Fast, furious and hysterically funny stories from the pen of Al Ewing (Marvel's Immortal Hulk), chronicling the highs and lows of Judge Dredd, Lawman of the Future. This action packed collection has an exclusive Liam Sharp (Green Lantern) cover.

"I’d struggle to overstate how much I enjoy and admire Al Ewing’s work [...] A typical Ewing story is technically ambitious, ethically astute, and intellectually playful. In short; great fun." - Sequart 

Go on patrol and see Mega-City One - and beyond - through the eyes of Al Ewing (Immortal Hulk), one of the most original writers in comics, as Judge Dredd dispenses justice to mutants, laidback religious cults, the Sex Olympics and Santa Claus. But when polite ex-stripper Zombo appears in his dimension, has old Stoney Face finally met his match?

Collecting many of Ewing’s outrageous Dredd stories for the first time and featuring an all-star cast of artists, including Liam Sharp (Green Lantern, Wonder Woman), John Higgins (Dreadnoughts: Breaking Ground, Judge Dredd, Watchmen), Simon Fraser (Judge Dredd, Nikolai Dante) and Ben Willsher (Roy of the Rovers, Judge Dredd), this is an essential collection for fans of the Law.

Al Ewing has been a Judge Dredd aficionado since the age of nine, and is best known in the UK for his work on Dredd in 2000 AD, where he also co-created Zombo and Damnation Station. In addition, Ewing has written various novels for Solaris and Abaddon Books, including The Fictional Man, Pax Omega and Gods of Manhattan, and is currently writing Mighty Avengers and Loki: Agent of Asgard for Marvel Comics.

Simon Fraser is best known to 2000 AD fans as the co-creator of Russian rogue Nikolai Dante, whose adventures have been a staple of the comic since his debut in 1997. Fraser is also the co-creator of Family in the Judge Dredd Megazine, and has drawn Judge Dredd and Shimura. His best-known non-2000 AD work is Lux & Alby: Sign On and Save the Universe, a collaboration with Scottish post-punk author Martin Millar. He is currently working on an adaptation of Richard Matheson’s Hell House and is also writing and drawing Lilly Mackenzie and the Mines of Charybdis.

Paul Marshall co-created The Corps and Firekind, and has also pencilled Judge Dredd, Mean Machine, One-Offs, Sinister Dexter, Tharg’s Future Shocks, Tyranny Rex and Vector 13. His other work can be seen in Harris Comics’ Avalon.

Paul J. Holden has illustrated The 86ers, Judge Dredd, Tharg’s Future Shocks, Rogue Trooper and Johnny Woo for 2000 AD and the Judge Dredd Megazine. P.J. lives and works in Belfast, and is married with two children.

Andrew Currie made his 2000 AD debut with Judge Dredd, following success in America with series like Ninjak and Seeker 3000. He has also worked on Sinister Dexter, The Inspectre and Bato Loco.

Patrick Goddard’s clean art style has graced many strips in the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic. Co-creator of the Megazine series Wardog, he has penciled Judge Dredd, Mean Machine, Middenface McNulty, Sinister Dexter and took over the art duties on Savage from Charlie Adlard.

John Higgins is a multi-talented 2000 AD artist and writer; as well as scripting a Future Shock and Judge Dredd, Higgins has illustrated Chopper, Freaks, One-Offs, Tharg the Mighty and Time Twisters. His work outside the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic is also highly respected, and he has contributed to some of the most important series of recent times, including working as a colourist on the modern superhero classic Watchmen, and on Vertigo’s Animal Man, Hellblazer and Pride and Joy.

Liam Sharp is the co-creator of recurring, pint-sized Judge Dredd villain P.J. Maybe. He has also illustrated A.B.C. Warriors, Finn and Tharg’s Future Shocks. Beyond 2000 AD, his work includes Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Possessed, Death’s Head II, The Incredible Hulk, Magik, Spiderman, Manthing, Spawn: The Dark Ages, Frazetta’s The Death Dealer and X-Men titles. Liam has also worked on the critically acclaimed Vertigo series Testament with best-selling author Douglas Rushkoff. He also set up Mam Tor publishing with his wife Christina, and produced Sharpenings; The Art of Liam Sharp, and the award-winning anthology Event Horizon.

Ben Willsher got his break in comics in the ground-breaking Deadline magazine (home of Tank Girl), before being stolen by the world of computer games, where he has worked as an Art Director for many years. However, the lure of Comics was too strong and he came back to 2000 AD and has drawn Future Shocks, Pulp Sci-Fi, Tharg’s Terror Tales, Sinister Dexter, Damnation Station, but he is probably best known for his work on Judge Dredd. As well as reviving the uber cool grifter Lenny Zero, with original creator Andy Diggle, Willsher has just concluded a movie Dreddverse strip titled Dust. Beyond his accomplishments in the world of comics he has also worked in film, television and the music industry, and is heavily involved in the World of Doctor Who, where he has illustrated work for the Time Lord luminaries such as Russell T Davies, Mark Gatiss, and comic giant Neil Gaiman.

Leigh Gallagher was looked upon strangely as he attempted to leap triumphantly in the air when Tharg gave him his first professional comics work in 2000 AD. Since then he has worked on Vertigo’s The Witching, DC Comics’ Justice League Unlimited, and more recently he was the 2008 artist on Lego’s Bionicle, based on the popular toy line. Now he’s back with 2000 AD on Defoe, reinventing himself using a style inspired by his early love of British comics Scream, Eagle and, of course, 2000 AD. He has finally realised he will never accomplish that triumphant leap, but is still looked upon strangely.

Jake Lynch is a Norfolk based artist drawing mainly for 2000AD, Judge Dredd Megazine and film. A self-taught artist he is living proof that they'll let any idiot in and as a self-confessed Sci-Fi nerd, he is often the first to be asked to leave.
