Mega-City Undercover 3

Illustrated by D'Israeli and Ben Willsher
Published by 2000 AD
Distributed by Simon & Schuster

Justice Department has many divisions within it - Tek, Psi-Div, PSU - and for undercover operations there is Wally Squad. So called because Judges have to adopt the bizarre fashions of the citizens to blend in, it's a dangerous job living on the streets - and for Judges like Dirty Frank, operating in the Big Meg's most rundown area, insanity is a way of life. Lenny Zero was a Wally Squad Judge, an undercover operative working the streets of the future metropolis. But when he ripped off the Mob, he quit Justice Department with no shortage of enemies out for his head!

Rob Williams is the writer of Suicide Squad and Martian Manhunter for DC Comics, Unfollow for Vertigo and Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor for Titan Comics. His previous work for 2000 AD includes Judge Dredd: Titan, The Grievous Journey Of Ichabod Azrael (And The Dead Left In His Wake) and The Ten-Seconders, and he is currently writing Roy of the Rovers for Rebellion.

Under the pen name D’Israeli, Matt Brooker has been a comic artist since 1988. He is perhaps best known for his collaborations with writer Ian Edginton, including Leviathan, Kingdom of the Wicked, The War of the Worlds, Scarlet Traces, Leviathan and Batman. Other career highlights include work on Sandman, collaborations with Warren Ellis, including Lazarus Churchyard and the cryptic SVK, and his colouring on the later Miracleman stories, to which he’ll be returning in 2015. Since 2003, he’s been a regular contributor to 2000 AD, mostly as series artist on Stickleback with Ian Edginton and Low Life with Rob Williams. His and Rob’s creator owned series, Ordinary, was published in the Megazine and is now available as a graphic novel. He lives in Nottingham, UK and wishes he had a cat.

Ben Willsher got his break in comics in the ground-breaking Deadline magazine (home of Tank Girl), before being stolen by the world of computer games, where he has worked as an Art Director for many years. However, the lure of Comics was too strong and he came back to 2000 AD and has drawn Future Shocks, Pulp Sci-Fi, Tharg’s Terror Tales, Sinister Dexter, Damnation Station, but he is probably best known for his work on Judge Dredd. As well as reviving the uber cool grifter Lenny Zero, with original creator Andy Diggle, Willsher has just concluded a movie Dreddverse strip titled Dust. Beyond his accomplishments in the world of comics he has also worked in film, television and the music industry, and is heavily involved in the World of Doctor Who, where he has illustrated work for the Time Lord luminaries such as Russell T Davies, Mark Gatiss, and comic giant Neil Gaiman.
