Matt Smith and Carl Critchlow will be the creative team for a Judge Anderson miniseries at IDW, the company announced this weekend at Wonder Con. One of the key characters in the Judge Dredd franchise, the news follows the recent conclusion of Smith’s ‘Year One’ arc for the company.
The current editor of 2000AD, Smith is certainly in a strong position to write the miniseries, which will pick up twenty-four years after Year One concludes. In the story, Anderson will be a fresh recruit to the Psi Division of MegaCity One. After tracking a psychic flash to a museum, she finds a crew have stolen a map from the exhibit. In order to find out what they wanted the map for – and where it leads – she goes on the hunt to find them.
Judge Anderson: Psi Division will start in August.
