Heavy Metal Dredd by John Wagner, Alan Grant and various

A collection of Judge Dredd's most exteme adventures

More from your favourite ultra hard-line future lawman in this collection of some of Judge Dredd’s most extreme stories. First printed in Rock Power and the Judge Dredd Megazine, these are stories with no limits, going for bloody slapstick comedy with a selection of the more excessive artists bringing John Wagner and Alan Grant’s scripts to life.

Simon Bisley’s over-exaggerated art is always visually spectacular even while drawing the most subversive of images. John Hickleton’s art is perhaps more of an acquired taste but you could never accuse him of holding back on the gory details.

These are violent, over the top tales of black comedy that could certainly do with more depth beyond the lashings of brutal carnage, but there are depraved laughs to be had and some striking pages of art work. Not one for the squeamish.

(2000AD/Rebellion)
