Just wondering, as the previous Dredd movieverse strips got a U.S comics format release.

As far as I know, that's the plan...

It's also getting collected up in July 2017 with Arthur Wyatt and Ben Willsher's Dredd adventure 'Dust': https://www.amazon.co.uk/Dredd-Anderson-Deep-Arthur-Wyatt/dp/1781085536/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1479983429&sr=8-3&keywords=alec+worley

If'n you're interested, my Anderson Year One stories are also getting collected up in June 2017 as a print book made of paper with words in it... https://www.amazon.co.uk/Judge-Anderson-Year-Alec-Worley/dp/1781085552/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1479983429&sr=8-4&keywords=alec+worley

The third story - 'A Dream of the Nevertime' - should be out as an e-novella sometime before then...

Keep an eye on my website (which I'm hoping to update sometime before Christmas): http://alecworley.weebly.com

Do people still visit creator websites? Or are they the equivalent of a MySpace page made of laserdisc players?

I visited yours, Alec, but was crushingly disappointed by the lack of laserdisc players.

On a more serious note, I would always strongly advise creators to have a website. It's useful for fans to explore, and handy for journos regarding contact details and the like. I'd also suggest bunging it on a named domain, though, rather than something like Weebly. Own your own content AND your own name online, if you can. alecworley.com would cost a tenner or so to secure right now, for example.

Cheers, guys. I use it mainly as a portfolio for editors and wotnot. Never really had the time or wherewithal to look into named domains and stuff. I'd love to do more blogs on writing, but never have the time (the few I've done apparently get loads of hits every day, mainly from screenwriting sites). I know everyone's on Twitter these days, but I can't seem to stay on that thing longer than five minutes without it making me want to eat a hand grenade. :P

Your named domain doesn't have to be a proper website, just a redirect to the weebly blog, but at least  your name would be out there.  Oh, and I don't know about weebly, but some other blogs can automatically update twitter every time you make a post.

p.s. as someone who doesn't have the technology to read ebooks, I'll glad to see Anderson following in the Dredd: Year One footsteps and getting a dead tree edition.
