Cursed Earth Asylum is an original novel written by David Bishop and based on the long-running British science fiction comic strip Judge Dredd. It is Bishop's second Judge Dredd novel. At the time of publication (1994) Bishop was editor of the Judge Dredd Megazine.

Synopsis[edit]

A dangerous psychic called Soon is being held prisoner in a lunatic asylum in the Cursed Earth on account of his staggeringly vast powers. When Soon escapes and threatens Mega-City One, Judge Dredd and a party of cadets are sent to stop him, only for Dredd to be framed for murdering the cadets.

Continuity[edit]

The book features the return of another psychic called Hope, who first appeared in 1991 in the Judge Anderson story Engram (in 2000 AD # 712–717 and 758–763).
