Uncanny! :o

Wee Stevie Yaxley-Lennon could only dream of being such a charismatic arch-villain, rather than the snidey little petty crook he really is.

If he was born in 2150, he is minus 132.  Z

Also, only 14 years before another Nuclear war in the Dredd-verse :)

When Britain gets nuked so hard that Brit Cit disappears and all pre-Megacity towns grow back again.

Exactly. Having already established that a live Booth would be a rallying point for anti-judge groups, Dredd leaves his judge-killing biological son alive. It makes absolutely no sense.

Gotta say it's a real thrill to see two local Belfast lads and Belfast Sector 13 group members: Mark McCann and Adam Brown having a future shock printed this week.  Adam has done two covers recently also for the Megazine. Well done guys. Z

I had a chat with Mark at Lawgiver too and he never mentioned any of this! Well done lads, it is nice to have a new pair of droids commissioned.

good interview with Ian Gibson. Hopefully its the start of a thawing in the relationship there. I'd still like to see him get something back in the prog or meg. Even a cover or one-shot

Doesn't the precedent mean it makes even less sense?! Booth later came back at the head of an army and explicitly taunted Dredd about what a terrible and ineffectual judgement he'd made by simply leaving him in the Cursed Earth - why would Dredd go and make the same mistake a second time?

Reversing a death with time travel has already been shown not to work (in Rage) - death finds a way of claiming its own.


Is that a Time Drogue?  They've never been presented as anything other than a short-term fix (like, 30 seconds).

 Johnny tracks a bloke who can help him get on the trail of Max Bubba, but he arrives at the bar just in time to see his lead killed as a result of cheating at cards. He uses a time drogue to undo the murder and questions his lead. Then Johnny simply walks off - the man thanks him for saving his life, but Johnny tells him not to bother. Sure enough, the cheating comes to light again (though in a different way) and the lead's murdered a second time as Johnny leaves. The third-person narration explicitly talks about Death never letting itself be cheated out of what it's owed.

It does explain why, in a universe chock full of time weapons, nobody ever so much as attempts to use them to undo death - it must be (fairly) common knowledge that it simply won't stick.

Dredd leaving Linus in the Cursed Earth also seemed strange

Not sure this made much sense either, but there's precedent:



Yeah, that's how I read it too

Dredd left Booth in the Cursed Earth after considering that he had served a third of his 100 year suspended animation sentence and put him to work on the farm to give something back i.e. to rebuild a little of the world he had destroyed.

Plus he was in the middle of a mercy mission and presumably didn't want any passengers. (Although there would have been nothing to stop him going back for him later).

Linus, on the other hand is a current perp, having been the instigator of a plot against the Judges. Dredd doesn't even leave him in the charge of someone in the Cursed Earth, he just literally leaves him there. What is to stop him from further plots against the Judges? Presumably nothing as I guess we shall see in later installments.
