OUT NOW: Judge Dredd Megazine 428

More thrills abound in Meg 428, with more Dredd, The Returners, Deliverance, Megatropolis and Dreadnoughts!

Judge Dredd Megazine 428 is out now!

Welcome to the first Megazine of 2021, and I’m sure we’re all hoping that, outside of the comic, this year’s a decided improvement on the last.

Inside these pages of course, it’s more of the same high-octane thrillers that you’ve come to expect, with the latest instalments of Megatropolis, Dreadnoughts, Deliverance and The Returners, plus a one-off Judge Dredd story from Ken Niemand and Patrick Goddard!

To coincide with the release this month of his memoir King’s Reach: 25 Years at the Top of Comics, former 2000 AD publishing director John Sanders gets the Interrogation treatment courtesy of Stephen Jewell, and he talks about his fascination with picture-strips, the brutal realities of the ‘hatch, match and despatch’ policy, and managing a vast portfolio of titles during a period that saw a cultural shift in the way that newsstand comics are consumed.

The management of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic has been often derided in the past over thorny issues such as rights and royalties so it makes for interesting reading to hear his side of the debate and his side of the debate and his thoughts on why 2000 AD survived!

JUDGE DREDD // The Night Flyer

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 Five!

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. Together they’re investigating a series of vigilante killings…


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

DREADNOUGHTS // Breaking Ground // Part Five!

USA, 2035 AD. The new Justice Department is still in its early years, with Judges working alongside the police. It’s proving an explosive transition, with many citizens – and more than a few cops – unhappy with these helmeted officers taking to the streets. Judge Veranda Glover is a recent transfer to Boulder, Colorado, and now she’s leading a kidnapping investigation…

Script: Si Spencer / Art: Nicolo Assirelli / Colours: Eva de la Cruz / Letters: Simon Bowland

THE RETURNERS // HEARTSWOOD // Part Five!

Brit-Cit, 2142 AD. Four different people in Ciudad Barranquilla – academic Barrancourt, exJudge Mineiro, gangbanger Correira, and transgender street-walker Chavez – all awoke from near-death experiences, and as a consequence encounter supernatural entities. Now, they’ve fled to Brit-Cit, hoping to find a way to escape their curse, and entered a strange house…

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

DARK JUDGES // DELIVERANCE // Part Five!

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. Death was trapped in a Boing® bubble, and has been recovered by the Mortarian cult…

JUDGE DREDD // The Fugitive // Part One

Mega-City One, 2141 AD. Home to over 130 million citizens, this urban hell is situated

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!
