In December 1975, Kelvin Gosnell, a sub-editor at IPC Magazines, read an article in the London Evening Standard about a wave of forthcoming science fiction films, and suggested that the company might get on the bandwagon by launching a science fiction comic. Wagner kept Dredd, while Grant continued Strontium Dog and Judge Anderson. Other developments include a revamping of the Judge Dredd Megazine which has included a section acting as a showcase for British small press comics. Ro-Busters gave O'Neill the chance to spread his artistic wings and led to the popular spin-off ABC Warriors. After 16 issues, Mills quit as editor and handed the reins to Kelvin Gosnell, whose idea the comic had been in the first place. One of the core members of the ABC Warriors, Mongrol may have the body of the monster, but he has the heart and soul of a warrior.

McMahon drew the bulk of the stories, with occasional episodes drawn by Brian Bolland. 2000AD characters are characters who appear in the British comic book 2000 AD. Original artist Carlos Ezquerra did not agree with the decision to kill the character off, and refused to draw it. A dying Psi Division Judge had predicted disaster for Mega-City One unless it was ruled by a boy with a birthmark shaped like an eagle, so Dredd set off into the Cursed Earth, to Texas City, and into deep space in search of the boy, Owen Krysler, and his kidnappers, the Angel Gang. This followed the success of Judge Dredd: The Mega Collection, which had started in 2015 and later been extended to 90 volumes.
