One can never have too many post-apocalyptic visions of Los Angeles, right? This future L.A. is better known as Mega-City Two, a late 21st-century megalopolis that comes to us thanks to a new Judge Dredd comic, Mega-City Two: City of Courts, which hits shelves in January 2014.
Like Chris Burden's Metropolis II sculpture crossed with the Futurama opening credits, Mega-City Two is a deliciously detailed cacophony of vehicles, fast food, and sprawl. Because it's, you know, L.A., there will inevitably be comparisons to Blade Runner. But the Los Angeles in Mega-City Two is an entirely different animal, based on the ideas of another fictional city first created in the Judge Dredd universe 36 years ago: The New York-esque Mega-City One.
