Below will be a major spoiler for the new Judge Dredd Megazine. The monthly hard sci-fi comic anthology featuring the mighty law giver of Mega City One in his continuing real time adventures.
If you are intending to read the comic book, you should turn away now.
But I would also ask, inspired by Dan Slott, that if you do post the contents below elsewhere, that you try and preserve the spoiler aspects by not talking about the details or using the image unless it too can be protected in a spoilerish fashion. It is not the intent of this column to spoil any storylines for those who wish not to be spoiled, merely use a spoiler to bring attention to a comic that may otherwise be ignored. I hope you can join in with me on that.
You may want to turn away. You may not. Just know that once you see this, you can’t go back.
So on we go.
