Judge Dredd – Krong (single episode)

First appearance of Judge Dredds housekeeper Maria.

The curator of a movie special effects museum has a personal vendetta against the executives of the ‘Sensor-Round’ company who specialize in holographic projection. He uses old movie animatronics to murder his victims. When Judge Dredd closes in on his target, the curator sends the giant animatronic ape "Krong" on a rampage. When Krong climbs the Sensor-Round building Dredd pursues him on a sky-road and crashes his lawmaster bike into his head causing the giant robotic ape to fall from the tower crushing the offending curator.

This story has several parallels to the movie King Kong. Also, the name given to the curator is Kevin O’Neill. This is probably a reference to the 2000AD artist, writer & creator Kevin O’Neill who later went on to work on well known titles such as Marshal Law and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
