Judge Dredd » The Satanist (Part 7)
Mega-City One, 2125. Following the Great Atom War in 2070, much of planet Earth was reduced to uninhabitable radioactive hell. Vast metropolis Mega-City One rose from the nuclear ashes along the eastern seaboard of post-apocalyptic North America to house 400 million citizens. With the poisonous Black Atlantic to the east and the barren Cursed Earth to the west, people are crammed into giant citi-blocks. This urban nightmare is an overcrowded melting pot, constantly boiling over into violence. Every citizen is a potential criminal - and with unemployment endemic and boredom universal, tensions run a relentless knife-edge. Only the Judges can prevent total anarchy - empowered to dispense instant justice, there future lawman are judge, jury and executioner. Toughest of them all is JUDGE DREDD - he is the Law!
Strontium Dog » The Tax Dodge (Part 7)
Late 22nd century. In 2125 atomic war broke out on Earth, and Britain was devastated by nuclear holocaust. With the major cities reduced to radioactive wastelands, the survivors attempted to rebuild their lives, but many were warped by the mutating effects of Strontium 90 fallout. Those unaffected by the radiation poisoning grew to fear and despise the 'mutants', and they became a victimised underclass. Unable to live or work amongst the 'norms', mutants were forced to grow up in ghettos and take the only job open to them - bounty hunting. These Search/Destroy Agents hunt criminals too dangerous for the Galactic Crime Commission. One such STRONTIUM DOG is Johnny Alpha, whose eyes can emit piercing Alpha rays and enable him to see through solid objects. Together with his norm partner Wulf Sternhammer, he's a good man in a bad galaxy...
Leviathan » Leviathan (Part 6)
In July 1928, the biggest ocean-going vessel the world has ever seen - the LEVIATHAN - was launched from its giant dry-dock moored in the Irish Sea on its maiden voyage to New York. Housing twenty-eight thousand passengers and crew, complete with acres of parks, ballrooms, cinemas, a railway and even a zoo, the ship is more a floating city than cruise liner. But twenty years after its launch, the Leviathan still has not reached its destination...
Past Imperfect » The Man They Couldn't Hang (Part 1)
Forget what you think you know, Earthlets, about your species' past. Take nothing for granted when it comes to human history. What has gone before is just as open to speculation as an unknown future. So welcome to an alternative glimpse of a moment in your planet's past, where events turned out very differently, and the consequences could've changed the way you lived forever. Take, for example, highwayman Dick Turpin - what if one of his victims proved far more dangerous than he...?
Sinister Dexter » Junk Bond (Part 1)
The swollen city of Downlode lies sprawled across the heart of future Europe like a hit-and-run victim. Here, life is cheap and money can buy you anything - so if you want somebody whacked, you can't buy better bullet-monkeys than Finnegan SINISTER and Ramone DEXTER. The city's primo hitmen, they claim they only kill fellow members of the underworld, but when a gun-shark smells blood he's as dangerous as his namesake. You name it, they maim it...
