Welcome to Mega-City One, a nightmarish metropolis situated along the east coast of post-apocalyptic North America. Poverty is rife, crime is rampant, and only the Judges – empowered to dispense instant justice – can stop total anarchy. Toughest of them all is JUDGE DREDD – he is the Law!
Spawned from genetically-altered apes created after the ‘Atomic Wars’, a sizeable population of simian citizens now inhabit many of the Mega-cities and colony worlds. Some, like Don Uggie Apelino and his ape gang have turned to crime. Harry Heston on the other hand, has drawn inspiration from the Big Meg’s most notorious lawman, JUDGE DREDD and decided to enforce the law himself!
