Not only I've read it, I remember to have commented on it in this very Forum:

There is an old Japanese character called "Judge D" who travelled, dispensing justice to all who needed it.

I'm sure i read that he was the inspiration for judge dredd.

Read it few years ago. To be honest, I didn't understand the book. What was it's message? Did it even have a message?:?

I don't think it was intended to be taken too seriously. In this alternate timeline where Hitler is just a bad novelist, a "reviewer" comments that Hitler's vision of WW2 couldn't really happen....
I just got a kick out this Hitler figure as a Hell's Angel. It's a bit like Mel Brooke's "Hitler on Ice."
