Judge Dredd: Blaze of Glory - paperback, 144 pages, 1st March 2022



Fast, furious and hysterically funny stories from the pen of Al Ewing (Marvel's Immortal Hulk), chronicling the highs and lows of Judge Dredd, Lawman of the Future. This action packed collection has an exclusive Liam Sharp (Green Lantern) cover.

I'd struggle to overstate how much I enjoy and admire Al Ewing's work [...] A typical Ewing story is technically ambitious, ethically astute, and intellectually playful. In short; great fun. - Sequart

Go on patrol and see Mega-City One - and beyond - through the eyes of Al Ewing (Immortal Hulk), one of the most original writers in comics, as Judge Dredd dispenses justice to mutants, laidback religious cults, the Sex Olympics and Santa Claus. But when polite ex-stripper Zombo appears in his dimension, has old Stoney Face finally met his match?

Collecting many of Ewing's outrageous Dredd stories for the first time and featuring an all-star cast of artists, including Liam Sharp (Green Lantern, Wonder Woman), John Higgins (Dreadnoughts: Breaking Ground, Judge Dredd, Watchmen), Simon Fraser (Judge Dredd, Nikolai Dante) and Ben Willsher (Roy of the Rovers, Judge Dredd), this is an essential collection for fans of the Law.

Other Reviews / Guatemala
« on: 07 July, 2021, 10:56:28 AM »
Guatemala arrived on Monday and I finished it off on Tuesday, and that's only because it's been a hectic week.  What a contrast to the IDW "False Witness" which I (s)lumbered through for a couple of weeks.

Guatemala is a fantastic story.  The way the robots treat the humans is chilling.  I love how Dredd manages to wind up the robot General (Uno or Dos or both?) so easily every time they speak.  I didn't realise the little sidekick droid was writing down his every word, until the end of the story.

The Mechanismo units are brilliant.  I love how Colin MacNeil draws them (all the art is excellent) with their spaced-out legs, grippy-claw feet and giant chins (which it only occurs to me writing here now, is of course a nod to Dredd).

It's great that Dredd is coming to accept the Mechanismos and I really liked them too; perhaps because Dredd accepts them now or perhaps simply because they are presented as a positive force.  They are really powerful and I can see what a force they would be.

El Presidente is a suitably evil and egotistical villain.  We seem him carried off, but not disposed of, so he could always make a return.  The Humanista revolutionaries say they will try to torture him, so he could definitely be being kept alive somewhere.

I was initially disappointed when I found out about Hershey's daughter and grandchildren - not another Judge who's had children.  Giant, Rico... it's everyone but Joe!  I was really pleased when the 'answer' was revealed.  And now there's a character around who looks just like Hershey.

A top story.  I would have liked it to have been longer, though the Bennett Beeny story is excellent too, not to mention we get some Ezquerra in the middle of the book too.  The Judge Dredd-Strontium Dog tale is okay but lightweight:  I'm not so interested in Cal turning up yet again.  And rookie mistake trusting a couple of Stix brothers.  Would you?
