"Freeze, Creeps!" from Judge Dredd #1 (DC, 1994) by Andrew Helfer and Mike Avon Oeming
Though I'd seen Judge Dredd in reprints before, and had the role-playing game, my first prolonged taste of Dredd was when DC held the rights to publish new Dredd stories for the American market, just as IDW does now. Check out the dates. Each American version of the book coincides with the release of a movie. The ongoing started strong with Mike Avon Oeming art, but he left after a few issues. The book didn't resonate with the American public, I guess, because it only lasted a year and a half. Or perhaps I should lay that at the Stallone film's feet.
