The complete story collected in paperback for the very first time, with a brand new cover from comics legend Mick McMahon.
Mega-City One, 2100. This post-apocalyptic city of the future is blighted by overcrowding, poverty and misery. With each of the 400 million citizens a potential criminal, order is maintained by future lawmen known as the Judges who have the power to act as judge, jury and executioner. Toughest of them all is Judge Dredd – he is the law!
A deadly plague developed during the brutal ‘Great Germ War’ has reached the futuristic metropolis of Mega-City Two, located on the West Coast of the USA. Charged with delivering a life-saving vaccine to the citizens of the disease-ridden city, Judge Dredd and a small crew of Judges, war droids and the lawbreaking biker, Spikes Harvey Rotten, must travel a thousand miles across the radioactive wasteland known as ‘the Cursed Earth.’
Experience the complete Cursed Earth saga, collected in an oversize paperback after the instant sell-out hardcover – a sparkling action-packed parody from Pat Mills and John Wagner, complete with sumptuous colour spreads from Brian Bolland and Mick McMahon.
His characters all spiky lines and outsized boots, Mike McMahon – also known as Mick – co-created perennial 2000 AD favourites The V.C.s, and provided Tharg with many classic episodes of Judge Dredd, Ro-Busters, A.B.C. Warriors and Sláine. Outside of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic, he drew an adventure with the original Cybermen for Doctor Who Magazine; Sonic the Hedgehog for Sonic the Comic; and, in America, issues of Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight and the mini-series Tattered Banners.
