Comrade Ed is a character from the Judge Dredd Megazine and 2000 AD series Red Razors. He appeared at first to be simply a run-of-the-mill talking horse with human-level intelligence who worked in partnership with Sov-Block Judge Razors. It was eventually revealed, however, that Ed had, in fact, originally been a human male, a resident of Texas City. Trapped in a relationship he didn't want with Katy, the controlling and deeply unattractive daughter of the city's brutal Chief Judge, Ed fled to the Sov Block in order to escape her, and applied to be a Judge. They had no vacancies for Judges, but as it turned out, they were very short of horses, so Ed turned himself over to the Psycho Surgeons. He used the last of his savings to pay them to turn him into a horse.
I guess Ed must really have hated Katy.
Katy later tracked Ed down and tried to kill him, but Razors killed her first. Ed was eventually murdered by Razors after Razors' mental conditioning wore off.
