Judge Dredd » Heist (Part 1)
Mega-City One, 2130 AD. This vast urban nightmare on the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America is home to 400 million citizens, every one a potential criminal. With lawlessness rife, only the Judges can prevent total anarchy. These future lawmen are judge, jury and executioner. Toughest of them all is Judge Dredd - he is the Law!

The first Judge Dredd story published was drawn by Mike McMahon, not co-creator Carlos Ezquerra. Ezquerra was so upset that he didn't draw Dredd for five years afterwards, only returning for the Apocalypse War mega-epic.

Centred around a gas giant, its ore-rich moons make it a valuable mining site, and the job of protecting the regular supply routes falls to the 86th Air Support Reconnaissance Squadron - more commonly known as THE 86ERS - a dumping ground for every failure and freak. Based in The Citadel, a giant asteroid fortress that was built by an alien race long before humanity's expansion into the universe, life amongst the 86ers is short and brutal - trust no one, especially not those in charge...
