The 2000 AD ABC #53: Judge Dredd

The history of Mega-City One's greatest lawman in just three minutes - watch it, creep!

10 months ago

He is the law and you better believe it, creeps! We meet the fascist lawman of the future, Judge Dredd!

Created by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra, Dredd is 2000 AD’s most popular and most widely recognised character – a totalitarian policeman in Mega-City One, a vast, crowded, crime-ridden American megalopolis from 122 years in the future.

With draconian powers of summary execution or extreme sentences for the smallest of crimes, Dredd’s distinctive uniform and no-nonsense brand of law enforcement are part dystopian sci-fi, part satire on law-and-order politics, and part black comedy!
