Turn that frown upside down with this bad-ass cover for Dredd comic prequel

While Pete Travis' DREDD 3D will be blasting into theaters come September, Lionsgate prepared a special treat for those who can't wait until the Judge returns to the big screen - a digital comic prequel will be released this August, written by 2000AD editor Matt Smith. The awesome cover for the prequel comic, created by Greg Staples, has just been unveiled and you can check it out below.

During a routine day on the job, Dredd is assigned to train and evaluate Cassandra Anderson (Olivia Thirlby), a rookie with powerful psychic abilities thanks to a genetic mutation. A heinous crime calls them to a neighborhood where fellow Judges rarely dare to venture- a 200 story vertical slum controlled by prostitute turned drug lord Ma-Ma (Lena Headey) and her ruthless clan. When they capture one of the clan's inner circle, Ma-Ma overtakes the compound's control center and wages a dirty, vicious war against the Judges that proves she will stop at nothing to protect her empire. With the body count climbing and no way out, Dredd and Anderson must confront the odds and engage in the relentless battle for their survival.

DREDD, the movie, will follow the comic on September 21st.
