IDW Publishing also plans to offer new editions of classic Judge Dredd material. “Judge Dredd: The Complete Brian Bolland” will reprint the artists' work in a black-and-white edition similar to how the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” Ultimate Collections from IDW presented the original stories of Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird in an oversize hardcover.

Following that, IDW plans to reprint the best Dredd stories in color as monthly comics.

Charlie Kirchoff will color Bolland's Judge Dredd material for the monthly comics. The ongoing 32-page comic series feature new color versions of artwork by Ezquerra and other artists.

“I first experienced Judge Dredd in the form of the Eagle Comics reprints from the early '80s, so it'll be fun to pay that forward and let a new generation of readers also experience that material in monthly color comics, albeit with the benefit of 21st century coloring and printing techniques,” Ryall said in a news release.
