Since first appearing on the scene in 1977, Judge Dredd
has been the comic-book world’s answer to Dirty Harry, serving as judge, jury and executioner in a dystopian future.
Now, in the latest issue of 2000AD, titled “Closet,” it appears as if the legendary lawman is coming out of the closet.
On the first page of the comic, Dredd is shown sharing a passionate kiss with another man
, with a caption reading: “I guess, somehow, I’d always known I was gay. I was just too scared to admit it.”
