More thrills abound in Meg 426, with more Dredd, The Returners, Dark Judges, Megatropolis and Dreadnoughts!

Judge Dredd Megazine 426 is out now!

WELCOME, CITIZENS, TO THE NOVEMBER MEGAZINE, AND WHILE WE REACH THE FINALE TO DREDD THRILLER The Victims of Bennett Beeny this issue, the rest of the stunning line-up that commenced in the thirtieth anniversary issue ploughs ahead!

Intrigue and attempted assassinations in Megatropolis, the suspects line up in Dreadnoughts, there’s eerie mystery in The Returners, and more body horror in Deliverance!

In addition we take a look at two new books released this month – Duncan Jones and Alex de Campi’s graphic novel Madi makes the transition from film script to
sequential storytelling with a host of amazing artists bringing it to life, including Simon Bisley, Glenn Fabry, Chris Weston and more; while comic characters shift into another medium in Judge Fear’s Big Day Out and Other Stories, an omnibus of Dredd prose tales culled from the pages of the Meg.

Abaddon’s range of 2000 AD novellas featuring the early days of Ol’ Stoney-Face, Anderson, Rico and the Dark Judges have proven a popular stream of additional Thrills to accompany the comics.

Check ’em out, if you haven’t done so already!

Judge Dredd Megazine 426 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!

JUDGE DREDD // The Victims of Bennett Beeny / Part Three!

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: Kenneth Niemand / Art: Dave Taylor / Letters: Jim Campbell

MEGATROPOLIS // Part Three!

NEW STORY! Imagine a Mega-City One from an alternate timeline – less the gleaming
metropolis of the twenty-second century but instead an art deco retro-future variation. Joe Rico is the one good cop in a police department riddled with corruption, and he’s about to get a new partner in the shape of Amy Jara…


Script: Mike Carroll / Art: John Higgins / Colours: Sally Hurst / Simon Bowland

DREADNOUGHTS // Breaking Ground // Part Three!

NEW STORY! USA, 2035 AD. The new Justice Department is still in its early years, with
Judges working alongside the police, military and the government, though Fargo’s people are slowly taking over. It’s proving an explosive transition, with many citizens – and more than a few cops – unhappy with these helmeted officers taking to the streets…

THE RETURNERS // HEARTSWOOD // Part Three!

Brit-Cit, 2142 AD. Four different people in Ciudad Barranquilla – academic Barrancourt, ex- Judge Mineiro, gangbanger Correira, and transgender street-walker Chavez – all awoke from near-death experiences, and as a consequence are capable of dealing with the supernatural. Now, they’ve fled to Brit-Cit, hoping to find a way to escape their curse…

DARK JUDGES // DELIVERANCE // Part Three!

After the events on the Mayflower, the cargo ship the Solips discovered the Dark Judges
Death, Fire and Mortis floating in space, and the alien superfiends murdered the crew. They subsequently also decimated a colony, Dominion, and when marines were sent in, they were joined by Fear. Dominion was destroyed, and Death was trapped in a Boing® bubble…
