Title: Dark Judges - Fall of Deadworld Vol. 1
Post by: abelardsnazz on 07 January, 2018, 11:24:16 pm
I bought a copy of this with some money I got for Christmas and just finished reading it. It really is horrifically good. We all know the outcome, but getting there is expertly told by Kek-W, and Dave Kendall's art is so rich you can almost taste the decay. It flows together really well in one volume, with Dreams of Deadworld, which started it all off, concluding the book, my favourite of these remains Mortis. Looking forward to more.

There's nothing in that first post that could be considered a spoiler, unless you consider a book's contents (as in, the stories it compiles) a spoiler.

Fair point well made, but that doesn't change the ending THEY ALL DIE  :D

Will probably pick this one up. Really liked them in the prog.

Haven't read the follow up Cursed. As good?

I got a copy myself, after seeing it in the flesh. It's a really lovely book. As for how the story ends, who knows? We know the ultimate fate of Deadworld (or at least we think we do), but in that world anything could happen to the protagonists.

I really liked it's world building. I don't remember if most of it where in Wagner's young death or Grant's Anderson in imaginary pre-death world story, but I quite liked how the judges are fed meds in order to become grim. I think it would be cool if such thing was hinted at in Dredd's dimension. Would make sense, especially after Day of Chaos. I remember some judge in Tour of duty having some pill problems.

Intriguing as well with the judge child, Childs. See what becomes of her. See if she's anything like Krysler.

Cool to have this story being told at the same time as Wagner's Dark Justice: Dominion. I imagine the fall of death world books to sit nicely in the beginning of my mega collection, and the dark justice books in the end of it :)

I didn't have the cash when I saw it on Saturday, but I too was sold by a quick scan through: it'll be the next book I buy, just gorgeous (in a hideously ugly way).
