Part of Durham Red
Illustrated by Carlos Ezquerra

Durham Red teams up with Jonny Alpha to bring in kidnappers who've gone into the past to capture the US president, Ronald Reagan.

SCI-FI TO SINK YOUR TEETH INTO!

Following the Atomic War of 2150, Britain has been devastated by nuclear holocaust. The survivors rebuilt their lives, but many were warped by the mutating effects of Strontium 90 fallout. These mutants were forced to grow up in ghettos and take the only job open to them – bounty hunting.

Durham Red is one of these unfortunate beings. Ostracized by many of her kind due to her vampiric mutation, she has used her unique talents to become one of the toughest ‘Strontium Dogs’ in the universe. In this explosive introduction to the character, Durham Red teams up with fellow bounty hunter Johnny Alpha, to rescue President Ronald Reagan from a group of militant, alien terrorists!

Written by John Wagner (A History of Violence) and Alan Grant (Batman) with art by Carlos Ezquerra (Judge Dredd), Durham Red proves that the female of the species is definitely more deadly than the male!

John Wagner has been scripting for 2000 AD for more years than he cares to remember. His creations include Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog, Ace Trucking, Al’s Baby, Button Man and Mean Machine. Outside of 2000 AD his credits include Star Wars, Lobo, The Punisher and the critically acclaimed A History of Violence.

With over 300 2000 AD stories to his name – not to mention over 250 Daily Star Judge Dredd strips – Alan Grant’s prolific creative record speaks for itself. Outside the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic, Grant is well-known to Batman fans following a lengthy run on various incarnations of the title. More recently he has adapted Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novels Kidnapped and Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde in Graphic Novel format with artist Cam Kennedy.

Carlos Ezquerra was the co-creator of Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog, Rat Pack, Major Eazy and many other fan favourite characters, he designed the classic original Dredd costume as well as visually conceptualising Mega-City One. In addition to these credits he also illustrated A.B.C. Warriors, Judge Anderson, Tharg the Mighty, and Cursed Earth Koburn amongst many other stories. Outside of the ‘Galaxy’s Greatest Comic’, Ezquerra illustrated the first Third World War episodes in Crisis magazine, and become a regular collaborator with Garth Ennis, working on Adventures in the Rifle Brigade, Bloody Mary, Just a Pilgrim, Condors, The Magnificent Kevin and two special Preacher episodes. He died in 2018 but his profound influence on the world of comic art cannot be overstated.
