Rebellion Releases — 8 November 2023

The greatest stories of one of science fiction's greatest heroines - rereleased in an easily accessible format perfect for new readers

Judge Cassandra Anderson of Psi Division is one of the greatest minds on the Judges' roster. As a precognitive telepath and empath, her quirks, such as her sense of humour, are tolerated by the otherwise oppressively strict Justice Department.

In Mega-City One, citizens live in fear under the iron fist of the Judges’ unyielding rule, but PSI Judge Cassandra Anderson knows it’s a flawed system. In the second volume of her Essential line, Anderson grapples with matters of faith and damnation, as a chance at eternal life comes at the cost of losing her mind forever, while her pursuit of a just system leads her to investigate a religious cult, and ultimately to engage in a battle of the minds with the most formidable of foes: Satan himself!

With exceptional art from Arthur Ranson, whose creative partnership with Alan Grant produced some of 2000 AD's most challenging and consequential stories, Satan thoughtfully explores faith against the backdrop of the Judge Department's system of absolute power.

As Anderson faces up to the living embodiment of evil - a man of wealth and taste indeed - she'll be pushed to the very limit of her abilities!

Out on 7 June 2024, Essential Judge Anderson: Satan is available to pre-order from all good book and comic book stores, as well as 2000 AD's webshop!

And now, this week's releases...
