"Apocalypse War" rages on in vibrant new color! Mega-City One retaliates against the East-Meg forces by attempting to nuke their city to kingdom come! The Sov forces have a trick up their sleeves, though, and with the Chief Judge out of commission, it looks like Dredd will have to take the reigns of resistance!

    Comic Bastards - Jeff Butler Oct 2, 2013

    While there's no real reason to publish vintage comics this way when big cheap trades are available, the comic contained is a great portal to a different time in comic books and a different time for the world. Like the racial caricature Axis enemies of the 1940"s to the snickering alley rapists of the 1990"s, vintage Judge Dredd captures the dark side of the era, but unlike those examples, instead of sending in heroes to defeat the things we were afraid of, Wagner and Ezquerra made the hero the problem itself. It's something I'd like to see captured in Dredd again, especially since the world is getting weirder and creepier every day, but for now it's worth the trip back in time to this unique piece of pop culture history.

    Comic Booked - Aaron Clutter Oct 6, 2013

    This is a great story, a little wordy, but good stuff. I am not so keen on the political aspects of the story, although I understand the setting and that it illustrates the conflicts that still exist even in the world after the great war. Some things never change. To sum it all up, IDW continues to deliver a quality book, the artwork is classic, the new colors are really a good add, and the new covers are awesome. I recommend you at least pick it up and leaf through it, to see if this is for you. Read Full Review
