JUDGE DREDD // WHO KILLED CAPTAIN COOKIES? // Part Three!

Mega-City One, 2143 AD. Home to over 160 million citizens, this urban hell is situated along the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America. Crime is rampant and only the zero-tolerance Judges can stop total anarchy. Toughest of them all is JUDGE DREDD — he is the Law! Now the benevolent do-gooder Captain Cookies has been murdered, and
super-intelligent ape Noam Chimpsky is investigating who was behind it…


Script: Alec Worley / Art: Ben Willsher / Letters: Jim Campbell

DURHAM RED // SERVED COLD // Part Eleven!

Late 22nd century. Of all the mutants that have operated as Search/Destroy agents, perhaps the most feared is vampire DURHAM RED, who requires blood to survive. Mistrusted by both the criminals she hunts and her fellow Strontium Dogs, Red has a formidable reputation that precedes her. Now, while imprisoned in the Hawks-Carpenter Holding Station, the father of one of her victims plans to get his revenge…

Three episodes, one complete, self-contained story — a condensed hit of super-charged Thrill-power beamed to you directly from the Nerve Centre! The UK, sometime in the near future. Inspector Nakrosky is a veteran law-enforcement officer of the Space Taskforce Armed Response Squad, a grizzled hold-out from an age before robots, aliens and clones. Now, he’s investigating a murder at the Wisteria Tea Rooms…

PROTEUS VEX // THE SHADOW CHANCELLOR // Part Eleven!

Another galaxy, the far future. The centuries-long war between the Alliance and the Obdurate people is over, a conflict brought to an end with the deaths of billions when the Alliance teleported a dying white dwarf star into the Obdurate system. Imperium agent PROTEUS VEX was charged with finding Chancellor Rho 7 Baryon, and when the flesh-pilot that controls Vex entered Baryon’s body he absorbed some of his memories…

THISTLEBONE // POISONED ROOTS // Part Three!

Britain, 2020. It’s been over a year since journalist Seema Chaudry accompanied cult survivor Avril Easton back to the village of Harrowvale, the site of her terryifying experiences at the hands of Jasper Hillman’s THISTLEBONE worshippers, a crazed occult group that believed in an ancient woodland deity. Scarred by the experience, Seema refuses to return, even when skeletons have been found amongst tree roots…
