This February 2000AD will release the first volume in a planned series of prose novels that explore the origins of Judge Dredd’s beloved Justice Department. Featuring three separate stories written by Michael Carroll (2000AD), George Mann (Doctor Who) and Charles J Eskew (Tales of the Astonishing Black Spark) it’ll cost £8.99 (UK) $11.99 (US) and £4.99 (ebook).
The first three stories in the new prose series exploring the (very) near-future origins of Judge Dredd’s Department of Justice. In a time of widespread poverty, inequality and political unrest, Special Prosecutor Eustace Fargo’s controversial new justice laws have come into effect. Protests and violence meet the first Judges as they hit the street to enforce the Law; the cure, it’s clear, is far worse than the disease. Is this a sign of things to come?
Judges Vol. 1 will be released on February 21st in bookshops and online.
