Judge Dredd: Control

Part of Judge Dredd
Published by 2000 AD
Distributed by Simon & Schuster

The psychopathic SJS Judge Pin murders officers that fall short of her standards, and Judge Dredd is in her sights in this collection of stories featuring flesh-eating Kleggs, hijacking ape gangs and out of control war robots reprogrammed by insane accountants in tales ranging from deathly serious to outrageously funny, all from one of the most popular contemporary Dredd writer/artist teams; Rob Williams and Chris Weston.

Chris Weston has drawn a vast array of 2000 AD and Megazine stories, including Indigo Prime, Downlode Tales, Future Shocks, Canon Fodder, Judge Dredd, Nemesis the Warlock, Nikolai Dante, Pulp Sci-Fi, Robo-Hunter, Rogue Trooper and Vector 13. Beyond 2000 AD, Weston’s work includes Fantastic Four: First Family, Enemy Ace: War in Heaven, The Filth, The Invisibles, Ministry of Space and Garth Ennis’s War Story: Johann’s Tiger.

Rob Williams is the writer of Suicide Squad and Martian Manhunter for DC Comics, Unfollow for Vertigo and Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor for Titan Comics. His previous work for 2000 AD includes Judge Dredd: Titan, The Grievous Journey Of Ichabod Azrael (And The Dead Left In His Wake) and The Ten-Seconders, and he is currently writing Roy of the Rovers for Rebellion.

"Williams and Weston deliver again and again ... another essential Dredd volume for your collection." - comicon.com

"Can we just stop whatever we’re doing for a moment and talk about Chris Weston? This guy knows how to draw some comics." - Tegan O'Neil, The Comics Journal

"Ferociously intelligent, brutal, and yet interspersed with moments of sublime beauty. Dredd's world has never looked better, or felt more horrific." Ian Dunt, journalist and writer politics.co.uk, How To Be A Liberal

"A great collection of Dredds by Williams & Weston. Hard to pick a favourite, but I think the sad Klegg carries the day. Highly recommended." - Garth Ennis, writer The Boys, Preacher

"Gaze into the fist of Dredd" was the classic, but with Rob Williams we gaze into the mind of Dredd" - Rowan Hooper, journalist New Scientist

"an all-time volume that nails the tone, art, everything." - Jeff Parker, writer X-Men, James Bond

"The new Judge Dredd: Control book is so drokkin' good! Class Dredd in all the best ways, but still as fresh as hell. With visuals that will melt your eyes. Recommended to all citizens." - JH Williams III, artist Sandman

"Gorgeous collection of stories that are like if Arthur Miller decided to roam Mega City One." - Van Jensen, writer Pinocchio, Vampire Slayer

"Rob and Chris Weston have a perfect grasp on what makes Dredd so compelling: a hero, a monster; an icon. This story boils with epic ambition and grimy realpolitik. This IS the law." - Simon Spurrier, writer Hellblazer, Coda

"It's a satire-tipped bullet, it is the best of JUDGE DREDD -- provocative speculative fiction that wields its monolithic pop culture icon to cut through the paranoid issues of the modern, often-fearful moment. Society and its follies are the nails, Dredd's the hammer, and we love him for it."" - Steve Orlando, writer Wonder Woman, Justice League

"a fantastic collection of modern Dredd. Highly recommend it." - Ollie Masters, writer The Kitchen
