Hope it's better than the previous run.

I presume it's a mini-series.

l, as some of the 4 parters were quite good, that's a plus.

"The Judge Dredd ongoing concluded six months ago, and IDW didn’t want to relaunch it without a clear new direction, so former Dredd artist Ulises Farinas will now be writing Judge Dredd: Mega City Zero along with co-writer Erick Freitas with art by Dan McRaid. The book will take Dredd to the as to previously unexplored Mega City Zero, a wild place where there is no law to uphold. Farinas wants to keep the satirical core of the book, and is using internet fandom as the metaphors for the residents of this city in the wild, overgrown jungle of a city."

No idea about the writing team, as writers I loved Farinas' work on Mega City 2. Assuming however that that's Dan McDaid not raid that'll be enough to justify a trial.

Just from the cover I thought this would be J Dredd's version of 'Old man Logan' or 'TDKR'.

Dan McDaid: "Here's a flavour of how my Dredd will look - gnarly, tough, ready" or as he says on his blog: "Judge Dredd piece for A Secret Thing"

Must confess, I wasn't familiar with his work but I do like what I see on his blog and Twitter feed.

Got a lot of goodwill towards IDW and its Dredd titles, despite the relative failure of the main series, so will definitely pick this up.

Completely agree, I especially like that font for DREDD.

Compared to the terrible main series IDW Dredd attempt, that looks fantastic. (Looks great when not compared too)

Their previous main Dredd series was (IMO) terrible, but IDW have delivered the goods otherwise, and their production values are great.
I'll definetly try this- if it's well written I'll keep buying it.
