Read full description of the books Mean Machine:2000AD anthology centred around Mean Machine the comic head-butting hillbilly mutant surgically enhanced with a dial from 1-4 (surly, mean, vicious, brutal).
This anthology is fun, but Mean Machine is very much a one dimensional character and the majority of stories lack the depth of some of the more satirical Dredd strips - it all feels a little 'lite' - My favourite story here is 'Son of Mean' in which Mean finds out that he has a son by his wife of one day, Seven Pound Sadie. Junior is a little goodie two shoes so Sadie has sent him to his pa to turn him bad. This one is both comic and tragic at the same time - great fun.
The Three Amigos is very silly indeed - Dredd takes Mean Machine and Judge Death into the cursed earth to uncover some nukes. The whole set up of the three working together seems implausible right from the start. There's another nice companion piece in which Dredd takes Mean Machine as a guide to locate the treasures of Liberace and 5 maternity robots incubating judge clones.
While I enjoyed this one, there are far better Dredd anthologies out there. A solid 2.5 stars.
