Starting with a special Free Comic Book Day Edition on May 4th, IDW will be publishing the old classic stories from the Judge Dredd franchise, this time in full color under the name Judge Dredd Classics. The FCBD edition will feature the popular “Judge Death” story arc, written by John Wagner, illustrated by Brian Bolland, will also do the cover, and colored by Charlie Kirchoff. The series will then officially begin its monthly run in July, featuring colors by Kirchoff and will kick things off with the beloved “Block Mania”/”Apocalypse War” arc, with a script by John Wagner and Alan Grant, and illustrated by Mike McMahon, Ron Smith, Steve Dillon, Brian Bolland and Carlos Ezquerra. Additionally, famed comic artist Jim Fern will be creating new covers for each issue.
“Much like we did with our Doctor Who Classics series, I’m happy to expose fans new and old to these wonderful stories from years past, and even moreso to have Charlie Kirchoff again bringing new hues to such amazing artwork,” said Chris Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Officer.
“It’s very exciting to see these classic Dredd stories given an extra dimension,” said 2000 AD Editor in Chief Matt Smith. “New readers will get to see some of the seminal tales that established Dredd as the UK’s most important comics character, and old-school fans of the future lawman can re-experience their favorite series in a whole new light.”
