Judge Dredd: Mega City Two #1 was one fun book to read! The first impressions sold me immediately, with artist Ulises Farinas’ ultra detail in the city shots, instantly bringing Geoff Darrow and the late, lamented, Seth Fisher, to mind.

But Farina has got his own look and the detail expressed in the environments is sharply contrasted with the simplicity of his figure illustrations. I should note that the city shots contain lots of gags, like the “Van Halen Expressway” and “Stallone Megway” signs and the neon “Carl’s Sagan jr” restaurant.

Douglas Wolk’s story places Judge Dredd in Mega City Two, where they do things “differently,” such as using “friendly bullets.” Some clever ideas are introduced, and a fun vibe, largely aided by the day-glo coloring of Ryan Hill, is maintained throughout. We’re also introduced to Dredd’s Mega City Two opposite — so opposite that we even see his face, and there’s an intriguing reveal at the end.

All in all, this is a book is a blast, and worth picking up.
