The Savage Amusement Wikipedia
Rookie Judge Harry Brisco is taking his gruelling final assessment to decide if he is fit to be a full street judge, and Judge Dredd is assigned as the supervisor who can make or break him. As they hit the streets a mystery virus begins killing all the clones in the city – and Dredd himself is a clone. Meanwhile, Mega-City One is about to hold an election for its new mayor, and opinion polls indicate that undead mass-murderer Judge Death may win. Brisco is about to face the toughest challenge of his life.
Brisco first appeared as a cadet in the 1985 story Thirteenth Assessment in 2000 AD #421, written by John Wagner and Alan Grant.
