Judge Dredd: America featuring Joseph Fiennes (The Handmaid’s Tale, Shakespeare in Love), America is long considered one of the most important stories in British comics history; a story about freedom, terrorism, and armed struggle against an oppressive totalitarian police state. Wagner and Colin MacNeil’s groundbreaking story confirmed Judge Dredd‘s place as one of the most politically charged and nuanced series in comics.
Judge Dredd: The Pit featuring Paterson Joseph (Neverwhere, Timeless), The Pit is an epic police procedural saga infused with action, politics, and corruption – The Wire meets Britain’s home-grown superhero Judge Dredd. Alongside a supporting cast of Judges, Dredd must clean up the dirtiest sector in Mega-City One.
The Ballad of Halo Jones featuring Sheila Atim (The Underground Railroad), is a galaxy-spanning adventure story, a feminist space opera, and an epic written by arguably the world’s greatest comic book writer, Alan Moore.
Sláine: The Horned God featuring Colin Morgan (Merlin, Humans), is an exhilarating mix of Celtic mythology, violence, and heroism, telling the story of the Horned God’s journey of death and rebirth, as Sláine leads his tribe in the service of the Earth goddess.
These adaptations in audio have been produced by the award-winning Penguin Random House Studios. Working closely with authors and editors at 2000 AD, all 300 characters in the graphics novels have been voiced by over 40 narrators, alongside mesmerising sound effects and original music.
