MISTAKES
It's odd that the quotes are presented without quotation marks. Also, Dredd was 33 in 2099 and it's odd something published in 1980 isn't more up to date.

RETROSPECT
The Cursed Earth is given as Dredd's longest adventure which was true at the time, but it's worth remembering that this was published during the run of The Judge Child, which would beat the previous story's record by one week.

NOTES
None.

CREDITS
Script: Unknown
Artist: Unknown

REVIEW
Well, this is odd. Of all the facts about Dredd that this could have revealed, instead it focuses on the events of Judge Whitey to the exclusion of everything else. Disappointing.
