This September 21st, movie audiences across the world will be plunged into the dark and nasty world of Judge Dredd, the future lawman from the pages of legendary British comic book 2000 AD.
DREDD 3D is the R-rated adaptation of the comic book from DNA Films, the British production company behind 28 Days Later and Sunshine.
Starring Karl Urban (RED, Lord of the Rings, Star Trek) as Judge Joe Dredd and Olivia Thirlby (Juno) as Judge Cassandra Anderson, the movie is gritty and violent, and promises to finally and truly bring the insane world of Mega-City One from the comic book page to the silver screen.
To mark this, 2000 AD and Abaddon Books have collected three novels starring the ultimate lawman of the future in one omnibus edition.
In Dredd Vs Death, Judge Dredd teams up with his movie co-star Judge Anderson to investigate a trail of carnage left by a cult obsessed with with Judge Death, who believes all life is a crime.
In Kingdom of the Blind, Judge Dredd hits the streets as senior Judges gather for a treaty signing, just as a notorious crime boss prepares to step out of the shadows and seize control of the city.
And in The Final Cut, Dredd uncovers a grisly series of murders that point the finger at the an underground movie scene with unlikely allies in the corridors of power.
Written by Gordon Rennie, David Bishop, and Matthew Smith, this omnibus of Dredd stories is the perfect introduction to movie-goers keen to read more of the eponymous lawman’s violent exploits in a world gone to hell.
