JUDGE DREDD // Removal Man // Part Two!

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! Now, hitman Bick Bickford has taken out a target under Dredd’s nose…

MECHASTOPHELES // The Hunting Party // Part Four!

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 Four!

Mega-City One, 2143 AD.

It’s now home to every kind of undesirable and wanted criminal. That’s where SKIP TRACER Nolan Blake comes in, a former soldier turned tracker, who, after a battlefield injury, was left with powerful psi-abilities…

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

Mega-City One, 2143 AD.

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…
