If you’re a Marvel reader, you’ve probably taken note of the name Rob Williams as of late, as he’s responsible for an increasingly growing chunk of the publisher’s output. H’s writing the currently unfolding miniseries Skaar: King of the Savage Land, imminently taking over the ongoing Daken: Dark Wolverine series, launching a new Ghost Rider ongoing this summer, anchoring miniseries The Iron Age, and, as announced earlier this week, helming three issues of Fear Itself: Uncanny X-Force, starting in July (Whew.)
But like many British comic book writers, Williams has a rich background working with Rebellion properties like long-running anthology 2000 AD. And he’s returning to those roots in Judge Dredd Megazine #311, with a story cheekily titled “The Walking Dredd.” As you may guess, the plot involves Judge Dredd being bitten by a zombie. The comic’s illustrated by Brendan McCarthy, who also has Marvel experience — specifically, last year’s trippy three-issue miniseries Spider-Man: Fever.
Judge Dredd Megazine #311 is out in the UK May 25, and stateside a month later. More images, courtesy Rebellion, are after the jump.
