I like Judge Dredd best when he’s nuanced. Here, he shows quiet confidence.
Bob Byrne does a lot more in 6 pages with his Ugly (Alien) Duckling Twisted Tale than most one-shots I’ve read this past summer.
What in blazes has Cadwallader gotten into in “Brass Sun?”
I finally got to see why this A.B.C. Warriors adventured is titled “Back to Earth.” The art style changes to monochrome, but Clint Langley’s illustrations remain superb. *crosses fingers for Ro-Jaws*
Grey Area: Bulliet uses unsubtle tactics on Uuveth. Uuveth unsubtly answers back. Yikes!
The title story is a classic adventure. I notice that Dredd wasn’t shy about pithy puns back in the old days.
The following sequel, about the ex-Judge who saves Dredd’s life, is marred by ugly art with the humans having too many hard lines. The art looks better at at least half-page size, but the panels are an eyesore.
“Dog Soldiers” (Robbie Morrison/Leigh Gallagher) is an okay romp where Dredd visits the Badlands and meets some vaguely lupine mercenaries. The resolution shows Dredd is NOT a meathead action hero.
“Asylum” (Gordon Rennie/Frazer Irving) features a restless freak Dredd and Psy-Judge Karen pursues. This story has interesting uses of primary colors to style the art.
A good collection of stories with the first story being the highlight.
