In Mega-City one, Judges ARE the law. But what happens when a veteran Judge goes bad? And he's so skilled at hiding his misdeeds that even Judge Dredd is unable to dig up the evidence he needs? Looks like it's time to choose psis... from the Psi Division, that is!

    Overall, I was skeptical going into this issue, but DuaneSwierczynskihit it out of the park. The problems from the first issue are corrected, it's a good story that leaves you wanting more. Dredd has turned into an actual character, a pretty cool protagonist if I say so myself. Judge Anderson is a great character to have in this book, I hope she remains part of it in the coming issues. With Judge Dredd #2, you can count me excited for the coming issues. Read Full Review

    Judge Dredd #2 is how you tell a Dredd story. Both the larger story and the short entry make for a great read with some truly impressive art. If issue 1 left you feeling Dredd should get a death sentence, issue 2 won the case on appeal. Read Full Review

    Just like issue one of JUDGE DREDD, the first story was fantastic, but the back-up had a few problems in the art department. I really like how this book has two stories in it, and how it's gradually building the Dredd world for new readers. Both stories are incredibly fun, and the art in Cover Me was awesome.I made this book a book to watch on Top of the Pile and I stand firmly by that, since I think Sweirczynski is doing some awesome things here. Overall, I recommend this issue."Cover Me" - 4/5"The Good Parts" - 3/5JUDGE DREDD #2 gets 4 Drokks out of 5 Read Full Review

    I am now very happy I picked this issue up, and I am looking forward to the next issue greatly. The introduction of Anderon is massive for me, as well as the fact that the team really want to make a Dredd book and not just any old action comic. This is something which is going to please old fans, as well as give new readers a taste of  this fantastic universe; which in my opinion does not get showcased enough.  I have read really mixed reviews about this series so far, so I recommend those who arent sure whether to jump in to just try it for themselves. It is a unique read as it is Judge Dredd, but how are you going to know if it is for you if you don't go for it? You may become a Dredd fan for life. Read Full Review

    IGN - Poet Mase Dec 19, 2012

    Judge Dredd #2 lacks all of the humor and subtext that made issue #1 a success. There is still a decent amount of action to slake fans' thirsts, but the whole experience feels utilitarian. Read Full Review

    If you’re new to Judge Dredd and looking for a way to introduce yourself to the character then you should benefit from buying a copy of Judge Dredd #2 and what’s more is that you’ll be able to get your hands on some gorgeous Brendan McCarthy artwork. Veterans of 2000AD might be less likely to enjoy a younger and less complex Dredd but I wouldn’t rule it out - it’s certainly worth a look. Read Full Review
