'Scalped' artist Guera to take on Dredd

One of the biggest names in comics is to make his debut on Judge Dredd next week. The artist on the critically-acclaimed Scalped crime series for Vertigo, RM Guera, comes to the Judge Dredd Megazine with a one-shot Judge Dredd story written by Rob Williams (Cla$, Daken).

The Man Comes Around sees Guera bring his trademark gritty European style to Mega-City One as Judge Dredd investigates a series of “explosive” suicides. Williams also uses the eleven page strip to examine the effect that age is having on the lawman, who is now officially in his 70s.

Guera is just the latest major name from US comics to draw Judge Dredd for 2000 AD and its sister title, following BPRD artists Guy Davies and James Harren.

Writer Rob Williams said: “Guera’s work on Scalped was just masterful. I was delighted when he agreed to draw The Man Comes Around. His sensibility added to Judge Dredd is a perfect match. It’s a biblical western amidst the crazy of Mega-City One.”

Judge Dredd Megazine #344 is available from Wednesday 15 January. See below for a preview of the strip.
