I'd have to opt for the first one I ever read, "Fungus", about a particularly virulent mutant strain of mushroom that grew on any unsuspecting passer by. Looking back, it contained the most blatant drug references ever.
An especially poignant moment was the mayor who immediately before his death became convinced he was a mushroom, uttering the immortal dying words: "I am Mayor Jim Mushroom. Please don't eat me!"
So what's your favourite Dredd story and why?

"The Judge Child Quest" has two or three really bad pacing flaws but
when it's good it is bloody good, too.
Best short ones? "Father Earth" is top, and the one where Dredd
fights Captain Skank.

On the prospect of working on a new Judge Dredd film, Danny Boyle said reports linking him to the 2000 AD sci-fi franchise were not accurate.
"Where has this come from?" he said. "Someone asked me about Judge Dredd the other day!
"I hated the last version of it; I can't imagine the next one will be any better."
you'd think he'd be used to people confusing him with Danny Cannon

Apocalypse War is fucking untouchable, yeah. I like Oz a lot, though not a lot of other people seem to. It's really interestingly structured; the first and third acts barely feature Dredd at all.

Block Mania - totally awesome, but for me Apocalypse War was where Judge Dredd started its slide into shite. Ezquerra phoned in his art, while the story was plodding and uninventive.

Really, this is an absurd thing to say. Absurd! "Apocalypse War", while padded like most of those long stories are, is full of great inventive moments, like the whole sequence with the Mega City nukes being teleported to a parallel earth and wiping it out in the space of two pages. And the brilliantly nasty scene of the Judges coldly executing traitors! And "The citizens? What makes you think *they'd* be interested?" And sorry, you are just plain WRONGE about Ezquerra's art.
I think it is true, however, that fans tend to overrate the Wagner/Grant era, maybe for nostalgic reasons. Certainly, reading lots of these together in the Casebook reprints makes me realise how forgettable a lot of them were(which is unsurprising when you think how many they had to churn out per year, added to the fact they were writing something like two thirds of the whole comic at one stage). And I def think Wagner has done more interesting stuff as a solo writer, cf "America" et al.

Really not sure about the current Dredd story seems to be rather too all over the place, though maybe some somewhat extraneous bits were tidied up a couple of weeks back. Put in a bottle for further good use?
Occurred to me that they didn't know what to do with Dredd at the moment and might actually be trying to kill him off. Though likelihood is that he will come through and save the day. & maybe it isn't Dredd they're killing off, major deathtoll in MC1 so far.
Interesting to hear about a film in the works, not sure how I missed hearing that before. & yes MC1 does look a bit wrong in that image

I saw that there was a cardboard advertising stand in the cinema i saw Spiderman in this week, so the film is obviously much further along than I'd assumed. & IMDB has it as complete since April.
Looks like it's a bit more near future than I'd've expected. Looks like its current dystopia plus people in uniforms but I guess it's only 100 years from now in the stories I'm reading now from the mid 80s, getting on for 30 years ago. Though the change in the way things look now from 100 years ago is a bit more extreme isn't it?
That is going on that clip and the other trailer.& yeah would repeat what somebody said earlier about the cityscape looking much more square/rectangular than the rounded shapes you get in the comics.
Is that Judge Anderson the blonde with who I suppose to be Dredd? Only blonde I'm aware of from the comics that you frequently see with no helmet on. Is the helmet free thing supposed to enhance or rather not limit her psychic powers? Cos otherwise you'd expect her to be wanting to wear one in a situation like that, wouldn't you?

It's not dissimilar to The Raid, but it's also pretty good at being Dredd. Fascist police, lots of good incidental details (including most of the bullet-types), Dredd keeps his bloody helmet on.

Personally, I would have liked Mega-City One to have been more like it is in 2000AD; more stylised, more sky walkways and rounded buildings. More life, more craziness. But as a rough, tough action flick, it delivers. And Urban nails Dredd.
― DavidM, Saturday, 8 September 2012 10:40 (8 months ago) Permalink
I was thinking "Not enough chin!" but that's probably just a result of later artists (including imho the definitive Dredd artist Ron Smith) emphasising it, if you look at the Mike McMahon from Dredd's first appearance on the wiki page, Urban pretty much nails it.
― Andrew Farrell, Saturday, 8 September 2012 10:45 (8 months ago) Permalink
Haven't seen the Raid but did really enjoy this.It does look like its a lot less futuristic than the comic strip but it might be the more realistic for it. Also the uniform looks like its more practical than the strip one, may just be over what looked right on an actual human being. Though leather or synthi-leather smoothness plus joint pads might be more sexy.
I can't remember to what extent the Stallone film changed the uniform. & I'm also only just realising the absence of robots in the film, whereas there was a Hammerstein in the old one.
But it is great that this exists without a need to make a direct comparison to the earlier film, even having done so. This is a very atymospheric film that seems to keep up a level of intensity throughout. It just seems to be about 50 years before the comic version in termas of distance from now.
It starts with a chase on ground level in a part of the city that has been pretty much closed off to the normal human population in the comic strip. Seems that people are still living in contact with the original city ground level in this. I think it's a mutie only zone or at least an undercity in the comic. The roads in that are all in the sky to the current city level, in the film there actually does appear to be a floor.
Liked it though & it does seem that most films do tend to make rather large changes to source material to make things work on screen. Think I would have preferred a straighter translation though. But if there are more films by this team on this subject matter I won't be complaining, unlike the Stallone one.
Wouldn't mind seeing a Johnny Alpha film if it was done as well.

