No. 160 – Flood’s Thirteen

Flood’s Thirteen written by John Wagner and drawn by Henry Flint (colours by Chris Blythe) from Judge Dredd Megazine #237 (2005) v Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s Eleven (Warner Bros., 2001)

Jonny Flood’s hearing isn’t going well

Ocean’s 11 (Warner Bros., 1960), upon which Soderbergh’s film is based, and despite a stellar cast including “Rat Pack” icons Frank Sinatra (1915–1998), Dean Martin (1917–1995) and  Sammy Davis Jr. (1925–1990), was a relative flop by comparison.

The line “Get Shorty” used by Jonny Flood in the Judge Dredd story refers to the Elmore Leonard (1925–2013) novel of the same name (Delacorte Press, 1990), set in Hollywood and filmed in 1995 as Get Shorty (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer).
