I want into Judge Dredd, any advice how to, /co/?
i've only played a couple of his games but i'm really interested in the story and his badassery now
In case you're still around, this might help.
Plz no send SJS to my house.
There's been a couple of them, actually. Picked this one up last year and
Start with the Complete Case files, you'll get a bunch of his comics in one big collection. Try for number 3 or 4 first, I think 3 is the one with the judge child arc and has Un-American Graffiti in, plus sillier stuff like Otto Sumps ugly empire. They're a great place to start so really just grab any of em and if you like what you're reading, get more of em.
It has its moments, but it can also get very repetitive after a while.
They had a podcast with the president of Rebellion and owner of 2000AD last week. He'd like to do a Cursed Earth game, all open world. Dude's a fan of post apocalyptia.
>Do what I did and start at the very first prog
Nah mate, Dredd doesn't start till prog two funnily enough, i recommend just torrenting the case files, they miss out a few things but not much.
My father played a lot of the game, I was to small to understand the controls but I remember him arresting fatsos and them saying things like "Ok but when do we eat" or something like that.
I've always remembered this...I'd love to find the game again.
Looks like Mike McMahon art to me.
I don't think he's done anything with Karyn
Not so fast, creep. Code 13: Section 07, Disorderly Conduct.
That's one year in the Cubes for you.
There was a cross platform Dredd game in 1995 that was based on the movie, by Acclaim, for Genesis, SNES, Game Boy and Game Gear. Of these the SNES version looks the least horrible.
And staying in videogames and Dredd, Mike McMahon drew a bunch of Sonic The Comic and Decap Attack strips.
I got into Dredd by reading Case Files 4, 5, and then reading the newer arcs from Origins onwards. You could just read Case Files 5 and watch the Karl Urban movie, then pick whatever you fancy.
There is some interesting stuff on the thrillcast like the Garth Ennis (dislikes his Dredd, loves war comics) and Ezquerra interviews, and then stuff with Henry Flint and Colin McNeil. It seems to be something of a secret, given the low listening figures on Soundcloud. No sign of Wagner unless I missed something?
And back to videogames and Dredd - I forgot about the poor lightgun game for the PS1. That was a missed opportunity. Imagine what somebody like Namco could do with a G-con game like Time Crisis, but in MC1.
We all know this is coming out right? Hardback, colour spreads, and the 4 previously unpublishable Green Giant/McDonalds episodes. This would be a great introduction to Dredd for new readers because it's one of the earlier epic arcs.
Control send a catch wagon to the corner of Trump and Carson. Citizen sentenced to 12 months for disorderly conduct plus another 18 for lip. Better search his apartment for band literature too. Creep knows way too much about 20th century history.
> the poor lightgun game for the PS1
Cutscenes were GOAT
All dat glorious old school Mick McMahon and Bolland art...
I got your winner right here.
Ok, let's start with the basics.
AKA Best Chief Judge.
Former judge, current PI.
Dead and good drokkin' riddance, scheming bitch.
Judge Exorcist Lamia.
Undead and loving it!
Cursed Earth cutie.
From East Meg Two with love.
Not a friend of Dredd's.
is it bad i genuinely like the Janus strips? Inferno sucked but the rest was good.
anyway we got a shit ton of judges, how bout some civ's and perps?
I put fourth Sister Despair
Our woman in Hondo.
Nah, Janus is a pretty fun character. And her stories are still way better than Morrison's Dredd, that's for sure.
Also, feel free to add on. I still got a few more judges to go through.
Unfortunately, she has never crossed over into Dredd's world. But if you're aching for a bloodsucker, we can always use the alt dimension legal loophole to bring in Vampire Hershey.
Colonial Marshall Judge Lawson.
Or is she?
Im taking the kovaks pic from earlier in the thread and putting forward a Blondel Dupree
/pol/'s worst nightmare.
The fact that there's never been a Vampire Hershey/Durham Red team-up proves we're not in the most perfect of realities.
Judge Aimee Nixon.
Wally Squad. Dead twice.
was there ever any controversy over the character when she was introduced JA? i wasnt reading dredd when she was created,
Sister of Death.
Nah, not really. At best there was some light rumbling about how hard Emma Beeby was being pushed as THE FIRST WOMAN TO EVER WRITE DREDD EVER EVER, which was mostly true, but the stories themselves weren't that bad. Just middle of the road stuff.
They totally made that pun in one of the covers.
Also, Anderson/Shakta is my OTP.
Still has much to learn.
Also, gonna take a break. How much we got left?
JD has a surprising amount of competent female characters, wonder how it always goes under the radar for that? I read em so much I just take it for granted the Judges (male or female) tend to be damn good at their jobs unless it's some major threat that kills a bunch of em in one go to show how dangerous it is. It's kinda neat that the comic can do that so well.
Miss Gunderson, im running low, someone back me up
That shit caught me off guard when
he just up and kills Judge Dredd in the blink of an eye. You obviously knew he would come back, but fuck. Why the hell did he resurrect him? It's fucking Dredd.
Also, Blanche Tatum, AKA The Executioner.
Deputy Chief Judge Walsh, from the Emerald Isle.
Judge Salina Trace. Or rather, Judge Tomas Nary.
This is the best I can give you.
>Hot Blue Leather
Oh boy,we're off to a rousing start.
Oh Grud, I can't watch. Just... just tell me when Hershey cops it.
>tfw im now thinking of dredd characters i could have used instead of these.
Fuck forgot image
>Dishonouring the Psifu
Ten years, creep!
Dead again? Damn, Perrier. Also, Soul Sisters dead but who cares about them. And
>Halo Jones and Murd The Oppressor
I want that crossover.
Oh my, oh myyyyyy...
Also, Shakta, you slut.
Literally HOW? Talk about blood SUCKERS.
>Judge Anderson questions her sanity
>mfw that first result
The captcha is really getting on my nerves and its late, ill finish the dredd-off tommorw
It's been quite the riot so far, bud. Looking forward to part two!
In world? The Judges need to push the idea that the pre war political systems were chaotic and corrupt. Any suggestion that things were better in the past could lead to dissent and a weakening of their control.
Outside of story it's a chance to mock moral crusaders and censorship. I especially like the idea that 2000ad is a banned publication because it's just too exciting for mega-city kids to handle.
There was Block Judge, which was a great big Wagner/Ezquerra story about Dredd and Beeny taking over a single block.
There was Dark Justice, the return of the Dark Judges, which was kinda lackluster but had gorgeous Greg Staples art.
And then there was Rob Williams and Henry Flint's Enceladus, which... could've been better. Lovely art, but holy shit the writing. Not a fan.
Great little moment, that one.
Though I still think if Ennis hadn't been enough of a Dredd geek to bring back two judges who'd barely been used since their original appearances, both Dekker and Perrier would probably still be alive.
The things you do when you're working undercover.
Also, that was before Henry Flint made the most amazing redesign for the accounts division's uniform.
