Comic Review 82 // Lobo/Judge Dredd - Psycho Bikers vs. The Mutants from Hell

It's been a busy week at work, sorting out an all-new online system for the post-COVID-19 life and training of staff didn't leave me as much time as I hoped for comic reading. I did manage to read a quick one-shot crossover comic. Starring Judge Dredd from 2000 AD and Lobo from the DC Universe.

Details

Title: Lobo/Judge Dredd - Psycho Bikers vs The Mutants From Hell.

Author: Alan Grant & John Wagner.

Artist: Val Semeiks and John Dell.

Commercial Fluff: Law and order meet chaos incarnate in this one-shot! Transported to Mega-City One, Lobo teams up with Judge Dredd to crack skulls and beat down a wild uprising of the Undercity mutants.

Review

I remember reading this when it first came out way back in 1995 (25 years ago ouch!). I had fond memories when I was twelve years old but as I re-read this tale I see the flaws that I missed in my younger years.

I've started to read a few crossovers now and though not the weakest (F**k you Funkoverse Dredd!), it was definitely in the low rankings. The story itself is pretty straight forward Lobo chases a mutant across dimensions to Mega-City One and of course, gets the attention of one Judge Dredd. Soon we have multiple fights breaking out and a cameo from Mean Machine. The action is fast and furious and over the top, the comedy is low brow and a little lame. The artwork is the only true highlight from comic and I now realize how blinded I was as a twelve-year-old.

I'm glad I re-tried the story and I feel you can't win them all. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
