New Dredd member here
« on: 15 February, 2017, 02:20:00 am »
Hello, I am a recent reader of the comics, funny story. A friend on Facebook was constantly posting about it and I was wondering what his hype was all about. Then one day I looked the 1995 Stallone ver. in the que, watched it. Then I went and looked up Dredd with Urban in it...thought it was a great movie.

Then I decided to read up on it's lore on it, so I ordered the Case filed #5 on Amazon, so I'm starting there.  Then I saw the 2000AD app I could download and install, not sure if I want to start pulling THAT thread just yet.

But yeah, I can now see the appeal of the franchise as it's got an entire universe going on and a prospective cinematic universe to be competitive with other franchised CUs.  :-)

Welcome aboard- feel free to ask questions- many of the boarders here are 'very' well versed in the history of Dredd and the other strips in 2000 AD.

As well as the case files- you should jump on into the regular issues and see why this is the greatest comic in the multiverse.

Welcome to the forum and I'll echo Bolt-once you start reading 2000AD you'll be hooked!

Enjoy the ride!  :)

Welcome aboard! I am going to plug Nikolai Dante as a must read strip outside of the Dredd world but there are of course many many other brilliant strips to choose from.

Welcome to Dredd (possibly 2000AD) and the forum!
