Listened to the second episode a few nights ago and was delighted to hear about some of the upcoming books that aren't the main Dredd strip, which Matt talked about. One of my concerns before deciding to subscribe was that I have just over half of the Case Files volumes and a couple of other collections set in the universe, and I was worried I may be picking up a lot of what I already have. But I was very happy to hear of some of the collections being put together reprinting some strips for the first time and that stories yet to make their way into the Case Files will be making an appearance. It all sounds very up my alley and, if I had had any concerns about how the books would be getting put together, they would have been thrown aside too after listening to the way that not only the books are being arranged thematically, but how the contents of each volume are too.
It's gonna be a belter of a collection, this. Although I'll no doubt continue with the Case Files at some point (moreso if they decide to slowly reprint volume 2 onwards in hardback as well, if the first 10th anniversary reprint sells well, presuming that's how such decisions are made), I really think this will be a great compilation of the essential Dredd tales and stories from the rest of the universe too.
More of these podcasts too, by the way! Loved listening to Pye explain why he's designed the books so and the difficulty with certain covers to some books and of course, more creators would be great to hear from.
