Mega City Book Club 16: The Judge Child Quest

Judge Anon from Buenos Aires joins me over an occasionally crackly Skype line to discuss a legendary Dredd epic. We keep the spoilers to the minimum while we wax lyrical over the artistic talents of Bolland, McMahon and Smith, as well as Wagner and Grant's great story telling.

The Judge Child Quest is available in Case Files volume 4 from the 2000AD online store. You can find Anon's history of female Judges on his Tumblr site, and there are details of the simply splendid Zarjaz fanzine on the Quaequam blog.

    1. Yeah, I knew that was wrong as soon as I said it!

  2. Very insightful observations from both of you. You've given me a whole new perspective on the JCQ.

  3. Bit of a late comment (just doing research for the Otto Sump book, it JCQ takes place and is mentioned in the second story). We had been into space with Dredd previously, but only got as far as the moon, where we stayed for six months.
