The end of week twenty-six of the Reading Project, and the halfway point. Here's what I've read this week:

Judge Dredd: The Dark Judges (John Wagner)

A late National Book Day present. A good read, with plenty of dark humour and tongue-in-cheek grimness. The serious style of the art is a great companion to the story, and they combine into a work that hovers pleasantly between suspension-breaking seriousness and pure silliness, without ever leaning too far into either territory. One downside: I think this collected volume is a little weakened because of the similarity between the stories, which can also seem a bit predictable. I think they probably had more impact in the original magazine, mixed between other adventures of the judges.
