Judge Anderson: Shamballa TPB
If you like comic books, you must buy this trade paperback. It collects the best of the Judge Anderson stories by the definitive Judge Anderson creative team of writer Alan Grant (L.E.G.I.O.N., Batman) and artist Arthur Ranson. By turns spectacular, thoughful, dark, and witty, this is a prime showcase for the talents of the always underrated Alan Grant. Judge Anderson started out as a fairly one-dimensional action heroine, but Grant made her three-dimensional, worthy of standing next to his great L.E.G.I.O.N. heroines Stealth, Strata, and Lyrissa & Lydea Mallor. Grant's Judge Anderson is intelligent sequential sci-fi at its finest.
