Thirty-eight years of continuous weekly publication has given Judge Dredd fans a huge back catalog of stories to choose from. Mike & Greg flex some Multiver-City One muscles in this episode and take an in-depth look at ‘America,’ the shattering tale by Dredd co-creator John Wagner and artist Colin MacNeil that makes absolutely clear what separates Dredd from other comics action heroes. What makes it Wagner’s personal favorite and the top of so many “Best of Dredd” lists? How accessible is it to new readers? Are the sequels (1996’s ‘Fading of the Light’ and 2006’s ‘Cadet’) any good? Why isn’t Colin MacNeil a bigger name? Who was Victor Jara? What does an apology from Judge Dredd sound like, and what do you have to do to get one? All that and tons more in this week’s episode!
