Where did the news of the Judge Dredd Blu-Ray come from? Is it just a UK release?
Title: Re: Forthcoming Thrills!
Post by: radiator on 11 February, 2012, 11:19:09 am
I've got a strong hunch that we'll be seeing a UK/US Blu ray release to coincide with the new film - its already out in France and Germany - and Googling it I found it on a list of forthcoming releases. Still very much TBC though.

Post by: radiator on 11 February, 2012, 12:23:30 pm
It's only just occurred to me that, with Johnny Alpha back on the scene, the proposed new series of Durham Red could essentially be a spin-off of the revived Strontium Dog, maybe even connected in some way to the events of The Life and Death of Johnny Alpha?
Title: Re: Forthcoming Thrills!
Post by: Mardroid on 11 February, 2012, 02:31:34 pm
I haven't read much Durham Red apart from her small role in The Final Solution when she speaks with McNulty on the blower, kind of 'elseworld's' stuff that was in the latest release of Fiends of the Eastern Front (which doesn't really count as it's not really her, her) and the reprint that came with last month's Meg. (Cracking read by the way.)

The stuff I've read could easy fit either Strontium Dog continuity, I.e. Johnny being dead or everyone thinking he is dead. As for the other stories, I understand they're mainly set further in the future after a period of hibernation of her own. I thought that maybe the current SD stories were set while she is in hibernation.

When she woke up she wouldn't necessarily know that he had returned, or dismissed any historical accounts of his return as nonsense and conjecture. I haven't read any of that material, but from the small blurb attached to the collections I get the impression the historical accounts would be pretty spurious if the mutants of that age think of her as some kind of goddess. In fact his apparent resurrection could have added to her own apocryphal 'history'.

Of course there could be stuff in those collections that disputes this. I haven't read them, as I said.

Not sure where to post this,hope here is okay.
Does anyone know if 'Slaine: Demon Killer' has gone to a subsequent printing with the Dice Man strip error rectified? (I own a 1st print, but admit I am a stickler for such things!)
Thanks.

Ooh, I hadn't heard about new Simping Detective. I was thinking the other day how long it must've been since he was last in the Meg - six years at least. But no Fraser? That's disappointing.

Post by: vark on 17 February, 2012, 12:23:35 pm
I'm usually amazed by the fact that some GN re-re-reprints of 2000AD material (Kev Walker's ABC Warriors for example) become quite rapidly hard to find books. Does someone has an idea of the average circulation of a GN Rebellion reprint, and does it depends on the character ?
Same question for subsequent prints (like the actual second print of the complete Nemesis vol 3)?

Glad to see we’ll be getting more of Judge Anderson’s cadet career, and with Steve Yeowell art no less.  Rather hoping it's black and white.  Always enjoy Yeowell in b/w and maybe Alan Grant's going to go "stark and harrowing" again, which would surely work. 
Got my fanboy fingers crossed for a yesteryear appearance by old-timers Feyy or Ecks just for the juxtaposition with a young Anderson but I somehow just know I won’t be disappointed whatever shows up on the page.
What's that?  There are other upcoming thrills?  I missed them because they weren't similarly in bold and didn't draw my lazy, suggestible eye so well?

*Double checks the list*

Oh, Tharg, 'tis surely a year to check my thrill capacitors.  Cracking stuff to look forward to.  Durham Red with Ezquerra!  The conclusion of Red Seas!  The 2000AD cover art book!  Lovely.

Judging by the Thrills of the Future preview picture, it is. Unless they're just showcasing his pre-coloured work.

Especially if Tharg passes us off with some hack like D'Israeli, Edmund Bagwell or Henry Flint.  ;)

One imagines that the Spurrier droid's diodew would implode if Ol' Green Bonce said to him, "Now that Fraser's at a loose end what with DC cancelling Xombi how about we get him to knock up some more of that Simping jazz instead of completing Gutsville/"

In other exclusive new story news, The Wedding of Jena Makarov definitely isn't the last Dante story. That will be Sympathy for the Devil. Who knows, there might even be another one in between.

The Hondo City story, Project Behemoth, starts in Meg 324 and will be accompanied with a reprint of the quite good but pointlessly Dreddified Tiger Sun, Dragon Moon and the second episode of Spurrier/Ezquerra Dredd outing The Adjudicators.

It'll be a discussion well worth having. Dante for me, but that's for a different thread I'd guess.

I think a comic can have more than one highlight. They just have different tones...

Oh dear was that corny? Never mind. Point is, I like Halo Jones and Nicholai Dante in different ways.

And I'm not referring to the male/female thing, although that's true too.

I assume the Absalom TP will. It seems standard practice at this point for new series to collect the two main stories, along with any one-offs between them in new TPs.

Does anyone know if the Absalom trade will be collecting everything up to and including the thrill that just ended? Looking forward to that one, and to the Kingdom trade. If the recent trade delay continues the way it has been going lately, that one will probably be here in about a month.

I assume the Absalom TP will. It seems standard practice at this point for new series to collect the two main stories, along with any one-offs between them in new TPs.

Great, thanks! Gettiing both Caballistics trades has probably been the most difficult task I've faced since starting to collect various 2000AD trades, so now my shop is getting what I need for me right away. Looking forward to Absalom for sure.

U.S. Amazon site lists several things I hadn't seen mentioned before:

July 17: Judge Dredd: Inferno (credits Morrison, Millar and Ezquerra, which I take to mean that it'll include "Purgatory" too; I note also that there's no longer a listing for the "Ichabod Azrael" book)

Oct. 11: Tharg's Creepy Chronicles ("writers – Mark Millar, Gordon Rennie, Chris Weston, Simon Spurrier, Arthur Wyatt and artists – Dave D'Antiquis, Frazer Irving, Lee Garbett, Chris Weston, Edmund Bagwell")

Nov. 13: The Ten-Seconders: American Dream

Dec. 11: Judge Dredd: The Garth Ennis Collection (artists listed are "Steve Dillon, John Burns, Dermot Power, Cliff Robinson, Greg Staples, Colin McNeil" (sic)--but not John Higgins, which is a pity, because "Monkey On My Back" could really use an encore appearance)

Still going for the big name draws rather than quality. Still I'm sure they know what they're doing and if it draws people in all the better I guess?

As for the 'Ichabod' book its still on the UK site I'm pleased to say with a July date, we'll know soon enough if we see a start date for the new series if it'll make that kinda date?

I was about to make my traditional comment of 'well that's another one that's bound to change US opinions of Dredd ::)', and then I thought: 'hang on, I'd quite like a collection that included Purgatory'.  I could always take off the specs and gaze lovingly at the art from arms length without being nauseated by the dialogue...

I wonder is there a foreign language edition in the offing?

Well there's a lot more of them than there is of Langley's stories so a case files treatment is cheaper, plus they're black & white which suits the current format.

Yeah. Reprint the B&W stories as a 'Celt Files' a and then do hardcover 'original size' trades for the colour Slaine strips.

Sure.

Not that I've seen yet. Seems unlikely as they have just released the first volume again in America and the last volume will be out over here soon. Maybe one day but I haven't seen any mention yet. Worry not about being late to the party. Pick up the first trade and wade in. It's worth the trip.

I can't recall anything and a Case Files format seems unnecessary. However, a nice hard cover Omnibus-style collection would be nice, or perhaps an oversize "Library Edition" (I think the Hellboy ones collect two trades in one of these volumes), as it'd be a fine way to celebrate one of the modern classics and the latter format might go down better on the Continent (I'm surprised there aren't any out there yet as it seems like the perfect story for our European cousins).

I'd LOVE a huge mega-collection for Dante.  I've been a bit slack in picking up the individual trades but really, really want to be able to sit down and read it in a single (very, very long) sitting.

I suppose the sheer quantity of colour artwork involved makes a single collection unlikely, though...

Uh how tempting is that, I only own the first couple of these. I'll wait to see if the book will be UK or US dimensions (given that's its a DC book I suspect the smaller alas) but its a great way to get Dredd into more US readers hands either way.

