Judge Dredd: Grinder
by Ken Niemand (writer) Nick Dyer (artist) Gary Caldwell (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. With the toxic Black Atlantic on one side and the irradiated Cursed Earth on the other, unemployment is endemic, boredom rife, and crime rampant.

Hope: In The Shadows
by Guy Adams (writer) Jimmy Broxton (artist) Jim Campbell (letterer)
An alternate 1940s USA. WWII is over, victory having been secured by occult means, and consequently magic is a part of everyday life.

When police are called to an address in Cambridge, little do they know of what lies within its walls...

by Dan Abnett (writer) INJ Culbard (artist) Simon Bowland (letterer)
The late 21st century, and through environmental catastrophe and industrial overload Earth has been reduced to a wasteland.
