Although his lineage goes back to Eustace Fargo, the Father of Justice, Joseph Dredd was not always the famous judge he is. Even he had to learn how to apply the Law through practice and experience. The Judge Dredd: Year One series highlights select cases from that rookie year.
In City Fathers, a Justice Department sanctioned spy is brutally executed. It is up to freshman Judge Joseph Dredd to find out the truth. His investigations through the seedy Black Market reveals a new threat to Mega City One. If Dredd cannot stop it, Chaos will be unleashed.
“Written by Matthew Smith, editor in chief of 2000 AD, this is the first in a new series of Judge Dredd: Year One titles and goes back to the beginning of Dredd’s life on the streets, explores his earliest cases and charts the development of the man who would go on to become the most famous of all the Judges.”
Praise for Matthew Smith:
“Smith manages to escalate the level of gore and violence from this bloody opening, and at the same time, balancing it with some welcome black humour”
