In this issue:

Judge Dredd: Tread Softly
by Michael Carroll (writer) Simon Coleby (artist) John Charles (colourist) Annie Parkhouse (letterer)

Mega-City One, 2143 AD. Home to over 160 million citizens, this urban hell is situated along the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America. With unemployment rife and boredom universal, tensions rest on a knife-edge. Crime is rampant and only the Judges — zero-tolerance cops empowered to dispense instant justice — can stop total anarchy.

Anything is possible in these twisted trips into the galaxy’s dark side. Abandon your preconceptions, and expect the unexpected...
