Following on from my previous series of posts about Judge Beeny's backstory (America, America II & Cadet, Tour of Duty) some scans from the latest mega-epic "Day of Chaos". Roughly ten pages beneath the cut.

Day of Chaos )

The aftershocks of Day of Chaos are only just beginning to play out in the latest progs, so what the future has in store for Dredd and Beeny we still don't know.

Since her origins in the America trilogy (see my recent posts here and here) Judge Beeny has become a recurring character in the Dredd comics, and played a major role in the "Tour of Duty" epic. Roughly 16 pages of scans beneath the cut.

Warnings: References to a mass-shooting incident.

The Continuing Adventures of Judge Beeny )

Beeny next appears in Megazine 300 in the one-off story Judgement Call, which [personal profile] skjam already posted some scans from here. After that comes the "Day of Chaos" mega-epic, which I'll cover in my next post.

Following on from my "America" post, some scans from the two sequels. "Fading of the Light" was published six years after the original story, and "Cadet" a decade after that. (Since the Dreddverse runs in more or less 1:1 time, the same amount of time passes in-universe between the stories.) 12 pages of scans beneath the cut.

Warnings: References to sexual assault and a euthanasia plotline.

America II: The Fading of the Light )

Next up: Beeny's part in the Tour of Duty saga.

For the Crowning Moments of Awesome theme, I give you "America", published in the first seven issues of the Judge Dredd Megazine, and generally agreed to be one of the absolute classic Dredd stories, if not the classic. 15 pages of scans beneath the cut. (The collected story runs 62 pages; I'm not fully certain how it was originally divided up into instalments, but have tried to use no more than 2-3 pages from each.)

Warnings: Graphic violence; dark themes including abuse of power by the authorities, forced abortion, and some creepy violating use of future medical technology.

America )

There were two sequels to the story published later, covered in my next post.

More Dredd! The third and final part of my series of posts on Dredd's family. (See links for parts one and two.) A tale of terrorist plots, cloning experiments gone wrong, Christmas gatherings and tea breaks.

About 20 pages of scans beneath the cut. (Warning for discussion of euthanasia, brief reference to a possible suicide attempt.)

Brothers of the Blood: Total War and Beyond )

Part two of my series of posts on Judge Dredd and his clones. (Part one is here.) These scans are all from the Brothers of the Blood TPB collection, a series of stories that follow the formation of Dredd's unlikely little family unit.

About 18 pages of scans beneath the cut.

Brothers of the Blood )

In part three: another clone, ups and downs in Dredd's relationship with his niece, and some gloriously awkward family Christmases.

Yep, three hundred monthly issues, twenty-five years of what can be called a niche product. Pretty amazing, actually.



Judgement Call )

By the by, if anyone has handy scans of the America storyline, that'd be interesting to see.

Also in this issue: "Lilly MacKenzie and the Mines of Charybdis", another of those hellworld stories the 2000 AD crew love so well--this one is an exposition chapter, with the action to start in #301.

"Armitage: The Unpleasantness at the Tontine Club": A murder mystery LARP goes horribly wrong when it turns out that someone has tricked people who aren't suicidal into signing up....

"Hondo City Justice": Like Judge Dredd, but in Japan. In addition to the killer schoolgirls in mini-skirts, there's a James Bond shoutout in the first couple of pages.

"Anderson: PSI Division: The House of Vyle": The popular Psi-Judge investigates weird goings-on in old Salem.

And a bunch of cool articles.

Oh, and it's a good thing I ordered this for my pull list--the FLCS was going to cancel it because nb one bought these things for the last few months.
