News / Re: Converting casual comic reader into Judge Dredd (Part 2)

Rather than dive right in to the Mega-Epics it might be better to give them a few of Dredd's one-off tales. There're loads to choose from covering everything to Slapstick Comedy to Intense Drama and could give a greater insight into Dredd and Mega-City One.

Couldn't agree more. Surely - for instance - Case Files 9 or 10 is the best bet? A range of stories that run the gamut from thriller to horror to comedy to satire, by a good mix of artists and writers, that gives a better sense of what the character and strip 'Judge Dredd' are all about than any single one of the epics could ever do?

And I'm always mystified when people recommend something as continuity-heavy as Origins for a first-timer!

Prog / Re: Prog 1946 - Dark Stars Rising

Cover: Lovely, dark, very much the kind of horror look that suits the tale.

Dredd:  Continues to be enjoyable, still no real explaination of the horse.....guess that will come later?

Alienist:  Some really cracking individual panels in a very well drawn tale.  Loved the snippets of tales from the roving parties.....reminded me of the scene in 'Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels' when they are in the car, and we lines from jokes, but nothing complete. 

3Rillers:  Not sure the colour is helping Lynch's art, but still a passable tale.

Grey Area:  Getting ready to shift gears....excellent!  Art is sublime.

Tales of Deadworld:  The strip of the prog for me this week.  Art wise, it's very well suited to the story, reminds me a bit of the designs in Hellraiser.  and is a joy to behold.  It also touches on a theme we saw in the IDW guff, with 'other' dark judges, but in this instance, it does it rather well.  Of course there would be factions and such in the new order imposed by the Dark Judges... we saw the beginings in 'Young Death' when the judges of Deadworld worked for the Dark Judges....tis is a natural and very believable progression for me.  Really looking forward to the next hit! ;)

Other Reviews / Re: Dredd: The Complete Case Files

Well it would be if they hadn't left the first one out (and the Kenny Who? sequel).

America II isn't a crossover. They're only leaving those out because of the shared copyright, and there's a collection of all of those.

I also have the America collection, so it's not that I'm missing out. It's just that given how important the America stories are in the Judge Dredd series, it seems like a baffling decision to leave them out of a series which purports to be a complete series.

Thanks guys.  It turns out my brother has a subscription with them to some Marvel chess set collection and he's had to write to them repeatedly to get broken pieces replaced.  It's all clearly down to the lack of protective packaging but they don't seem interested in doing anything about it.

I'm sure I'll get it sorted out but I just wanted to sound off.  I was looking forward to getting the books and this took the shine off it this time round.

There you go...

But very nice vintage pieces indeed.
Seen both of them around over the years, but stellar pieces. That Bolland cover..... How many kidneys do you have left now? ;-)
