Part of Judge Dredd
Published by 2000 AD

Judges have the toughest job on the mean streets of Dredd's Mega-City One, and sometimes the temptations of crime are too much and they cross the line. This is what happens when Dredd finds out.

THE WRONG SIDE OF THE LAW!

It takes a special kind of cop to police the nightmarish streets of Mega-City One – a violent post-apocalyptic city built on top of North America’s old East Coast. An army of future lawmen, wielding the powers of judge, jury and executioner now keep order in this crime-ridden place. Known as the ‘Judges’, most of these men and women serve as the ultimate law enforcers – beyond reproach and resistant to corruption, they are the best the world has ever seen. But there’s always one or two who succumb to lawless behaviour and with years of intense training and experience to draw upon, these Judges are the most dangerous individuals on the planet!

This collection includes stories about those Judges too corrupt to uphold the law! From Judge Dredd co-creator John Wagner (A History of Violence) and comics superstar Mark Millar (Kick-Ass), featuring the amazing art of Chris Weston (The Filth), Will Simpson (Hellblazer), Steve Yeowell (The Invisibles) and Greg Staples (Bad Planet), amongst others.

John Wagner has been scripting for 2000 AD for more years than he cares to remember. His creations include Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog, Ace Trucking, Al’s Baby, Button Man and Mean Machine. Outside of 2000 AD his credits include Star Wars, Lobo, The Punisher and the critically acclaimed A History of Violence.

Chris Weston has drawn a vast array of 2000 AD and Megazine stories, including Indigo Prime, Downlode Tales, Future Shocks, Canon Fodder, Judge Dredd, Nemesis the Warlock, Nikolai Dante, Pulp Sci-Fi, Robo-Hunter, Rogue Trooper and Vector 13.
