2000AD have sent the news across that they’ve made all 20 volumes of Judge Dredd’s Complete Casefiles available digitally for iPods and iPads and all those other futuristic things you people have. Via their iOS App, readers can now buy and read thirty years of Dredd history.
Each volume is being priced at £9.99/$13.99.
The Casefiles have been going for a long time now, collecting the start of John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra’s character and following across the jump into colour, and subsequent runs from creators like Garth Ennis, Steve Dillon, Brian Bolland and Grant Morrison. So far 20 volumes have been collected and are now available to download, with the 21st volume due in October.
If you’re looking to give Judge Dredd a try, the two recommendations would be either going right from the start – or, if you’d rather start with a bang, volume 5 if the place to go. That’s the volume with The Dark Judges, Brian Bolland, as well as the storylines ‘Block Mania’ and ‘The Apocalypse War’ – two of the most well-regarded Dredd stories.
2000AD also sent along a preview – a walk through Dredd’s history, if you will:
