JUDGE DREDD // Removal Man // Part One!

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, with the irradiated wasteland known as the Cursed Earth to the west. Unemployment is rife, boredom universal and crime is rampant. Tensions rest on a knife-edge and only the zero-tolerance Judges can stop total anarchy. Toughest of them all is JUDGE DREDD — he is the Law!

Script: Gordon Rennie & Lawrence Rennie / Art: Boo Cook / Letters: Annie Parkhouse

MECHASTOPHELES // The Hunting Party // Part Three!

It is over a year since the Fall, when the demons rose and society collapsed. A band of human survivors have sought refuge in a demonically powered robot called MECHASTOPHELES, and they use this infernal ark as a means to seek sanctuary, searching for a safe haven away from the creatures that now stalk the land. But the demon bound to the mek, Apollyoneth Morga, has enemies in Hell too…

DEPARTMENT K // Cosmic Chaos // Part Three!

Mega-City One, 2143 AD. Justice Dept has many divisions tasked with dealing with the threats that face the metropolis, and DEPARTMENT K is a branch of Tek-Div, whose brief is to tackle interdimensional enemies. Headed by Judge Kirby, and comprising of intern Afua, Mechanismo droid Estabon and the alien Blackcurrant, they’re now helping a neighbouring reality, which is being attacked by raiders entering through a rift…

FERAL & FOE II // Part Twelve!

It is five years after the Last-of-All-War, when the Monarchy succeeded in defeating the Malign Lord. With their leader dead, his minions are scattered, fleeing retribution from the Wretchfinders. Necromancer Bode and warrior Wrath are two such beings, and were offered a deal — hunt and kill their own kind or be declared FERAL & FOE. Now, they’ve returned to Golgone the Necromancer, having retrieved the Chalice of Malice…

CHIMPSKY’S LAW // The Talented Mr Chimpsky // Part Three!

Mega-City One, 2143 AD. Late 21st-century science gave primates the ability to speak and socialise with humans, and there’s an enclave within the metropolis, Apetown, where simian citizens can live and work. Noam Chimpsky is a super-intelligent ape, who has chosen to look after the human civilians in his local sector. But now he’s working on an orbital mansion, where there’s been a gathering of the Jepperson family…
