“Technology is failing all over Mega-City One, causing blackouts, explosions, radiation leaks and other nasty surprises. . . leaving Dredd stranded in the middle of a vicious block war, with no backup or reinforcements.
It’s just a Judge and his Lawgiver against overwhelming odds-that is, until his Lawgiver seemingly becomes sentient, and begins to disagree with Dredd’s judgements!“
So, why am I keen to see more? The story so far is showing the seeds of a technological uprising. Not just robots, as has been shown in earlier stories, but everything tech based. In this future, that means that even doors and your own gun can decide they don’t want to play. This leaves Dredd in a perilous position, as his Lawgiver decides to acquire a sense of humour as he tries to take on several mercenaries and a bodyguard robot gone wrong. If such basic tools can stop working, or do something unexpected, what can be trusted? Here’s hoping we’ll get to Dredd have to literally take things into his own hands.
We also have Chapter 5 of the ongoing look into Dredd’s history, this time looking into the history of the Dredd’s Lawgiver side arm. Yet again a well written piece and a pleasure to read each month.
