Judge Dredd may be gay

Judge Dredd

(From The Sun) Fans of comic book hero Judge Dredd are up in arms after the legendary lawman is shown kissing another man in the latest issue.

The tough guy – played on the big screen by Sylvester Stallone – locks lips with a youth in a gay club in a sneak preview, released online.

The first page of the comic, titled Closet, shows Dredd reprimanding the mohican-haired man – before grabbing him in a passionate clinch.

The closing caption reads: “I guess, somehow, I’d always known I was gay. I was just too scared to admit it.”

Since the teaser was released online last month, regular readers have bombarded the writers with abusive messages and even threatened to burn the comic.

But Dredd’s creators reveal there’s a twist in the tale – which fans can read in full next Wednesday.

A spokesman explained: “We have had quite an extreme reaction.

“Dredd has always been satirical, while touching on serious issues. This is another example of this.”

Writer Rob Williams, meanwhile, insists it shouldn’t be a big surprise if the character is gay.

He said: “You can’t look at the original costume design of leather and chains and not see a fetishistic edge there.”
