My latest article on Mental Floss takes a look at Judge Dredd comics and helps you catch up on everything that's been going on the last few years.

I was a Dredd newbie myself going into this but received some expert help from comics critic and Dredd writer Douglas Wolk as well as from the people from 2000 AD magazine. Now, I'm a huge fan.

This week on +Mental Floss  we go back to the '70s with Mimi Pond's memoir OVER EASY and back to the '80s with Kyle Starks' ode to cheesy action films SEXCASTLE. Plus, the return of Wally West in THE FLASH.

This week on Mental Floss, Flash Gordon turns 80 and to celebrate we get a great new comic that is both modern and retro. Plus a new weekly Batman book, a comic about Cosplayers, a comic about girls in summer camp solving supernatural mysteries and two comics from Michael Fiffe: All New Ultimates and Copra.

It's hard for me to even call most of what they're doing  now "art". It's assembly line garbage.

This week on Mental Floss, see how 6 popular novelists including Margaret Atwood, Gillian Flynn and Dave Eggers did at writing their own comics. Plus two good old boys make a gritty comic that both relishes in and pokes some fun at southern culture.

Thanks, +Jason Folkes ! Hopefully Vol. 3 by the end of the year. I'm terrible at keeping to any schedule with it though so who knows.
