6 Jan 79
Judge Dredd The Complete Case Files 02.
Dredd's rebellion almost ousts Cal, but then his reinforcements turn the tide.
FIRSTS & LASTS
First appearance of the Kleggs.
Mega-City One's Sector 1 is to the west of the city.
The Kleggs are a species of alien mercenaries who fight because they enjoy killing and seek payment in meat.
Named Judges: Judge Jenkins
His army of citizens drives Cal's forces back to Justice Central, but the arrival of the Kleggs.
CHIEF JUDGE CAL
He has engaged an army of Kleggs to put down civil disorder. He sentences the whole of Mega-City One to death in strict alphabetical order.
Judge Jenkins graduated from the Academy of Law as part of the Class of '97. He is fighting for Judge Cal.
The leader of the Kleggs.
Dredd sends two looters home on house arrest and says he will deal with them later.
Probably hundreds. Four of Dredd's loyal Judges and presumably hundreds of citizens die in the Klegg attack.
Cal: "Now, I want things carried out in an orderly manner. Report to your execution stations. In good time. No barging or rowdiness in the queues. And bring a book in case there is a delay. That is all."
Giant: "Lock up those traitors, baby!"
A citizen exclaims "M-my dok!", while Dredd says "Drokk it!"

Cal sentences the city to death again, but this part is anything but repetitive. The arrival of Kleggs and the prospect of the alphabetical executions are great, the art is wonderful and the looters under house arrest serve as an excellent reminder of the strip's usual content.
