IDW Publishing announced this week that popular Judge Dredd character, Judge Cassandra Anderson will be starring in her very own spin-off series this August entitled Judge Dredd: Anderson, Psi-Division. The series will feature the creative team of writer Matt Smith and artist Carl Critchlow of 2000 AD and will follow events prior to the current ongoing Judge Dredd series where telepathic and precognitive Judge Anderson works cases with the Psi Divison while trying to prevent the haunting events she foresees.
In the official press release of the announcement, series editor Denton J. Tipton said, “Following up his exploration of Judge Dredd’s early career in Year One, Matt Smith turns his keen eyes toward defining Judge Anderson for a new generation of readers. From the halls of the Justice Department, to the galleries of the Megapolitan Museum and swamplands outside of Texas City, Anderson will face a trial by fire, forging her into the authoritative Judge we know today.”
Judge Anderson, Psi-Division is set to hit stand some time in August.
