From the press release:

Judge Dredd: The Restricted Files 02

John Wagner ♦ Alan Grant ♦ Carlos Esquerra ♦ Steve Dillon ♦ Many More

Available June 2010 for £19.99


Experience forgotten Mega-City One epics from yesteryear as Judge Dredd tackles crimes too big to be contained in the weekly Prog! Featuring never-before trade collected stories from 2000 AD annuals and specials released in the eighties, this is retro cool at its best!

About the creators:

John Wagner has been scripting for 2000 AD for more years than he cares to remember. His creations include Judge Dredd, Strontium Dog, Ace Trucking, Al’s Baby, Button Man and Mean Machine. Outside of 2000 AD his credits include Star Wars, Lobo, The Punisher and the critically acclaimed A History of Violence.

With over 300 2000 AD stories to his name – not to mention over 250 Daily Star Judge Dredd strips – Alan Grant’s prolific creative record speaks for itself. Outside the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic, Grant is well-known to Batman fans following a lengthy run on various incarnations of the title. More recently he has adapted Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novels Kidnapped and Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde in Graphic Novel format with artist Cam Kennedy.

It is impossible to overstate the importance of Carlos Ezquerra’s contribution to 2000 AD. As co-creator of Judge Dredd, for example, Ezquerra designed the classic original costume as  well as visually conceptualising Mega-City One… and then he co-created the only character arguably more popular, Strontium Dog! Ezquerra also co-created Al’s Baby, Armageddon, Fiends of the Eastern Front and Janus: Psi Division, as well as the characters Galen DeMarco and Durham Red.

Steve Dillon is a fan-favourite 2000 AD writer and artist, and the creator of both Hap Hazzard and the Irish Judge Joyce.

His writing for the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic includes Future Shocks and Rogue Trooper, while Dillon’s pencils have graced

A.B.C. Warriors, Bad Company, Judge Dredd, Harlem Heroes, Ro-Busters, Rogue Trooper and Tyranny Rex. Dillon shot to

international superstardom as a result of his work on DC/Vertigo’s Preacher, co-created with 2000 AD’s Garth Ennis.