Wonder what the extra content in the JD/Batman trade is? Might be the Lobo special alright. Or maybe a lot of sketchbook material.

Count my vote for an Omnibus style collection of Dante trades too. My preferred model would be the current BPRD Plague of Frogs omnibus editions that collect three trades in one book with lots of extra material.

Though the colour Case Files tend to be somewhere in the region of 280 pages so I suppose it might only be economically feasible to do two issues at a time. Would love to see something like this for Dante anyway as it's 2000AD's best series of the last ten years (hell, maybe ever!) and I'm not up for re-shelling out for 11 or 12 trades, some of which are hard to find  :'(

In other exclusive new story news, The Wedding of Jena Makarov definitely isn't the last Dante story. That will be Sympathy for the Devil. Who knows, there might even be another one in between.
I suppose this is as good a place as any to post this astounding revelation which came to me in a flash tonight. The Dante Gambit is going to see the final reckoning with Konstantin, which leaves Vladimir as the last villain left.

Maybe  it wasn't quite the first episode, but Nikolai Dante starts with our devil may care hero helpless in chains before Tsar Vladimir the Conqueror. How else can it end?

Maybe I meant crucially. Coherence is at a premium.

I see from this weeks nerve centre that as well as new Dredd IDW will be releasing Deluxe Treasury editions of Classic Dredd. Any idea what format these are likely to take ? Glossy oversized hardbacks with a small page count ?
Title: Re: Forthcoming Thrills!
Post by: radiator on 03 April, 2012, 09:48:19 am
Not sure, I'm not really familiar with IDW books, but I would suggest looking at their Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles output for what to expect.

There is talk of colouring old classic Dredd strips, which I'm sure is not going to go down well with us lot, but might help broaden the audience globally. Sad as it is, I think there's a large percentage of comic book readers that simply won't read b&w comics. I would hope that they make a point of pushing recent Dredd stories like Total War and Mandroid as well as the older stuff - all of Wagner's work since The Pit is so good that it really, really deserves to reach a wider audience. I've long held the opinion that modern era Dredd (and John Wagner in general) would eventually gain more attention and popularity, and I hope that time is now.

Crossing my fingers that IDW will do a reprint of the Brian Bolland Judge Death stories - its feels like weeks now since the last reissue of that material.
Title: Re: Forthcoming Thrills!
Post by: radiator on 03 April, 2012, 09:50:41 am
And if they're insistent on colouring stuff, how about recolouring stuff that would actually benefit, like Fading of the Light and the non-Carlos episodes of The Pit!
Title: Re: Forthcoming Thrills!
Post by: James Stacey on 03 April, 2012, 09:54:01 am
I don't really have a problem with them recolouring old strips. No doubt they would have been all colour originally if the budget had been there to do it. It's not like its a conscious effort to be black and white such as modern strips like Low Life and Insurrection. Look at how amazing Hook Jaw is in Strip Magazine, I really think it could breathe new life into old friends.
Title: Re: Forthcoming Thrills!
Post by: radiator on 03 April, 2012, 10:10:48 am
I'm in two minds about it. A deluxe hardback of Block Mania/The Apocalypse War (sensitively and appropriately) coloured, and printed of heavy, matt finish paper? Yeah, I'd buy that in a second.

But it would feel like a crime to colourise something like the aforementioned Bolland Judge Death pages...
Title: Re: Forthcoming Thrills!
Post by: robprosser on 03 April, 2012, 10:23:32 am
They've done a good job of colouring the old b & w Dr Who strips so I think they'll do a good job on the Dredd stuff as well.

Brass Sun seems to have dropped off the list. Foolishly (despite Stevie giving us the pointer (http://forums.2000adonline.com/index.php/topic,27716.msg567940.html#msg567940)) I never did Google it. I now have. The writer is Ian Edginton and the artist is INJ Culbard.

From 2006:

Quote
What's next for you?

Brass Sun is a fantasy epic about a clockwork solar system and its inhabitants but that’s a little way off yet. There’s a very good chance it will have a home in a market outside of comics but I don’t want to say anymore for now.

www.2000adreview.co.uk/features/interviews/2006/edginton/ian-edginton.shtml

From January this year:

Quote
IE: I have several new series for 2000 AD over here; there’s the fourth series of the steampunk gothic Stickleback with artist D’Israeli; the eleventh and final series of the pirate fantasy The Red Seas, with Steve Yeowell; and the first of a new science-fantasy series, The Brass Sun, with I. N. J. Culbard of Vertigo’s New Deadwardians fame.

www.darkhorse.com/Blog/809/immortal-interview-writer-ian-edginton

So there you go - seems to still be on track and scheduled to appear in the prog. Time to stick it back on the list I think.

Post by: Taryn Tailz on 05 April, 2012, 06:34:14 pm
Pleased to see another series of Stickeback is on the way, as its been far too long since the last series. The Brass Sun actually sounds quite interesting, so looking forward to that when it materialises.

I don't want to start a new thread just for this question , so it's best just to ask it here. Are there still plans to release Rogue Trooper : Tales of Nu-Earth vol.3?  Vol.2 ends with him about to land on Horst. I know that there were the other graphic novels like Re:Gene which print the Horst storyline , but why not in the Tales... series? Then there are the Hit...stories , the Fridays , War Machine etc...

Now that The Red Seas is coming to an end I really hope it finally gets the case files treatment. All 11 series should fit into two case files size volumes.

True, but case files style volume normally sell better than skinny trades. Case in point, the original Robo-Hunter trades did not do too well but we still got them in case files format. I'm not sure, but I think Anderson may have been a similar case also.

...So here's hoping!

I always though the Hit stories were okay, though they did go on a bit long. I've never read the finale, so it's good that it's finally being republished.

That said, I quite enjoyed the Harlem Heroes reboot when it first appeared - so maybe my taste isn't to be trusted. . .

Jumbo-sized update today - I have taken my eye off the ball somewhat recently due to moving house etc. Lots of exciting new things coming up, but I'm bound to miss a few so as ever, just shout and I'll add it to the list...

As for the Hardback reprint of The Horned God, I wonder if it's gonna be leftover from the US May 2011 edition (it is advertised on amazon uk with the same cover) with just a white sticker added on the back cover with the price in £, like it was the case for the Black Hole GN published last December in UK.

Looks like some thrill-packed days ahead. Out of that lot I am mostly looking forward to the following:
Nikolai Dante: Sympathy for the Devil – only 5 episodes! Criminal  :(

Durham Red: The 'Nobody Wants This Job' Job - looking forward to this, although there’s a chance it could turn out to be another Cadet Anderson (still, Carlos on art is a bonus)

Grey Area – more excited about the prospect of this returning than I thought I would be for some reason.

The Grevious Journey of Ichabod Azrael (and the Dead Left in his Wake): Manhunt – this is going to bleak, sparse and utterly epic.

Aquila: Blood of the Iceni – as above

Lenny Zero: Zero's Seven – be great to have this hardboiled strip back, and Willsher is the perfect choice to inherit Jock’s shoes.

Strontium Dog - The Life and Death of Johnny Alpha: Mutant Spring – nuff said.

Gunheads – more Boo Cook = one happy MGB

Stickleback & Brass Sun – especially the news that INJ Culbard will be involved in the latter

Thanks for the update Radiator  :)

Lenny Zero confirmed to start in 1792, so 1790 definitely isn't a jumping-on prog, meaning that Dante could concievably run for anything up to 14 episodes.

Just about to add that. I was wondering how confident people where that all the other stories added to 1790 are actually starting then. Have any been confirmed (except Grey Area which I think Tharg announced in this weeks Prog?)

Marvellous news - I always loved "Kingdom of the Blind" and was amazed to read a blog recently by David Bishop saying he didn't think it was very good. I read pretty much all of the Dredd prose novels, and that was always my favourite. The other two are pretty good choices, too!

