Judge Dredd: The Complete Brian Bolland
Judge Dredd was created as a character for 2000 AD. I don't think he was expected to be as popular as he became; he ended up becoming the cover character for the comic. Brian Bolland did the art for a lot of the stories (and some of the covers, too). What I didn't realize until I started reading this collection was that Bolland didn't always illustrate entire storylines: some multi-part stories had different illustrators, so this collection doesn't contain the entire plot. Which was a real shame because a lot of the stories were super fun and interesting.
Other than that, this collection is a lot of fun. Bolland's art is fantastic, and the crazy world of Mega-City One is a lot of fun to read about. After reading through this collection, I think I'm definitely going to need to rewatch the movie soon! ;)
