Ah...I would go with Machine Law.

I don't find America a Judge Dredd story and I find better stories where Dredd acts like a baddie. Although Colin MacNeil artwork is a work of genius.

Machine Law was indeed very good, but it’s a tough draw going up against a classic like America. So America wins it for me. Just too iconic.

Yep, throwing my helmet in for America. Machine Law would hold its own against many others, but America is something special.
To tell the truth, you can all get screwed.

America.

Read by itself, collected with the other two America sequels, or as part of the larger Democracy story line, America is brilliant.

While Simon and Garfunkel is also an acceptable answer this is the best

America

Interesting match up.

Both stories written by John Wagner, both drawn (mostly) by Colin MacNeil. Both are deeply political, confront important ethical issues, and both ask the question 'Are the judges worthy of their authority?'.

From the votes so far, and both Colin and Alex's lists, I know I am in a distinct minority (waves at milstar) but I have never understood the outpouring of love for America. To me the story is slight, not that engaging and the ending is painted way too broad.

Machine Law on the other hand is articulate, consequential and very moving.

America.
Just a little rough and tumble, Judge man.

Closing tomorrow - so if you have anymore votes, or indeed songs called America get them in today and I'll count up in the morning.

Glad to find think-alike :)

Not epics so I’ll vote for the one which is an actual Judge Dredd strip. Machine Law.
