Thanks for the clarification everyone, I'll take a look at Year One too.
I dig the IDW series. From what I gather, it's not as dark or gritty, more of a cape comic than the "real deal," but it's very fun and at least very respectful. With Classics, Year One, 2000AD, back issues, and trades, I think something different can be afforded.
"Superman, are you really gonna let those drug dealers get away?"
"You bet! See, I'm right HERE, while they... are over THERE."
Well the rumour seems to have reached IDWs ears as well since Block Mania is the first of their Judge Dredd Classics reprint in colour.
