Enzed Justice

Just in time for Waitangi Day, something not really that necessary, but old.

This version drawn ooh... 1993 I'd say. A bona fide New Zealand judge never made it into the Judge Dredd strip of course; the best we've had so far has been the odd mention in Oz-themed stories (notably the Chopper epic Oz), and an addition in a rather outdated Dreddworld map from around the same time as the above illustration.

So, what we have here is young Simian's approximation of it, based on an Oz Judge (there'll be one along soon, it was Australia Day last week after all), and a less garish, more localised colour palette. Yes, his legs are too short, although so are mine. One of us has the convenient excuse that the creator ran out of page space while composing the drawing and already liked the top half too much to move it!


  1. I wish I had a copy of Prog 832's Nerve Centre handy... Not that I'm boasting or anything.

  2. Oh, trust you!

    I've seen your version often enough, but this surely merits a 'pics or it didn't happen' response :)

  3. Hey, I guess Karl Urban is a kiwi Judge now.
