Recruited to bring peace to the civil war-ravaged frontier colonies on the Red Planet, the Mek-nificent Seven comprise leader Hammerstein, the mystical Deadlock, sharpshooter Joe Pineapples, the brutish Mongrol, voice of Mars Steelhorn, the treacherous Blackblood, and the pin-headed battle-tank Mek-Quake.
Bec & Kawl » Freakshow (Part 5)

Judge Dredd » Heist (Part 2)
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.
The Acoma System, a Souther-held warzone in their galaxywide conflict with the Norts. 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...

But it wasn't always like this - once there was an Empire that believed in honour, justice and a dashed fine cup of tea...
