Like Batman and Captain America before him, comic book hero Judge Dredd is to be killed in a forthcoming story from the Megazine. Bleeding Cool has reported that a story titled 'The Death Of Dredd' will appear in issue #309 of the anthology, sparking rumours that the law enforcer will perish. Mind you being dead didn't finish off Batman or Captain America so it seems a safe bet Dredd will return from the grave.
Publisher Rebellion Developments has released teaser artwork for the story, depicting Dredd with blood streaming down his face. It will feature illustations by Ian Sharp, who announced his return to the character late last year.
Judge Dredd was created by writer John Wagner and artist Carlos Ezquerra in 1977. As well as going on to become a British comics icon, the character appeared in a Hollywood film and various other media.