Really enjoyed this a lot, the repositioning in '10 minutes into the future' really works. This was made worse by the trailer for End of Watch beforehand, which made Los Angeles today look like a slightly more low-rent version of Mega City One.
Two Fatties shown during the film as far as I could see. My reaction to the first one was that he wasn't that fat and to the second one that he was a real guy without makeup. The future is now, huh.

Garland said as much in an interview I saw, re: fascistic tendencies. 'Twould probably be the judges coming up against pro-democracy rebellions. The third in a possible trilogy would be the entrance of the Dark Judges, i.e. showing the Judge fascist state taken to its absurdist extreme.

I think they had considered the Judge Child, the America story which could be what R Baez is referring to as coming up against the pro-Democracy rebels. and a couple of other things which I can't remember offhand.There was a good interview with Garland in last month's Dredd Megazine which was a Dredd 3D special too.I hadn't realised that Megazine was doing new stories until pretty recently, thought it was mainly reprints for some reason.Might buy some future editions now.

film reminded me v strongly of something like enzo g castellari's bronx warriors - a suitably violent, properly exploitative, ersatz (european) approximation of america and american pop cult. movie also gave off a heavy death race 2000 vibe, p appropriate seeing that that was the main source for dredd's comic bk costumes/visuals.
thought the low budget showed in places - too many oppressively tiny sets and identikit corridors - and that the film needed a stronger supporting cast (more grotesque-sweaty british character actors, please.) also, in places the dialogue was a bit underpowered - it's faithful to the spirit of the comic bks, in that dredd isn't a zing-master, but lots of the dialogue exchanges still fell pretty flat, imho.

I wasn't super impressed by this... Yeah, some it had some nice action pieces, and it was cool so little time was wasted on origin story and stuff like that, but there was absolutely none of the social satire either. Like, if Dredd and the other Judges come off unambiguously as the the good guys, I don't think you've captured the essence of the comic. And even the action got a bit boring towards the end; I understand the budget was small, but there's only so much you can do with characters running through endless corridors.

Well yeah, I didn't mean the corrupt Judges, they're a cop movie cliche... What I meant was that here Dredd and Anderson and their employers were still forces of good, whereas in the original comics the dynamic is that whenever you start feeling Dredd and the Judges are heroes, there's always an issue or a storyline that reminds you they're fascist cops working for a fascist police state. And that wasn't in the movie, the social commentary was limited to a couple of throwaway jokes, like then panhandler scene. So Dredd felt more like a Dirty Harry style "tough but honest cop" story imported into the future than any kind of dystopian fiction.

Yeah, it's not utopia, but like I said this felt more like a "tough but honest cop in a violent world" type of story than one where the cops are part of the problem, not the solution. (Though TBH the comics aren't always very consistent on this subject either - in some stories the writers seem to be saying that Judges are necessary because everyone in Mega-City One is so crazy and violent.)
― Tuomas, Tuesday, 12 March 2013 12:41 (2 months ago) Permalink
I think that ambiguity is one of my favourite things about the comics - the Judges are fascist bastards but for the most part the population are feckless idiots who would likely not be any better off without them. Mega-City One voted to keep the Judge system in place when given the option to adopt a more democratic society, after all.
As I said upthread, I really liked this movie - I want to see it again now!

Anderson was a supporting character in Dredd who got her own series in the 1980s. In the comics Anderson and Dredd are friends (well, as much as anyone can be Dredd's "friend") and often work together, though there are similar moral quarrels (Anderson being far more liberal than Dredd) between them as in the movie. They usually collaborate when Judge Death and the Dark Judges are involved, because Anderson has a special connection to them, and was originally introduced in the same story as Judge Death.

The Dark Judges play the role of justifying Dredd's fascism and that of the Mega Cities' governments to some extent, don't they? Police state required to stave off the greater evil etc.?
― Neil S, Tuesday, 12 March 2013 14:44 (2 months ago) Permalink
I don't think so... The police state tends to be pretty powerless against the Dark Judges, it's usually a few courageous individuals who manage to defeat them. The Dark Judge stories are more typically good vs. evil kind of stories, instead of ones with social commentary or satire.
