No. 121 – Bat Mugger

Bat Mugger cover from prog 585‘s Judge Dredd by Alan Davis vs. Batman (aka The Dark Knight) here pictured on the cover of Batman: The Dark Knight Returns (DC Comics, 1986) by Frank Miller, Klaus Janson and Lynn Varley [not necessarily this particular image]

The Dark Knight Returns‘ huge success propelled Batman back into popular culture and, along with Alan Moore’s Watchmen (DC Comics, 1986–1987), initiated a publishing era known as the Dark Age of Comic Books (also known as the Modern Age or Iron Age).

In 1991 Dredd finally teamed up with Batman in Batman/Judge Dredd: Judgment on Gotham (DC Comics/Fleetway), written by John Wagner and Alan Grant with art by Simon Bisley.
