Description of this Book

Dredd's investigation into the death of a seemingly unremarkable sewage worker spirals into a waste management crisis that could destroy all of Mega-City One! Mega-City One has long used genetic modification on its waste workers to control the deluge of filth that flows under the city each day. When Dredd discovers that some of them have foregone that disfiguring procedure in favor of hosting protective alien symbiotes, it sparks a groundswell of anti-immigration fervor. Soon the toxic atmosphere spills into the streets, undermining the very infrastructure that makes the city tolerable. Can Dredd find a solution to save the now indispensable aliens from the angry mobs? Never have the satire and social commentary of Judge Dredd cut so sharply, nor repudiated hate so emphatically, as in Toxic! And never has that statement--or the humor and entertainment with which it is delivered--been more necessary. Collects the complete four-issue series.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Paul Jenkins' writing is fast paced and delivers a build-up, a climax, and a brilliantly thought-out denouement that is often missing in today's comics. Castiello's art is kinetic and gritty at the same time. He professionally delivers visual energy though excellent craftsmanship and technically accurate perspective. Each panel is fresh, well conceived, and benefits from fluid use of different camera angles. This is very high-level artwork that is completely in sync with the pace of the narrative. -Fanbase Press
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 2 stars (out of 5)
