Having tucked into Dredd for a nice 90 odd minute run time I came out not quite the husk of embittered fan boy rage I’d expected. particularly after my fan boy breakdown that followed the Danny Cannon/Sly Stallone version of the 90′s. This version was a faithful, visceral, hyper violent, dystopian and utterly uncompromising wrecking ball of a movie and I’m honestly still reeling from my euphoric glee at a genuinely well portrayed version of a very black and white character.
Under Pete Travis eye and Alex Garland’s pen Karl Urban did the fans proud, and now more than ever 2000AD, the galaxy’s one time Greatest Mag needs to capitalise the shit out of this big success and make Dredd relevant again in it’s pages (and not just via their merger with IDW). I have ideas on this, that along with the mysterious mind of the mad man known as Majestic will soon come to fruition. Stay tuned over on http://www.badhaven.com/
