Didn’t know half of it. Swimming in Blood Judge Dredd: Devlin Waugh is the Vatican’s best freelance, supernatural operative.

Both of the lengthy stories in this collection “Swimming In Blood” and “Fetish” fall apart at the end, as Smith seems to realize that he’s become far too enamored with setting the stage and creating atmospheric scenes of foreboding, at the cost of really coming up with a plot machine that can deliver anything remotely approaching a satisfying conclusion, and so the climaxes seem messy, rushed and, in “Fetish”‘s case, somewhat nonsensical.