Kingdom of the Blind - urgh. Not my best work, even among the five Dredd novels I wrote.
It is the perviest Dredd novel, as I put in lots of gratuitous sex scenes to keep myself interested.
The copy editor at Black Flame freaked out and removed anything involving anal penetration, IIRC.
[Good thing she never got her hands on any of my Nikolai Dante novels - now they are pervy...]

From what little I know about the forthcoming film, my first Dredd novel for Black Flame - Bad Moon Rising - actually shares some plot elements with it [entirely by coincidence, I hasten to add].

It's just not good business - always leave 'em wanting more. 

(Example: the recent 'vintage' RotJ Luke Skywalker from Hasbro: he should be the ultimate 'complete' Jabba's Palace Luke, having a lovely sculpt, endless articulation, a soft-goods under tunic, his long-long-absent utility belt (removable) and even the half-built lightsabre and space-screwdriver from the Blu-Ray deleted scene, but: instead of his simple cloak he has a non-movie-accurate sleeved robe, and his hair is parted on the wrong side.  Quality control oversights in an otherwise perfact, or a deliberate attempt to make people buy yet another Jedi Luke in the future?)

That's what I was wondering, too - the complete Bolland doesn't mean the complete story in any of those cases.  To be fair to Tharg, though, "Judge Dredd: The Carlos Ezquerra collection" included parts of stories not drawn by Carlos.

I wonder whether 1947 is an actual serial or a Past Imperfect or something.  If it's a serial, Tharg really did sneak one under the radar.

Stevie's money is on it  being part of a second season of Tharg's Thr3llers, what with Gunheads  being a three parter & all.

But more importantly,  sincere apologies to the Wyatt & Roach droids for pasting verbatim a FB post in his excitement instead of summarising the relevance of said post.

About 10 minutes after doing so Stevie realised that was a real Rich Johnson kind of thing to do.

Possible new Dark Judges series by John Wagner/Greg Staples - very much TBC

Sounds like this is now confirmed; from over in the "Day of Chaos finale" thread:

I asked Mr Wagner that question over on that thar faceybook. I'm sure he won't mind it being c&p'd here.

--John, is there a reason why Anderson hasn't made an appearance yet in DoC? I've noticed you have used her less and less in recent years, do you see her more as Alan's baby now?
Quote from: John Wagner
You're right, it's because I regard her as Alan's character. She will, however, be making a major appearance in a forthcoming story with Greg Staples, "Dark Judgement". Greg's very busy and wants to take his time over it - it'll be beautiful - and I've over-run a bit on length as well, so it may be quite some time forthcoming, I think!

For those of you who are decrying reprinting something that only came down in the last shower this will coincide with

You're not the sole squaxx wondering whether this is surely a misprint for wouldn't the mighty Wagner....? But if it's cut from the smae cloth as Meg 315's In the Absence of the Sacred there'll be no worries there.

Regardless of  the Trevallion droid draws Ratfink! Tharg should declare a bank holiday to commerate this inspired match.

Post by: Adamskilad on 29 June, 2012, 07:57:59 pm
Yeah, but if you get the Megazine you get the supplement whether you've read the reprints or not; whereas you can pick and choose with trades, depending on what you already have in episodic form or just love so much you wanna see in a big fat collection. Therefore I'd rather see collections that are a bit older or tie in nicely to stories just starting in 2000ad or ther Megazine, thus cutting down on the irk factor if I already have the stories and especially if said stories are still fresh in my mind.

Post by: hippynumber1 on 29 June, 2012, 08:43:36 pm
Granted, I'd rather see older stories, or stuff post prog 1211 (which is where I stopped buying the weekly) but there are new readers coming on board all the time - so the fink collection ties in nicely with the new Alan Grant story for newbies! The ones that irk me are the Dredd collections - that's what the case files are for!

Stevie's fighting with Cyber-Matt Block on this one!

Ratfink is a cracking self-contained  modern Dredd story that’s just the ticket for new or lapsed readers who are picking up the Meg in the wake of the fillum.

Marauder also makes sense in light of the big push for the Meg in the States. What with Richard Elson taking the Mouse’s Marvel’s coin & all.

Stevie made a real arse out of arse out of parsing placement of punctuation in that  piece (of copy) didn’t he?  Put that down to a sleepless month following a tear to the  left earlobe Thrill Synapses overloading  at the prospect of Tiernan's beady-eyed Ratfink with a double helping of Edgy on the side. That Red Seas title is a bit spoilerific if it’s suggesting what Stevie is thinking.

So no separate thrill Survival Geeks, just a teaser for Weston’s  Dredd.  :-[

Oh, and 3rillers are back already.

I think they should do this with both Sin/Dex and Nikolai Dante, both long-running series. I'd love to see Nikolai Dante in a bigger trade, with lots of sketchbook material etc. I'm also a sucker for author/artist forewards and the like. It'd be great to have a few on the Dredd Case Files, even if it's just Garth Ennis apologising again :D  I think Dante deserves that extra special treatment as it's such a self-contained story and has relatively few creators working on it.

Plus I just want to read the whole thing again without forking out a load of money for a dozen trades or havign to dig out the progs  :-\

Post by: maryanddavid on 01 July, 2012, 11:52:48 pm
The 5 year reprint rule was for the old weeklies, it was consider safe to reprint 5-year-old material, current readers wouldnt have read it with the turnover in readership. The early 2000ad annuals and specials reprinted Ginuae Pig and One Eyed Jack etc until enough time had elapsed to start reprinting Flesh and Shako in the annuals.

Those rules dont apply now, I would like to see older material getting a look, but I also want to see the Meg continue, so maybe to alternate every month between newer and older material. Return to armageddon, hint hint. Im looking forward to Ratfink. I really liked that.

That is more an argument for getting the original volumes back into print (I think it has been requested in the relevant thread (http://forums.2000adonline.com/index.php/topic,29580.0.html)). As we have the first one getting a US release, we might be looking at the second one dropping somewhere along the line, so it might be simpler to pick those up.

Looks like they've dusted off a few of the old Black Flame Dredd novels as part of the getting-stuff-out-there-in-Dredd-movie-year plan:

"Dredd" - collecting Dredd vs Death, Kingdom of the Blind, & The Final Cut (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Dredd-Collecting-Death-Kingdom-Blind/dp/1781080771/ref=sr_1_7?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1337345064&sr=1-7).

I thought "The Final Cut" was a great Dredd read.

Cover now up at Amazon UK -  I wonder if there will be a tie-in novelisation given this has "Dredd" in stonking great letters and the three titles in the omnibus in much smaller print.

Hi Moloch-R, I think you misunderstand me.  I realise this is just the three reprints in omnibus format.  What I meant was it has "DREDD" in great big letters and a photo from the movie on the cover.  If there was to be a move tie-in novelisation then it would also have "DREDD" in great big letters and a photo from the movie on the cover.  I would expect if there were two books then this one, the non-movie one, would be better differentiated.  Since it's not I questioned whether there will be a tie-in novel.

Joe - I agree about "The Final Cut", a great Dredd novel.

I've only read one Dredd novel before, I can't remember the title but it was by Dave Bishop and was about a monster on the loose in MC1. It wasn't very good at all and put me off reading any more.

That sounds like Silencer, my 3rd Virgin novel. Yes, it was a bit shit.

Not quite sure why Rebellion have chosen to reprint Kingdom of the Blind in the movie tie-in omnibus, as that's also not great. If asked, I would have suggested Bad Moon Rising, it's a much better novel IMHO.

ABC Warriors: Return to Earth
Brass Sun: Wheel of Worlds (Yay!)
The Simping Detective (No hints on artist but still -- double yay!)
Low Life: Saudade (Triple yay with a cherry on top!)

& intriguingly...

Quote
...something sinister is abroad in Justice Department in "Judge Dredd: The Cold Deck."

which could possibly be either the long time between drinks return of Dan Abnett to Old Stoney Face or the major Al Ewings storyline for which the seeds were sown in The Family Man back in Megs 312 & 313.

Kind of a stupid question--  but I'm used to knowing when the next case files is scheduled for release once the latest is out.

