Prog 2166 sees Judge Dredd: Kill Bloopy meet its finale, while elsewhere there’s more new Feral & Foe, Proteus Vex, and The Zaucer of Zilk, plus more intense Brink action!


Welcome back, Thrill-hungry humanoids, to the weekly blast of diode-dazzling mayhem that is the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic, and another pulse-pounding prog, veritably packed with zarjazosity.

Kill Bloopy comes to its explosive conclusion this issue as Dredd must find a way to stop the rampaging imaginary friend Billy, while elsewhere it’s all kicking off in Brink as this enormously popular series builds to its scrotnig finale, there’s more oddball antics in The Zaucer of Zilk and Proteus Vex, and Wrath discovers what it means to be on the side of the bad guys in Feral & Foe. In other words, engage imaginations, Terrans, and prepare to ascend to a higher state of Thrillage!

Those gamers among you, don’t forget to check out Rebellion’s new WWII shooter Zombie Army 4: Dead War, which is released on 4 February on PS4, Xbox One and PC. If you’ve picked up this month’s Judge Dredd Megazine then you’ll already have read the start of the exclusive tie-in story, and writer Chris Roberson also has a ZA novel out on 6 February entitled Fortress of the Dead, published by Abaddon Books. For all the info, head over to!

JUDGE DREDD // Kill Bloopy // Part Four

Mega-City One, 2141 AD. Home to over 130 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!

ward Tutu. Now, a mysterious figure called the Criminaut has stolen his fused wand…

Imperium agent PROTEUS VEX must find the missing Chancellor Rho 7 Baryon…

FERAL & FOE // Part Five

It is five years after the Last-of-All-War, when the Monarchy succeeded in defeating
the Malign Lord, whose army of creatures sought to eradicate humanity. With their
leader dead, his minions are scattered across the lands, fleeing retribution from the
Wretchfinders. Necromancer Bode and warrior Wrath are two such beings, and have
been offered a deal — hunt and kill their own kind or be declared FERAL & FOE…
