A few days ago, we brought you the first trailer for Judge Dredd: Superfiend, a six-part animated series from producer Adi Shankar and writers/directors The Junquera Brothers. The entirety of the series debuted about one week ago, and is the latest of Shankar’s projects which include producing the 2012 film Dredd starring Karl Urban, the Punisher short Dirty Laundry and the Venom short Truth in Journalism.
While I was a big fan of Dredd, I’m certainly not going to claim to be a die-hard fan of the 2000 AD comics or the title character’s own series. I say this only to temper expectations of those of you who eat, sleep, and breathe Dredd, because you may have a different reaction to this animated take than I did. That being said, I loved every twisted second of it. Watching Judge Dredd: Superfiend made me want to go back to the beginning of the comics and see just what all the fuss is about. Hit the jump for my Judge Dredd: Superfiend review.
