Judge Dredd - The Cursed Earth

I promised that if I couldn’t find a party to latch on to for New Year’s Eve, I spend the first few hours of 2013, uploading and story-timing this Judge Dredd saga instead. Since the former hasn’t been possible (??_??) and it’s now January where I am, here you go.
This is the first major Judge Dredd epic. The series had been going for thirteen months when this story began and in that year we had seen Dredd put down a robot uprising, kill his renegade clone brother, become judge-marshal of Luna-1 for three months, before returning to Earth and staying in Mega-City One for a fortnight before volunteering for a mission into the post-apocalyptic atomic wasteland that lies between the former USA’s east and west coasts.
This story is basically a road movie involving rampaging dinosaurs, vampire robots, alien slave catchers, homicidal mutant clans, gigantic corporate mascots and Ronald McDonald. It’s the first full Dredd saga I read in TPB format and while I admit that it reads as quite dated compared to the more modern Dredd, the story deals with many issues and much history that has been coming back to haunt him and his city for over thirty years since. It’s funny, imaginative and rough as hell. I’m sure many of you will enjoy it.
And yes, we are including the banned chapters that you won’t find in any reprinting. Have fun.
