Judge Dredd: Deep In The Heart
by Michael Carroll (w) Tiernan Trevallion (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)
Mega-City One, 2138 AD. Home to over 72 million citizens, this urban hell is situated along the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America, where unemployment is rife, boredom universal and crime is rampant. Tensions rest on a knife-edge and only the zero-tolerance Judges — future lawmen empowered to dispense instant justice — can stop total anarchy. Toughest of them all is JUDGE
DREDD — he is the Law! Now, Dredd has a fugitive to find in Texas City...

Kingmaker
by Ian Edginton (w) Leigh Gallagher (a) Ellie De Ville (l)
The people of the Nine Kingdoms had thought that the undead Ichnar the Wraith King was the biggest threat to peace and freedom, but they hadn’t reckoned without the Thorn — a race of aliens that unexpectedly arrived and occupied their world, destroying those that stood in their way. Recruiting the locals to aid their Shrike troopers, they’ve been hunting down all those with magical abilities — including the wizard Ablard...

Hope: ... For The Future
by Guy Adams (w) Jimmy Broxton (a) Simon Bowland (l)
An alternate 1940s Hollywood. WWII is over, victory having been secured by occult means. Now, magic is a part of everyday life, its practitioners commonplace. Mallory HOPE is one such skilled operative, though calling on the dark arts takes its toll on the user. He’s also a private investigator, hired for all manner of down n’ dirty jobs, and now his services are required to find a missing boy, the child star Buster Ritz!...

The Order: Wyrm War
by Kek-W (w) John Burns (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)
Seventeenth-century France. The writer Cyrano de Bergerac lies on his deathbed, wanting to tell one last story before he passes — a tale of how he became part of a group of warriors known as THE ORDER, who throughout the centuries have been protecting man from the Wyrms. At certain points in history, these creatures can break through from their dimension and into ours — but something is disrupting the timeline...

Kingdom: As It Is In Heaven
by Dan Abnett (w) Richard Elson (a) Ellie De Ville (l)
Earth, the far future. Mankind has been all but destroyed, those still surviving forced into hiding by Them — insectile creatures that have taken over the world. Charged with protecting humanity are genetically engineered dog-soldiers like Gene the Hackman — savage warriors that patrol the wilderness, keeping Them off their Masters’ lawn. Now, Gene has escaped offworld and been given a home on the Masters’ orbital station...
