Judge Dredd Megazine 430 is out now!
This month we reach the final episode of The Returners: Heartswood, and we were very sad to hear of the sudden death of writer Si Spencer in February. Si had been a part of the creative line-up of the Meg during its formative years in the nineties, creating Harke & Burr with Dean Ormston, and The Creep with Kevin Cullen, and had a parallel career working in TV, script-editing the likes of Eastenders, The Bill and Grange Hill.
He’d returned to the Meg in the last four years, writing HAVN and The Returners, the last arc of which, Amazonia, he’d just about completed. That series will commence in a couple of issues’ time, but in the meantime inside you’ll find an obituary from Karl Stock as creators such as Ormston, Gordon Rennie, Garth Ennis and David Bishop warmly recollect the memories of their friend.
Elsewhere, we have the latest episodes of Megatropolis and Deliverance, a complete Dredd thriller, and the first of two Devlin Waugh single-parters by Aleš Kot and Mike Dowling that will lead into a major storyline, The Reckoning, starting in Meg 432!
