Once a star-trooper and member of the battle unit known as THE V.C.s, Steve Smith is haunted by the memories of his fallen comrades.

The far future. The Ring is a galactic empire covering six planets, with Earth at its hub. Governed and populated almost exclusively by women - under the rule of Queen Hildegard - men within this society have no position other than for entertainment. Referred to as 'peacocks', they are used for the pleasure of the decadent noblewomen that make up the imperial court and whose pursuit of sex, drugs and partying - not to mention their constant desire for youth and rejuvenation - has meant the 1,000-year-old empire is in danger of collapse. Protecting the noble ladies are the Valkyries, who act as security guards, alert to any danger their wards may find themselves in - and it's a perilous universe out there...

Judge Dredd » Brothers Of The Blood (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! 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 that he didn't draw Dredd for five years afterwards, only returning for the Apocalypse War mega-epic.
