Short Story Saturday: One-Way Ticket

I stumbled across a review today, of a story that first came out a year and a half ago. It's for Part 1 of One-Way Ticket. It comes with a picture attached, the relevance of which you'll see as you read on.

That imposing figure above is the only artwork for this story, as it’s a two-page prose piece. But just because it doesn’t have pictures doesn’t mean it’s any less of a slice of Dredd and The Meg as what you’ll find in 2000 AD or the Megazine. And like most of the good stories, Dredd is more of a support character, leaving the focus on Judge Thomas Arnold. It seems Judge Arnold has taken as much of the punishment Mega-City One dishes out as he can take. So what’s his other option? A one-way ticket out, of course! Simple, right? When has that ever been the case…
