A wonderfully unique setting that sort of mashes together low fantasy, pulp and supers to make for some very interesting scenarios. The rich worldbuilding really shines through while giving the GM plenty of space to build upon to make their campaign their own.
An interesting collection of short stories about a group of robot soldiers. It definitely wears its inspirations like "The Magnificent Seven" on its sleeve. Also has a good dose of Pat Mills' humor. I almost wish I read this before the first Nemesis the Warlock collection, because there's a lot of backstory here that plays out there.
When I was looking into this, I was told that Nemesis is a lot like a proto-Warhammer 40k setting. And that's technically true, but it does not indicate the sheer level of glorious chaos this comic provides. Planet-wide mass transit systems co-exist with space Inquisitors! A villain turned into a ghost after a transporter accident that uses telephone wires! An entire empire of space aliens that pretend to be Victorians! A hero that looks like a demon, and whose head is the same shape as his spaceship! It's a gloriously bonkers action comic....

I LOVE Star Power! It's a great blend of Green Lantern and Star Trek, with a fun lead character and a great supporting cast. Even though it's a free webcomic, I've still purchased every collection and issue on DriveThruComics. One of my favorites!
In a lot of ways, this is an interesting cross-section of Judge Dredd as a whole. It has some really experimental stories, an epic ("Book of the Dead", which isn't great in my opinion), and a number of "traditional" shorter stories. The art ranges from dark and murky to crisp and beautiful to downright odd. Something for everyone, but also you're bound to find something you don't like.
Cam Kennedy is a great artist, and his Kenny Who? stories are both harsh criticisms of the comic book industry, a searing self-critique of comic book artists, and just damn funny all around. Highly recommended.
This is where it all starts! These first stories can be a bit rough compared to some of the epics that come later, but it's worth it to see how it all starts and watch how the character evolves in a relatively short time.
Definitely one of the stranger collections. It has the short but searing critique "Twilight's Last Gleaming" about the relationship of the Judges and democracy, but also some bizarre runs like Raptaur which is visually wonderful but very different from the typical run. Bit of a mixed bag, but still a solid collection.
