Preview: It's Wedding Bells For Judge Death In 'Daily Dredds'
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.

The Ten Best Alan Moore Stories You've Probably Never Read
Any look back over Alan Moore's career is likely to overlook a lot of really great comics. Beyond the usual works that are typically rattled off as the highlights of his career are British works that never got big in America, independent comics that never got wide distribution, and reams of short stories that have fallen between the cracks. You might have read a few of them, but they're all worth a look. Alan Moore's greatest hits include Watchmen, Saga of the Swamp Thing, From Hell, Marvelman, The Killing Joke, V for Vendetta, Tom Strong, Supreme, Top Ten, Promethea, the hundreds of pages of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and a couple of the best Superman stories of all time, but as this list proves, there's a lot more to Moore.
