What is WRONG with you people?! For years, I've been trying to get you graphic novels readers to try collections of Judge Dredd strips (and others taken from Judge Dredd's parent anthology comic: 2000 A.D.), but it's been like convincing a Paul McCartney fan who's never heard the Beatles to give the Fab Four a listen, and always coming up against a brick wall. Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman, Dave Gibbons, Grant Morrison, Garth Ennis, Steve Dillon, Mark Millar, and a host of now-famous artists and writers honed their various crafts working on Judge Dredd and other 2000 A.D. characters.
Its time to forgive and forget the Stallone movie, folks! Besides, Judge Dredd graphic novels are closer in spirit and tone to RoboCop and Futurama than the film that actually bears the character's name.
So now you have no excuse: The current batch of collections are affordable and beautiful. The classic strips have never looked better, and they're printed in chronological order from Day One (but I'd start with Volume 3).
As Mega City One's toughest lawman would say, "Ignorance of the law is NO excuse, creep!"

Eric Mozilo presents and signs The Bug Inside
We are all good at something, and instead of investing our time and energy in “outsourcing” for inspiration or motivation, the time would be better spent investigating and exploring our own abilities and talents. Teach our children that it is up to them, and no one else, to achieve greatness.
Eric will be presenting The Bug Inside I, II, and III!
Chi Hosseinion presents and signs U Touch I Tell
Have fun with Kiara and her classmates as they go on a field trip to learn a very important lesson. Children of all ages will enjoy learning the U Touch I Tell chant.
