JUDGE DREDD // They Shoot Taking Horses, Don’t They? // Part Two!

Mega-City One, 2142 AD. Home to over 140 million citizens, this urban hell is situated
along the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America. With unemployment rife and
boredom universal, tensions run a knife-edge and crime is rampant. Only the Judges
— zero-tolerance cops empowered to dispense instant justice — can stop total anarchy.
Toughest of them all is JUDGE DREDD — he is the Law!

FIENDS OF THE EASTERN FRONT // Constanta // Part Five!

In 1980, the diary of German soldier Hans Schmitt was discovered in Berlin, detailing
events that occurred in 1941, when he encountered the terrifying vampire Captain
Constanta and his Romanian platoon. But Schmitt was not the first trooper to meet
Constanta — the vampire was on the Western Front too, in France in 1916. Now, in 1921,
an British pilot, Lieutenant Tim Wilson, has travelled to Romania in search of him…

Now, following Nimrod’s attempt to destroy the Cube, it’s in orbit above Balbuena…

STICKLEBACK // New Jerusalem // Part Six!

London, the end of the nineteenth century. STICKLEBACK is a master criminal, pulling the
strings amidst the denizens of the capital’s underworld, and led a gang of freaks, oddballs and semi-supernatural entities that had the city under their thumb. Mystery has always surrounded his past, and his identity has now been revealed as none other than Sherlock Holmes himself. But London faces a dire threat from otherworldly creatures…

HOOKJAW // Part Six!

NEW STORY! His name is legend, a myth that has passed into popular culture via
stories, word of mouth, comics, merchandise, and more — that of the formidable Great
White shark known as HOOK-JAW. A spear protruding from his lower jaw, few who
encounter him live to tell the tale, so terrible is his hunger. Bodies rent asunder in his
wake, the sea stained red with the blood of his victims, he’s a true terror of the deep…
