Judge Dredd: Supercop

Saturday 7 October, 6.30pm7.30pm, Room 1A24

He’s the hardline cop bringing justice to the mean futuristic streets of Mega-City One but is Judge Dredd a hero or a villain? Is he a law enforcement role-model or, in the light of recent years, is he becoming a worrying vision of the future? We debate the pros and cons of the lawman of the future with Rob Williams (Judge Dredd, Suicide Squad), Ulises Farinas (Judge Dredd: Blessed Earth), Kelly Kanayama (Women Write About Comics), Rosie Knight (Nerdist), Arthur Wyatt (DREDD) and Alex de Campi (DREDD).
