General / Re: Anyone prefer Finn over Slaine?

Yes. But then I've never actually read any Slaine so that probably explains that.

I do generally prefer Mills and Skinner to any of the roughly contemporaneous solo Mills stuff, tho.

Reading the parts of Finn that made it into Meg floppies I did think that it was a comic that I'd probably enjoy a lot more than the consensus, it plays with a lot of my Pet Themes.

Obviously the spirit of the 40th has taken a few of us...

Aside from the John Smith and Peter Milligan books, every single one of these has been bought and read in the last 14 months.

(I'm not a billionaire, I sold an equivalent amount of X-Men books to fund this endeavour)

Dredd Shelf #1

Dredd Shelf #2

Dredd Shelf #3 + Zenith and my Pat Mills books

Strontium Dog, Durham Red, Rogue Trooper, Hewligan's Haircut, Lobster Random + Extreme Editions of Revere, Firekind, Slaughterbowl, and The Dead/Tyranny Rex

John Smith, Peter Milligan, Alan Moore, a bunch of meg floppies + miscelaneous others.

EDIT: Oh, and there's that Rian Hughes book with Dare and Really and Truly in it somewhere...

Looks like the 2000AD shop still has it for cover price https://shop.2000ad.com/catalogue/BI1384

Book 3 has some amazing exras at the back if you do find a copy.

Harrison's essay is certainly... entertaining

I got the first two in November, set up an Ebay alert for the Empty Suns. Stupidly let one buy-it-now for below cover price pass in early December, and then had to wait until late January for the next one.

And yeah, I couldn't find a single one in any other online retailer. Set an alert and wait, patiently.

EDIT: And they're very definitely a Trilogy. Although Book 2 ends on a great note that could easily have been a (downer) ending if they never came back, so it worked really well to get to that point and have to wait a few months for the conclusion

Mega City Justice was originally planned to be out on September 27th, and the 13th September slot is currently empty, so it's possible they've teased September's books instead of April's Missionary Man and Tour of Duty books by mistake?

Yeah. According to Barney, the City of The Dead volume has 238 story pages, and the remaining Armitage stories come to 208 pages. Add the Hershey and steel story along with the Steel solo, which are 30 pages total, and we might end up with 2 exactly evenly sized books containing the whole thing. If Barney is correct!

Which I guess for context means that unless you're an absolute completist, then you can skip the first two, the third and fourth ones are about 50/50, and most of Volume five is not in the mega collection.

The Psi-Files are an easier reading experience with the stories printed in (mostly) the right order though, instead of jumping about in the middle there.

General / Dredd Story Chronology Spreadsheet
« on: 26 January, 2017, 04:02:27 pm »

I only started reading Dredd last March and since then I've read A LOT of Dredd.

I read Case Files 1-11 in order, then jumped to Day of Chaos, then read everything else in a completely random order so I've been having a tough time making it all make sense in my head, I've got no sense of scale or context, what was happening in 2000AD, the Megazine, in what order and for how long....

So because I'm a massive nerd and my partner was away I spent the last three days with Barney and made this spreadsheet and thought I'd share it incase it'd be useful or interesting to anyone else.


It's only the stories in the books I have on my shelf (Complete runs (to date) of  the Case/Psi/Restricted Files and The Mega Collection), a bunch of Rebellion trades and a few dozen Megazine floppies.

it's based entirely on publication dates, rather than actual reading order

The colour coding might be a bit idiosyncratic.

It's probably full of errors, and there are definitely some... fudges to stop it breaking the format...

(I don't seem to be able to attach it to this thread, so I've had to upload it to mediafire, hope this doesn't break any rules)
