JUDGE DREDD // End of Days / Part Fourteen!

Mega-City One, 2142 AD. Home to over 140 million citizens, this urban hell is situated
along the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America. With unemployment rife and
boredom universal, tensions run a knife-edge and crime is rampant. Only the Judges
— zero-tolerance cops empowered to dispense instant justice — can stop total anarchy.
Toughest of them all is JUDGE DREDD — he is the Law!

Script: Dan Abnett / Art: Mark Harrison / Letters: Annie Parkhouse

THE OUT // Part Eleven!

The furthest edge of the universe, far into the future. Cyd Finlea is photojournalist working for the publishers Global Neographic, travelling deep into outer space — otherwise known as THE OUT — and cataloguing the sights and alien societies that she encounters. She’s been doing this for so long, she can’t remember how far she is now from Earth, but regardless she keeps going — just her and her camera…

SINISTER DEXTER // Bulletopia Chapter Three – Ghostlands / Part One!

Gun-sharks Finnigan SINISTER and Ramone DEXTER are the best hitmen money can
buy in the future city of Downlode. Having whacked Holy Moses Tanenbaum, a ganglord from an alternate dimension whose presence threatened the fabric of reality, they’ve found killing him reset the continuum, meaning no one knows who they are. Now, a rogue A.I. is at large, and the duo have teamed up with Carrie Hosanna and Billi Octavo…

Alphonse Mucha has been directed to a house on the Left Bank by an anonymous tipoff,
claiming that Lady Sofia Corundum has been murdered, her body lying within a
secret room. But Much will soon discover that all is not as it seems…
