Mega-City One as you’ve never seen it before – pre-order Megatropolis

This is the world of Judge Dredd – as you’ve never seen it before!

The spectacular Megatropolis is now available to pre-order. This visionary ‘Elseworlds‘-style series by writer Kenneth Niemand (Judge Dredd) and artist Dave Taylor (Batman & Superman: World’s Finest) radically reimagines the world of Judge Dredd, creating a stunning retro techno-futurist city inspired by Fritz Lang’s 1927 film, Metropolis.

Disgraced Officer Amy Jarra and Detective Joe ‘Choirboy’ Rico navigate the crime-ridden underbelly of the glamourous Metropolis, attempting to solve the murder of undercover Detective Fisher.

Transforming Mega-City One into an art deco cityscape, Niemand and Taylor spin a tale of futuristic noir with luscious art and jaw-dropping set pieces. This over-sized hardcover collection includes a gallery of cover art and never seen before concept sketches.

Out on 13 October, this collection is now available to pre-order as a standard hardcover collection and webshop-exclusive hardcover with gorgeous design-led cover.

Pre-order ‘The Cursed Earth Uncensored’ now!

For the very first time the ‘banned’ episodes of Judge Dredd from the late 1970s are to be reprinted – and you can now pre-order the collection from the 2000 AD shop!

Published in 2000 AD in 1978, The Cursed Earth was the first great Judge Dreddepic, but the story ran into trouble when two episodes – ‘Burger Wars’ and ‘Soul Food’ – featured parodies of Burger King, Ronald McDonald, the Jolly Green Giant, the Michelin Man, and a number of other prominent corporate characters in a raucous and shameless satire of American consumer culture. After concerns of legal action at the time the then publisher IPC decided all subsequent collections of this classic strip would omit the satirical stories.

Now, following recent changes in UK law governing parody, Judge Dredd: The Cursed Earth Uncensored will reprint the story in its entirety for the first time this July – a hardback edition full of sparkling action-packed parody from Pat Mills and John Wagner, complete with restored sumptuous colour spreads from Brian Bolland and Mick McMahon!

The most-requested reprint in 2000 AD history, The Cursed Earth saw Judge Dredd travel into the irradiated wastelands of middle America to deliver a vaccine to Mega-City Two on the West Coast, encountering a bizarre world of dinosaurs, murderous mutants, aliens, and deadly terrain in an insanely imaginative rollercoaster ride through the twisted landscape of American culture.

In ‘Burger Wars’, after World War III self-styled ‘burger barons’ had taken control of whole areas of middle America and were worshipped with religious zeal. Dredd and his comrades are captured and forced to consume burgers and shakes, only escaping thanks to the guards being fat and lazy due to too much fast food. They are then captured by the rival side and placed on trial for eating “the wrong kind” of burger.

In ‘Soul Food’, on their way through the Great Utah Dustbowl Dredd encounters the copyright infringing creations of Dr. Moreau-like scientist Dr Gribbons – including a Jolly Green Giant, a Michelin Man, and others – who drugs Dredd’s team in order to remove fluid from their nervous systems to keep his creations alive.

Comics Alliance recently featured some of the restored art from The Cursed Earth while you can get up close and personal with some of the original art from the series over the 2000 AD Tumblr, courtesy of generous Earthlet Mark Perry.
