Judge Dredd » The world according to Chimpsky (Part 1)
Mega-City One, 2141 AD. Home to over 130 million citizens, this urban hell is situated along the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America. Overcrowding is rife, unemployment near total, and boredom is endemic. Crime is rampant, and only the Judges — a zero-tolerance police force empowered to dispense instant justice — can stop total anarchy. Toughest of them all is JUDGE DREDD — he is the Law!
Scarlet Traces » Home Front (Part 5)
1968. It is decades since Mars waged war on Earth, and the major nations have access to Martian-derived technology, but Britain is still recovering from Martian bombardment in the 1940s, when much of the south of England was destroyed. This was followed by the arrival in the 1950s of two million Venusians, seeking refuge from Martian occupation. Now, the Martians have weaponised the sun, and are on the attack...

Three episodes, one complete, self-contained story — a condensed hit of super-charged Thrill-power beamed to you directly from the Nerve Centre! The Grind is a sprawling mega-city, where the divide between the haves and the have-nots is decidedly pronounced. Those that lack the credit are classed as ‘Dubes’ — short for ‘morally dubious’ — and are left to languish in the dark corners of the metropolis...
Kingmaker II » Ouroboros (Part 8)
The people of the Nine Kingdoms may have defeated Ichnar the Wraith King to live in relative peace and harmony, but they hadn’t reckoned on the Thorn — a race of aliens that occupied their world, destroying those that stood in their way. Recruiting the locals to aid their Shrike troopers, the Thorn are hunting down all those with magical abilities, a power they’ve been strip-mining for their own ends. Wizard Ablard, ork Crixus and dryad Princess Yarrow believe they may have the means to stop them...
