This year’s 2000AD FCBD contribution was an “all ages” take on some of our favourite characters. But this isn’t The Mighty One’s first attempt. The last published venture by the House of Tharg to create a younger / all ages title looked to capitalise on a certain mid ’90s film. Luke takes a look so you don’t have to. You’re welcome.
Judge Dredd : Lawman Of The Future
By Luke Williams
Oh dear, IDW are at it again . Is this as Dreddful (guffaw)as their recent efforts, or does it hark back to the promise of the “JD Year One” and “Mars Attacks Judge Dredd”?

Review by Luke Williams
Luke’s reading pile next to the marital bed is growing ever higher. Risking life threatening injury, he picks out 2000AD’s contribution to this year’s Free Comic “Book”( if you must) Day. Is it a worthy attempt to snare new readers? Or just a vain bid at drawing attention to the Prog’ and a dry run in a longer term plan to refocus the title?
