'Dredd' Evolves In This Exclusive Blu-ray Featurette

"Dredd 3D" doesn't hit Blu-ray and DVD until January 8, but we've got a sneak peek for you at the special features you'll have in store when it is released. In the below video, the folks at 2000 AD take us on a look back at "Judge Dredd" from his origins in the '70s to where he's at today.

Here you can see the evolving style of the artists who started with "Judge Dredd" in the '70s, like Brian Bolland and Mike McMahon, through those who tackled the British comic in the '80s and '90s, and finally brought it to where it is today. Though the look of the strip was translated into the "Dredd" film in a new way, but it's easy to understand the argument that the cumulative effort on the series is what made it so special and iconic.
