    Welcome to your weekly cerebral hyper-hit of cosmic zarjazness courtesy of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic, Terrans!

    It’s that time of the week again, Terrans, when Tharg the Might’s crack squad of creator-bots beam another thirty-two pages of scintillating sci-fi action into your eager brainpans!

    Two new stories start this issue: Judge Dredd: Special Relationship by Rob Williams and Patrick Goddard picks up plot threads from last year’s The Hard Way as tensions rise between MC-1 and Brit-Cit in the wake of the Atlantis attack, and Malice in Plunderland by the Abnett and Bettin droids is the penultimate chapter in the Bulletopia arc.

    Add to that the final instalment of Reel One of Hope: …In the Shadows — the Adams and Broxton meks will be back for Reel Two this autumn — and the latest episodes of Brink and Skip Tracer, and it’s a scorchingly scrotnig line-up!!

    Cover: Greg Staples

    • Judge Dredd - Special Relationship (Part 1) (Rob Williams - Patrick Goddard)

    Mega-City One, 2144 AD. Home to over 180 million citizens, this urban hell is situated along the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America. Crime is rampant, and only the Judges — empowered to dispense instant justice — can stop total anarchy. Toughest of them all is JUDGE DREDD — he is the Law! Now, in the wake of the attack on the Atlantis complex, it is being rebuilt by a joint Mega-City and Brit-Cit taskforce…

    • Hope - In The Shadows Reel One (Part 12) (Guy Adams - Jimmy Broxton)

    An alternate 1940s USA. WWII is over, victory having been secured by occult means, and consequently magic is a part of everyday life. Mallory HOPE is one such skilled operative, though calling on the dark arts takes its toll on the user. He’s also a P.I., hired for all manner of down n’ dirty jobs, and being based in Los Angeles means he’s often involved in the movie business — and a film production appears cursed…

    • Dexter - Bulletopia: Malice in Plunderland (Part 1) (Dan Abnett - Tamil Bettin)

    Gun-sharks Finnigan SINISTER and Ramone DEXTER were the best hitmen money could buy in the future city of Downlode. Having whacked Holy Moses Tanenbaum, a ganglord from an alternate dimension, they found killing him reset the continuum, meaning no one knew who they were. But now a rogue A.I. is at large, and Dexter, Carrie Hosanna and Billi Octavo are on the run, trying to get to sanctuary in Mangapore…

    • Skip Tracer - Valhalla (Part 3) (James Peaty - Paul Marshall)

    The Cube, the 27th century. This vast city floating in the depths of space was refitted by the Earth-led Consociation as a solution to a universal housing problem. It’s home to every kind of undesirable and wanted criminal. That’s where SKIP TRACER Nolan Blake came in, a former soldier turned psi-tracker. But now Blake, who has been hiding out with his daughter for the last fifteen years, has been brought in…

    • Brink - Mercury Retrograde (Part 18) (Dan Abnett - INJ Culbard)

    The late 21st century, and through environmental catastrophe and industrial overload Earth has been reduced to a wasteland. Mankind finally evacuated the planet in 2072 and millions were housed in a number of deep-space Habitats. But life on these cramped, overcrowded stations is tense, often spilling over into madness. Sects are rife, and both the Habitat Security Division and certain journalists are investigating…
