A lunatic despot, streets swarming with reptilian alien mercenaries, a goldfish appointed Deputy Chief Judge - The Day The Law Died is the latest in the new series of classic Judge Dredd stories in the perfect format for new readers

It is a dark time in the history of Mega-City One. Having employed blackmail and coercion, the tyrannical head of the Special Judicial Squad, Judge Cal, manages to secure the position of Chief Judge.

Employing alien mercenaries known as the Kleggs, Cal frames Judge Dredd and begins issuing increasingly bizarre orders - eventually sentencing the entire city to death! But Dredd is the kind of Judge who doesn’t go down too easily. Can he succeed against all odds and defeat Judge Cal before he destroys the entire population of Mega-City One?

One of the all-time classic stories from the early years of Judge Dredd, The Day The Law Died is a brutal satire, exciting action romp, and a hilarious image of a crazy world gone crazier.

With artwork from Brian Bolland (Batman: The Killing Joke), Dave Gibbons (Watchmen), Mick McMahon (The Last American) and Ron Smith, these stylish new B-format editions break the classic Judge Dredd stories out from the best-selling Case Files series to open up the world of Dredd to new readers and fans at a low price.
