Judge Dredd: The Cursed Earth Uncensored

The original Dredd epic complete, unexpurgated, and collected with its ‘banned’ material for the very first time in almost 40 years! Published in 2000 AD in 1978, The Cursed Earth was the first great Judge Dredd epic, but the story ran into trouble when two episodes – ‘Burger Wars’ and ‘Soul Food’ – featured parodies of Burger King, Ronald McDonald, the Jolly Green Giant, the Michelin Man, and a number of other prominent corporate characters in a raucous and shameless satire of American consumer culture. But now, following recent changes in UK law governing parody, Judge Dredd: The Cursed Earth Uncensored reprints the story in its entirety for the first time. Published on both sides of the Atlantic this week, this sparkling action-packed parody from Pat Mills (Charley’s War) and John Wagner (A History of Violence), complete with sumptuous colour spreads from Brian Bolland (The Killing Joke) and Mick McMahon (The Last American), is being produced in a deluxe hardcover edition featuring all the previously banned content. Using original artwork on loan from fans, the reproduction in this sumptuous hardcover edition is second to none and includes the colour centre spreads, also never before reprinted.
