IDW'S Judge Dredd news

IDW Publishing have announced the artists for their new Judge Dredd title which will hit stands later this year - Penciller Zach Howard will team up with colourist Nelson Daniel for the new ongoing series of adventures based on the character from UK comic, 2000AD, with a writer yet to be revealed.

The title will feature original stories alongside classic reprints from 2000 AD.

And in related news - Geoff Barrow is set to release a new album based on 2000 AD's Judge Dredd comic.

Barrow has teamed up with composer Ben Salisbury to record the album inspired by Mega-City One, 'Judge Dredd's' sprawling, futuristic home town, which serves as the backdrop for the graphic novel series.

The album's title, 'Drokk', is taken from the comic and is an all-purpose swear word used by the citizens of Mega-City One. Written and recorded over a six-month period, the album, due out on May 8, is said not to be a "definitive sound of the vast city, but rather as the duo’s personal, outsider’s interpretation".
