Here is what Judge Dredd: The board game has to say:
This is considered one of the lowest forms of crime in Mega-City One as it preys almost exclusively on juves. Old comics are worth a fortune, but unscrupulous perps sell them to kids at low prices. After one or two, the kids are hooked, and then the price goes up, and up, and up. The comic rings do not even sell originals, but reproduce them from comic micro-film slugs. One of their prime items is the 20th century comic 2000AD.
