"Cold Cold Ground"-The morgue full of 13 dead Judges were only the beginning... of the end! Dredd's most vicious and unstoppable enemies-the Dark Judges-are clawing their way into Mega-City One, determined to transform it into a new city of the dead. That's right: Judges Death! Mortis! Fire! Fear! (And some new friends!) But the only thing more horrifying than the Dark Judges' onslaught are drastic measures the Justice Department is willing to take to repel them.

    It's early doors with this storyline, with Swierczynskimerely getting all his ducks in a row with this issue. It's the next episodes that will determine whether the Dark Judge army has been a good idea or not, but it's off to a decent start. Read Full Review

    Nelson Daniel likewise continues to capture vivid and disturbing imagery that adapts well to Swierczynski's script. We see art of unadulterated evil that is quite creepy, but also those little splashes of humor that match the tone needed perfectly. These two are gelling well together and making a seriously good comic. Artist Steve Scott who does the art for Slammer also does a perfectly good job not missing a beat with Daniels pace from the first story. I am not sure where everything is going, but I know that I sure as Hell want to see where it will finish. Read Full Review

    The Dark Judges have finally arrived, and now we get to say hello. This issue gives us the thumbnail sketch of the characters, and now Swierczynski can let them loose. Read Full Review

    Although this is part one of "American Way of Death" I'd suggest reading Judge Dredd #16 first or it is going to be really difficult to jump into this as a new reader. I'm really excited for the IDW introduction of the Dark Judges and just as excited to see some new Dark Judges. But I'm counting eight or nine new Dark Judges (not sure what that temporal anomaly is yet) and some of them are pretty ridiculous, or maybe tongue-in-cheek? I mean, Judge Sleep, really? The original John Wagner/Brian Bolland stories are classic; Swierczynski and Daniel have got their work cut out for them.
