    Dredd must now go beyond Mega-City One into what I assuming will be limbo. This land also holds no law. So what will a Judge do in land where he can’t judge? I have no idea but I am stoked to see how this plays out. We don’t really know if Anderson will be in his head either. I wish she was going with him, because these two make the story tens time better but oh well. It is an interesting concept too because what really is the law? Law is made by man and man is flawed, so laws are flawed. Dredd must now take on the role of a human making human judgement. There is no law for him to abide, so he can’t say his rulings are from a judge. Yeah this is going to be good. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Jun 26, 2013

    It's frustrating when a series as enjoyable as this delivers a dud. It's been fun, exciting and fast paced the last seven issues, which makes me think maybe a lot of the exposition here should have been interspersed more equally throughout the rest of the series to let this comic breathe. Instead, we have an issue here that gets a laundry list of plot across and delivers answers to anyone wishing for them, but the joy of the previous issues is lost when you're getting bombarded with exposition. A good single issue has to do a lot of things, and because of their brevity requires good pacing. When you've got so much exposition going it's hard to get that well paced story. Artistically though this issue works and does things to curb the preachiness, but it's not enough to save the issue. Read Full Review