Surprised to not see volume 20 scheduled anywhere.  Do we have confirmation that these volumes will still be released? 

Hoping maybe I've just missed spotting it some place.

Bit of a glut of undercover judge tales in the prog, what with Low Life and Simping Detective coming off the heels of Lenny Zero!

...something sinister is abroad in Justice Department in "Judge Dredd: The Cold Deck."

which could possibly be either the long time between drinks return of Dan Abnett to Old Stoney Face or the major Al Ewings storyline for which the seeds were sown in The Family Man back in Megs 312 & 313.

Or something else entirely.

Judge Dredd Year One: City Fathers
THE MAKING OF THE LAWMAN...

Mega-City One, 2080. It is Joe Dredd's first year as a full-eagle Judge – he may have been created from the genes of Eustace Fargo, the ‘Father of Justice’, and thus part of an illustrious lineage, but right now Dredd is not long graduated from the Academy, and yet to establish himself as the metropolis’s toughest, greatest cop. His reputation will be moulded in the years ahead, but at the moment he’s a young lawman, fresh on the streets.

The brutal murder of a Justice Department-sanctioned spy sparks an investigation that will see Dredd trawl the criminal underworld in the hunt for the killer – and he will discover that all is not what it seems in the sector's murky black market. Something new has entered the system, and unless Dredd can stop it, chaos will be unleashed...

This is an ebook exclusive novella from Matthew Smith, editor of 2000 AD and author of the novels, Judge Dredd: The Final Cut and Tomes of the Dead: Words of Their Roaring.

Yep, this collection is - IIRC - going to cover Something Wicked, Satan, then move onto the 2000ad Steve Sampson sequence of Wonderwall/Crusade and then R*evolution, along with a few one-offs.

I know everyone pretty much hates Crusade - but it does kind of wrap up that whole era of Anderson and we got to see a few long-running supporting characters meet their end (imo it was the last Anderson story before the whole thing just started treading water - does Anderson even have a supporting cast any more, other than Shenker?).

I'll definitely be picking up this one, but can certainly live without a volume 04.

There definately needs to be more Indigo Prime in the prog, preferably with Bagwell on art duties again. One of the best thrills of last year, all the more so because I wasn't really expecting to like it; John Smith has something like a 60/40 hit rate with me, I hadn't enjoyed Dead Eyes very much, and I've never read any previous Indigo Prime stuff so was clueless as to the provenance - but it was a hit all the way. Loved how very rich and dense it was; a proper exercise in worldbuilding. Don't think I've enjoyed a 'new' thrill so much since Defoe's debut (although Absalom has since pipped it).*


*While I'm at it - more Defoe and Absalom please.

Interesting, for me there is more of a direct link between Dead Eye and new Indigo Prime than Dead Eye and old Indigo Prime. For all sorts of reasons but mainly as its the story of Danny Redman.

I definitely think Dead Eyes needs to be packaged with the new Indigo Prime material, if only because of the plot threads and characters that follow through both. And Dead Eyes represents the revival of the Indigo Prime series, and it is distinctly different then the original run. So putting it in a 'Incomplete Indigo Prime' reprint doesn't feel right.

Its a little tough though, because like The Dead Man, like Malone, like The Vort; the surprise reveal at the end is sort of why the series is so memorable and exciting. And putting it in an Indigo Prime collection sort of kills that surprise.

I mean, its necessary for a lot of practical reasons to call the book Indigo Prime. But part of me kinda wishes it was called Dead Eyes, with no subtitles (or indication in the back synopsis of it turning into Indigo Prime)
Title: Re: Forthcoming Thrills!
Post by: radiator on 23 August, 2012, 06:05:39 pm

Robo-KEEF, while we'd all love to see a new edition of the DC/Rebellion Complete Indigo Prime, I really hope that before you take too many steps, please have a look at how INcomplete the existing edition is.  It's missing their first appearance ("A Change of Scenery," which was reprinted a bit later in The Best of Tharg's Future Shocks), and their surprising reappearance in the Tyranny Rex story "Woody Allen."  Those two definitely need to be part of any Indigo Prime book, because they define the characters and the concept a whole lot better than most of their other early appearances, and it's a heck of a lot kinder to the reader than starting a book with "The Issigri Variations."

You could fit those two - along with, ideally, a foreword from Smith - inside one new 16-page signature, but I'd encourage going a little further and also adding the Tyranny Rex story "Soft Bodies."  That's certain to make everybody's head hurt almost as much as "Issigri," but it also introduced Fervent and Lobe, and let readers kind of understand just how big and weird this concept that Smith was developing is.

And tell your alien boss to get the blasted strip back in the prog.  Its absence is heartbreaking.  At least a new 10-page story in Prog 2013, and every year-end edition, seriously.  With an active roster of dozens and dozens of operatives, there's no reason why Smith can't write one-offs with all sorts of weird characters and agents without devoting energies to his ongoing subplots and lead characters, such as they are.

That is... if Bagwell isn't already working on drawing more...  http://robot6.comicbookresources.com/2012/08/whats-edmund-bagwell-up-to/

That said, thanks for scheduling Anthropocalypse.  I am looking forward to it.

Its a little tough though, because like The Dead Man, like Malone, like The Vort; the surprise reveal at the end is sort of why the series is so memorable and exciting. And putting it in an Indigo Prime collection sort of kills that surprise.

I mean, its necessary for a lot of practical reasons to call the book Indigo Prime. But part of me kinda wishes it was called Dead Eyes, with no subtitles (or indication in the back synopsis of it turning into Indigo Prime)

do you think people would be adverse to buying a book that essentially has two covers - one side being Dead Eyes and the other Indigo Prime? Once you finish reading DE you flip the book over and start on IP...

A Dead Eyes/Indigo Prime flip book? That's certainly an idea. And I'm not sure if I've ever seen it done with a trade collection, ever. For weirdness factor it certainly fits the Indigo Prime concept.


My suggestions if you go that route... series synopsis on the inside front and back covers (so if the reader wants to know what the book is about, they just open up to the inside cover for which ever story they're looking at.

Placement of the barcode and price tag could be tricky, it'd be best if both were located on the inside cover. But if that's not possible, probably should put it on the Dead Eyes cover side..

Next idea. REVERSIBLE SPINE! So if you want to shelve it as Dead Eyes you can, if you want to shelve it as Indigo Prime, you can. Though creator credits might be a bit tricky to fit to look right.

Just slapped this together just to test how the spin could look, or at least how I imagine it could look. Based it on the most recent spine revision as seen used on Abaslom and Ampney Crucis Investigates (which actually makes it a lot easier). It could work I think. An actual graphic designer might have a different opinion though.

Not a 2000AD title, but I notice that Haynes have a "Dan Dare: Spacefleet Operations (Owner's Workshop Manual)" (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Dan-Dare-Spacefleet-Operations-Workshop/dp/0857332864/ref=sr_1_3?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1345819579&sr=1-3) scheduled for next year.

For those that haven't noticed, they've expanded their 'Owners Workshop Manuals' into a variety of famous vehicles (the Titanic, Spitfires, Concorde, Routemaster Buses, etc) and fictional ones (the Millennium Falcon, Thunderbirds, Klingon Bird of Prey, etc).

I thought I'd post it even though it's not 2000AD related as I'm sure there will be some love for Dan Dare here.

Giving us another volume covering the Kai, Swan Children etc (which I'm going to assume will be called Lord Of The Beasts), then a volume covering just The Secret Commonwealth (which had better contain all the missing annual stories if they want anyone to buy it).  After that we're at paperback reprints of the Langley hardbacks.

Judge Dredd Year One: City Fathers
THE MAKING OF THE LAWMAN...

Mega-City One, 2080. It is Joe Dredd's first year as a full-eagle Judge – he may have been created from the genes of Eustace Fargo, the ‘Father of Justice’, and thus part of an illustrious lineage, but right now Dredd is not long graduated from the Academy, and yet to establish himself as the metropolis’s toughest, greatest cop. His reputation will be moulded in the years ahead, but at the moment he’s a young lawman, fresh on the streets.

