Would you like to be young again? Well, yes, but with some reservations. For example, Orlok was a right bellend in his twenties, attempted to reclaim a lost youth in his thirties and suffers the consequences of both decades even today. Ask him which decade he’d rather live in and he’d choose now. Mainly as he has Netflix, lives in New Zealand and has ready access to gin.
John Wagner and Alan Grant make a deal and Ian Gibson brings the dime bags.
WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT (IN ONE SENTENCE)?:
A stookie shipment enters the city.
WHO’S THAT IN THE HELMET?:
Judge Clamp reports on the bleeding obvious.
Judge Bean helps Dredd interrogate the stookie users.
IT’S CULTURAL, INNIT?:
John DeLorean was an American engineer, inventor and auto industry ex until it all went tits up.
Pasternak probably relates to the Russian poet and novelist, Boris.
Dredd’s belt pouches are the wrong colour.
ANY LAW LORE?:
Involvement in a stookie deal will get you three years.
WHAT THE DROKK?:
Dredd has stookie buyers brought in, but how are they not already in the cubes if they are known to the Department?
WHAT’S THE ART LIKE?:
The work here is great with some astonishing panel work, great colours and superb use of splash pages.
Best of all was the amazing splash panel of Dredd coming up firing after the truck rolls over him.
HOW MANY LINKS?:
Though a simple story it actually has some fizz about it and the art pushes it up a notch. Three links.
