OUT NOW: Judge Dredd Megazine 440

Judge Dredd Megazine 440 is OUT NOW, with more thrills abound from Dredd, Diamond Dogs, Death Cap, Surfer and Lawless!

MEG 440 out now

Judge Dredd Megazine 440 is out now!

We trust you all had an enjoyable Xmas – though at the time of writing, another lockdown was in the offing, so who knows where we’ll be once this issue comes out – and the new Meg line-up suitably energised your Thrill-circuits.

It’s more of the same this month as we’ve got the stunning second parts of Death Cap, Surfer, Diamond Dogs III and Lawless, plus a new Dredd thriller starts in the shape of Praise Zort! by Rory McConville and Staz Johnson, picking up the storyline in the aftermath of last year’s Project Providence, where Mega-City One was caught red-handed using time-travel tech to steal the march on other nations. Chief Judge Logan is going to need all the support he can muster to avoid sanctions, and unfortunately that means seeking the approval of the eccentric Profundians…

Big news for this Meg is the start of the Hawk the Slayer sequel by the stellar creative team of Garth Ennis and Henry Flint, which revisits the characters and world from the cult eighties fantasy movie. This five-issue arc will be bagged with every Megazine, so make sure you stick around for some truly eye-popping sword n’ sorcery action, citizens – you won’t be disappointed!

JUDGE DREDD // Praise Zort! // Part One!

Mega-City One, 2143 AD. This vast urban hell on the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America is home to over 160 million citizens. Unemployment is endemic, and crime is rampant. Stemming the tide of chaos are the Judges, future law-enforcers empowered to dispense instant justice. Toughest of them all is Judge Dredd – he is the Law!


Script: T.C. Eglington/ Art: Boo Cook / Letters: Simon Bowland

DEATH CAP // Part Two!

The Cursed Earth, 2143 AD. This blasted, irradiated wilderness covers much of what’s left of post-apocalyptic twenty-second century North America. Here, mutants exiled from living in the Mega-Cities scratch out a meagre existence in ramshackle townships. Former Judge Anita Goya’s family have been masscred, and she’s gone on the hunt for the perpetrators…

DIAMOND DOGS // III // Part Two!

Script: Dan Abnett / Art: Paul Winslade / Letters: Jim Campbell

LAWLESS // Ballots Over Badrock // Part Two!

Colonial Marshal Metta Lawson was appointed to the frontier township of Badrock on the planet 43 Rega, intent on stamping her authority on the colony. But in doing so, Lawson made many enemies, including Munce, Inc., the mega-corporation that funded Badrock. Now, with the SJS also running things, Lawson’s decided to quit her post and run for mayor…


Script: John Wagner / Art: Colin MacNeil / Colours: Chris Blythe / Letters: Annie Parkhouse

SURFER // Part Two!

Mega-City One, 2143 AD. Skysurfing is one of the most popular pastimes in the twenty-second century metropolis, a sport that requires a great deal of skill and agility.

Death Cap.

All this plus a complete Dredd story from Ken Niemand and Steven Austin, a Lenny Zero prose tale from Andy Diggle, and chats with former 2000 AD art editor Colin Wyatt and artist Stewart Kenneth Moore.

Wyatt’s colleague Doug Church – an integral part of the Galaxy’s Greatest’s visual development prior to publication forty-five years ago – is interviewed in a companion piece in Prog 2262, the bumper festive issue, which is also out right now, and equally unmissable. With the start of new series for Proteus Vex, Kingmaker, The Order and more, plus a Dredd starring some very familiar cameos, it’s a Thrill-packed Christmas all round!

If you’re a subscriber you may have received this on Saturday 14 August (another good reason, of course, to have your Thrill-power delivered direct to your door), in which case there’s just enough time to remind you that it’s Free Comic
Book Day on the 14th, moved from its usual May slot because of the pandemic.

As usual, lots of freebies to be snaffled from the participating comic stores, including another special 2000 AD issue, which features the opening chapters of Rob Williams and Si Fraser’s Hershey: Disease and Mike Carroll and John Higgins’ Dreadnoughts: Breaking Ground (ahead of their imminent graphic-novel collections) as well as a corking all-new Judge Dredd six-page story from Al Ewing and Caspar Wijngaard.

If you miss FCBD, these issues can usually be picked up online, but the initiative is intended to encourage in-store shopping, and Thrill-merchants, like most retailers, could do with your support in the wake of a devastating eighteen months.

Meanwhile, in this Meg, we’ve got more Dredd, Devlin Waugh, Diamond Dogs, The Returners and Angelic plus chats with artists Steve Roberts and Lee Sullivan. Enjoy!

Judge Dredd Megazine 434 is out now!

As well as working as a warning about a future society being ruled by a militarised polise force, the Judge Dredd strip has also presented a twenty-second century in which the planet is irrevocably scarred by nuclear war and environmental collapse.


