Title: What are the Most Cyberpunk like stories of Dredd or other 2000ad stories?
Post by: metalmarc on 12 November, 2017, 12:52:10 pm
On a bit of a Cyberpunk kick at the moment (this year we had gits live action, bladerunner 2049, Blame! Was On netflix, battle angel alita live action movie is coming soon, Deus Ex Mankind divided was recent as well as ruiner game and still awaiting Cyberpunk 2077 from cdpr in the near future! Etc)

I know all of Judge Dredd is Cyberpunk/Dystopian

But what are the stories that most resemble something out of Bladerunner or that futuristic Neo Noire type setting or stuff related to the above to read?

Technically it could be all of it, but if you had to pick a few to read.

If you haven't already read them, I think you'd really dig the Dreddworld spin-offs Simping Detective, Lenny Zero and Low Life - all extremely 'Noir', for the most part... The likes of Marauder and Bato Loco also have a great line in 'seedy underbelly' type stuff.

Thanks added to wishlist

Don't know what 'cyberpunk' means... but perhaps Night Zero and its sequels. Noirish, enjoyable stuff.

HARDWARE is the most cyberpunk like story that is like a Dredd or 2000ad story, and there was a legal case to prove it.

Visually, I think the stories most like Bladerunner (not seen the new one yet) would be those illustrated by Will Simpson, before he went off to do Game of Thrones...

That first book of Universal Soldier --the one with the Will Simpson art-- was pure quill, main street cyberpunk what with the brain implants & shadow-y mega-corp pulling strips in the background.

Milligan and Dayglo's Counterfeit Girl is an obvious recent cyberpunk story.

Spurrier and Elson's 'The Scrap' fits the bill pretty well, too.

I'd throw Ewing & Holdens 'Dead Signal' in there as well.

Have we all forgotten 'Wireheads'…?

(God knows, I've tried…)

In a similar vein, I once read something where Pat Mills pointed out that the aesthetic he and Kevin O'Neill used for Nemesis the Warlock (especially The Gothic Empire) would be called Steam Punk today although the term didn't exist at the time of creation.

That's your Kris Kindle sorted, Jim.

Willaim Gibson recent wrote a comic: Archangel, which was rather good, but with some poorly executed art.
Maybe TMO shold get him to write for the prog...  :-X
