"It's Hollywood quality for your ears." - Mega City Book Club Podcast

In Mega-City One, the Judges are the law - acting as judge, jury, and executioner. But how do the citizens really feel about a system where they are powerless?

America Jara and Bennett Beeny grow up as best friends, living a fairly trouble-free life in a dangerous city... bar the odd, negative encounter with a Judge. Time draws them apart, and when they are brought back together, Beeny is a successful singer and America has become involved with a terrorist organisation known as Total War, which has the Justice Department in its sights!

This dark and complex tale is considered to be one of the best stories to ever come out of the Judge Dredd universe.

Featuring Joseph Fiennes as Dredd, and an ensemble cast including Paterson Joseph, and Matthew Jacobs Morgan, fans of Judge Dredd and newcomers to Mega City One alike will be transported to brutal dystopian world Dredd for an immersive listening experience like no other.

"The best audio adaptions I've heard." - Mega City Book Club Podcast

"This might be the most accurate representation of Judge Dredd's world seen outside of the comics themselves." - Pop Culture Bandit

"A great listening experience for newcomers and grizzled Dredd veterans alike." - Big Comic Page

Welcome to Sector House 301, the isolated dumping ground for Mega-City One's every misfit and foul-up Judge. Nicknamed The Pit, the sector house holds many dark secrets, and the discovery of one of them may have led to the death of Sector Chief Rohan.

Sent to take over The Pit is Judge Dredd. Together with a small team of trusted Judges, he uncovers a trail of deceit and murder that leads to the very top levels of command. The only question is, will Dredd live long enough to bring the culprits to Justice?

Featuring Joseph Fiennes as Dredd, and an ensemble cast including Paterson Joseph, and Patricia Rodriguez, fans of Judge Dredd and newcomers to Mega City One alike will be transported to brutal dystopian world Dredd for an immersive listening experience like no other.

"This audio adaptation is a strong showcase for one of the lawman's most underrated storylines. Fans of both the character and audio drama should enjoy its intricate plotting, high production values and sharp writing." - Starburst Magazine

"Suitably gritty and grounded story of police corruption that will, perhaps more than any of the other 2000 AD releases, appeal to those with absolutely no prior knowledge of either Judge Dredd or the Galaxy's Greatest Comic." - Big Comic Page

"Once again, the makers excelled themselves" - Life of Die

Late 21st century and Earth has been reduced to an uninhabited wasteland. What was left of humanity was evacuated into overpopulated space stations, or 'Habitats'. A hotbed for crime and strange new religious sects, the Habitat Security Division has no shortage of work.

No-nonsense Investigator Bridget Kurtis soon finds herself embroiled in a life or death struggle with a sinister cult, and what she uncovers has disturbing implications for the future of the human race...

Featuring Nina Sosanya, Richard Armitage, David Warner, Indira Varma, Pippa Bennett-Warner alongside a full cast, fans and newcomers alike will be transported to the gritty audio world of 'Bridge' and her colleagues for an immersive listening experience like no other.

"Nina Sosanya's Bridget Kurtis is the unquestioned standout. Her no-nonsense, dryly comic delivery really helps to bring Dan Abnett's script to the audiobook format." - Big Comic Page

"The production and flow of the story is brilliantly done and this is easily one of the best adaptations of the story we've ever seen." - Starburst Magazine

A galaxy-spanning story and comics' first bona fide feminist space opera, The Ballad of Halo Jones is the first true epic to grace the bibliography of arguably the greatest comic book writer the world has ever known.

Bored and frustrated with her life in 50th-century leisure-ghetto housing estate 'The Hoop', 18-year-old everywoman Halo Jones yearns for the infinite sights and sounds of the universe. Pledging to escape on a fantastic voyage, she sets in motion events unimaginable; a spell on a luxury space-liner, a brush with an interstellar war - Halo Jones faces hardship and adventure in the name of freedom in the limitless cosmos.

Featuring Sheila Atim as Halo Jones, alongside Ellie Kendrick, Kemah Bob, Michael Fenton Stevens and Yaz Zadeh, with an exciting accomplished cast, existing fans of Halo and newcomers alike will be transported to The Hoop and beyond in an immersive listening experience like no other.

"The result is simply stunning." - Starburst Magazine

For too long the people of Tír na nÓg have suffered under the dominion of the drunes; strange druids who have poisoned the land with their magic. Sláine has had enough of their tyranny and, through the Earth Goddess, he learns some shocking truths about the priesthood and his own future.

Now Sláine must unite the four kings of Tír na nÓg and use their mystical weapons as he and the Sessair tribe prepare for all-out war!

Featuring Colin Morgan, Gerry O'Brien, Ayoola Smart, Gemma Whelan, Stephen Hogan and a full cast, fans of Sláine and newcomers to the famed barbarian's world will be transported to a world of Celtic mythology and fantasy for an immersive listening experience like no other.
