Press Release:

In association with the good folks at 2000AD, we’ll be hosting a signing for the release of Judge Dredd: The Cursed Earth Uncensored with artists Brian Bolland and Mike McMahon! The signing will be from 1-2pm on Saturday, July 16th.

When first serialised back in 1978, the Judge Dredd epic ‘The Cursed Earth’ originally included the now-infamous episodes ‘Burger Wars’ and ‘Soul Food’. These two chapters featured parodies of famous corporate characters such as Ronald McDonald and the Jolly Green Giant, and were quickly buried thanks to a litigious backlash, the settlement including an agreement that they would never be reprinted.

However, thanks to some landmark changes in UK laws in 2014 regarding copyright and parody, The Cursed Earth is now able to be printed in it’s entirety. For the first time ever, the entire storyline by Pat Mills, John Wagner, Brian Bolland and Mike McMahon is to be collected together in a single hardcover volume, including all of it’s beautiful full-colour spreads. At long last, it’s Judge Dredd: The Cursed Earth Uncensored!

Come along on Saturday the 16th July from 1-2pm to celebrate this long-awaited release aslegendary artists Brian Bolland and Mike McMahon will be joining us for a very special UK exclusive signing!
