Are Grindstone Cowboys, Lion's Den, Reclamation, and Deep in The Heart already part of some kind of Tour Of Duty-style epic in instalments?[/size]
Yes - it's called Every Empire Falls.
I suppose what I should have asked was whether Deep In The Heart
is a coda to an epic that's called Every Empire Falls
, or whether Every Empire Falls
is book one of a larger epic with a different name - in the same way book one of Tour Of Duty
is called The Backlash
stuff, I know.
Nobody's had a guess at the identity of the perp Dredd's after. Not the bisonosaur herder, the 'someone bigger' only hinted at, so far. Maybe's dead, Mean Angel's either nice or buried (depending on which story you consider his last)
, his family exist in an indeterminate fictional state, Sabbat's only a head ...
Carroll specific characters: Gideon Dallas' head 'sploded; Pax was 'grud knows where, on some mission nobody knows anything about'; Paris (and Dredd baby?)
was in custody; Sector Zero was reincorporated; it looked like Oswin was nuked, but no body = no death.
I suppose a crispy, glow in the dark
Oswin would make most sense, if this is a continuation of Every Empire Falls
, rather than an epilogue.* Prepare yourself for this, because - trust me - I am about to FASCINATE you. The stories collected together under the title Tour Of Duty all ran weeks apart, over the course of three years (1536-1693), with other (unrelated) stories separating them. The title, Tour Of Duty, doesn't appear until 1649, on the story sequence whose actual title is Tour Of Duty. The subsequent story, Snake (1659), is the first story to feature the Tour Of Duty banner. The name The Backlash doesn't crop up until the story titled The Backlash (1628) and Megacity Justice is the title of the seven part story that rounds out the whole sequence (1687-1693)
