    If Dredd in “2000AD” is one lawman clinging desperately to the notion that fascist law is the only thing that will save society from the cursed Earth, then Dredd at IDW is one lawman clinging desperately to the past, to only order he knows after society has returned to the blessed Earth.

    I'll never understand the need to continue a successful IP at all costs. So, this is Judge Dredd, but in a completely new world, with a completely new look, completely new enemies, and a completely new atmosphere. Or, in other words, not much Judge Dredd at all. At what point is it okay to just change the name and write something completely new? Read Full Review

    Overall, I just couldn't get into The Blessed Earth. Judge Dredd has long been a guilty, but hard to find, pleasure for me and many of the U.S. versions of the character just don't fit. Judge Dredd to me has always been more robot than man. His relentless 24 hour enforcement of the law is the only thing that drives him. Additionally, Mega City One has always provided a good backdrop for the stories and is as much a character as Dredd is himself, and its destruction hurts the story. Here, everything seems off-kilter with all of the traditional elements of a Judge Dredd story missing. This would have served better as a futuristic wild west tale of a lone sheriff trying to bring order to a group of settlers than as a Judge Dredd story. Read Full Review
