Judge Dredd Megazine #414 is out now, citizens!
Anderson, Psi-Division and Diamond Dogs wrap up this issue, plus we have a complete Judge Dredd thriller from Rory McConville and Ian Richardson, another Tale From the Black Museum, this time courtesy of Laura Bailey and Brian Corcoran, and the penultimate part of The Returners: Chandhu.
Elsewhere, we chat to Steve MacManus and Dr Julia Round about their latest books – in Steve’s case, an excursion into prose fiction for The SheerGlam Conspiracy, a thinly veiled, blackly comic look at 1970s office politics in the Goodenough Publications building; in Julia’s a delve into the eerie world of supernatural title Misty in Gothic For Girls – plus there’s pieces on the new Fall of Deadworld novellas and No Yetis Allowed’s Judge Dredd Crime Files free-to-play mobile game, which you can download for iOS and Android devices right now!
Be here next month for no less than four new stories – alongside Dredd, we have the welcome return of Lawless by Dan Abnett and Phil Winslade, the third and final series of Blunt by T.C. Eglington and Boo Cook, plus Devlin Waugh’s back in A Very Large Splash by Ales Kot and Mike Dowling.
Judge Dredd Megazine #414 is now available from all good comic book shops and newsagents – as well as 2000 AD’s webshop and apps.
Don’t forget that if you buy this issue in print direct from our webshop within the next month you’ll not pay a penny in postage fees in the UK! And if you subscribe to the Megazine you’ll get a FREE print of each month’s cover with each issue!
