I can't get no sleep
« on: 03 December, 2002, 09:19:33 PM »
Now, I realise this is a bit late and I'm sure I've missed another thread discussing the same thing, but I really, really enjoyed Gordon Rennie's Dredd story about him hitting the boozer on his time off. Just the kind of one-off I like, and one of Mr Rennie's best yet.
That is all.

Loved the line about the locals in the pub not being model citizens but also not being total scumbags either, showed a more understanding streak to dredd and also reminded me of the locals in my local boozer

I didn't like it. The line about bribing a judge was very clever though.

Dredd shouldn't question his actions too much. And seeing what he's thinking should be rare too, he's more of a mystery that way. Does he care? Is he human?

Still a fine story. (Gordon does the site after all!)

Aheheh.

Just the kind of one off i like. Makes me think of the time Dredd went for a dump.

Now THAT was class!

I have been emailing tharg for ages asking for dredd to have a more human side, its boring to see the same old 'your judged' each week.

The odd strip like this gives dredd a lot more depth.
