Staff Picks (Nov13): Dredd — Underbelly (Movie Sequel)
Oct 18, 2013
Publisher: Rebellion/2000 AD
Judge Dredd, Britain’s poster child of justice, is seeing a resurgence these days, most recently with the film adaptation Dredd, starring Karl Urban as the titular man himself. The movie has been a long-time-coming with Dredd fans, but now Rebellion continues the momentum with a straight-to-comic sequel.
Following the events of the film, the urban gangs that terrorize Mega City One are as rampant as ever and an influx of mutant bodies are piling up, indicating a possible smuggling operation. With the help of his rookie partner, Psi-Judge Anderson, it’s just another day for Judge Dredd on the toughest police beat of the future.
Written and illustrated by veteran 2000 AD/Judge Dredd regulars, Arthur Wyatt and Henry Flint, respectively, this comic sequel is an obvious read for fans of Judge Dredd and the recent Dredd film alike. Dredd has received positive reviews and a cult following among movie fans, inciting a strong online campaign for a film sequel. It’s obvious that Dredd’s fans are growing and Rebellion is ready to feed that itch for more content.