The brutal murder of a Justice Department-sanctioned spy sparks an investigation that will see Dredd trawl the criminal underworld in the hunt for the killer – and he will discover that all is not what it seems in the sector's murky black market. Something new has entered the system, and unless Dredd can stop it, chaos will be unleashed...

This is an ebook exclusive novella from Matthew Smith, editor of 2000 AD and author of the novels, Judge Dredd: The Final Cut and Tomes of the Dead: Words of Their Roaring.


I just read the first chapter and really want to download it, but only have a Kobo- anyone know if it's downloadable in a kobo-friendly format? I could get the kindle version and convert it, I guess, but I'd rather not on principle. And laziness.

Judge Dredd: Day of Chaos - The Fourth Faction - Feb 2013

Just reading the blurb for this on Amazon...

Quote
Legendary Judge Dredd-co-creator John Wagner has written the longest, most eventful and world-shattering Dredd-epic of his career. Mega-City One has seen nothing like this since the Apocalypse War, and this time things are looking even darker. With the much-loved mayor of Mega-City One presumed dead by the citizens, an election has been scheduled to choose his successor. Cadet Judge Hennessey has predicted that something terrible will happen on the Election Day and she may be right. East-Meg assassin Nadia has arrived in the Big Meg, looking for a scientist who has created a very dangerous virus... This is the first of three volumes chronicling Day of Chaos

I'm hoping for the same thing myself! The PJ stories are a must, of course - but Skinning Room would be really cool. As you say not strictly related to DoC but in terms of the TPB collections the jump between ToD and DoC is going to be really abrupt without it and similar. And given what happens to the administration at the end of DoC, it would be nice to briefly get to see Francisco being Chief Judge and Dredd being on the council before they both quit!

Also - was there a story I missed where Hershey came back? Maybe in the Megazine? The way she left the city was lovely, but the end of DoC has her return in a really offhand way that made me wonder if I missed something.

Yeah, I would assume The Skinning Room will be in there.

Fifty Year Man and The Edgar Case had very little to do with the overall Tour of Duty/Mutants in Mega-City One storyline, but I was very pleased they were included in the ToD trades for similar reasons.

Jimbo - the story you mention is Hot Night In 95 - which ran in the Megazine. Hershey returns to MC1, goes out on patrol with Dredd, and we meet anarchist group 'Rage Against the Megs' for the first time. I expect this will be in the DoC book 1 also.

My question is will the third book be a collection of all the post-DoC stories like Debris, Innocent etc...

Okay so I haven't gone through my whole collection to check, but aren't there some longer stories in which Ezquerra alternates with other artists? If so a "complete" Judge Dredd/Ezquerra would either have to include some other artists or have stories with missing bits... Admittedly I could be wrong as I'm not the kind of fan with a photographic memory about which artists worked on which stories. I tend to get too wrapped up in the stories to notice.

I really enjoyed American Reaper. It's a little bit flashy but it's got a good premise.

I'm one of those who enjoyed American Reaper and look forward to it returning. Admittedly it's not the kind of thing I'd normally expect from Pat Mills... it's more the comic strip equivalent of a popcorn movie. But like a popcorn movie, it's entertaining (IMO).

Both of whom look just like the artist. As do many of the other male characters he draws. Go look at his website portfolio. It's very noticeable.

Prog 2013 content details via Diamond Previews for January

First episodes...
Strontium Dog (Mutant Spring)
Ampney Crucis
Red Seas (Final Series)

One-Offs...
Aquila
Absalom
Judge Dredd (Christmas themed)

Also, the listing for Prog 1812 (the single Prog in December 2012 Prog Pack) is kind of interesting...

"Life and Death are held in the balance and the stakes have never been higher as this issue is given over to one complete 28-page story!"

I assume this is a Judge Dredd story, but its interesting to have a whole issue for one strip.

Yes - I believe the 28 page Dredd story is connected to 'The Cold Deck' - Al Ewing's 'big' Dredd story that we got the prologue for in this weeks prog. I don't know much about the story, except that it seems to draw together all of Al's hanging story threads (and the Kazan clone thing that was started by Gordon Rennie).

I can't wait - I've been wanting Al to do a longer Dredd strip for ages!

They could be exactly the same as the S&S trades - the Rebellion editions of Harry 20 & Hewligans Haircut are the S&S editions with a different barcode stuck over the S&S bar-code.

What is Rebellion's relationship with S&S like these days anyway now that they also publish Judge Dredd with IDW?

Also, the 2000AD forthcoming books page has been updated, they now state if a cover image a temporary one on the blurbs.

If true, a bit annoying (both stories). Unless parts 3 of Insurrection and Ichabod Azrael are much larger than parts one and two, they won't be enough to fill a proper trade. At least, Rebellion have not released ANY trades even close to being that thin to date.

Just been checking on Amazon what date the Dredd Batman Collection is coming out (27th Nov as it goes) when I've stumbled across these to trades that I don't think have been mentioned here before. Apologise if they have and this is old news.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Judge-Dredd-Child-Saga/dp/1781081093/ref=sr_1_3?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1350289313&sr=1-3 (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Judge-Dredd-Child-Saga/dp/1781081093/ref=sr_1_3?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1350289313&sr=1-3)

A 'Manga-sized' version of Judge Child.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Strontium-Dog-Mutant-John-Wagner/dp/1781080313/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1350289553&sr=1-1 (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Strontium-Dog-Mutant-John-Wagner/dp/1781080313/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1350289553&sr=1-1)

I assume this is an S&S release for the US market?

There's also a new edition of 'Origins' listed again I'm guessing for the US market?

Edit to add: Broadening the search there is also a new Zombo and Snow Tiger listed but they are down as the back end of 2013 so at this stage given Amazon's reliability that may well be fiction (though the Zombo one seems probable at some point) and you can see why they'd release Snow/Tiger with the names attached so who knows...)

Strontium Dog is a US release, yes. Also, the third Rogue phone book turned up today. It switches paper stock (to the high-quality stuff) and there's sadly no Cinnabar, but it does have a huge chunk of classic strips, including everything from Progs 410 (The Return of Rogue Trooper) through to 603 (Hit Four), The Final Hit (in black and white, not colour), Sci-Fi Special stories from 82, 83, 84, 86 and annual stories from 86 and 87. There are some colour covers too and it's a pretty heavy volume.

I just totted up what's left. Cinnabar has 52 pages. The Rennie stuff takes you to 223. Diceman adds another 32, if that's not been collected yet in the phone books. That'd be a bit slim, but you could always bung in War Machine (70) as an extra and pretend everything "Fr1day" after that point just didn't happen. You'd then have a mid-350s book (accounting for "blank" pages and extras).

I left the world of Brit comics in the 70's and departed for a world of exclusive spandex. When I grew weary of all things superhero a couple of years ago and began to re-discover Brit-Cit, Charley's War was one of the gems that re-ignited my passion. A special 2014 edition would be great.

I'm really looking forward to having a lovely shiny hardback complete collection of Charley's War, as has been said only two to go and one of those very soon. What would be lovely for the anniversary is if they were able to produce 'deluxe' editions of the hardcovers with some of the early poor reproduction sorted and colour pages in colour. Not at all sure if that's possible and doubt very much if its financially viable but a man can dream can't he.

From Pat Mills' blog:

The French edition of Charley’s War Volume 3 will be on sale in French stores on October 15th.  It’s astonishing and very gratifying that such a series should sell so well in France.

But this latest edition has something extra, never seen in the British editions. Selected pages in colour!  They were in a half-tone on the Titan version, but now they can be seen for the first time as they originally appeared in the pages of Battle.

Damn those Frenchies!

Post by: IndigoPrime on 09 November, 2012, 12:47:51 pm
I suspect there has to be a balance. If the Case Files got much thicker, they'd soon become prohibitively expensive, due to using the superior paper and colour print. It's also worth noting that the difference in paper stock also makes a much bigger difference than many perhaps realise: although there are fewer pages in the recent Dredd volumes than the Rogue Trooper ones, the difference isn't nearly as large as you'd think from looking at the books. Colour Dredd Case Files/Restricted Files have averaged around 300 pages. By comparison, the Rogue volumes have been around 400. (As for other 'phonebooks', the Nemesis ones had about the same page count as Dredd Case Files, as did some of the early Strontium Dog books.)

