Just started on Vol.29. I have a habit of popping a spare bookmark straight into the index for the Megazine bit for when I get to that part... and I couldn't find it. Flicked to the beginning... a full index for the whole volume! Wait a minute... page numbers!

It amuses me how the Case Files continue to evolve and improve. But it does fill me with a slight foreboding that one day they'll release second editions with the various improvements incorporated (and proper coordinated spine art!) and I'll feel compelled to get the whole lot again.

Then again, I'd welcome that for the phone-book size vols 1-11. But maybe just nice custom dust-jackets foe the rest, yeah?

Was the Volume 1 hardback anniversary reissue much different inside?

Nicer glossy white paper, colour pages (center spreads, occasional back cover and front cover), and a 'book plate' which is a bit of cardboard with a picture of Dredd on by Carlos. I am not really sure what the point of the book plate is - I used it as a book mark.

er it's a picture of Dredd by Carlos on a bit of card. What's not to like?

Where as the bit of card I got with one of the Zenith hardbacks signed by Steve Yeowell seemed a bit more superfluous. It was not as if it was designed to be stuck into the book.

I don't know if it's down to the fact that the tooth completely slipped off my radar around the turn of the century (right up until DREDD and the hype surrounding DoC brought me back into the fold) but it's the stuff post-CF30 that has me the most excited for the Case Files. It's all brand new territory for me.
Whatever happened to Rico, Dolman and Cadet Paris? I'm sooo out of the loop.

Nearly a year on (best not to rush in) from my post asking where to go as I wasn't enjoying the early teens of CF...

I've just finished volume 24 as recommended and loved it. Barring a few small blips it was excellent. Great to be back on the old Lawmaster again. Thanks for the advice. Loving forward to the next few volumes very much.  :D

If memory serves , volume 30 will include Doomsday. Will be interesting to see whether they split the prog & Meg stuff as per the trades, or mix it up chronologically.

Looking at the included material, almost the whole volume will be Doomsday (just a couple of extra Megazine stories I think).
