FIRSTS & LASTS
First appearance of a Justice 1.
The Trans-Ohio Tunnel runs through part of Mega-City One. At one exit the roadway is 8,000 feet high.
The Judges have 200 hover ships. Named Judges: Judge Fernandez, Judge Jonas
He and his forces retreat to a sub-garage and escape in a road liner. Cal shoots out the road and the liner falls from 8,000 feet.
He is injured badly during the Klegg attack and sacrifices himself to let the others escape.
CHIEF JUDGE CAL
He destroys the roadway ahead of Dredd's liner, causing it to fall.
Dredd kills a Klegghound after it tries to swallow his gunhand. The other Judges kill the rest.
Cal: "What lovely boys they are! So delightfully murderous! Ha, ha! Perhaps I should have been born a Klegg, eh, Slocum?"
Giant says Baby far too often.
The Kleggs sing a bit (see below) and get a battle cry in "Klegg-Haiiii!" twice. Dredd insults Jonas with a "Drokk you!"
CONTINUITY & CROSSOVERS
Giant mentions his Pappy again, late of Harlem Heroes and Inferno.

Bolland's art, Dredd's killing of a Klegghound from the inside and the cliffhanger is fantastic.
