2000AD has revealed that the Dark Judges will be making their return in September for Dreams of Deadworld, a new four part series from writer Kek-W and artist Dave Kendall.
Artist Dave Kendall was inspired by a haunting dream to create his own versions of John Wagner and Brian Bolland’s classic Judge Death, Judge Mortis, Judge Fire, and Judge Fear characters – and now those versions are getting their own strip in 2000 AD.
The story explores what happens to the fearsome foursome after their slaughter of the entire population but before they discovered the dimension jump technology that allowed them to visit Judge Dredd’s Mega-City One.
Each episode will focus on a particular Dark Judge as they stalk the remains of their once-teeming world, unveiling more of about their origins. In the first episode, Judge Fire travels beneath the waves to discover treachery by members of their terrifying department of twisted justice never before seen!
Dreams of Deadworld will begin in 2000 AD Prog 1946 on September 2nd.
