It’s mutie motor mania with Judge Dredd in the latest issue of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic!
Welcome to the weekly circuit-charger that is 2000 AD!
This Prog we say farewell to Scarlet Traces as the deep-space drama of Cold War reaches its fiery climax, but fear not, the series will return.
Meanwhile, commencing within these ghafflebette pages is a new arc for Hunted, the Nu Earth-set thriller from Gordon Rennie and PJ Holden focusing on the ruthless figure of the Traitor General, dodging enemies he’s garnered amongst both the Norts and the Southers. Now, in Furies, survivors from the first series are determined to bring the TG down, but as Rogue Trooper himself found, he’s a most slippery villain…
Elsewhere, Judge Dredd tears up in the Cursed Earth as he goes head to head with the mutant hoverod racer Sick Pete in a bid to save some Mega-City juves, Defoe interrogates the living dead to track down who has been controlling them, and Kurtis gets one step closer to finding the figure behind the human-trafficking in Brink. All in all, another storming issue guaranteed to tickle your Thrill-receptors, with the droids working twenty-four hours a day to ensure the Galaxy’s Greatest remains, truly, the only comic you humans will ever need. Disregard those other titles crowding the shelves and remember: keep it zarjaz, Terrans!

JUDGE DREDD // HOVORODS
by TC Eglington (w) Brendan McCarthy (a) Annie Parkhouse (l)
Mega-City One, 2139 AD. Home to over 72 million citizens, this urban hell is situated along the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America. Unemployment is rife, poverty widespread, and crime is rampant. Tensions rest on a constant knife-edge, and only the zero-tolerance Judges — empowered to dispense instant justice — can stop total anarchy. Toughest of them all is JUDGE DREDD — he is the Law!

1968. It is several decades since Mars waged war on Earth, and the major nations have access to Martian-derived technology. Britain, however, is still recovering from Martian bombardment in the 1940s, when much of the south of England was destroyed.
