Joko-Jargo is here again, bringing you another special all-ages edition of the Galaxy’s Greatest!
Welcome, Thrill-seekers, to the second Regened take-over issue of 2020, whereby Tharg passes the reins of his pulse-pounding SF anthology for a bumper one-off prog to his young nephew Joko-Jargo!
As ever, we’ve got a scrotnig selection of stories to energise the circuits of humanoids young and old!
We kick off with another Cadet Dredd tale, this time from Matt Smith and Nicolo Assirelli, as Joe undergoes the first of his Routine Combat Assessments that will determine his effectiveness on the dangerous streets of Mega-City One. Fellow Judge Cassandra Anderson also returns, courtesy of Cavan Scott and Paul Davidson, investigating suspicious goings-on amongst some very well-behaved schoolchildren!
Elsewhere ghost-hunters Eliot and Meera are back in Finder & Keeper by John Reppion and David Tinto, tackling a haunted block of flats, and we head back to the early days of Johnny Alpha in Strontium Dog: Acceptable Losses by Mike Carroll and Nick Brokenshire, revealing a mission he undertook when he first joined the Mutant Army; plus there’s a one-off tale of a miscreant monarch in a Future Shock from Laura Bailey and Andrea Mutti.

CADET DREDD // Combat Ready
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. CADET JOE DREDD — together with his clone-brother Rico — is a rising star in Justice Department, and will one day be its finest officer. Make no mistake, he is the Law!
FUTURE SHOCK // The Queen of Mean
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…
FINDER & KEEPER // Nuisance Neighbours
Somewhere in the UK, 2020. Meera Hundal and Eliot Hunter are a pair of friends at the local Stonecroft school. Although essentially good kids, they find themselves in trouble more often than they’d like thanks to their inability to walk away from a fight. Strong willed and not afraid to speak their minds, their latest punishment was to help with community clean-up chores — and when they were clearing the house of Victorian ghost-hunter Professor A.J. Mortimer, they came upon the special devices that he used to trap spooks. Now in the possession of spectral vision goggles and a spirit-trap, they’re seeing if they can put them to good use…
ANDERSON, PSI-DIVISION // First-Class Citizen
Mega-City One, 2142 AD. Psi-Division is a section of Justice Department that specialises in Judges with accentuated psychic talents — from precognition to exorcism, projection to pyrokinesis, it deals with all manner of paranormal crimes, and is often the city’s
first defence against supernatural threats. Cassandra ANDERSON is Justice Department’s top telepath — warm, empathetic and often flippant, she’s not your usual Judge, and she still sees the good in the Big Meg’s citizens. Given that Psi-Judges are often highly strung, their occasionally disrespectful attitude is overlooked as long as they continue to get results…
STRONTIUM DOG // Acceptable Losses
Following the Great Atom War of 2150, many of the survivors were mutated by the radioactive Strontium 90 fallout, creating an underclass despised and feared by the ‘norms’. These mutants were forced to live in ghettos, and the only job open to them was
bounty hunting as Search/Destroy agents. One such STRONTIUM DOG is Johnny Alpha, whose eyes are capable of emitting alpha waves enabling him to see through walls. Before his career as a Stront, however, a young Johnny played a significant role in the mutant rebellion against Nelson Bunker Kreelman’s forces, who were seeking to eradicate mutants from the face of the earth…
