"Black Light District, conclusion"-It's on! Hang on to your wigs and keys, citizens-here comes the no-holds-barred brawl between Dredd and Judge Death you've been waiting for... and this bloody you-know-what match will leave both changed forever!
To conclude and put a rating to this comic, I had a lot of fun reading it, and I put this down to the excellent art and the inventive situations which seem like they could only happen in a Judge Dredd comic. To rate this a 3 again based on the problems with juggling both stories would be ignoring what this story got right, which is why my rating is as follows. Keep up the good work everyone, and I can't wait to see what you can do with all your focus on one storyline. Read Full Review
I really did not find anything wrong with this issue except for it being very drawn out with the Dark Judges and seeing less time with Council of five of the moon. Also seeing Dredd go back and forth between the ooze just to get the fabled exorcist rounds could have been done in this issue earlier. Overall this is a really good issue and only minor complaints to it but I cannot wait for the next arc dealing with Dredd as a fugitive. Read Full Review
Judge Dredd #24 is an entertaining finish to the Black Light District arc that plants some seeds for some fun storylines down the road. Daniel's artwork sets a unique visual tone for the book that compliments Swierczynski's dark humour and I'll be back for more down the line. Read Full Review
I need to go into spoiler territory to tell you why this was so bad: Dredd defeats the Dark Judges using essentially magic bullets that he found lying around somewhere... I'm not even kidding. This issue is about the most we see of the Dark Judges which is still very little, mostly they just surround Dredd and push him around like it's recess in grade three; they don't want to kill him because "they want to clone him" which in of itself doesn't make any sense. I guess we're assuming the Dark Judges don't understand how cloning works? Thoroughly disappointing on all fronts, save your money. Now that the Dark Judge arc is finally over, I'll never read this IDW title again. Do yourself a favour and read the original Judge Death stories by John Wagner and Brian Bolland.
