This game-changing beginning to the biggest Judge Dredd story ever written, has been produced by comics' legend and Judge Dredd co-creator John Wagner (A History of Violence, Button Man), and features the incredible artwork of Staz Johnson (Detective Comics, Catwoman), Henry Flint (Zombo, Shakara), Colin MacNeil (Song of the Surfer, Insurrection) and Ben Willsher (Lenny Zero, Doctor Who).
One of the most influential names in the British comics industry, John Wagner started his professional career in the 1960s, working for DC Thompson in Dundee. Sub-editing various titles including Romeo, Wagner went freelance in the early seventies, forming a writing partnership with Pat Mills. Soon after, Wagner then made the move down south, joining IPC’s staff, where he initially edited girls’ titles, Sandie and Princess Tina, before helping to develop Battle Picture Weekly. Appointed as editor to the ailing boys’ comic Valiant, Wagner had an instant impact, co-creating and writing the hard-hitting cop strip One-Eyed Jack. He is best known as the co-creator of both Judge Dredd and Strontium Dog for 2000 AD
