When Judge Dredd returns from the Cursed Earth he's convicted of murder. Now, with Dredd out of the way, the stage is set for the ascent to power of the crazed head of the Special Judicial Service - Judge Cal. With Cal in charge of Mega-City One, the law soon becomes a nightmare as the judges turn on the citizens. Only Judge Dredd and a handful of wounded judges can stop this madness...

The Day the Law Died is the fourth 2000AD collector's edition graphic novel to be launched by Titan Books. And Dredd fans will be pleased to hear that they have done a fantastic job of publishing a novel that collectors will be proud to own.

While the story is rather dark the introduction of the crazed Judge Cal, and his deputy Judge Fish, bring some much needed humour to the plot.

The story was adapted as a radio drama by Dirk Maggs for serialisation a few years ago on Radio One and this was the first time I had seen the comic strips from which the radio broadcasts were crafted. It's a credit to the original strips that the radio series changed hardly any of the content - instead they faithfully followed the script.

There is a bit of chopping and changing with artists which is very noticeable, but apart from that this is a faultless collection.

Titan proves, once again, why it is master of the graphic novel industry.