The Cursed Earth is an irradiated wasteland, the Black Atlantic polluted to the point where any life within it isseverely mutated, and most produce is now synthetically created. It’s a bleak vision of a post-apocalyptic Earth, and if we want to stop it becoming a reality we all need to play a part in preventing climate change.

Paul Goodenough’s Rewriting Extinction project is the latest to draw attention to the crisis with a massive comic-book populated by three hundred writers, artists, activists and film-makers, from Alan Moore to Ricky Gervais. You can find out more about the initiative within this Meg.

Elsewhere, we have the return of Gordon Rennie and Lee Carter’s Angel Gang reimagining Angelic, plus Dredd, Devlin Waugh, Diamond Dogs and The Returners, plus interviews with two writers from very different publishing eras – 2000 AD and Action sub-editor Roy Preston, and up-and-comer Ram V.

On a final note, we were saddened to hear last month that Dave Evans had died. Often credited as Bolt-01, he was the editor of 2000 AD fanzines Zarjaz, Dogbreath and Futurequake, and a friendly and enthusiastic regular at conventions. He’ll be much missed. RIP, Bolt.

Elsewhere, there’s the latest instalment of Diamond Dogs II, the concluding chapter of Judge Dredd: Don’t Drokk With Bob, and the penultimate part of Deliverance, plus we chat with writer Cavan Scott – who collaborates with Paul Davidson on another Anderson, Psi-Division strip in the new 2000 AD Regened prog, out 26 May – and ahead of this month’s new Adam Eterno collection from the Treasury of British Comics Stephen Jewell takes a deep dive into the history of one of the UK’s most
popular newsstand anthologies, Valiant, home to The Steel Claw, Captain Hurricane, and many others.

May is traditionally the time for Free Comic Book Day, but Covid has meant it’s been moved to 14 August. Nevertheless, there’ll be another 2000 AD special, featuring a new Dredd story by Al Ewing and Caspar Wijngaard – check out the preview at 2000AD.com!

JUDGE DREDD // Don’t Drokk With Bob // Part Two!

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: Si Spencer / Art: Nicolo Assirelli / Colours: Eva de la Cruz / Letters: Jim Campbell

THE RETURNERS// Amazonia // Part One!

South-Am, 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 encounter supernatural entities. Now, after being trapped in a eerie house in Brit-Cit, they’ve been transported back to their home country…

DEVLIN WAUGH // The Reckoning // Part One!

Brit-Cit, 2142 AD. A freelance paranormal troubleshooter and exorcist for the Vatican, Devlin Waugh is the world’s foremost supernatural investigator. Despite becoming a vampire after getting bitten tackling an outbreak in an underwater prison, Devlin continues to enjoy the finer things in life. Having recently befriended a demon, Tittivillus, he’s become suspicious of it…


Script: James Peaty / Art: Warren Pleece / Letters: Simon Bowland

DIAMOND DOGS // Book Two // Part Two!

Brit-Cit, 2142 AD. The remnants of old Britain still exist alongside the twenty-second century Mega-City, and these ruins are fought over by the Brit-Cit street gangs, who see them as valuable territory. Nia Jones used to run with the Diamond Dogs, but she was also a Justice Dept informer, often playing both sides against each other. Now, though, the Dogs have disbanded…


Script: David Hine / Art: Nick Percival / Letters: Annie Parkhouse

DARK JUDGES // Deliverance // Part Nine!

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, before Mega-City marines destroyed the planet. Rescued by the Mortarian death-cult, the creatures are worshipped as gods

OUT NOW: Judge Dredd Megazine 431

More thrills abound in Megazine 431, with new Dredd, Deliverance, Megatropolis, Devlin Waugh and Diamond Dogs!

Judge Dredd Megazine 431 is out now!

This month we reach the final episode of Ken Niemand and Dave Taylor’s Megatropolis, another hugely popular series that commenced in last year’s thirtieth anniversary Meg, but, fear not, we’ll be returning to this beautifully realised alternate Mega-City at some point in the future.

Elsewhere, alongside the latest instalment of Deliverance, we have three new stories – Dredd learns that you don’t drokk with Bob, courtesy of Niemand and Ian Richardson; James Peaty and Warren Pleece reunite for another visit to the streets of Brit-Cit in Diamond Dogs II, following on from the debut series that ran in Megs 409-414; and we have another complete Devlin Waugh tale, The Lord of Lies, by Aleš Kot and Mike Dowling, setting up a major arc that starts next issue.

Plus there’s a chat with possibly heavy metal’s biggest Dredd fan, Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian, about Z2 Comics’ new project Among the Living, a graphic-novel adaptation of the seminal thrash album, which features Chris Weston drawing the ‘I am the Law’ story, scripted by Ian himself. Look out for it in May!

MEGATROPOLIS // Part Eight!

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 just been joined by a new partner in the shape of Amy Jara. Now, the Dredd vigilante has crashed the mayor’s ball…
