Just going ahead and making a thread here even though I'm still reading issue #1. Judge Dredd is one of my favorite characters even though the flagship IDW title of him has Swiercynski who I cannot stand from his Birds of Prey days.
So whenever they (IDW) come out with a mini like this one with a different writer I jump all over it.

This series is pretty fun to read. Long-time Dredd fans in particular may spot references to past events from the dialogue and other Easter-egg style hinting. (The story takes place in 2094 which I think is pre-Luna 1). The art looks pretty neat and reminds me of some of the 2000AD artwork from the 90s. There seems to be only a vague plotline here so far as Dredd is sent to MC2 as part of a "Judge Exchange" program. Subsequently he has various adventures in a town that is very different from what he is used to.

Other things I picked up on about Mega-City Two. Apparently it has been rebuilt since Judgement Day but that was exceedingly costly so the debt-ridden city sells the ability to pass laws to each citi-block.

I hope they do minis of the other cities as well as I would love to see Hondo City or TexasCity/MC3 get a mini.
