The best-selling Essential Judge Dredd collection expands with a new line dedicated to iconic science fiction heroine, Judge Anderson!

Judge Cassandra Anderson of Psi Division is one of the greatest minds on the Judges' roster. As a precognitive telepath and empath, her quirks, such as her sense of humour, are tolerated by the otherwise oppressively strict Justice Department. However, Anderson's sense of justice and morality soon calls her to question the Law of the Judges in these landmark adventures, written by Alan Grant and featuring jaw-dropping art by Arthur Ranson and Mick Austin. As Anderson battles to save Mega-City, psychic twins, and her friend Judge Corey from psychic attacks and their inner demons, her faith in the systems around her begins to crumble. And when the world is teetering on the brink of an apocalyptic collapse, it will take everything Anderson has to save the world at the ancient temple Shamballa.

Grant’s run on Anderson, Psi Divison showcased a new depth for both 2000 AD and Anderson, as his stories took in the gamut of human emotion and spirituality. 'Shamballa'is to many, the quintessential Judge Anderson story, and it serves as the perfect opening volume of Rebellion’s new Essential Judge Andersonline.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for the Essential Judge Dredd series:"If you’re a fan that hasn’t seen this stuff before, you’re in for a rare treat." - Grovel"With 40+ years of Dredd tales to choose from, the new Essential Judge Dredd has opened with an impressive one-two punch." - Comicon

"Shamballa... cements itself a place amongst the best Dreddworld books in Rebellion’s line." - Revert to Saved"The story neatly combines action beats with tragedy and the start of Cass’ gradual disillusionment with her work. It’s a pivotal story and one that would only be built on as the year’s went past." - Games Radar"A strength all Grant’s scripts do share is Cassandra Anderson... While Dredd’s cold-hearted law-keeping is great for satirical purposes, Anderson is a complex, emotional protagonist who questions herself and her place as a judge. Shamballa in particular exploits that well, with the recent suicide of a colleague laying heavy on her throughout her journey." - Starburst Magazine"What makes the collection so memorable is Ranson's art. There's page after page of detailed splendour, real craft, technique and elegance present in the rendering and seemingly nowhere that Ranson doesn't show a willingness to supply infinite detail to sell the illusion of reality. He goes well above and beyond what most artists would provide, and you could frame almost any page.' - Slings and Arrows4/5 Stars - Den of Geek
