I love the artwork in the whole series as it really does feel like watching Karl Urban in the cinematic universe, the character of Dredd looks fearsome and immense, which he should. And Anderson looks like she does in the films but with more spectacle around her as the artist has made her powers look exceptional. The supporting characters all look great with each robot having a unique design and they all look like they fit into this world. The backgrounds all look epic and exclusive, especially this standalone as a part of it is within Dredd's consciousness which makes for some really intense reading. The gun fire and blood splats all look really good, I would say better than the film as they have s much colour, definition and power to them. Each frame is like a perfectly crafted shot, each one unique and interesting. I love the looks of this comic.
The story on the other hand is a bit out there, as like I said previously we do enter Dredd's mind in a weird Matrix style device. The story does however really develop the character of Dredd, showing his pain and weakness and we even see Dredd wanting to die which is a massive shock. And we see Anderson desperately trying to do all she can to save her friend and bringing Dredd back from the edge of despair and back into the world of the living, where he is the law. The story does involve all of Dredd's past enemies in one big brutal battle in his mind which is interesting because it humanises Dredd and shows he does have compassion and remembers. And this comic goes to uncover that there is some unlawful things happening in the hierarchy of the judges.
Anyone who enjoyed the film or enjoys sci-fi/action should without a doubt pick up this comic and its series , actually everyone should pick up this comic and read it as it is simply amazing. The artwork alone should be reason enough to read it. Additionally to follow Dredd ding all he can to uphold the law and stay strong in rough times.
As a stand alone I would rate this 4/5, but as a complete series a big fat 5/5.
