Has the ''Burger Law'' ever been reprinted?
« on: 04 January, 2011, 08:53:56 PM »
Anywhere?
Got this off of the comics.org site ''Only the first two pages are in colour. This is one of very few vintage Judge Dredd stories never to have been reprinted, with the owners of the trademarked characters used not happy and only agreeing not to take any further action after an agreement that the stories would never see print again. More recently legal letters have been sent to webpages presenting the story online.''

Indeed - can't be reprinted. Mind you, in my opinion, The Cursed Earth epic doesn't really suffer from it's omission. They're the only chapters (as far as I know?) not written by Pat Mills, and even though they were written by Wagner (& Jack Adrian?) I reckon that they're the weakest chapters. Some great McMahon art though.

I can't believe they're still pursuing this! How petty.

But no, they've never made it into any of the reprints - I have the earliest 2-part collected Cursed Earth published by Titan, and  they were omitted from that, with an explanation in the introduction about the legal reasons.

That might depend on who the letters are from.

The old Geocities site with cuttings from the banned Dredd's still exists in archive.

If you are willing to trawl through things like torrents other P2P shenanigans, all of the original burger wars issues have been scanned and uploaded alongside other early 2000AD issues. Apart from buying the issues off collectors this is probably the only way to read them.
Everything I know about life, I learnt from old school hip-hop. Don't sweat the technique!

If you are trawling through the torrent sites don't forget to check out the Dredd's from Progs 77 and 78 at the same time the 'Soul Food' storyline got caught up in the same brouhaha. Some lovely Bolland art in that one.

Burger Wars was brilliant.
