Depicted above is the cover of Judge Dredd #2, published 30 years ago in 1983. You may have learned of the character from the two big budget forgettable films it spawned (one starring Sylvester Stallone as the title character, the other featuring Karl Urban in the role). But who is Judge Dredd? Of what judiciary does he call himself a member? Wikipedia tells us that he is “an American law enforcement officer in a violent city of the future where uniformed Judges are empowered to arrest, sentence, and execute criminals at the scene of crime.” So he’s a municipal judge? We have always wondered if Judge Dredd has a civil litigation counterpart. We’d watch that movie.
