Judge Dredd: Every Empire Falls
« on: 05 February, 2017, 10:33:24 pm »
[url-https://judgetutorsemple.wordpress.com/2017/02/05/judge-dredd-every-empire-falls-spoiler-free-preview-including-5-pages/]My spoiler free Preview[/url] of this book is on my blog now,

Previews are of course light in substance as I can't really discuss the plot much at all. Most of you will have read these stories,

This is my first Preview in a while. Feels good to have one under my belt.

How come this trade didn't get highlighted on the main 2000AD website page?

I also would have bought a bookplate of this with a Tom Foster print.

John Wagner certainly left a lot for the other Dredd writers to deal with following Chaos Day, making a few changes necessary to the already rug-pulling Trifecta, followed by further damage to the city in Enceladus. Here, Michael Carroll has thought out the implications for the toughest lawman of them all and his city on a global scale, and it's fascinating to see other cities which may have been depicted in parallel stories in the past having a direct influence on events in the main strip.

It's all good, I think my favourite part was Lion's Den, PJ Holden giving a great depiction of Brit-Cit, including a welcome appearance for Armitage ahead of an imminent first volume of reprints in the Mega Collection.

Great stuff.

Recently ordered the trade for this and am halfway through it.

I have to say Rebellion's trades really are quality items. I bought this one and the recent "The Order" one and you do feel like you are getting something that a lot of care has been put in to. Obviously there is the story and art but even the type of paper and the matte covers really help.

I'm enjoying this one but was annoyed the introduction by the author tipped off that Dredd was going to be in an apparently-fatal-but-not-really situation.  Of course, I would never have believed Dredd had been killed off had I come to those moments in the story cold, but it pulled me out of the stories as I was self-consciously waiting for it to happen.

It could have been worse, Dash. One of the old Judge Child collections have away the ending in the introduction.

Sorry - I probably should've spoilered that.  But in the millisecond between posting and realising, the Modify button disappeared.
