A.B.C. Warriors » The Shadow Warriors (Part 6)
Mars, the far future. War droids created for a conflict that ended centuries ago, the A.B.C. WARRIORS are resistant to Atomic, Bacterial and Chemical warfare. Originally recruited to bring peace to the frontier colony world of Mars, the Mek-neficent Seven comprise leader Hammerstein, the mystical Deadlock, sharpshooter Joe Pineapples, the treacherous Blackblood, dim-witted Mek-Quake, the brutal Mongrol and recently revived Steelhorn. Following several years wandering the galaxy, the Warriors returned to Mars to find Medusa - the consciousness of the planet itself - rebelling against human terraformers.

Snow/Tiger » Pax Americana (Part 6)
USA, April 2003. Codenames SNOW and TIGER are agents of T.A.C.T.I.C (Trans-Atlantic Counter-Terrorist Intelligence Command), a joint British/American covert ops agency set up to combat international terrorism in all its forms.

Judge Dredd » Hard Day's Night (Part 3)
Mega-City One, 2130 AD. This vast urban nightmare on the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America is home to 400 million citizens, every one a potential criminal. With lawlessness rife, only the Judges can prevent total anarchy. These future lawmen are judge, jury and executioner. Toughest of them all is Judge Dredd - he is the law! Inspired by Clint Eastwood in Dirty Harry; the film poster for Death Race 2000. The name Judge Dredd came from Pat Mills who was originally going to use it for a different character. The first Judge Dredd story published was drawn by Mike McMahon, not co-creator Carlos Ezquerra. Ezquerra was so upset that he didn't draw Dredd for five years afterwards, only returning for the Apocalypse War mega-epic.
