Coming off of the epic Volume 2 which contained two incredibly important storylines, The Cursed Earth & The Day The Law Died, Volume 3 features shorter, more self contained stories and a sense of reassurance that the writing staff is now viewing the comic as "old hat".

Contained in the volume are as follows:

Vienna- a story containing the biggest plot hole imaginable with Dredd's niece sired from the loins of his evil brother Rico. Obviously the writers forgot that all Judges, former or current, are celibate. This was later fixed with Rico having relations with one of the workers on the prison planet Titan.

City Block- introduces the concept of the towering, self-contained "Celebrity Named" apartment complexes.

Tales From Walter's Scrapbook- two really fantastic stories featuring everyone's favorite lisping wobot Walter as told by him to other robots at the laundromat.

The Forever Crimes- a "who dun it?" style strip about wealthy elderly people who are put in stasis to help preserve whatever precious moments they have left. This was also featured as a free online strip on 2000 AD's webpage for a time.

Father Earth- Mutant environmental extremists from The Cursed Earth seek to push Mega-City 1 onto the brink of extinction. One of the two "epics" in the volume.

The Guinea Pig That Changed the Law- Story revolving about experimentation on animals

Night Of The Fog- A strange series of murders has been taking place in District 6, really great twist ending

Battle For The Black Atlantic- Features the return of the sinister Soviet Judges of East Meg 1 in a plot gain control of Mega City 1 after their shameful defeat during the Luna-City Olympic Games (see Complete Case Files 01).

I was a bit disappointed with the lack of long stories in Complete Case Files 3 but this one more than makes up for it.

About 1/3 of book 4 is the epic Judge Child Quest where Dredd mush find a young boy prophicized to save Mega City One. The search takes him across the radioactive ruins of the Cursed Earth and then into space. The adventures are a bit random but have their moments and the ending makes good use of Dredd's trademark inflexibility for a good twist. It also introduces the Angel Gang, a group of classic Dredd foes.

Later in the book we get some medium-length stories with the Pirates of the Black Atlantic and the return of the Angel Gang.

The rest of the book is filled with a variety of hit or miss short stories usually with a bit of satire mixed in. The art is also hit or miss, there are some stories by the great Brian Bolland or Ian Gibson but others just don't measure up.

For the stories that were originally black and while the reproduction remains excellent, but for the ones that were in color (usually just a page or two at a time) this reprint is a bit muddy. It looks like they were reprinted from the final printed pages rather than the original art.

So for your $20 you get some great stories and some mildly entertaining ones, I enjoyed it. But I'm really looking forward to seeing the Block War/Apocalypse War double feature in the next book.

Format: Paperback
Like any “complete collection” of comic books, there are some stinkers in the lot (which are mostly concentrated in the beginning of this book). But once you get past this lot, the rewards are plentiful.

Offbeat characters illustrated by cream of the early Judge Dredd artists and mostly written by John Wagner (of A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE fame), this volume kickstarts a multitude of story threads which would populate the pages of 2000AD and Judge Dredd Megazine for decades to come.

Oddball stories featuring anything from addictive candy to seed-grown aliens are littered liberally in between a massive mutant spider invasion, the future of televised ‘reality’ entertainment and the requisite dinosaurs-eating-people stories. As much fun as many of these escapades are, the true killer of the collection is the Bolland/Wagner collaboration, “Judge Death.”

The interdimensional Judge hits all of its marks with polished perfection. It’s utterly brilliantly drawn and designed, creepy, hilarious, and it also manages to hit some poignant notes amidst all the chaos. It introduces Judge Anderson of the PSI division (who would later get her own publication) and even calls back to an earlier one-shot story to come up with a clean resolution, giving in a nice treat to longtime fans.

It is long past high time that these affordable black-and-white collections are being released in the U.S. While the writing would continue to improve in leaps, the characters and the world they inhabit would become more defined, there is something intrinsically great about the kitchen sink approach in these early “progs.”

Do yourself a favor, citizen.
