Their free post code isn’t working for me. (I wanted to order a Marvel book.)

Ah, I missed the date! Silly me. Would have been a nice opportunity to pick up a couple of the Ultimate volumes then, but never mind.

It was mentioned that in the extension an index would be wanted by some.  I think a 'reference' book similar to the Dredd encyclopedia would be useful. One thing in particular with the stories in the collection is a timeline showing how the various stories 'fit' in relation to each other. Especially as the books aren't by time but theme.

it absolutely beggars belief that after extending the collection they still cannot offer an index.

New volumes are as expected:

Mega City Underworld
All four Bato Loco stories
Both Tempest Stories
Marauder (doesn't include the "Origin Story" strip. Wonder if that will squeeze in somewhere in the extension if there's another "dirty judges" themed book?)

Armitage
All the remaining Armitage stories

I think instead of just an index, if of course you mean just a story listing, you could have a book with the following.

Story Index
Timeline of notable events and stories tied to it.  (IE Block Mania/Apocalypse war), Necopolis etc.
A tech section.  Showing Judge uniform variants, Lawmasters, Lawgivers, Justice Departmant info, also tech info on the Sov-Block, Sino-Cit etc.
And so on.

It doesn't have to be as totally exact as the encyclopedia, but it's out of date anyway and is getting increasingly hard to find.

I'd really like a book of artists/writers and a list of the stories/volumes so I could find stuff.

I've made a start on a spreadsheet listing such a thing, however given there'll be 90 volumes and I've only catalogued 4 so far, it could take a while. Watch this space in about a year. I'm also including story page counts for the statistically minded among us - at present my money is on Colin MacNeil being highest, though Carlos could be a close second.

So Karyn, Janus & Juliet November.

Always pleased to have more Arthur Ranson art in regards to Juliet November.

Perhaps you've forgotten how Janus speaks.

If she hasn't been in any of the Dredd ones so far, it's likely I never saw her before.

"Like wow. I mean, wholly!"

Also: Morrison/Millar doing Dreddworld. I just hope these are better than I recall. Johnson's art is at least nice.