Yes it did occur to me that although the latest Rogue Trooper volume is printed on the 'superior' paper stock normally used for colour editions, very little of the content is actually in colour. Printing the whole thing in colour (as would be necessary with a Judge Dredd Case Files book) would probably be quite a bit more expensive. This is one of the reasons I think it probably won't happen. I for one would be happy to pay a few quid extra but possibly for some it would seem like a few quid too much.

Going by the pricing, Fatties and Button Man are both US volumes. Volgan War 3 is, I assume, the continuation of that series in paperback.

Yes, Case Files 6 is also listed for next year, which is obviously another US release.

The cover for Fatties is up if anyone wants to look at it.

From the CBR Pat Mills interview.

Flesh - Badlands - Pat Mills James McKay, Spring 2013

In  fact I might was well just quote it.

Quote
"Defoe" is the next adventure concludes the first story arc with Defoe facing victory or defeat at the hands of the Zombies and a question mark over his future.

In "Greysuit," he returns and -- once more brainwashed -- is ordered to kill a cop. A hero who refuses to be corrupted by the system

After the current "ABC Warriors" story we will do another one covering another missing section in the Warriors' history

"Savage" is the final battle for the Liberation of London and -- for the first time -- we see Volgans as human beings

Also hints that he'd like to do more Visible Man. Come on Pat you know its gonna be worth it.

Yes. It's like being stuck in some weird Strontium Dog-style time trap, whereby we can see escape in sight (Casefiles 21, come unto us!) but feel as we're treading through treacle trying desperately to reach it.

In fairness, for all those of you who (quite understandably) deserted in the 90s, the Casefiles release schedule has created a pretty accurate summation of what it felt like in the middle of that decade - as if we were never going to escape the horror, except possibly by expiring in protest.

Title: Re: Forthcoming Thrills!
Post by: Greg M. on 09 November, 2012, 09:12:13 pm
I'm pretty sure it won't be in 20. Naff, though? Can't agree. I'm not going to proclaim it amazing, but it has a smashing build-up and some great bits, and compared to some of the dross that will be in 20 (sad to say, 20 will contain the worst material the Casefiles have ever had to contend with, along with, ironically, a fragment of the best in the form of 'Bury My Knee...'), it flamin' well shines. 'Wilderlands' is particularly interesting as a sort of testing ground for concepts Wagner will later run with (particularly Castillo as the ur-De Marco.) It has a certain allure as a transitional phase in 'Judge Dredd's history - I am always fascinated by 'cusp' creativity, i.e, books / comics / records that straddle the threshold of old and new directions.

Well, if it was- which it wont be- that would be enough to count me out of buying any more. The whole point of giving shelfspace to these dreadful nineties reprints is to maintain the collection with an eye to one day having something approaching a 'complete' run on the shelves. I would not be interested in wasting shelf space on a series that would not even get back to the good stuff until im approaching 50 and which would see no chance of catching up with the current run until way past my death.
Im sure there's a reason for this particular abberation- just as im waiting for someone to say its a mistake and 20 is out in feb.

Well, I dunno. I'm still waiting for volume 3 of The VC's, which has appeared on the schedule and then been canceled at least twice. Vol 2 came out 3-and-a-half years ago now and considering the first two seem to have sold out long ago (try getting hold of a copy of either), presumably there must be enough demand to justify a print run of the third. Incompleteness annoys me. I recently moved my 'Spawn Collection' volumes off my main bookshelves to a place out of sight because they pissed me off every time I looked that them. Still can't believe Image just decided to cancel the line a mere two volumes short of closing the gap with the Armageddon Collection. It makes me mad. Not to mention sad.

Not strictely speaking IMAGE's fault.Todd McFarlane controls all aspects of his property, including what trades to collect and publish. Image the publisher can't make that call. And as an Image founder/board member, McFarlane has the right to publish ANYTHING regardless of sales predictions/outcomes (because he has a stake in the company). So McFarlane made the call, don't blame the publisher.

That rather conflicts with the explanation Image gave on their forums at the time which stated that it was about consistency of format and visual branding across their line of graphic novels. I followed it quite closely as I had a personal interest. I'm NOT about to get into an argument about it though because I have better things to do than dig around for several-years-old posts on other forums I don't even contribute to anymore.

P.S. I'm not doubting you're correct about McFarlane having control, but I'm guessing in this case that Image told him what they wanted to do and he gave the go-ahead.

The synopsis for Origins North American reprint:





MARCH 2013: JUDGE DREDD: ORIGINS

ISBN: 9781781080993 US $19.99/Canada $22.99

The story that changed everything. When Judge Dredd co-creator John Wagner decided to tell Dredd’s origin story, fans had no idea what was in store. The first Chief Judge Fargo’s severed hand is delivered to the Grand Hall of Justice with a ransom note and Judge Dredd has to travel with his team into the Cursed Earth in an attempt to recover the Judge Father’s body and discover the culprits. This trip becomes more than just a journey across America - this is a journey that delves into both the past and the history of the Judges and Mega-City One itself!

Yup, that's a US book, judging by the price tag ending in .24. Odd cover, too, but then there's only one Simpson cover from the era (http://www.2000ad.org/functions/cover.php?choice=687&Comic=2000ad). Personally, I always liked Oli Frey's go at the character (http://www.2000ad.org/functions/cover.php?Comic=scans&choice=774). Such a pity he didn't do more for 2000 AD. (I heavily reworked that art (http://www.zzap64.co.uk/cgi-bin/displaypage.pl?issue=107&page=001&thumbstart=1&magazine=zzap&check=1) when we did a new issue of Zzap!64, way back in 2002.)

All I can really remember from reading Friday at the time is being generally confused as to why Rogue Trooper wasn't Rogue Trooper anymore.

Anyway I'll buy this regardless and give it another shot.

The War Machine was a reboot, based on the original, but in a different universe. It was subsequently smashed into the original series continuity with all the finesse of a gorilla wielding a mallet, also ignoring the nicely written and suitable ending to The Hit, which annoyed me a bit.

While I was never particularly a fan of Rogue Trooper anyway it really lost its way after the Traitor General storyline was resolved. As ever it did though it always had great art and have to be honest I did quite like the early parts of 'The Hit'.

War Machine was much needed when it arrived, assuming that Rogue wasn't to be left alone altogether.

I'm dubious about the necessity to throw away all the existing continuity to give new life to a strip which has gone downhill. There are other ways, something new can always be thrown into the mix. However maybe I'm wrong in this case... Since I just got a copy of Tales of Nu Earth Vol. 3 which contains most of the later 'original Rogue series' stuff and I'll be reading it shortly (for the first time since the original progs came out), I suppose I'll soon find out.

This list is pure speculation, note. However, the book details state Hairsine is one of the artists, which means the strips run from at least Something Wicked through to Lawless. It would make logical sense for that 'era' of Anderson to be dealt with in its entirety by also including Horror Story and Semper VI. A subsequent volume would then kick off with Half-Life, from 2004 (Semper VI being from 1999). This calculation results in 297 strip pages (according to Barney), which seems a touch heavy if the book is 304pp, and would also suggest the two annual stories I don't think have yet been collected would have to wait for the next volume.

Meg 2.74 – 2.80, Something Wicked (Mar ’95): 52

It's a recoloured version of Bolland's cover for volume one of Judge Dredd's Crime Files (http://media.comicvine.com/uploads/1/11307/251172-19998-119447-1-judge-dredd-s-crime_super.jpg), a late Eighties Fleetway forerunner of The Restricted Files. I think the whimsical wee monster in question is supposed to refer to the much nastier ripperjacks in Wagner, Grant and Higgins's Last of the Bad Guys (from the 1988 Judge Dredd annual), but you're right that the image would work much better without it.

