Episodes include:

Judge Dredd » Three Kings (part 1)

Mega-City One, 2142 AD. Home to over 140 million citizens, this urban hell is situated along the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America, with the irradiated wasteland known as the Cursed Earth to the west. Unemployment is rife, boredom universal and crime is rampant. Tensions rest on a knife-edge and only the zero-tolerance Judges can stop total anarchy. Toughest of them all is JUDGE DREDD — he is the Law!

Strontium Dog » Once Upon A Time In Der Vest (part 1)

Late 22nd century. After the Atomic Wars, many survivors were warped by the Strontium 90 fallout. These ‘mutants’ became a victimised underclass, forced into ghettos, and the only job open to them was bounty hunting. One such Search/Destroy agent, or STRONTIUM DOG, is Johnny Alpha, whose eyes emit piercing alpha waves. Partnered with his Viking buddy Wulf Sternhammer, they’re good men in a bad galaxy...

Survival Geeks » A Quiet Night In (part 1)

Once upon a time, sci-fi obsessives Clive, Rufus and Simon, plus reluctant housemate Sam and pet Cthulhu Howard, lived in what looked like a regular suburban two-up two-down but was in fact a craft for visiting other universes, powered by misfiring transdimensional technology. Often to be found plunging through the planes of reality, they had numerous adventures — but now they’re older and gone their separate ways...

Visions of Deadworld » Girls Gotta Eat (part 1)

The planet that eventually became known as DEADWORLD was once a regular civilisation existing in a dimension parallel to our own. But the end of days is coming, and creatures known as the Dark Judges are spreading their contagion, exterminating all life, which they see as a crime. Zombie ‘greys’ are doing their bidding, having consumed the Dead Fluids, and other entities stalk the streets, preying on survivors...

PROTEUS VEX » The Shadow Chancellor (part 1)

Another galaxy, the far future. The centuries-long war between the Alliance and the Obdurate people is over, a conflict brought to an end with the deaths of billions when the Alliance teleported a dying white dwarf star into the Obdurate system. Imperium agent PROTEUS VEX was charged with finding Chancellor Rho 7 Baryon, and when the flesh-pilot that controls Vex entered Baryon’s body he absorbed some of his memories...

Sláine » Dragontamer (part 1)

Albion. Celtic warrior SLÁINE united the tribes of the Earth Goddess Danu and became the first High King of Ireland, but is now a wanderer, seeking adventure where the Goddess directs him. Having battled the Drune Lords on the Isle of Monadh, he’s now travelled to the city of New Troy, with the intention of taking the fight for Albion’s freedom to the tyrannical Emperor Brutus and his terrifying dragons...

Hershey » The Brutal (part 1)

Judge Barbara Hershey was one of Justice Department’s most respected and capable young officers before she became Chief Judge. Leading the city through numerous challenges, she only occasionally clashed with Dredd — until the ‘Small House’ affair and the revelation of Judge Smiley’s clandestine operations on her watch. Now, seriously ill from a microbial virus, she’s faked her death to deal with Smiley’s legacy...

Tharg's Time Twisters » Time Hygiene (part 1)

Forget what you think you understand, Earthlets, about your species’ limited notion of time. Take nothing for granted when it comes to human history, or an unknowable future — the process of time can be broken, bent back on itself, or even sent in entirely the wrong direction. These complete head-spinning tales warp the very fabric of chronology itself, especially when the Time Hygiene Authority is involved...

Durham Red » Served Cold (part 1)

Late 22nd century. Of all the mutants that have operated as Search/Destroy agents, perhaps the most feared is vampire DURHAM RED, who requires blood to survive. Mistrusted by both the criminals she hunts and her fellow Strontium Dogs, Red has a formidable reputation that precedes her, and she will often kill her quarries as much as capturing them to satisfy her thirst. Now, though, she’s a wanted felon herself...
