British Comic Shop Releases (17th June 2015) – All-New Judge Dredd Megazine, Bryan Hitch on JLA

Judge Dredd Megazine 361

Here’s our guide to new comics and graphic on sale in British comic shops this week, complementing our monthly list of new British graphic novels and comic collections (June 2015 list here).

All-new stories start this month in Judge Dredd Megazine, also on sale in newsagents: “Demon Nic” by top creator Paul Grist (Union Jack) and “Storm Warning” by Leah Moore, John Reppion and newcomer Tom Foster – as well as “Judge Dredd: El Maldito” and the return of colonial outpost lawgirl, Marshal Etta Lawson, in “Lawless: Between Bedrock & A Hard Place”.

Don’t forget that despite many British publishers lack of faith in full-blown cover to cover comic strip action and humour, there are still comics on sale in newsagents that still delight in bringing you such subversive delights, including The Beano, Commando, Judge Dredd Megazine, Panini’s superhero titles and VIZ, with great strips also featuring in titles such as Doctor Who MagazineDoctor Who Adventures, Titan’s Doctor Who Comic (collecting their strips from the US format titles) Mega, TOXIC and many others.

The Hachette Judge Dredd Collection is also on sale now, but you may now have to subscribe if you want to continue buying it as Part Works are not distributed in newsagents after their first few issues.

Plus, the wonderful Phoenix Comic is on sale in all Waitrose supermarkets as well as available on subscription and through its dedicated iPad app.

2000AD/Rebellion

2000AD Prog 19352000AD Prog 1935

Judge Dredd // Blood of Emeralds (Part: 2)

Mega-City One, 2137 AD. Home to 50 million citizens, and still recovering from the decimation of the Chaos Bug, this urban hell is situated along the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America, where crime is rampant, poverty is rife, and unemployment near universal. Tensions run a constant knife-edge and only the zero-tolerance Judges — empowered to dispense instant justice — can stop total anarchy. Toughest of them all is JUDGE DREDD — he is the Law! In the wake of Chaos, Judges from other Justice Departments have bolstered the ranks, including Fintan Joyce from Emerald Isle…

Sláine // Primordial (Part: 12)

Albion, in a time of myth and legend. Celtic barbarian warrior SLÁINE united the tribes of the Earth Goddess Danu and became the first High King of Ireland. After ruling for seven years, he travelled through time to fight for the Goddess in other eras before returning to save his people from the Fomorian sea devils. He then became a wanderer, serving the Goddess where she directs him, and now he’s battling the Drune Lords…

Absalom // Under a False Flag (Part: 2)

London, 2011. Inspector Harry ABSALOM is an old-school copper – curmudgeonly anti-authoritarian, he’s been with the force for over forty years. Suffering from an inoperable cancer, he’s also the head of a special squad that enforces The Accord, a diplomatic treaty made in the sixteenth century between the throne of England and the powers of Hell, which means his team are responsible for tracking down and taking to task those demonic entities that break that agreement…

Helium (Part: 2)

The far future. It has been over three hundred years since the Great War ended, but there were no victors. Eighty-five per cent of the Earth’s surface now lies beneath a vast gaseous ocean known as the Poison Belt — a toxic, mutated cocktail of biological and chemical weapons designed by both sides to win the war. Instead, it almost spelt extinction for the human race. Those that survived cling to the High Lands — alpine valleys and mountaintop islands, safe from the noxious fog, and ply the clean air in ships of all description. Meanwhile, beneath the Belt, rumours of life abound…

Outlier (Part: 1)

An alien entity is picking off selected victims – as a private detective tries to hunt the killer down, could it have something to do with what happened to the crew of the salvage vessel Outlier?

Aquila #3

Aquila #3
Writer: Gordon Rennie Artist/Cover Artist: Leigh Gallagher

Aquila, former slave, gladiator, and now servant of Ammit the Devourer, has business to tend to and vengeance to deliver in Rome, the centre of the world. In the eternal city he finds an unwilling ally in Felix Fortunatus, and treachery around every corner.

Judge Dredd Megazine 361

Judge Dredd // El Maldito (Part: 1)
Mega-City One, 2130 AD. This vast urban nightmare on the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America is home to 400 million citizens, every one a potential criminal. With lawlessness rife, only the Judges can prevent total anarchy. These future lawmen are judge, jury and executioner. Toughest of them all is Judge Dredd – he is the Law!

Demon Nic (Part: 1)
UK, the present day. Demons have walked alongside mankind since the dawn of time, humanity waging war on their species. But now an uneasy peace exists between the two races, and the Church operates as a quasi-military outfit to ensure no demon steps out of line. Cursed with a soul, and an outcast from both sides, Nicodemus just wants a quiet life… The Relic

Storm // The Relic (Part: 1)
Brit-Cit, 2137 AD. Much like its Mega-City counterpart, Brit-Cit Justice Department has its various departments, from Tek to plainclothes, Tactical to Psi-Division, and one of its more prickly operatives in the latter is Lillian Storm, a psychically powerful Judge with the ability to talk to the dead. Unfortunately, her abilities are just as much a curse as they are a talent… Between Badrock & A Hard Place

Lawless // Between Badrock & A Hard Place (Part: 1)
Colonial Marshal Metta Lawson is appointed to the frontier township of Badrock, and immediately has her work cut out for her bringing order to the colony, where trouble comes in many forms, from droid to mutant to uplift. Will she be able to maintain order where other lawmen have failed?

Long thought lost and erased from the history books, he has suddenly returned, crash-landing in the Australian Outback. The few that have been able to reach him believe him to be a deity – one who turned the scorched desert into a lush oasis. They say he can bend matter, space, and even time to his will.
