Published by Rebellion in August 2015 (ISBN 978-1-78108-332-1, 11.2 x 8.3 inches or 28.5 x 21.5 cm, 336 pages, £40) this hardcover edition was limited to 250 copies and could/can only been purchased through 2000 AD online web shop. It was advertised as featuring "a numbered bookplate, signed by Carlos Ezquerra, and a specially commissioned Judge Dredd art print by Ezquerra (numbered only) in the style Dredd circa 1977.", but to better described it, it features a numbered Carlos Ezquerra bookplate/art print (mine is #90) and an additional numbered and signed sticker featuring the same illustration on the second of cover (that is not what I would call a bookplate myself but English is not my mother tongue). Note that in fact, the sticker has been put on the regular edition of this book as they share the same ISBN.

This anniversary edition features the exact same content story wise than the original one (i.e. Judge Dredd material published in 2000 AD #2-60), but in oversized HC form and printed on glossy paper instead of a mat yellowing quality paper. In addition, this new edition features original coloured pages and spreads in colour which was not the case in the 2005 edition.

The extra section is also similar to the original edition content wise (Pat Mills' The First Dredd original unpublished strip illustrated by Carlos Ezquerra, Walter The Wobot strips and prog covers), but again in this new edition original coloured material is printed in colour.

Notice that the 2005 edition only featured 3 covers from 2000 AD #10, 44 and 59. In this new edition there are two additional covers from 2000 AD #5 and 18. The book ends with authors and artists short bios.
