FIND YOURSELF ANOTHER BATTLE

The last stories featuring the heroes of  the Battlefields series, by writer Garth Ennis and artists  Russ Braun and Carlos Ezquerra. In the dying days of the Second World War, a fiery crash leaves Russian fighter pilot Anna Kharkova badly wounded and exiled from her own people. Anna begins an odyssey that will take her from the killing skies of the Cold War to the horrific Soviet punishment camps, her doubts about the cause she fought for growing all the while. But at the top of the world, high above the freezing Arctic Ocean, the former Night Witch finds she has one last card to play, in The Fall and Rise of Anna Kharkova.

April, 1951: as massed Chinese armies descend on UN forces defending South Korea, a British infantry brigade digs in amidst the hills of the Imjin River sector. With them are the Centurion tanks of the 8th King’s Royal Irish Hussars, including tough WW2 veteran Sergeant Stiles. But Stiles is a man haunted by the horrors  of his past, and when the Communist  offensive smashes into the tiny British force, he must battle his own demons along with the enemy hordes. The story of the Tankies reaches its violent conclusion, in The Green Fields Beyond.

As an added bonus, artist Jim Fern will be providing all-new covers for every issue when the series makes its monthly debut this summer. The Free Comic Book Day special will feature a newly colored cover by the inimitable Brian Bolland.

The post-apocalyptic world created over thousands of pages of 2000 A.D. is one of the richest in comics history, and IDW couldn’t be more excited to continue bringing that to new generations of fans.

As always, fans are encouraged to make their own decisions, but this summer it should be advised that not buying Judge Dredd Classics could result in life in the Iso-Cubes!

IDW and 2000 AD Take Dredd Back to Year One!

Though Judge Joseph Dredd’s exploits have changed the post-apocalyptic sprawl of Mega-City One forever, there was a Mega-City One before Dredd ever hopped aboard a Lawmaster. In March 2013’s Judge Dredd: Year One, Eagle Award-winning 2000 AD Editor-in-Chief Matt Smith takes up arms with Dredd veterans Simon Coleby on interiors and Greg Staples on covers to deliver the thrilling exploits of a younger Judge Dredd!

One would be hard pressed to call the young Dredd “fresh-faced” or “eager,” but there is certainly a learning curve to policing Mega-City One’s vast and vicious criminal element. This thrilling period of Dredd’s career was previously explored by Smith in Judge Dredd: Year One – City Fathers, the hit e-novella published by 2000 AD earlier this year, but was immediately recognized as an avenue perfectly suited for a different story told through a comic-book miniseries.

In “The Long, Hard Road,” Smith and Coleby tell a tale where “all the young juves, carry the news,” only in this case, that news is that juves across sector start manifesting psychic abilities. Dredd must team up for the first time with Psi-Division to combat the spreading chaos. But just what is causing the psi-outbreaks as it crosses the dimensions—and what does it have in store for Mega-City One?

By taking to the comics page and telling a new tale from Dredd’s early years on the force, IDW and 2000 AD are thrilled to be bringing fans a Dredd story the likes of which they’ve never seen; not to mention a rare look at the kind of harrowing futuristic criminal saga that built Dredd’s signature grimace. Like the old saying goes, “You can’t strike fear into the deranged heart of a criminal underbelly without breaking a few legs.”

In addition to the stellar team of Mega City One veterans on the book, dedicated Dredd fans will also find variant covers by Cerebus mastermind Dave Sim and Dredd co-creator Carlos Ezquerra in the offing! Fans are urged to appear at their nearest comic shop for judgment, lest they face eternity in the iso-cubes!
