Judge Dredd Megazine #401 is out now!
After the jumping-on issue of #400 we're back with the second episodes of Lawless, Blunt, Storm Warning and The Torture Garden, plus there’s a complete Dredd thriller from Rory McConville and Clint Langley!
With Halloween just around the corner – Nick Percival’s ghoulish wraparound cover for this Meg seems nicely apposite – there’s another Scream & Misty Special demanding your attention, following on from last year’s successful resurrection of the McNasty brand, and we catch up with some of the creators getting their creep on (and if you want some classic Scream! chills, check out volume one of the collected The Thirteenth Floor).
We also have a peek this issue at the brand-new roleplaying game Judge Dredd and the Worlds of 2000 AD, which allows you to create all manner of adventures in the Mega-City One sandbox. It’s currently being funded on Kickstarter – it blew through its initial goal in nine minutes! – so take a look at worldsof2000ADrpg.com.
Don't forget that if you buy this issue in print direct from our webshop within the next month you'll not pay a penny in postage fees in the UK! And if you subscribe to the Megazine you'll get a FREE print of each month's cover with each issue!
Judge Dredd Megazine #401 is out now from all good newsagents and comic book stores, plus digitally from our webshop and apps!
