Judge Dredd: Year One

Judge Dredd: Year One

Three celebrated Judge Dredd writers take you back to Dredd's first year on the streets of Mega-City One as a full-eagle Judge. Bred to dispense Justice, the young Dredd is not the wizened veteran we know, but a Judge with built-in determination and little experience. In City Fathers, the brutal murder of a Justice Department-sanctioned spy uncovers something new and dangerous in the sector's murky black market. Unless Dredd can stop it, chaos will be unleashed. In Cold Light of Day, a savage killing spree results in the deaths of two highly-regarded Judges, and many consider Dredd to be responsible: a decision he made five years earlier - while he was still a cadet - has come back to haunt him.

Communication Failure
Zieja, Joseph

"A threat of a neighboring human-inhabited system forces Captain Rogers to declare war, and the math-happy Thelicosan fleet offers an ultimatum: surrender Rogers, or everyone dies. Captain Rogers has suddenly become the Admiral of the 331st Meridan fleet, but spies aboard his ship are giving information to the rival Thelicosan command. They believe that they have finally found someone to fulfill the Thelicosan's destiny--and are willing to break a two hundred year peace agreement for it. Now, the 331st must stop the invasion of a strong and determined enemy, while re-learning how to use half the equipment they have, since almost no one has fired a weapon in those two hundred years. War can be hell, especially when no one knows what is going on"--Provided by publisher.
