OUT NOW: Judge Dredd Megazine #388

The bite is back - vampire occultist and freelance exorcist Devlin Waugh returns in the latest Judge Dredd Megazine!

9 months ago

Twenty-five years ago, a character made his debut in the Megazine and proved to be one of the most popular new additions to the Judge Dredd universe - Devlin Waugh!

Swimming in Blood – the tale of an outbreak of vampirism in the undersea prison of Aquatraz – launched in Meg 2.01 in May 1992, and writer John Smith and artist Sean Phillips introduced lead character Devlin Waugh, a freelance Vatican exorcist, memorably described as ‘Noël Coward’s head on Arnold Schwarzengger’s body’.

Now, ten years after his last appearance in Innocence and Experience, which hinted at his missing brother Freddy being in some kind of trouble, Devlin’s back this issue for a new story, Blood Debt, with Rory McConville taking up the script reins and Mike Dowling handling the art.

PLUS in this issue, don't miss stories for Judge Dredd, Judge Anderson, movie-universe Dredd, and The Dark Judges! And on top of all of that, there's also a bagged reprint collection featuring the comedic, bizarre, or just plain tragic endings for a host of famous Judge Dredd universe characters - from Tweek to Maria!

Judge Dredd Megazine #388 is out now from all good newsagents and comic book stores, plus digitally from our webshop and apps!
