Essential Judge Dredd
is the ideal series for those looking to discover the greatest stories of the ultimate lawman of the future!

From the war against democracy to fighting murderous undead superfiends, from the origins of Mega-City One to all-out nuclear war – it’s all here in gorgeous new collections.

Created by John Wagner (A History of Violence) and Carlos Ezquerra (Preacher), Judge Dredd is one of the world’s most famous comic book characters but 45 years of continuous weekly storytelling it can be difficult to know where to begin.

Essential Judge Dredd is specially curated to make it easy to jump on board and catch up with the classics from this groundbreaking, massively-influential comic book series. The series features some of the key storylines and most important mega-epics, including:

  • Essential Judge Dredd: America
  • Essential Judge Dredd: The Apocalypse War
  • Essential Judge Dredd: Origins
  • Essential Judge Dredd: Dredd vs Death
  • Essential Judge Dredd: Necropolis

So pick up the Essential Judge Dredd collections now and dive into the future-shocked world of Mega-City One – available in print from book stores, comic book stores, and online retailers or digitally through 2000 AD‘s webshop and app!

And now it's the turn of his some-time partner Judge Anderson to get the Essential treatment. Essential Judge Anderson kicks off with the new Shamballa collection, collecting some of the key stories of the psychic Judge, including 'Triad', 'Leviathan's Farewell' and the eponymous 'Shamballa' – some absolutely beautiful comics and it's a joy to be able to show them off in a new large-format collection.

Created in 1980 by John Wagner and Brian Bolland, Judge Cassandra Anderson of Justice Department's Psi Division is a psychic law enforcer protecting Mega-City One from all manner of threats both man-made and supernatural, from oridinary criminals to the undead superfiends, the Dark Judges!

Quirky, irreverent and headstrong, Anderson's quirks are tolerated by the oppressively strict Judges so long as she does her job – but her sense of justice and morality soon calls her to question the Law of the Judges in these landmark adventures, written by Alan Grant and featuring jaw-dropping art by Arthur Ranson and Mick Austin.

As Anderson battles to save Mega-City, psychic twins, and her friend Judge Corey from psychic attacks and their inner demons, her faith in the systems around her begins to crumble. And when the world is teetering on the brink of an apocalyptic collapse, it will take everything Anderson has to save the world at the ancient temple, Shamballa.

Grant’s run on Anderson, Psi Divison showcased a new depth for both 2000 AD and Anderson, as his stories took in the gamut of human emotion and spirituality. 'Shamballa' is to many, the quintessential Judge Anderson story, and it serves as the perfect opening volume of Rebellion’s new Essential Judge Anderson line.