The IDW cover is definitely not Bolland; all his computer coloured work has layer upon layer of eggshell textures and a distinctive palette. I haven't checked his fantastically cranky blog for a while, but if he hasn't seen this image already the email I'm about to send him will produce something that makes his berating of Erró Gudmundur, the Icelandic fine artist who 'appropriated' his Tank Girl cover (http://www.bleedingcool.com/2010/05/20/brian-bolland-takes-on-erro-and-wins/), look like a pleasant chat between old friends.

More like 'CR'. Looking at the belt rendering I'd say Mr Cliff Robinson had some hand in this. Maybe extending the artwork...?

The cropping of the image is the same as on the cover of the Crime File (http://media.comicvine.com/uploads/1/11307/251172-19998-119447-1-judge-dredd-s-crime_large.jpg) it originally adorned, and the colourist on IDW's books is one Charlie Kirchoff.

The IDW cover is definitely not Bolland; all his computer coloured work has layer upon layer of eggshell textures and a distinctive palette. I haven't checked his fantastically cranky blog for a while, but if he hasn't seen this image already the email I'm about to send him will produce something that makes his berating of Erró Gudmundur, the Icelandic fine artist who 'appropriated' his Tank Girl cover (http://www.bleedingcool.com/2010/05/20/brian-bolland-takes-on-erro-and-wins/), look like a pleasant chat between old friends.

If Bolland took umbrage at John Higgins's decent colour work on The Killing Joke, god knows what he'll make of this.

God, I bet you were popular at school. For the record, Brian has not only seen and approved the cover but he's also written an introduction for the book. This is nothing like the incident you mention (which was a case of plagiarism) and your comments are highly insulting to IDW, everyone at 2000 AD, and Brian himself.

I would like an apology to all concerned, please.

Post by: IndigoPrime on 10 December, 2012, 11:37:28 am
On Anderson, I guess I wasn't too far off with my estimate, then. It's a pity the book won't quite wrap up 'old' Anderson (i.e. all the stuff before the current Meg era), but the flip side of that is a more complete set of strips from annuals, which I wasn't expecting, so: hurrah!

Crusade: not read that in years, but I recall it being OK. Still, most of the problems I've had with Anderson have been catastrophic events not remotely referred to in Dredd, and so whereas at one time the strips were clearly heavily linked, they ended up feeling like two entirely separate continuities. On their own, however, the run in my recollection varied from readable to very good indeed, and the 'Satan' stuff (included in the upcoming book) was when I read it a genuinely hard-hitting story with some great character work (including a typically glacial Dredd shift in attitude towards Anderson, which felt very right and also similar to how he was in the recent film).

If you felt insulted personally or professionally by anything in that post, Michael, I apologise - but the comparison to the Gudmundur incident you mention was made with reference to the imagined scale of Bolland's reaction, not the act of repurposing the artwork. Bolland actually replied to my email, confirming that he'd been involved in the production of the book; and since Bolland does not disapprove of Kirchoff's colouring, my conjecture regarding the scale of his reaction has no more validity than my speculation on the nature of his reaction.

It's not really about me at all - and I'm afraid Jim's right, that's a very mealy mouthed 'apology' for your actions, which are not those of someone keen to support 2000 AD and the wider brand. For reasons I can only imagine, you took it upon yourself to run off and tell tales to teacher without considering for a second that IDW had got this covered.

Blimey, what a to-do.  I'm afraid I read Sauchie's apology/clarification entirely differently - to me it was a simple admission of being wrong, in itself a rarity on the internet. 

I'm not sure why he has to apologise for communicating his mistaken concerns to Bolland, or why he has to take it as fact that IDW would automatically do things properly with regard to creators (although they obviously did) - the US comics industry isn't exactly known for it, so I think a bit of wary scepticism is, in gereal, justified. If Bolland hadn't been involved, he was well within his rights to tell him, and if he had been consulted (as he was), then what harm?  He got a correction from the horse's mouth, and reported it here. 

Does this really justify an 'indefinite warning' for a contributor who is consistently supportive of 2000AD and its creators, as well as generally being amusing and informed?

And BTW, I love that cover, the little flying thing in particular makes it Dredd and not FuturoFascist No. 35.

Id love to see those banned episodes reprinted, its frustrating as hell that they havent/never will be. 
Select panels have appeared though in various books over the years - Mega History, Titan reprints etc, and recently the covers were shown in the Art of Judge Dredd book, albeit censored.


(And looking at one of the pages of original art i own, it would appear that a bit of self-censoreship was in effect prior to release. Several of the company logo's have been partly obscured).

Has Rebellion ever release an offical line in regards to these strips?
Title: Re: Forthcoming Thrills!
Post by: Max Headroom on 26 December, 2012, 08:31:24 pm
Couldn't Rebellion at least try and talk to the respective wounded parties after all this time about the possibility of getting the banned stories back in print, as it might not be quite such an issue now. Perhaps some kind of financial incentive might persuade them that they really are satire and not that harmful. I think it would be worth a go, as all real Judge Dredd fans would like to see them back.

This is utterly silly and childish, but I've always kinda liked the fact (even when I didn't own them) that there were these 'secret' super episodes that you could get hold of if you were a 'real' fan BUT didn't affect the enjoyment of the story if you'd got the story in trade or whatever.

I tracked them about 3 or 4 years ago now (I think) and they cropped up fairly regularly back then on eBay, normally one or more copies available at in any one week (does take some of the thrill out of collecting!)

Well since its been discussed here and I've not bought it so its not a review, so I'll put this here. I was waiting to flick through the Complete Bolland before ordering it and I'm really glad I did. Had a quick look at a copy in my local Forbidden Planet and its worth noting it was only a quick look BUT I wasn't too impressed.

I was hoping this would be like the IDW Dave Gibbons Doctor Who collection which looked lovely but its not. No colour that I could see, even the pages that were originally in colour are black and white. The line work wasn't crisp at all and looked like the reproduction in the Case Files (not saying it is, just looks like) and over all it wasn't what I expected. Shame but it looks like I'll be passing this one.

My problem is less about fingerprint, and more about curling in moderate humidity. My copies of Zombo and Anderson Crime Files are warped from sitting on my shelf. I think it might be because S&S doesn't coat the inside cover stock like Rebellion does. Or its just lighter paper stock to what Rebellion uses in general.

Okay just stumbled across this. Over at The Beat they're running a feature with creators rounding up the year and looking ahead to 2013. Simon Fraser is on there and in answer to the question what projects is he currently working on he says (amongst others)

Rocket De La Revolucion , written by Monty Nero for 2000AD

Done a quick search and Monty Nero (made up name!) is a newish writer (from what I can see) doing some stuff for CLint after apparently being discovered at Kapow (his Mum must be chuffed)... so nowt to go on there! Anyway something new to look forward to.

Great to see more Wagner Dredd getting out there in any case!

Hey. Looks like Tharg may have taken my advice and started putting together issue previews containing the first page of each strip. (http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=preview&id=14770)

I hope we get one of these every week! I need them desperately for promoting the book.

That can ONLY be a smart move!

I've detected a somewhat sniffy attitude towards 2000AD among some of the 'diehard' comics fans I'm friendly with. It seems like, for the most part, they just aren't familiar with the material, or judge everything on the merits of early '80s strips. Weird.

Maybe access to a regular glimpse of some contemporary stuff will turn a few heads. I know at least one guy stateside who's gone picking up all the Dredd stuff he can since the movie.

Wow what an interesting choice. I assume that Meltdown Man did well enough that the same names on the cover is hoped to draw an audience? That'd make sense, but for me one of the weakest strip from the Prog ever and there's better stuff by far out there still awaiting. Mine not to reason why and all that...

Woah there!  :) As soon as I saw this news in Tharg's Space Spam I had a similar thought, but then I realised I'd like to buy it.

