Judge Dredd » The Forsaken (Part 4)
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!
Inspired by Clint Eastwood in Dirty Harry; the film poster for Death Race 2000
The name Judge Dredd came from Pat Mills who was originally going to use it for a different character
The first Judge Dredd story published was drawn by Mike McMahon, not co-creator Carlos Ezquerra. Ezquerra was so upset he didn't draw Dredd for five years afterwards, only returning for the Apocalypse War mega-epic.
Sinister Dexter » Witless Protection - Malone Again (Part 2)
The swollen city of Downlode lies sprawled across the heart of future Europe like a hit-and-run victim. Here, life is cheap - if you want someone whacked, you can't buy better bullet monkeys than Finnigan SINISTER and Ramone DEXTER, the city's primo hitmen.
Inspired by John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson in Pulp Fiction.
Artist Jason Brashill declined the chance to co-create Sinister Dexter but he did paint the cover image to promote the characters' first appearance in Prog 981.
Sinister is Latin for left, while Dexter is Latin for right

Zombo » Planet Zombo (Part 9)
A Government-run Earth, the far future (trust your Government). An experiment in mixing human and zombie DNA, ZOMBO was created in an attempt to control the sentient Deathworlds - obedient, docile and friendly, his hunger for flesh is his only vice.
