Taken from a Rebellion Press Release:
Since Karl Urban donned the helm to star as Judge Dredd, 2012’s DREDD has gone on to achieve cult movie status – the official campaign for a sequel, endorsed and co-ordinated by 2000 AD, now has a 125,000 name petition and a 93,000-strong Facebook page. The fans have since rocketed the DVD and Blu-Ray to the top of the Amazon charts around the world and Urban himself has personally thanked them for their ongoing support.
Rebellion is very pleased to announce that DREDD: The Illustrated Script and Visuals by Jock and Alex Garland is out this week from all good book stores and comic book stores on both sides of the Atlantic.
Taking Garland’s original pre-production screenplay we have run it alongside Jock’s never-before-seen comic-style storyboards, which were not only used by director Pete Travis but also award-winning cinematographer Anthony Dod Mantle to create the visual look of the film. The stunning layout by 2000 AD designer Simon Parr, put together in close cooperation with Jock, are exclusive concept visuals, behind-the-scenes photos, and notes from the artist on his work creating the look of this cult classic.
It also features an exclusive introduction from screenwriter Alex Garland: “Part of [Jock’s] huge contribution was a full-length comic book version of the script, that we distributed to everyone from financiers to crew. His paintings and sketches were one of the quickest and most effective way of conveying the look and tone of the project. When – a very long time later – the picture was locked, I could see his input had pervaded the film at all levels.”
The limited edition numbered hardback sold out from 2000 AD’s online store within three days!

Evelyn War is a Believer. She knows that in the Old Time, long before the Time of Ice, the
Masters fought a war with Them. But in the frozen
ruins of Berlin, Them have not been seen for many
years and now the Aux fight among themselves
and say all that was just stories.
But the ice is melting and the whistling call of
Them can be heard in the tunnels of the U-Bahn
once more. She knows that the stories are not just
lessons in the ways of war. Them were real.
New York Times best-seller Dan Abnett returns
with writing partner Nik Vincent to the world of
Kingdom, the hit 2000AD comic series of the same
name he co-created (with artist Richard Elson).
Fiefdom is an original novel set one-hundred years
after the events of Kingdom, moving the action
from the isolated wastelands in the southern
hemisphere of the comic series to the frozen North
of Europe where Them are now just a folk memory
and the Aux wage war with one another in the
ruins of what was once Berlin.
Releasing for summer 2014 in mass paperback and limited edition signed and numbered
hardback (500 run, UK only) it will be a must-read, not just for fans of Abnett’s Warhammer
novels, but for lovers of post-apocalytic and future-Earth SF.
Cover by Nick Percival.
