I kept info on the various formats when I was figuring out storage options a while back:
|1 to 109||240 x 280mm / 9.5 x 11in|
|110 to 127||215 x 280mm / 8.5 x 11in|
|128 to 519||240 x 280mm / 9.5 x 11in|
|520 to 1032||230 x 300mm / 9 x 11.75in|
|1033 to 1199||210 x 300mm / 8.25 x 11.75in|
|1200 to 1370||195 x 300mm / 7.75 x 11.75in|
|1371 to present||210 x 280mm / 8.25 x 11in|
The sizes of the newsprint progs (pre 520) probably vary a little bit, as the folding and cutting of each prog was sometimes a bit erratic...
Hey, this is great! I would give you a "LIKE" if that were possible. There really should be a button for that here somewhere.
I don't own any of the originals, but this particular topic is one that I'd been wondering about in relation to the size of various reprint collections. I knew the older 2000 AD progs were bigger, and in particular relatively wider. It's an issue of concern to me because as most of you are probably aware, Rebellion's trade paperback collections are standardized as far as the height and width, and this is generally not much of an issue when reprinting material from progs 1371 to present, but the older stories look a little cramped when printed at the standard TPB size.
So you see, I really would like to have most of the stories from the earlier progs (pre-1033, but most especially pre-520) reprinted in a larger size. I have the IDW Dredd hardcover collections, and the Rebellion A.B.C. Warriors/Ro-Busters hardcover collections which are the same size. I wish more early material was reprinted in this format.
I don't have access (in the U.S.) to purchase these at the moment, but I was wondering if anyone could tell me what are the dimensions of the Judge Dredd Mega Collection (these are hardcovers, right?)
Oh, and one last thing I just thought of -- can someone add the sizes of Starlord, Dice Man, Judge Dredd Megazine (I know this one varied over time as well), and any other original 2000 AD spinoff titles they know of?
