Megatropolis

An Art Deco reimagining of the world of Judge Dredd from the critically acclaimed artist of New York Times best-selling Batman: Death by Design.

Step in the unknown… step into Megatropolis

Experience the iconic city of Mega-City One as never before, in this visionary comic from Kenneth Niemand (Judge Dredd) and Dave Taylor (Judge DreddBatman). In this radical reimagining of the world of Judge Dredd, join disgraced Officer Amy Jarra and Detective Joe ‘choirboy’ Rico as they navigate the crime-ridden underbelly of the glamourous Metropolis, attempting to solve the murder of undercover Detective Fisher.

Transforming Mega-City One into an art deco cityscape, Niemand and Taylor spin a tale of futuristic noir with luscious art and jaw-dropping set pieces. This over-sized hardcover collection includes a gallery of cover art and never seen before concept sketches.

A Forces brat, Kenneth Niemand's first exposure to the world of Judge Dredd was through random copies of 2000 AD circulating in various RAF bases around the world. He now writes radio comedy, video games and, increasingly, bits and pieces of the world of Judge Dredd. 

Dave Taylor began drawing comics professionally for Marvel UK after many failed attempts at being a rock star drummer. He was head hunted by DC to work on a Batman one shot with Grendel writer/artist Matt Wagner, going on to work predominantly on Batman titles such as Batman: Shadow of the Bat (with Alan Grant), Detective Comics, Batman: Black and White and others. His collaboration with graphic designer extraordinaire Chip Kidd on Batman: Death by Design became a New York Times best seller (twice). Taylor's acclaimed adult only series Tongue Lash grew from his friendship with French comic Master Jean Moebius Giraud, who Taylor also worked with on an Arzak story. He has also produced work for TV, movies and the games industry and is presently employed by the United States Space Force as an extraterrestrial translator.
