Hot on the heels of the critically-acclaimed DREDD 3D movie and Day of Chaos and Trifecta - two of the biggest Judge Dredd stories in 35 years - comes the origin story of Mega-City One’s legendary lawman, in a brand new collection for North American readers.

For the first time, Judge Dredd: Origins tell the story of how the mind-boggling metropolis of Mega-City One was created, how the Judges rose to power under the ‘Father of Justice’ Judge Fargo, and the part played by the most famous Judge of all - Joseph Dredd.

Dredd co-creators John Wagner (A History of Violence) and Carlos Ezquerra (The Boys) are together again as they tell the unknown back story of their most famous character.From the reign of President Robert “Bad Bob” Booth to the devastation of the Atomic Wars and the suspension of the US Constitution, from Dredd’s ‘birth’ in a cloning tank to him delivering justice on the chaotic streets of this fledging police state with his brother Rico, Origins is the much-anticipated Dredd epic that is essential reading for both old and new fans of the lawman of the future.

Featuring a cover by Dredd legend Brian Bolland (Killing Joke), a special introductory tale featuring the art of Kev Walker (Thunderbolts, X-Men), a covers gallery featuring the talents of Jock (The Losers), John Higgins (Watchmen), Rufus Dayglo (Tank Girl), Simon Coleby (Simping Detective), and Boo Cook (Elephantmen), as well as an exclusive Carlos Ezquerra sketch gallery, this collection for the US and Canada is an absolute must for Judge Dredd readers and those who want to understand what makes him Britain’s greatest comic book export.
