Judge Dredd: Crusade By Grant Morrison And Mark Millar

With the Dredd film, starring Karl Urban, set to debut later this year, two of the world’s biggest comic book writers are brought together to send the world’s most famous lawman on a mission to find God!

Judge Dredd: Crusade sees Grant Morrison (Batman and Robin, All Star Superman) team up with Mark Millar (Kick Ass, Wanted) acclaimed artist Mick Austin (Doctor Who) in a new collection for the US and Canada – that has never been reprinted before – and comes with a brand new cover from comic book legend Brian Bolland.

In a riot of violence at the ends of the Earth, when a scientist returns from a 15-year deep space mission claiming to have a message from God himself, judges from all of the world’s Mega-Cities race to Antarctica to try and claim the secret for themselves.

Among them is the toughest future lawman of them all – Judge Dredd – but in the scramble to secure the scientist, the judges all brutally turn on each other as the prize proves too much to resist!

Meanwhile, a deadly agent from one of the world’s superpowers stalks through the warzone, hoping that the confusion will ease his path to securing the secrets of the cosmos!

In the back-up story The Frankenstein Division by Mark Millar and Carlos Ezquerra, the sinister judges of East Meg create the ultimate judge by stitching together pieces of their best. But when it goes on the rampage it heads for Mega-City One and the one man responsible for the death of its many ‘donors’ – Dredd himself!
