For the first time in 37 years, several Judge Dredd serials that were "banned" according to 2000AD will be reprinted.

July's Judge Dredd: Cursed Earth Uncensored will have two chapters that were restricted after its initial debut due to harsh laws against parodies in the United Kingdom. The chapters, "Burger Wars" and "Soul Food," lampooned the mascots of McDonalds, Burger King, Michelin Tires and more.

“The most common question we have been asked at conventions over the years is ‘Will you be reprinting Burger Wars?’ It’s a delight, and frankly a relief, to be able to finally say ‘Yes!’" said Ben Smith, Rebellion Publishing's head of books and comic books. "Our mission to make the entire run of Judge Dredd available has seen each volume become a bestseller throughout the last decade. In this special edition of The Cursed Earth you’ll see pages from the legendary artists Brian Bolland and Mike McMahon, unseen for 37 years, in unparalleled quality.”

Judge Dredd: Cursed Earth Uncensored is scheduled to debut July 2016.
