The Four Dark Judges... Plus nine more?
« on: 11 February, 2014, 08:45:10 AM »
I'm not sure what to make of all this...  Everyone loves Judge Death; Fear, Fire and Mortis were great additions, but I didn't even particularly like the Sisters of Death, so nine new Dark Judges seems to be over-egging the pudding somewhat.

Yup.

From what's been said with that bunch, the less you know about them, the more effective they seem to be.

I think having anonymous Dark Judge Drones could have worked, but nine more in the vein of Judge Choke?

Skullmo and I figured this out last night. The other nine are:

Judge Choke
Judge Bruise
Judge Internal Bleeding
Judge IBS
Judge Near Miss
Judge Static Shock
Judge Sharp Slap
Judge Funny Bone
Judge Piles

Sadly, Judge Cramp didn't quite make the grade!

Yeah, read that last night and nearly choked.
Don't know if I'm against the idea of more Dark Judges just cause its IDW Dredd, or if it's how I really feel.

By the way, I have vague recollections of different Dark Judges (Judge 'Drac', 'Hate'...?) in a Dredd story from an alternate Judda dimension. Think Brett Ewins drew it, can't quite recall.

I still betting we'll be getting one new Dark Judge of our own in a few months- PJ Maybe.

I'm not sure what to make of all this...
A paper aeroplane, a jaunty hat or maybe kindling ?
I feel a bit dirty for enabling IDW by maintaining my subscription to the main strip and now morbid fascination means I'll probably continue. It's all a bit Mark Millar isn't it. What's better than 4 Dark Judges, lets have 13.

Maybe it's all part of some 'Amps to Eleven' mockumentary and we've all been cleverly duped.

Nigel: The Dark Judges all go to thirteen. Look, right across the board, thirteen, thirteen, thirteen and...
Martin: Oh, I see. And most people agree that there should just be four?
Nigel: Exactly.
Martin: Does that mean they're scarier? Are they any scarier?
Nigel: Well, more are scarier, aren't they? It's not four. You see, most Dark Judging, you know, will be done with four. You're on four here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on four with your Dark Judging. Where can you go from there? Where?
Martin: I don't know.
Nigel: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do?
Martin: Put it up to thrirteen.
Nigel: Thriteen. Exactly. Nine scarier.
Martin: Why don't you just make four scarier and make four be the top number and make that a little scarier?
[Pause.]
Nigel: These go to thirteen.

Where's the like button dammit. Maybe Nigel could be one of the Dark Judges, what with the tshirt he's wearing in that scene.

Ha Ha! Funneh.

Coincidenatally, I was thinking recently that in order to become a serious threat to Mega City One, the Dark Judges would have to increase their numbers. Surely it took more than four of them to completely wipe out the entire population of Deadworld? A few more could be drafted in to help out in MC1.

Imagine the scenes as huge swathes of undead, unkillable murder-machines rampaged through the streets, bringing jusssstice to all.
Raised in the wild by sarcastic wolves.

Previously known as L*e B*tes. Sshhh, going undercover...

Hmm, not keen on this.

I'd bet money on one of them being 'Judge Ice'.
