The Cursed Earth to be reprinted!

The ban has finally been lifted! The Cursed Earth will return! Written by Pat Mills, John Wagner and Jack Adrian with art by Mike McMahon, Brian Bolland, The Cursed Earth is regarded as the first Judge Dredd epic both for its story telling and its world building. The storyline ran from 2000 AD #61 to 85 (May to October 1978).

The Cursed Earth was also notable for a lawsuit involving the publishers of 2000 AD, McDonalds, Burger King, and the Jolly Green Giant. Four episodes in the series, written by John Wagner and Jack Adrian, featured copyrighted characters used without permission. One storyline depicted wars between rival gangs, headed by the Burger King and Ronald McDonald – including scenes of Ronald executing a gang member who spilled a milkshake. Unsurprisingly, the owners of these characters objected to the use of their trademarks and sued. Publishers IPC settled out of court, publishing a half-page retraction and agreeing never to reprint the offending episodes… until now!
