DANCE OF THE DREDD
Prisoner" is the subject of an in-depth seven page article in the latest
issue of "Judge Dredd Megazine". Written by Alistair McGown and
profusely illustrated with photographs and artwork, the article covers the
background to the TV series, runs through the episodes, and also focuses on
the spin-off "Prisoner" novels and comic strips. Bringing
us bang up to date it also mentions Rob Fairclough's Prisoner scripts book, and The Unmutual Website.
Prisoner" is an appropriate feature for the Megazine. With Judge Dredd
being a future cop in a totalitarian state, issues of personal freedom versus
state control are often the themes of the comic strips.
Judge Dredd Megazine recently celebrated its 15th anniversary (although the character of Dredd dates back to 1977) and in recent years began running articles on media subjects such as this month's "Prisoner" retrospective. Judge Dredd Megazine #238 is on sale 19th October until 15th November from WH Smiths and other newsagents in the UK at £4.50 for 84 pages. Official website: http://www.2000adonline.com/
