Mega-City One, 2144 AD. This vast urban hell on the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America is home to over 180 million citizens. Unemployment is endemic, boredom universal, and tensions run on a constant knife-edge. Crime is rampant, and stemming the tide of chaos are the Judges. Toughest of them all is Judge Dredd – he is the Law!
Brit-Cit, 2147 AD. Much like its Mega-City counterpart, Brit-Cit Justice Department has its various divisions, from Tek to plainclothes, Tactical to Psi, and one of its more prickly operatives in the latter is Lillian Storm, who has the ability to talk to the dead, and is always accompanied by her ghostly helpers. Now, Storm has been seemingly laid to rest to cross into the afterlife…
Brit-Cit, 2144 AD. A freelance paranormal troubleshooter and exorcist for the Vatican, Devlin Waugh is the world’s foremost supernatural investigator. Despite becoming a vampire after getting bitten tackling an outbreak in an underwater prison, Devlin continues to enjoy the finer things in life. Now, after a trip to Hell, he must investigate the curse on his bloodline…
After the events on the Mayflower, in which the Dark Judges were ejected into space, they ended up on the colony world of Dominion, which they proceeded to decimate. When Mega- City marines were sent in, assisted by survivor Rosco, the planet was destroyed. Worshipped like gods on Thanatopia by a death-cult, they’ve now been targeted by a death-metal band…
Mega-City One, 2144 AD. Skysurfing is one of the most popular pastimes in the twenty-second century metropolis, a sport that requires a great deal of skill and agility. Young Zane Perks is a particularly gifted surfer, and won a place to be in an illegal movie recreating the famous Supersurf 7. Now Zane’s trying to save his father from local crim Snarky by doing a courier job…
‘The Long Hard Road’ begins here! In an adventure from Joe Dredd’s early days as a Mega City-One Judge, writer (and Eagle-Award-winning 2000 AD Editor) Matt Smith presents a tale where ‘all the young juves, carry the news,’ only in this case, the news is delivered with a lethal blow!
Dredd heads Californee way! As part of a judicial exchange program, Dredd is sent packing to Mega-City Two, a sprawling city covering 5,000 square miles of the Californian West Coast and centered in what was once known as Los Angeles, where he soon discovers that they do things differently there.
Part Dirty Harry, part Judge Dredd, ALL BADASS! Police Detective Jack McBane is the toughest, meanest law enforcer in 1970s New York City. Despite having lost his left eye in the line of duty, McBane will stop at nothing to rid the crime-infested streets of scumbags and villains – even if it means having to occasionally break the rules! Written by John Wagner and featuring the dynamic artwork of the late John Cooper, One-Eyed Jack is a seminal comic strip from Valiant which helped shape and change the course of British comic books forever.
