Judge Minty takes the Long Walk to YouTube success


Judge Minty is a fan film, inspired by the world of 2000AD‘s Judge Dredd, based on an old story from the comics and follows a Judge forced to take the ‘Long Walk’ into the irradiated, post-apocalyptic wasteland of ‘The Cursed Earth’.The project has been in the works since 2008. Starring Edmund Dehn as Minty, It’s a great-looking movie and has the blessing of 2000AD‘s owners Rebellion – and it’s already attracted nearly 59,000 YouTube viewers since its release earlier this month.
