Just before that, though, and a whole raft of other new stories starting in a fortnight’s time, is the latest of Tharg’s nephew’s Regened issues, arriving seven days’ hence.

JUDGE DREDD // Chimpsky’s Law / Part Part Five

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!

Script: Liam Johnson / Art: Robin Henley / Letters: Jim Campbell


Out in the vast reaches of the universe, there are an infinite number of stories waiting
to be told. These cautionary tales pass from traveller to traveller in the spaceports and
around campfires on distant planets, acquiring the status of legend, their shocking
ends a salutory lesson in hubris. Anything is possible in these twisted trips into the
galaxy’s dark side. Abandon your preconceptions, and expect the unexpected…

THE ORDER // Inbetween Days

Throughout history, mankind has been under threat of extermination by the Wyrms,
creatures from another plane that systematically break into our reality. Defending
humanity are the men and women of THE ORDER, a secret band of warriors that have
fought the entities across the centuries. But the Wyrms have fractured time, and a new
chronology has been created, one in which Francis Bacon has access to future tech…

SURVIVAL GEEKS // Crisis of Infinite Nerds / Part Eight

Somewhere in the outer limits of space/time, plunging through the planes of reality,
is what looks like a regular suburban two-up two-down, but it is in fact powered by
misfiring transdimensional technology. Inside live sci-fi obsessives Clive, Rufus and
Simon, plus reluctant housemate Sam and pet Cthulhu Howard: explorers on the edge
of beyond, they’re never far from trouble on the worlds they visit…

Script: Rob Williams / Art: Simon Fraser / Letters: Simon Bowland

HERSHEY // Disease / Part Eight

Judge Barbara Hershey was one of Justice Department’s most respected and capable young officers before she became Chief Judge. Leading the city through numerous challenges, she only occasionally clashed with Dredd — until the ‘Small House’ affair and the revelation of Judge Smiley’s clandestine operations on her watch. Now, though, a microbial virus has seen Hershey resign, and her health suffer to the point of death…
