The pope of crime is back – but he’s not the same man we thought we knew! After a hiatus of six years, STICKLEBACK returns to the pages of 2000 AD and the Thrill-Cast talks to creative team Ian Edginton and Matt “D’Israeli” Brooker about what’s in store for the Machiavellian malefactor and his oddball gang, plus updates on Scarlet Traces and Helium.

We’re then joined by comics scholar Kelly Kanayama to dive into John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra’s seminal Judge Dredd: Origins epic, where we discover the roots of the Judge system and Dredd’s own origin story … or do we?
