Now Dredd has gathered together a team of cadet Judges to track down the source of this alien menace. Along the way they will come face-to-face with cannibals, a rip in the fabric of time, a bizarre spider-cult, a child militia and an awesome secret going back to the days of Chief Judge McGruder!

Good, I prefer the Tara cover, to the one I thought they were almost going to use.

So that not the offical cover?


another thing, the first volume was thin, because the stories it printed were from the thin era of 2000AD format.

This book will probibly be fatter, the dimetions of current 2000AD. So while it may sit next to the previous volume, it won't do so nicely.

Will buy JD: The Hunting Party, as I haven't read it before.

Will pass on the Slaine GN. Enjoyed reading it in 2000AD and liked the art, but I'm just not a big Slaine fan.

My assumption is that the final cover will have that artwork but the correct volume number, etc.

Cheers,
