She may have made her de­but in the ’80s, but it feels like it’s only re­cently that Judge An­der­son has seen a true resur­gence in pop­u­lar­ity across the board in Mega City One. The Deep End is, for all in­tents and pur­poses, a con­tin­u­a­tion of the chaos that un­folded in the movie DREDD, push­ing An­der­son back into the spot­light as she strug­gles with the re­al­i­ties of act­ing as judge, jury and ex­e­cu­tioner. Writer Alec Wor­ley does a fan­tas­tic job of bring­ing colour to the char­ac­ter, one thrust into sit­u­a­tions where the line be­tween right and wrong can so of­ten be black and white. The real star may, as is so of­ten the case with 2000AD, may in­deed buy the pen­cils from artist Paul David­son, who never fails to bring sub­stance to ev­ery scene with his rough and evoca­tive style. A must-read for any fans des­per­ate to con­tinue An­der­son’s jour­ney. Josh West
