THE CROSSOVER 50 YEARS IN THE MAKING!

What if the old Battle Action comic was merged with 2000 AD in the early ‘80s? That’s the question posed by this all-new collection that reveals the answer is – action-packed thrills by the bucket-load. It takes old Battle Action strips and reworks them as 2000 AD-appropriate adventures, while remaining true to their original concept and continuity.

This kick-ass crossover sees Judge Dredd feature in a brand-new reimagining of Action’s most controversial strip – Kids Rule O.K., and also includes Darkie’s Mob, Death Game 2049 and Major Eazy amongst others.

Written by Ken Niemand (Judge Dredd), Geoffrey D. Wessel (War Birds), Chris Weston (Rogue Trooper), Karl Stock (Fiends of West Berlin), Arthur Wyatt (Dredd), Gordon Rennie (Judge Dredd), Mike Carroll (Dreadnaughts), Alec Worley (Robo-Hunter) and Alex De Campi (Archie vs. Predator), with art by Simon Coleby (The Authority), Nick Dyer (Tales from the Black Museum), Paul Marshall (Sinister Dexter), Jake Lynch (HAVN), Dan Cornwell (Rok of the Reds), Nick Percival (Slaine), Kieran McKeown (Crime Syndicate), Staz Johnson (Vikings) and Patrick Goddard (Battle Action).

About The Authors

A Forces brat, Kenneth Niemand's first exposure to the world of Judge Dredd was through random copies of 2000AD circulating in various RAF bases around the world. He now writes radio comedy, video games and, increasingly, bits and pieces of the world of Judge Dredd.

Chris Weston has drawn a vast array of 2000 AD and Megazine stories, including Indigo Prime, Downlode Tales, Future Shocks, Canon Fodder, Judge Dredd, Nemesis the Warlock, Nikolai Dante, Pulp Sci-Fi, Robo-Hunter, Rogue Trooper and Vector 13. Beyond 2000 AD, Weston’s work includes Fantastic Four: First Family, Enemy Ace: War in Heaven, The Filth, The Invisibles, Ministry of Space and Garth Ennis’s War Story: Johann’s Tiger.
