131 - Ro-Busters 2
132 - Rogue Trooper: War Machine
133 - Blunt
134 - Revere
135 - Samantha Slade
136 - The Fall of Deadworld
137 - Sin/Dex 4
138 - Sin/Dex 5
139 - Sin/Dex 6
140 - Sin/Dex 7

A mere 4 gaps left now(!), and we know that the following are coming:

Dredd
Necronauts
Blackhawk
Leviathan

So with Necronauts almost certainly twinned with Leviathan (but not confirmed), does that leave us with one final unknown? Or perhaps two Dredd books?

Have we had any indication of what's in the Dredd book? I'd assume that a "Best of John Wagner" book is out of the question thanks to the recent hardcover - but maybe a mash-up volume of outstanding Wagner & Grant stories, or even more recent stories like Guatemala / End of Days?

I'd predict that the last unknown is a 2nd Lawless volume, especially after the UC is now giving us a Waugh volume not published in the MC.

The fact it's a new authors revival of the character makes it feel like the Devlin book will stand alone from the MC vols fairly well. A Lawless book dropping into the story after the end of the MC book might be tougher. Still holding out for a 2nd Stickleback vol here

What about a Chimpsky or just Ken N book? His recent stories would make a great collection.

A book of Niemand Dredd would be awesome

I wonder how much of the Kot Devlin we get in that book. Curious they go all-in on the lesser run by McConville and don’t even mention Kot in the write-up but perhaps it’s more palatable to the masses.
