Mega-City One, 2130 AD. This vast urban nightmare on the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America is home to 400 million citizens, every one a potential criminal. With lawlessness rife, only the Judges can prevent total anarchy. These future lawmen are judge, jury and executioner. Toughest of them all is Judge Dredd - he is the law!
Inspired by Clint Eastwood in Dirty Harry; the film poster for Death Race 2000. The name Judge Dredd came from Pat Mills who was originally going to use it for a different character.
The first Judge Dredd story published was drawn by Mike McMahon, not co-creator Carlos Ezquerra. Ezquerra was so upset that he didn't draw Dredd for five years afterwards, only returning for the Apocalypse War mega-epic.
