Judge Dredd Mega Collection Book 6: Mandroid

As a complete package, Judge Dredd Mega Collection Book 6: Mandroid is a bit of a mixed bag, but the strength of the opening story is more than enough justification to add it to your collection. Depressing as hell and delightfully deep, Mandroid shines a light on the nature of justice and its relationship to revenge, all while delivering a somber look at how the system failed a man and how that man, in turn, failed beautifully in a blaze of bullets, blood and hopelessness.

2000 AD: Prog 1924

It can’t be expressed enough how well these progs are put together and the kind of material and creators that 2000 AD gets week in and week out for your enjoyment. There is so much to love here, it’s hard to pick out favorites or highlights, so maybe it’s best if you just go pick this up.

Insurrection: Liberty

Insurrection: Liberty was a pleasant surprise, especially considering there was no previous knowledge of this corner of the Dredd-verse. It was a quick, one-sitting read that had everything you could want from a book, even if Dredd himself didn’t play a role in the story.

Judge Dredd Mega Collection Book 5: Shamballa

Judge Dredd Mega Collection Book 1: America

Judge Dredd Mega Collection: America is an absolutely brilliant starting point for any reader looking to get into the kind of stuff that made the recent Dredd movie great or even any reader that simply looking to get into damn good comics.

Dredd: Urban Warfare

Dredd: Urban Warfare does what all good Judge Dredd tales do: it thrills with its surface-level action while subtly planting questions in your brain about society’s structure and its reasons for being through exaggerated caricatures of the all-too real tribulations found outside its pages.

Predator vs Judge Dredd vs Aliens HC

Price of admission is virtually covered through the spectacular art in both these stories and the sheer thrill of seeing the singularly minded beasts, be they dreadlocked or helmeted or drooling, come face to face with their own primal natures is its own reward. For Grud’s sake, who doesn’t love the smell of napalm fueled justice in their comics collection?
