Judge Dredd: Year One
Released 28 October 2014
Judge Joe Dredd’s first year on the streets as a full-eagle judge. Bred for justice and trained in the law; Dredd’s no helpless rookie. But he’s not the seasoned veteran we know either…

“This is cold, abrupt, driven Dredd… This is Ewing channelling the very best of John Wagner.”
