The popular British comic-book character, Judge Dredd is due to be published in Brazil for the first time.
Renamed Judge Juiz, he will star in a six-issue, weekly Portuguese-language series in Juiz Dredd Magazine. The new series will reprint strips from 2000 AD and Judge Dredd Megazine and will include the characters Judge Dredd, Nikolai Dante, Sláine and Grey Area.
Matt Smith, editor of 2000 AD, commented:
“The editorial droids at Mythos Editora have chosen a very well-balanced selection of strips, mixing classic material with newer stories, and it’ll make for a highly enjoyable package. I’m delighted to see the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic reaching the newsstands of Brazil!”
The first issue of Juiz Dredd Megazine will be on sale in Brazil next week!
