Silencer 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 third Judge Dredd novel. At the time of publication (1994) Bishop was editor of the Judge Dredd Megazine.

Synopsis[edit]

Dredd is assigned to Sector 66 to investigate the murder of its sector chief. A mysterious creature with the power of invisibility is killing people throughout the sector. Meanwhile Chief Judge McGruder is going off the rails.

Continuity[edit]

Silencer was set during the events depicted in the stories Conspiracy of Silence in 2000 AD #891–894 and Prologue in the Judge Dredd Megazine (vol. 2 #57), which were both prequels to the epic-length story Wilderlands, published in both comics.
