Judge Dredd: An Honest Man
by Kenneth Niemand (writer) Tom Foster (artist) Chris Blythe (colourist) Annie Parkhouse (letterer)

Mega-City One, 2144 AD. Home to over 180 million citizens, this urban hell is situated along the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America. Crime is rampant and only the Judges — empowered to dispense instant justice — can stop total anarchy. Toughest of them all is JUDGE DREDD — he is the Law!

by John Tomlinson (writer) Steven Austin (artist) Simon Bowland (letterer)

Out in the vast reaches of the universe, there are an infinite number of stories waiting to be told.

by Ian Edginton (writer) Tiernen Trevallion (artist) Annie Parkhouse (letterer)

In 1980, the diary of German soldier Hans Schmitt was discovered in Berlin, detailing events that occurred in 1941, when he encountered the terrifying vampire Captain Constanta and his Romanian platoon.
