Mega-City One, 2080. It is Joe Dredd's first year as a full-eagle Judge.

Though he was created from the genes of Eustace Fargo, the 'Father of Justice', Dredd is not long graduated from the Academy, and has yet to establish himself as the metropolis’s toughest, greatest Judge. His reputation will be moulded in the years ahead, but right now he’s a young lawman, fresh on the streets.

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.

With the Justice Department overwhelmed and the city at a standstill thanks to a chaotic and brutal cross-city motorbike race, Dredd must bring the killer to justice and clear his name...

As the Judges cart Rico Dredd away for questioning and exile on Titan, his clone-brother Joe comes under scrutiny. They’re cut from the same cloth; can Joe Dredd be trusted?

An investigation begins, and Dredd is shipped off to an iridium-mining town in the Cursed Earth, which has come under pressure from mutant raiders.
But everything is not as it seems. When the reason for the raids becomes clear, Dredd will have some tough decisions to make.

Judge Joe Dredd’s first year on the streets as a full-eagle judge. Bred for justice and trained in the law; Dredd’s no helpless rookie. But he’s not the seasoned veteran we know either…

Three iconic Dredd writers – Carroll, Ewing and Smith – are brought together for the first time in Judge Dredd: Year One, the first print omnibus collection in the new series from Abaddon Books.

City Fathers by Matt Smith
The Brutal murder of a Justice Department-sanctioned spy uncovers something new and dangerous in the sectors’ murky black market. Unless Dredd can stop it, chaos will be unleashed.

“Matt Smith has a fantastic handle on the chaos that is Mega City One.” – on Judge Dredd: Year One #2 from IDW

Cold Light of Day by Michael Carroll
A savage killing spree results in the death 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.

“Both Carroll and Smith totally capture the character before he became the legend, and both authors deftly capture the internal monologue of the very stoic
Dredd.” on Cold Light of Day and City Fathers

Wear Iron by Al Ewing (previously unpublished)
“Wear iron, that’s the rule.” Paul Strader is a stick-up man, and a stoned cold professional. But when he gets in over his head, he has to risk everything on the word of a corrupt lawman, and break every rule he has. Every rule but one.

“This is cold, abrupt, driven Dredd… This is Ewing channelling the very best of John Wagner.”
