Though the future of Dredd on the big screen is unclear, that's not to say new-found fans of the character need despair. According to THR, 2000AD will next month release a new comic entitled Dredd: Underbelly that will serve as a direct sequel to 's 2012 big screen turn as Dredd.

What's remarkable about this release is that it will be the first time 2000AD, a UK anthology series, will release a US-format comic. Underbelly will collect this direct sequel by Arthur Wyatt & Henry Flint originally published in the British Judge Dredd Megazine.

I couldn't be happier to hear this. I am definitely one of the folks who found resurgent interest in the Dredd character after the Karl Urban film. I've found myself going back to the original comics and really enjoyed them. I can't wait to see what this more contemporary comic will look like and given my own impatience with Lionsgate for not moving on a Dredd sequel, Underbelly should do well to help me bide my time.

What do you guys think?
