JUDGE DREDD // THE SAMARITAN
By Kenneth Niemand (w) Staz Johnson (a) Chris Blythe (c) Annie Parkhouse (l)
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. 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, Dredd has been severely injured in a shoot-out and abducted by the psychic medical practitioner known as The Samaritan...
INDIGO PRIME // FALL OF THE HOUSE OF VISTA
Kek-W (w) Lee Carter (a) Ellie De Ville (l)
The multiverse. There are an infinite number of parallel realities, and all need managing in case of dimensional instability. This is where INDIGO PRIME comes in, the multiverse’s troubleshooters, whose agents — recruited post-death — are trained to deal with space/time catastrophes. Now, following the Christhulhu event, in which Major Arcana forced the Lanzer Corporation into the open, IP’s HQ is breaking apart...
ANDERSON, PSI-DIVISION // MARTYRS
Emma Beeby (w) Aneke (a) Barbara Nosenzo (c) Simon Bowland (l)
Mega-City One, 2141 AD. Psi-Div is a section of Justice Department that specialises in Judges with accentuated psychic talents — from precognition to exorcism, its operatives deal with all manner of paranormal crimes, and Cassandra ANDERSON is Psi-Div’s top telepath. Now she’s been trying to rehabilitate Psi-Judge Karyn, who can’t control the monster that dwells within her — but Karyn’s been attacked by a mysterious creature...
ABSALOM // TERMINAL DIAGNOSIS
Ian Edginton (w) Leigh Gallagher (a) Ellie De Ville (l)
UK, 2017. Inspector Harry ABSALOM is an old-school copper — curmudgeonly antiauthoritarian, he’s been with the force for over forty years. Suffering from cancer, he’s the head of a special squad that enforces The Accord, a diplomatic treaty made in the 16th century between the throne of England and the powers of Hell. Now, he’s leading a unit that is storming The Mills, a demon stronghold, to rescue his grandchildren...
THISTLEBONE // PART FIVE
T.C. Eglington (w) Simon Davis (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)
England, 2019. The rural village of Harrowvale holds a dark past — namely that, on a farm bordering the vast tracts of woodland, it hosted a cult seeking to escape civilisation, worshipping an ancient deity called THISTLEBONE. Led by the charismatic Jasper illman, their pagan beliefs grew ever more radical to the point where they tried to sacrifice the young Avril Eason. She escaped, and now, years later, Avril has returned to Harrowvale with journalist Seema Chaudry to ensure that the cult is truly dead...
