Tuesday means that Thwip! goes “retro” and talks about collections/storylines that we think were awesome (and still are) – today we talk about the 2000AD and DC collaborative effort in collecting the various Judge Dredd/Batman crossovers that have happened over the years.
I love me some Judge Dredd. I do like Batman as well.
So these two meeting is a match made in nerd-heaven.
The comics, mainly written and arted by 2000AD veterans, is basically a collection of stories that have the absurd, surreal Judge Dredd DNA with a pinch of Batman thrown in. They are fantastic, they are weird, they are stylish as fuck (artists Simon Bisley and Glen Fabry have such a unique spin in their art style that you either love ’em or hate ’em, but you definitely respect ’em), and they are fun (remember when comics were fun?).
There are several long-form stories and a couple of quick shorts as well, meaning that you get a nice variety of stories for you to enjoy (trust me, you will enjoy them).
This is pretty much the best way to read these two classic comic icons meeting (there are some older TPBs that collect the individual stories, but they are long out of print), so go out and treat yourself, you deserve it you beautiful geek.
