It’s Wedding Bells For Judge Death In ‘Daily Dredds Volume 2′ [Preview]
I'm pretty sure that everyone reading this already knows that Judge Dredd runs every week in the pages of 2000 AD, but apparently that was not often enough for British audiences in the '80s and '90s. From 1981 to 1998, a daily Dredd comic strip ran in the UK's Daily Star, giving readers bite-size chunks of Mega-City One's most ruthless lawman. And they got weird.
Admittedly, it's not the weirdest I've ever seen from a comic strip --- that week-long "Alone" storyline in Garfield will forever hold that title --- but if you've been looking for the story about a beautiful woman who fell head over heels in love with the genocidal animated corpse that is Judge Death, here it is, reprinted at long last. Check out the first few pages below!
In addition to John Wagner, Alan Grant, and Ian Gibson’s "Bride of Death," the new collection also includes nine other stories from Wagner and Grant, with artists Barry Kitson, Steve Dillon, and Mike Collins, which ran between 1986 and 1988: "Weirdies!," "A Guide To Mega-City Law," "The Mean Machine!," "Vigilante," "Crime of Passion," "Fat City," "Undercity," "The Monster Maker," "The Cursed Earth," and "The Menagerie."
