Y'see, I thought that once I cleared up that it had nothing to do with Dredd that people would get it quite quickly.  Of course, I already knew what the answer was :-)

ROBO-HUNTER THE DROID FILES: VOLUME 2

Quote from: blurb
THE RETURN OF THE DROID DETECTIVE!

In Brit-Cit business is good for Sam Slade. From investigating foul play commited against England’s World Cup robo-players, to working for Prime Minister Iron Aggie, the Robo-Hunter is making good bank. But will a little thing like his own death bring an end to such a sucessful robo-hunting career?



Quote from: translation
See Dred Detective!

It is advisable to bury the slide in the UK market.  Because of the advantages and disadvantages of Luder is the player in the presence of the disease, Iron Age missiles are said to be criminalized for operating under the presidency of the Iron Age. That's fine. But his death is so small, will he be caught?

Probably a bit of an easier one - certainly less misleading!

I’m lost for a great, great event!

He returned to power 10 years after the death penalty was abolished by the British Parliament and feels like he did not commit suicide 90 years later. Of course, when he died, he was moved to an unfamiliar place inhabited by soldiers Nick and a mysterious beast: the world of tourism! Eddie wrote an exemplary novel by two very amazing couples and Bright Master Shanti Lanson (Judge Button), which is part of a very complex world.

As for the new one I think Corinthian is right but just to throw in an alternative - Meltdown Man (though have we had that already?).

It's definitely Mazeworld. Everyone knows that Bright Master Shanti Lanson (Judge Button) is Arthur Ranson's pen name.

No matter how many times I looked at this I couldn't see anything other than "doctored" which combined with the "luder" part for the Killing Game but it clearly wasn't Button Man so ..... AAARRGH.
We never really die.

We did - in fact you're the one who correctly guessed MM!

Speaking of correct guesses - The Corinthian was spot on.  Here's the comparison:

Quote from: original
Lose Yourself In A Tale Of Epic Fantasy!

30 years after the British parliament suspended the death penalty, the gallows have returned and Adam Cadman finds himself being the first person to be hanged since 1964. But as his life drains away, Adam is transported to a strange, new dimension, populated by warriors and mystical beasts: the bizarre Mazeworld! Written by 2000 AD legend Alan Grant (Judge Dredd, Batman) and featuring the breath-taking artwork of Arthur Ranson (Button Man, Judge Anderson) this must-have graphic novel contains the complete Mazeworld saga.

Some of those translations are pretty easy, but they just have to be left in for the sake of amusement.  I wonder if Judge Button knew Judge Pin?
