WORLD BOOK NIGHT NEWS: The Dark Judges First Graphic Novel Chosen - Rebellion

Hail Mighty Readers,
Well, whilst its still a while to World Book Night (April 2013) we thought that we'd bring the news that may help be the salvation to not only Mega City One but to homes where reluctant readers live.  

Our friends at Rebellion have heard that The Dark Judges is to be the first Graphic novel for World Book Night.  “As one of the most iconic British brands in publishing we are absolutely delighted to be a part of World Book Night ,” said 2000 AD and Rebellion Publishing manager Ben Smith. “Not only is The Dark Judges a classic Judge Dredd story, but the role that comics can play in encouraging reading and boosting literacy is well known. I have no doubt that people who receive one of the free copies will discover a new world of amazing stories, and hopefully will develop an appetite for great British comics.”

So remember, its not so much a choice as "The Law."

You can argue that Judge Dredd is a cheesy, sci-fi re-imagining of old Western cliches...

Personally I don't care, I grew up reading 2000AD and I still have a soft spot for Ol' Stoneface.
