Judge Dredd is getting some unfriendly visitors in the coming months, as the ranks of the Dark Judges expand by nine to thirteen total thorns in his side.
You can find all nine of the new Dark Judges slowly creeping across the comic book internet yesterday and today, and we have the exclusive reveal of one of the creepiest: Judge Stigmata. The character looks one part incubus, one part The Governor from The Walking Dead and all disturbing as he walks around with a knife through his stomach. Yeah, these guys will be providing plenty of nightmares.
Check out the design to your right, and the solicitation for Judge Dredd #17 below, and stay tuned for the reveal of more Dark Judges.
Judge Dredd #17
Duane Swierczynski (w) • Nelson Daniel (a & c)
“Cold Cold Ground”—The morgue full of 13 dead Judges were only the beginning… of the end! Dredd’s most vicious and unstoppable enemies—the Dark Judges—are clawing their way into Mega-City One, determined to transform it into a new city of the dead. That’s right: Judges Death! Mortis! Fire! Fear! (And some new friends!) But the only thing more horrifying than the Dark Judges’ onslaught are drastic measures the Justice Department is willing to take to repel them.
