JUDGE DREDD NEVER TAKES HIS HELMET OFF (except when…)
- …his head hurts.
Prog 89 saw Dredd fall foul of an assassin’s bullet in an SJS plot to put Joe out of the picture permanently during Judge Cal’s rise to despotic power.
The following prog saw a bandaged Dredd almost back to his curmudgeonly old self and on the run despite having had a bullet pass through his cranium.
“The speed-heal machine works wonders. He’s coming around already.” - Robo-Doctor, prog 90.
