Indexer Notes

The Cursed Earth part 11 of 25.

This is one of very few vintage Judge Dredd stories not to have been reprinted for a long time, with the owners of the trademarked characters used not happy and only agreeing not to take any further action after an agreement that the stories would never see print again. Legal letters were also sent to webpages presenting the story online.

In October 2015 it was announced that due to changes in UK law concerning parody that these chapters would be reprinted.
