Moulded and shaped to be the first of the new breed of law-makers, Jones hits the streets again.

Mega-City One, 2080. It is Joe Dredd's first year as a full-eagle Judge.

His reputation will be moulded in the years ahead, but right now he?s a young lawman, fresh on the streets. A savage killing spree results in the deaths of two highly-regarded Judges, and many consider Dredd to be responsible: a decision he made five years earlier - while he was still a cadet - has come back to haunt him. With the Justice Department overwhelmed and the city at a standstill thanks to a chaotic and brutal cross-city motorbike race, Dredd must bring the killer to justice and clear his name...

إن نجاحنا في الحياة يعتمد في المقام الأول على حسن تقديرنا للأمور، وعلى تمييز الطيب من الخبيث. فمهما يكن الأمر، علينا أولًا إعمال العقل؛ لأن فقدانه يعني فقدان كل شيء. هذه هي الرسالة التى أراد أن يرسلها لنا «شكسبير»؛ فلو أن الملك «لير» عقل الأمور لما انخدع في حب ابنتيه «غونوريل» و«ريغان» وفقد كل شيء. لقد عمل شكسبير على التأكيد على انتصار الشر بمقتل الملك وابنته، وأصرَّ على هذه النهاية التراجيدية كي يبقى أثرها في نفس المتلقي. وقد تجاوزت الرواية حدود المحلية الإنجليزية وانطلقت نحو العالمية، وكان لها أثر كبير في الأدب العالمي؛ فتُرجمت إلى عدة لغات لأكثر من مرة — كان منها العربية — كما مُثِّلت على المسرح العالمي والعربي، واعتبرها بعض النقاد أكثر المسرحيات المأساوية إثارة للنفس.
