Mega-City One, 2080
Judge Joe Dredd’s fist year on the streets as a full-eagle judge.
Bred for justie and trained in the law; Dredd’s no helpless rookie.
But he’s not the seasoned veteran we know either...
Three iconic Dredd writers – Carroll, Ewing and Smith – are brought together for the fist tie in Judge Dredd: Year One, the fist print omnibus collection in the new series from Abaddon Books.
City Fathers by Matt Smith
The Brutal murder of a Justie Department-sanctined spy uncovers something new and dangerous in the sectors’ murky black market. Unless Dredd can stop it, chaos will be unleashed.
“Writer Mat Smith has a fantastic handle on the chaos that is Mega City One.” – comicvine.com on Judge Dredd: Year One #2 from IDW
Cold Light of Day by Michael Carroll
A savage killing spree results in the death of two highly-regarded Judges, and many consider Dredd to be responsible: a decision he made fie years earlier – while he was stil a cadet – has come back to haunt him.
“Both Carroll and Smith totally capture the character before he became the legend, and both authors defty capture the internal monologue of the very stoic Dredd.” – SFX.com on Cold Light of Day and City Fathers
Wear Iron by Al Ewing (previously unpublished)
“Wear iron, that’s the rule.” Paul Strader is a stik-up man, and a stoned cold professional. But when he gets in over his head, he has to risk everything on the word of a corrupt lawman, and break every rule he has. Every rule but one.
“This is cold, abrupt, driven Dredd... This is Ewing channelling the very best of John Wagner.” – FP International on Trifecta
Al Ewing is a major new writer whose work in US and UK comics has seen him hailed as the most exciting new voice in the field.
