Mega-City One - the future metropolis where crime and danger prevail. Keeping order are the Judges, a hardened police force acting as judge, jury and executioner. Toughest of them all is Judge Dredd. He Is the law and these are his stories.

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.

Garth Ennis first came to prominence as writer on Troubled Souls, the Northern Ireland-set series he created with John McCrea for Crisis. As well as scripting its sequel, For a Few Troubles More, and True Faith (created with Warren Pleece) for that title, he was also a regular contributor to 2000 AD and the Judge Dredd Megazine, writing Judge Dredd, Strontium Dogs, The Corps, Time Flies, Chopper, and Sleeze ‘n’ Ryder. Outside of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic, his well-received run on Hellblazer was followed by Preacher, the hugely successful DC Vertigo series he created with Steve Dillon, as well as titles such as Hitman, Goddess, Bloody Mary, and a lengthy run on The Punisher. He is currently writing The Boys and war series Battlefields, both of which are published by Dynamite Entertainment.

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.

Since his Future Shock debut in Prog 37, Brett Ewins has been one of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic’s most beloved artists. Co-creator of the classic Bad Company, Ewins has also contributed to A.B.C. Warriors, Daily Star Dredd, Judge Anderson, Judge Dredd, Kelly, Mega-City One, Rogue Trooper, Ro-Jaws, Robo-Tales and Universal Soldier.

He also created Johnny Nemo, which is now enjoying great success in Cyberosia Publishing’s new US edition.
