The Psi Files: Anderson is Back

Hmm you might think this is about the X-Files and Gillian Anderson but wrong guess. From the pages of 2000AD our favourite mind reading Judge is Back. Judge Anderson: The Psi Files 02 arrives in February.

Recently I have found myself heading back to the pages of 2000AD to review some of their older stuff and am having a blast doing so. I always enjoyed the character of Anderson so am looking forward to this.


Judge Anderson: The Psi Files 02

Psychic judge returns for new collection including never reprinted stories

She’s the foremost female character in British comics and now Judge Cassandra Anderson returns with a brand new collection – including stories that have never been reprinted before!

Judge Anderson: The Psi Files 02 is a new collection of short stories from 2000 AD and the Judge Dredd Megazine, following the cases and travels of the psychic crimefighter from the pages of Judge Dredd.

The follow-up to the best seller Judge Anderson: The Psi Files 01 begins with the stunning Shamballa – with gorgeous artwork by Arthur Ranson – in which Anderson must travel to the roof of the world to try and stop the psychic apocalypse.

She then must deal with mutant vampires in old New York and investigate unimaginably ancient ruins on the face of Mars, before exploring the outer fringes of the galaxy in a search for meaning. But wherever she goes, Cassandra Anderson is sure to find trouble.

Written by Alan Grant (Batman, Strontium Dog) and with art from Kev Walker (L.E.G.I.O.N., Marvel Zombies), Arthur Ranson (Button Man, Mazeworld), Ian Gibson (Halo Jones, Judge Dredd) and David Roach (Batman, Star Wars), this is a rich and involving collection of tales that not only thrill, but explore ideas of love, grief and loss that are all too often ignored in action comics.

About the creative team

With over 300 2000 AD stories to his name – not to mention over 250 Daily Star Judge Dredd strips – Alan Grant’s prolific creative record speaks for itself. Grant is well-known to Batman fans following a lengthy run on various incarnations of the title.

Kev Walker is the co-creator of Badlands and has provided artwork for Dan Dare, Judge Dredd, Harlem Heroes, Mercy Heights, and Rogue Trooper, as well as L.E.G.I.O.N. for DC and Marvel Comics’ The Eternal.

Arthur Ranson has long been one of 2000 AD’s most popular artists; having made his initial impact working on Judge Anderson, he teamed up with John Wagner to create the highly acclaimed Button Man series, and later with Alan Grant for Mazeworld.

  1. This is a very excellent series to promote and 2000AD in general just does not get the fair due amount of recognition in the UK that it deserves for at the very least being uniquely bold and oringinal and bucking trends most of the time. A great British institution indeed.
    Where else can we get regular fresh great quality genre serious and mature comic entertainment (okay there is now CLiNT, but that is a very diffent thing really). Long live 2000AD
