Synopsis[]

Part One[]

At the start of the story, a funeral is being held for Judge Dredd, who was killed by an assassin's bullet a few days previously. Dredd had been hunting an armed robber named Mutie the Pig. While reviewing surveillance footage, he recognised the gunmanship as being that of a fellow Judge, Judge Gibson. Gibson was watching him, however, and shot him from his hiding-place. After the funeral, Gibson goes to rob a bar, disguised as Mutie the Pig, but is surprised when Dredd bursts in.[4]

Part Two[]

Dredd reveals that the assassination attempt had failed and that the funeral was all staged so that Gibson would drop his guard and Dredd could catch him red-handed. Gibson invokes a promise they made to each other while going through the Academy, that they would always settle their differences by single combat. During the fight, Gibson gets the drop on Dredd, but hesitates and Dredd shoots him. He reveals that the hesitation was deliberate so that Dredd would kill him rather than sentence him to 10 years on Titan.[5]
