Judge Dredd » Citizenship (Part 1)
Writer: Rory McConville Art: Jake Lynch Colour: John Charles Letters: Annie Parkhouse

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 polluted Black Atlantic on one side and the irradiated wasteland that is the Cursed Earth to the west. The populace is crammed into vast city blocks, and unemployment is rife, boredom universal, and crime is rampant. Only the Judges — empowered to dispense instant justice — can stop total anarchy. Toughest of them all is JUDGE DREDD — he is the Law!

Now, tensions are rising within the group, but Clive has invention that may help them pull together…

The people of the Nine Kingdoms may have defeated Ichnar the Wraith King to live in relative peace and harmony, but they hadn’t reckoned on the Thorn — a race of aliens that occupied their world, destroying those that stood in their way. Recruiting the locals to aid their Shrike troopers, the Thorn are hunting down all those with magical abilities, a power they’ve been strip-mining for their own ends. Wizard Ablard, ork Crixus and dryad Princess Yarrow believe they may have the means to stop them…

Writer: Dan Abnett Art: Mark Harrison Letters: Ellie de Ville

The mid 21st century. Earth has a heavily armed defence network, and any ET arrivals are housed in the Exo Segregation Zone, known as the GREY AREA, which is policed by squads of Exo Transfer Control officers like Adam Bulliet and his team — wife Birdy, linguist Kymn, weapons expert Feo, and alien transfer Resting Bitch Face. Kymn and Bitch, thought KIA, were actually seconded to a black-ops unit led by an insane bigot named Grell. It’s believed he’s going to disrupt the imminent Congruence talks…
