    Meg 456 last edited by erhnamdjim on 05/18/23 10:34AM View full history

    With the new five-issue series of Battle Action that starts the end of this month. Ennis writes one of the stories per issue with a different artist, and he’s joined by a whole bunch of other creators working on characters such as Major Eazy, Death Squad, D-Day Dawson and more. For #1, John Wagner returns to the naval drama of HMS Nightshade, drawn by Dan Cornwell – learn more about the all-star line-up as Karl Stock chats to the writers and artists involved in this issue!

    Indeed, two of those creators, Dan Abnett and Phil Winslade, are back in this very Meg as Lawless returns, picking up on the story from last year, with Metta Lawson now aligning herself with the organised crime outfit plaguing Badrock. Elsewhere, there’s all-out action in the latest instalments of Judge Dredd, Death Metal Planet, Dreadnoughts and Spector – and to coincide with the new Battle Action series, we reprint Ennis and Keith Burns’ Johnny Red mini-series, originally published by Titan in 2015. Fall in and enjoy, citizens!

    • Judge Dredd - One-Eyed Jack (Part 5) (Ken Niemand - Kieran McKeown)

      Mega-City One, 2145 AD. This vast urban hell on the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America is home to over 200 million citizens. Crime is rampant, and stemming the tide of chaos are the Judges. Toughest of them all is Judge Dredd – he is the Law! Now, Dredd and Rico are investigating a link between 1970s New York and the twenty-second century…

    • Spector - Incorruptible (Part 2) (John Wagner - Carlos Ezquerra)

      In a near-future US city, corruption within the branches of government has reached unsustainable levels. City Hall is rotten to the core, and the police force is equally on the take. To that end, Spector is created, a robot detective – beyond bribery and untainted by potential malfeasance – charged with rooting out criminal elements. But the android inspector is making many enemies…

    • Dark Judges - Death Metal Planet (Part 8) (David Hine - Nick Percival)

      After the events on the Mayflower, in which the Dark Judges were ejected into space, they ended up on the colony world of Dominion, which they proceeded to decimate. When Mega- City marines were sent in, assisted by survivor Rosco, the planet was destroyed. Worshipped like gods on Thanatopia by a death-cult, they’re now part of a death-metal festival…

    • Lawless - Most Wanted (Part 1) (Ales Kot - Rob Richardson)
      Colonial Marshal Metta Lawson was appointed to the frontier township of Badrock on the planet 43 Rega, intent on stamping her authority on the colony. But in doing so, Lawson made many enemies, including Munce, Inc., the mega-corporation that funded Badrock. Now, having been thrown off the force, and becoming a vigilante, she’s turned to organised crime…
    • Anderson, Psi Division - The King of the Six Sectors (Part 2) (Matt Smith - Carl Critchlow)

      In an adventure from Cassandra Anderson’s early days in the Mega-City One Psi-Division, writer Matt Smith and artist Carl Critchlow present “King of the Six Sectors.” It all starts with Anderson awaking from an unusually strong vision of an attack on the Megapolitan Museum showcasing Cursed Earth artifacts…
