Dredd versus Werewolves.

Mega-City One – a vast urban nightmare built upon the post-apocalyptic ashes of North America’s east coast. Beneath her lies the ‘Undercity’ – ruined remains of what was once known as New York City. Now it is a deadly environment where only the most ruthless creatures can hope to survive. One such creature – a flesh-eating werewolf, has managed to find its’ way out into Mega-City One, so Judge Dredd must go down into the Undercity to investigate, ensuring that no others can make their way to the surface. Plus three other Dredd-verse werewolf stories.
John Wagner is, to many fans, the very heart of 2000 AD. Involved from the earliest days of the “Galaxy's Greatest Comic”, he co-created Judge Dredd, as well as a host of other series, including the critically-acclaimed Button Man. Incredibly prolific throughout his career, and writing under a diversity of pen names — often in concert ...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Werewolves and a vampire Reason for Reading: I love the Judge Dredd universe! While the title may have you thinking differently, this book has no paranormal activity until the very last one-off story. The book begins with the titular story from the '80s which is 7 parts long and almost half the book in length. "Werewolves" have found their way into Mega-City from the Undercity, their existence is based upon science, chemicals to be exact. I loved this story, very well done and written by Wagner & Grant. The book is published in b/w up to this point. Then we jump ahead to the 2000s for a direct sequel to this story. From here the art in the book is full colour. I also loved this sequel written by Wagner but I found the art very strange. Even though the publisher's summary tells us 3 other werewolf stories are included, these two which make up half the book are the only true "werewolf" stories. The rest of the book contains two somewhat thematically related one-offs. First is a story set in the Cursed Earth which features bounty hunters who are mutants descended from Navajo spiritwalkers and are permanently in humanoid dog form. This introduces (to me) a great female character named Quadrille, I hope she shows up again. Finally, is "Asylum" which involves the Psi-Division and a paranormal creature, a vampire. This is the first time I've met up with Psi Judge Karyn but I liked her and I found the story creepy but unexpected when the theme is supposed to be werewolves. A good collection of some of the stranger tales one can find within the Dredd universe. I prefer the proper crime stuff myself but am not against the weirder storylines at all. Good book for the Halloween season.
