Judge Dredd Hits The Beach And Battles Giant Shrimp In ‘Mega City Two’ #3 [Preview]

Judge Dredd: Mega City Two #3, IDW

Judge Dredd: Mega City Two, in which Douglas Wolk and Ulises Farinas are chronicling the stone-faced lawman's trip out west to the City of Courts that used to be Los Angeles, has already been one of the most fun comics on the stands in just the first issue. Next week's installment, however, takes it to an entirely new, entirely ridiculous level, as Dredd hits the beach for "Beach Blanket Justice" and ends up encountering a giant mutated atomic shrimp that's going to seriously damage tourism. And that's just on page two -- and it's the least of Dredd's problems with post-nuclear California.

And if that wasn't enough to get you excited? There is a pretty amazing joke about LA-based plagiarist Shia LaBeouf some guy in here. Check out a preview and watch for it below!

It’s a Biker Gang Beatdown In ‘Judge Dredd: Mega-City Two’ #2 [Preview]

IDW

If catching Dredd cringe through traffic jams trapped in a civilian-grade car and dispatching perps with hilariously-nonlethal weaponry was your cup of tea in Judge Dredd: Mega-City Two #1 last month, you'll be pleased to know the ultimate comic book character culture-shock continues this week in issue #2 by writer Douglas Wolk, artist Ulises Farinas and colorist Ryan Hill. This time around Dredd's finally gotten his hands on a proper bike, but at the cost of going deep undercover to infiltrate some surprisingly talented biker gangs in the name of solid reality television. Oh, and justice?

Judge Dredd Heads West In ‘Mega City Two’ #1 [Preview]

Judge Dredd: Mega City 2, IDW

Next week, Judge Dredd is packing up his Lawgiver and scowling his way across the Cursed Earth for a visit to Mega City Two in the appropriately titled Judge Dredd: Mega City Two. The trip comes courtesy of writer (and former ComicsAlliance contributor) Douglas Wolk, artist (and current ComicsAlliance favorite) Ulises Farinas and colorist Ryan Hill, but it's hardly a vacation. Out of his element and as grumpy as ever, the story finds Dredd in the sprawling future version of Los Angeles, where every neighborhood has its own laws.

It's pretty exciting stuff from a long-time Dredd fan, but if you can't wait for Wednesday for the series' first issue, we have some good news: Check below for a preview!

Douglas Wolk Talks His and Ulises Farinas’ ‘Judge Dredd: Mega City Two’ [Interview]

Judge Dredd: Mega City Two

To put it mildly, Judge Dredd has had a rough couple of years. His city's been put through the wringer yet again, he's questioning the justice system, and crime shows no sign of slowing down no matter how many times he shoots it with high explosives. Fortunately for him, Douglas Wolk and Ulises Farinas have stepped up to send him on a vacation this January in Judge Dredd: Mega City Two, a new miniseries from IDW where Mega City One's most famous lawman takes a trip to the West Coast to see what post-apocalyptic California has to offer.

To find out about the series, we spoke with Wolk, a long-time Dredd fan, about why he loves the series, what the inspiration was for (re)building Mega City Two, how he's rewriting the book with Farinas as he goes, and what stories new Dredd readers should check out.

Mega-City Two Comes To Life In Early Art From Wolk And Farinas’ Upcoming Judge Dredd Miniseries [Art]

Ulises Farinas Judge Dredd

Here at ComicsAlliance, we love pretty much all things Judge Dredd (with maybe one exception). We're also admirers of the work of illustrator Ulises Farinas. As such, any combination of the two is going to pique our interests, so when we found out Farinas and colorist Ryan Hill would be teaming up with writer -- and Judge Dredd historian -- Douglas Wolk on an upcoming Judge Dredd miniseries for IDW and 2000 AD, we were intrigued. And if this early piece of promotional art is any indication, readers are in for a treat.

In this installment, comics res
