Lawman of the Future 08
With that in mind we dive into issue 08. I'm excited for this one as we see the entrance of Judge Death! The cover is pretty standard with Dredd dominating the cover and the creepy Judge Death themed badge looming over his shoulder. It would also seems like a new mobster story is coming, along with 'Hot' artwork, the chance to win some games and Who is Judge Death?
Stories inside this issue are; Organ Legging which we can assume is a one part story, part two of Death Hunt which must end this issue and finally Judge Death which has to be a two parter? I'm already a little worried as the image used on this page makes Death look a bit stupid, I hope the artwork is better than that. The next page is almost a full spread of Judge Dredd Casefile, based around info already provided by this comic. The artwork is rehashed from issue one and the info is a bit lack luster. Nice idea if they had put some real effort into it.
Such a great start. The artwork was solid, the character creepy and the story mind boggling. Is he Dredd?
The next few pages are classic readers letters, drawings and photographs. They are a funny to reader and remind me of a simpler time. But with that we head into the final tale.
Resyk for those new to Dredd, is a factory that takes the dead and breaks them down into usable parts like plastics. Here everything is used apart from the soul!
Inside Resyk Dredd tracks down his next perp and discovers where the bodies are being stored. Following a raid a large mob rack has been closed down, meaning Dredd is making friends once again and only time will tell what this means for MC-1.
And with that we finish issue 08. Definitely an improvement over 07. Standout story was of course Judge Death but Organ Leggers was a close second. Hopefully issue 07 was a blip, but I guess only time will tell.
