    Kei Zama delivers some beautiful art throughout this issue. The action is fantastic and I loved the way Mathias is drawn in action. The details in the panels are breathtaking and the scale of the city is amazing. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Nicholas Osborn Apr 3, 2020

    Judge Dredd: False Witness #1 is an interesting new mystery for fans to dive into without having to catch up on dozens of previous issues, but it does have some flaws in both it's approach to fascist rule and the use of Dredd as a background character. Read Full Review

    Fans of Judge Dredd will enjoy this comic because it offers Dredds quintessential no-nonsense intensity. New readers will also appreciate Judge Dredd: False Witness #1: it offers a lens through which to see our own world. And it judges our worldharshly. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Mar 25, 2020

    There are times when these powerful characters that are staples of their series add more to a book by being a plot device rather than a protagonist. If another, less physically imposing character is on the run from them or having to fight them, it increases the impact their presence has when they are on the page. This comic is well written, well-drawn, and well worth your money. Read Full Review

    I liked this first issue as it dives into Lincoln's point of view on the state of Mega-City One and all its inequalities. This story is shaping up to be incredibly relevant, especially in American society today, and should serve as a reminder to us all the subjugated deserve a hero even when there are none at present. Heroism comes in different forms and being a whistleblower may be the only salvation for some. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Christopher Egan Mar 27, 2020

    An exciting and well done introduction to this story, that never quite makes the leap to a great addition to the canon. Stellar artwork ratchets up the energy and quality overall, and is worth the pick up. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Charlie Ridgely Mar 25, 2020

    It's colorful, yet feels dirty, setting the scene of Mega City One rather well. It is, however, extremely on the nose, using our current place in history to tell a story of evil, greed, and corruption. Read Full Review
