To put it mildly, JudgeDredd has had a rough couple of years. His city's been put through the wringer yet again, he's questioning the justice system, and crime shows no sign of slowing down no matter how many times he shoots it with high explosives. Fortunately for him, Douglas Wolk and Ulises Farinas have stepped up to send him on a vacation this January in Judge Dredd: Mega City Two, a new miniseries from IDW where Mega City One's most famous lawman takes a trip to the West Coast to see what post-apocalyptic California has to offer.
To find out about the series, we spoke with Wolk, a long-time Dredd fan, about why he loves the series, what the inspiration was for (re)building Mega City Two, how he's rewriting the book with Farinas as he goes, and what stories new Dredd readers should check out.
Here at ComicsAlliance, we love pretty much all things Judge Dredd (with maybe oneexception). We're also admirers of the work of illustrator Ulises Farinas. As such, any combination of the two is going to pique our interests, so when we found out Farinas and colorist Ryan Hill would be teaming up with writer -- and Judge Dredd historian -- Douglas Wolk on an upcoming Judge Dredd miniseries for IDW and 2000 AD, we were intrigued. And if this early piece of promotional art is any indication, readers are in for a treat.

In that spirit, ComicsAlliance's Matt Wilson is asking comics creators, retailers and commentators some big questions of his own.
There's a bit of a ComicsAlliance teamup over at Wired, where CA contributor Douglas Wolk forecasts a bleak future for the printed monthly comic book in an increasingly digital world, in a piece that includes typically astonishing illustration by occasional CA artist Ulises Farinas. Wolk calls the weekly pull list of pamphlet comics a "dying tradition" whose customers have been "trickling away for year
