As you all know, Judge Dredd was published in black and white. So we have the original version here:
And then we got the colored version designed for the American market in 1981:
And then the recolored version of IDW. As we can see, IDW has respected the credits from the original version.
However, there seems to be a few problems with IDW's recoloring. Let's take a look at the fat woman on the first panel:
In the 1981 version we can clearly see rabbit faces on her shoes, on the IDW version that detail isn't clear:
In other cases, IDW does a better job, though. In this page, we have the judges in blue tones:
And in the IDW version we have them fully colored. Good for that.
There's a particular page, however, that's driving me crazy.
The 1981 version eliminates the Block Mania title and apparently a small panel. Comparing the two pages, I notice a lot of differences. The buildings in the background are complete and most noticeably, we can see the judges ship complete.
I'll wait for the second issue of IDW to see if I can identify more discrepancies.
