When a lone rider arrives at the wall protecting the city from The Cursed Earth, he brings more than ill-tidings. The meta-normal cowboy killer Ichabod Azrael is on a mission – and it's by now means certain that he, Judge Dredd, Judge Anderson, or even the world will survive!

Also in this collection, the 'defund the police' movement comes to Mega-City One as, in the aftermath of End of Days, Portland-based writer Arthur Wyatt (Samizdat Squad) joins Williams in bringing the world of Dredd bang up-to-date. The story, also originally serialized weekly in 2000AD, is the contrast to the End of Days story arc where the series gets gleefully, overtly political and topical, and does not end up where you think it would.

This latest collection crowns a superlative run on the future's greatest lawman by Williams, whose stories Judge Dredd: Titan and Judge Dredd: The Small House joined his work with fellow writers Simon Spurrier (Hellblazer) and Al Ewing (Immortal Hulk) on Judge Dredd: Trifecta as modern classics.
