JUDGE DREDD // THE PARADIGM SHIFT
by Michael Carroll (w) Jake Lynch (a) John Charles (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)
Mega-City One, 2140 AD. Home to 100 million citizens, this urban hell is situated along the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America. Crime is rampant, and only the Judges — empowered to dispense instant justice — can stop total anarchy. Toughest of them all is JUDGE DREDD — he is the Law! Now, the lawman is investigating a stolen tablet computer that may be connected to a crime from a hundred years earlier...

SKIP TRACER // HEAVY IS THE HEAD
by James Peaty (w) Paul Marshall (a) Dylan Teague (c) Simon Bowland (l)
The Cube, the 27th century. This vast city floating in the depths of space was once a monitoring station, but has been refitted by the Earth-led Consociation as a solution to a universal housing problem. It’s now home to every kind of undesirable, and an easy refuge for wanted criminals. That’s where SKIP TRACER Nolan Blake comes in, a former soldier turned tracker-for-hire. Now, one of his quarries has been assassinated...

SURVIVAL GEEKS // GEEK-CON
by Gordon Rennie, Emma Beeby (w) Neil Googe (a) Gary Caldwell (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)
Somewhere in the outer limits of space/time, plunging through the planes of reality, is what looks like a regular suburban two-up two-down, but it is in fact powered by misfiring transdimensional technology. Inside live sci-fi obsessives Clive, Rufus and Simon, plus new reluctant housemate Sam and pet Cthulhu Howard: explorers on the edge of beyond. Now, they’ve arrived at Warp-Con, and learnt that they’re famous...

DAMNED: THE FALL OF DEADWORLD
by Kek-W (w) Dave Kendall (a) Ellie De Ville (l)
The planet that eventually became known as DEADWORLD was once a regular civilisation existing in a dimension parallel to our own. But the end of days is coming: riots, storms, food shortages. Creatures known as the Dark Judges are spreading their contagion, exterminating all life. Now, Judge Fairfax is in the hands of the enemy, and his young ward Jess has vowed to mount a rescue attempt...

DURHAM RED // BORN BAD
by Alec Worley (w) Ben Willsher (a) Ellie De Ville (l)
Late 22nd century. After the Atomic Wars, many survivors were warped by Strontium 90 fallout. These ‘mutants’ became a victimised underclass, forced into ghettos, with bounty hunting the only job open to them. One such Search/Destroy agent is ruthless vampire DURHAM RED, who requires blood to survive. Out of work and needing cash, she’s been hired by dying mutant ganglord Monkey Harris to find his mother...
