Who could have imagined that 35 years later he [Judge Dredd] would still be patrolling the streets of the vast future city known as Mega-City One?

CARLOS EZQUERRA BBYack in 1977, when I was asked by writer John Wagner and Pat Mills (creators of the forthcoming SF comic 2000 AD) to visualize a character called Judge Dredd, who could have imagined that 35 years later he would still be patrolling the streets of the vast future city known as Mega-City One? Or still arousing feelings of love, fear, and awe among the readers? 35 years and still going strong. Perhaps all that has changed in that time is that what was originally a pure science fiction character could today easily be a part any number of police forces from authoritarian regimes around the globe. A particularly special aspect of Dredd is that even though throughout his long printed life he has been drawn by dozens of artists from all over the worldeach with his own distinctive stylethe character has always remained true to his original conception. He is the sturdy reed that will not bend, the rock that will not crack. He is the LAW and you better believe it! Carlos Ezquerra January 2013
