Judge Sadd: John Cullen Draws A Softer Side Of Mega City One

JudgeSad00

Just a few days ago during an interview about Cosmic Scoundrels, Matt Chapman mentioned that one of his favorite comics was 2000 AD's very own lawman of the future, Judge Dredd. This got me to wondering what would happen if Chapman's other co-creations, the cast of Homestar Runner, were mashed up with the Judges to give us characters like Judge Bad or, the one I wanted to see most of all, Judge Sad.

Sadly, we live in a world where that has yet to happen, but the good news is that artist John Cullen stepped up to the plate to provide the closest -- and most awesome -- equivalent: Judge Sadd, a grim-faced Mega City Judge who fights the scourge of future crime... with hugs.

Judge Not, Lest Ye Be Mezco’s Magnificent New Judge Dredd Figure

Mezco
Mezco

You might know Mezco from its diverse line of figures ranging from Axe Cop and the DC Universe to TV shows like Sons of Anarchy and Breaking Bad. While the company has mostly worked in the more standard (read: affordable) action figure market in the past, Mezco's new One:12 Collective line has a more high-end collector in mind.

Last year, Mezco announced its first One:12 Collective figure, Batman from The Dark Knight Returns. Now, ahead of Toy Fair 2015, the manufacturer has provided new images of the second figure in the One:12 Collective line--none other than Mega-City One's Judge Dredd.

Judge Dredd Animated Miniseries ‘Superfiend’ Promises That ‘Death Is Coming’ [Video]

SuperfiendPosterMain

Whether there's ever going to be an official sequel to 2012's Dredd is up in the air, but in the meantime, producer Adi Shankar is doing his best to keep the franchise going with a series of "bootleg" short films. The latest of the bunch is an animated miniseries called Superfiend, and it looks bananas.

Read The First Chapter Of Grant Morrison And Steve Yeowell’s ‘Zenith’ Right Here [Preview]

Morrison and Yeowell's Zenith, 2000 AD

I'm going to go ahead and assume that if you're reading this, you're probably already familiar with Grant Morrison. That said, even if you've gone back and read through everything from Animal Man on up trying to put together a comprehensive, unifying theory of his work, then there's still a piece of the puzzle that you might be missing: Zenith, the story about a teenage superhero that he and Steve Yeowell created in the pages of 2000 AD. Aside from a limited edition hardcover that sold out quick last year, it hasn't been reprinted until this week, when 2000 AD released it as the first title that they've ever simultaneously printed on both sides of the Atlantic.

‘Predator Vs. Judge Dredd Vs. Aliens’ Is Exactly As Awesome As It Sounds [Review]

Judge Dredd vs. Predator

There are a lot of things that happen regularly in comics that I've never really understood, and chief among them has been the sheer number of superhero crossovers with Aliens and Predator. I mean, I understand wanting to see Aliens and Predators fight each other because they're both these mysterious, lethal alien enemies, where one's a cunning, vicious hunter and the other's an almost mindless biologically driven killing machine, a natural contrast that makes them cool opponents for each other and a deadly combination for anyone who gets trapped between them. The thing I don't get is why you'd want to throw Superman or Batman in there, if only because of the sheer amount of storytelling gymnastics you have to do to make it work. And yet, they happen all the time, and I have long since accepted that it's Just Not My Thing.

And then I read Predator vs. Judge Dredd vs. Aliens, and now I get it. Mostly because the first story in this collection ends with Dredd taking off his shirt (while leaving his helmet on, of course), and fighting the Predator with a knife.

Buy This Book: 2000 AD #1900 Hopes To Lure In New Readers With ‘Great Stories’ Gimmick

AD01

The way I've always understood anthology series is that you never want every story to end at the same time, because the idea is that by chaining everything together, the reader never has a chance to jump off. That might sound mercenary, but really, it's just simple economics: If everything you're into ends all at once, then you've got a lot less incentive to come back for the next issue. Right? Right.

Well, it seems that last week's issue of 2000 AD went against that little bit of conventional wisdom by capping off every story that they had going so that they could set up this week's offering: Their 1900th issue, which celebrates the milestone by launching three new stories, and provides a perfect jumping-on point. If you haven't been reading 2000 AD and want to see what all the fuss is about, this is the issue to get -- and you should definitely get it, because all three stories are pretty awesome.

The ‘Dredd’ Movie’s Comic Book Sequel Gets A Third Printing, This One With A Cover By Trevor Hairsine

Dredd: Underbelly third printing by Trevor Hairsine

2012's Dredd, based on the long-running comic about the stone-faced lawman of the future from the pages of 2000 AD, was essentially Die Hard in one of Mega City One's towering city blocks, which is to say that it was completely awesome. Karl Urban and Olivia Thirlby's performances as Judges Dredd and Anderson, respectively, were fantastic, and left both long-time Dredd readers and new fans wanting to see more from them, which is why Arthur Wyatt and Henry Flint provided a comic book sequel set in the world of the movie called Underbelly, where Dredd had to tackle a new drug that gave crooks the ability to see into the future.

Underbelly was a pretty huge success. The first and second printings both sold out at the distributor level, and this October, it's getting a third, featuring a new cover by artist Trevor Hairsine.