Mean Team was really two separate strips. The earliest parts, where they escape from the arena, are bloody good. I remember being genuinely excited by it when I was a kid. The later stuff, when they get to Earth and it all gets a bit looser, wasn't so good, IMO. The sudden death of the robot was particularly poor, I felt, although the plot meant it was needed. Of course, Belardinelli art is a massive bonus.

I've no idea how this book will sell but I say full marks to the House of Tharg for having a go.

Tharg has clearly renewed his love affair with the work of Belardinelli in the last few years, as evidenced by the fantastic collections of his stories Rebellion have put out. More power to the Mighty One's verdant elbow on this, say I! I will be getting this principally to have all of the much-maligned 'Survivor' in one place: I am aware it is not highly regarded, but I remember enjoying it.

So it would be reasonably safe to assume the second DoC trade is scheduled for before that? Likewise Tharg's reveal of a September release of ABC Warriors: Return to Earth would suggest the release of Volgan War 4 (paperback) comes between that and the release of #3 in June.

Okay with an increased admiration for Radiator (and with his okay), I've tried to update the sunmmary. Chuff me its harder than it loks. A host of caveats. This is based solely on the following:

the new Dark Judges saga with Greg Staples.

This is on the list as 'Dark Judgement', though I think the title is now 'Dark Justice'.

Indigo Prime (I think) seems to base the assumption on the price?
If it doesn't end in .99 or .00 on Amazon, it's a US edition. Some might be restickered for UK sale, however, such as the reprint of the first Nikolai Dante book.

Indigo Prime is a UK book. As I said, we'll be sending out press releases detailing all our UK and North American GNs soon, so that should clear things up.

Excellent. Whilst we’ve got you there Molch-R will Diamond continue distributing the S& S editions for us outside of the US?

The reason for asking is that All Star Future Shocks has never been solicited by Diamond Which seemed a touch odd considering as one would imagine that Gaiman’s name alone would be a licence to print money in the Direct Market.

Here's hoping it deals explicitly with the ghostly repercussions of 350 million violent deaths in 'Day of Chaos', in a The Inspectre stylee.  And here's expecting that it does not (although that panel with Beeny (?) suggests it may well.  Oh I'm so confused).

Hard to say these days. I can't really reconcile the character we saw in Day of Chaos with the character as she was in her first few years of stories. People don't generally spontaneously change race (although Karyn set a precedent).

I always assumed they changed Beeny's skin tone because some of the subtlety of the colouring was lost in the switch from Colin MacNeil's painted art to Chris Blythe's colours, so it was probably deemed better to swing further in the direction of darker colouring than have her end up looking like just another white girl the way she did in Tour of Duty.  (Also, the similar hairstyles made it a bit hard to distinguish her from Hershey at times, so making her more visually distinct once she became a recurring character wasn't a bad idea.)

Via the ever wonderful ECBT 2000ad Molch-R's promised list of 2000ad releases for 2013.

Some nice surprises there. Especially, I'm guessing, the fact that there are two Case Files this year after the uproar that the previously slow release of #20. All is right with the world again... actually I'm going to have to keep an eye on these as soon they'll get to the point I stopped getting the Meg...

I'll update the list now this is in, unless Radiator wants to take over the helm back?

From the sound of it, it'll be be a collection of one-offs and short run strips. Most specifically it appears to reprint XTNCT in paperback for the first time.

Not too bad, its good that two books of the Dredd Case Files are seeing release before the end of the year but three would have been better.

Also with the exception of Mean Team there is a distinct lack of old school 2000AD thrills this year, has the well run dry on these now?

Suggestions for next year – Red Seas Case Files, Sin Dex Case Files, The VC’s Volume 3.

Any chance of a US S&S 2013 release schedule?

Red Seas Case Files
I'd love to see that, but given that the series has been rebooted once already (from Rebellion's old hardbacks to the standard softback) and never got past an initial volume, I can't imagine it's at the top of the 'absolute priority' list.

As for the line-up, it looks strong. Great also to see some volumes not only coming back into print but also being spruced up a little.

Thx for the list, very handy.

But i have a format question about Dredd Origins: There is any difference between the Rebellion release we have now on stock and the American one?. Everyplace i see the american version, it states it has 192 pages, while the Rebellion one says it has 160 pages.

I answer myself: the 2000ad store page says 192. The 160 is an error from Amazon. So it's the same deal. :-[

My first thoughts ware, what a lovely drawing by Henry Flint and brilliant logo design, & then realized it Dave Gibbons & Will Simpson first outing of friday that is been reprinted and was wondering why is will Simpsons work been used on the cover as he is the artist of all the book?

Would this be a temporary cover till it ships or something like that?

While I love Simpson's work on War Machine (and Dredd of that period), I'm not sure that those two lovely covers have aged very well. The Flint one is much more modern-looking, and frankly more immediately striking.

I know exactly what you mean, but the scan quality of those images doesn't do the originals justice. Boost the colour contrast and get Parr to slap a bit of bold typography across them diagonally (semantic shorthand for dynamism) and the jobs a good un. Failing that, the semi-divine Chris Weston (http://images.comiccollectorlive.com/covers/637/63702c7f-5173-4528-8e7e-26f2888fb4d7.jpg)'s an acceptable compromise. Or, failing that, how about Chris Weston (http://www.2000ad.org/functions/cover.php?choice=880&Comic=2000ad)?

Both Weston and Flint worked on that wayward period of the character's history, but seeing the latter's take on the character again just reminds me of how my introduction to his art was during the period where I was aware that the strip had drifted too far from either its original premise and lost the impetus of the Gibbons reboot to ever really come back convincingly. The pointless Mark Millar story where Friday shaved his 'do back into a Travis Bickle mohawk was worth it just to witness the precise moment where Weston transformed from the plucky trier of yesteryear into the powerhouse we know him as today, and I would have thought he was the natural pick for this collection.

The cover for the IDW Ezquerra collection has been updated.  This one has a solid white background, in keeping with the look of the Bolland & Kennedy volumes.  Ezquerra fans may (or may not) be pleased to note the Dredd image includes Ezquerra's signature dashed outline.

(http://i1180.photobucket.com/albums/x418/Dash_Decent/Dredd_Ez_zps3fd71f5b.jpg)

You can get a better look at the cover and browse some of the pages at Amazon UK, courtesy of their "Look inside" feature.  (Click here!) (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Judge-Dredd-Carlos-Ezquerra-Stories/dp/1613775504/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1362107125&sr=1-1)

Apart from the covers gallery, the story line up appears to be:

That's 236 pages devoted to stories.

The classic "Um - synthi sausage?" cover is reproduced (in b&w) and the Rico/Dredd image that mirrors the classic "Who's gonna mess with us" Alpha/Dredd is there too, though sadly the Alpha/Dredd is (as far as can be seen) not.  While not a surprise - this being a Dredd volume - it would be spectacular to see the two pictures reproduced side by side in a quality oversized book like this one.

Post by: TordelBack on 08 March, 2013, 10:09:52 am
Yeah, exciting stuff!  I love Gallagher, and I love Aquila, but I'd be intrigued to see an artist so completely different in approach as Goddard take a spin.  Fascinating to see his realism applied to an historical fantasy, and Goddard's work also colours-up a treat (if you like that sort of thing).  Straying into hyperbole for a mo, it'd be like Fabry taking over from Bellardinelli all over again!



EDIT: And just in case that last remark might be misinterpreted by the negative-of-mind, Bellardinelli and Fabry's work on Slaine are two of my personal highlights from the whole history of comics.

The Extreme Edition is missing the third series, Survivor. It only ran for six progs though so it's shorter than the first two.

Cons: Yeah, what Colin said. Kinda miss reprisents what is in the GN.

Here's the description of "Mutants in Mega-City One" from http://books.simonandschuster.com/Judge-Dredd-Mutants-in-Mega-City-One/Warren-Ellis/9781781081679 :

"MUTIES OUT! The great Atomic Wars of 2070 created a population of mutants who, due in part to their bizarre (and in most cases grotesque) deformities, have been denied citizenship in Mega-City One. Rejected by the prejudiced ‘norms’ and forcibly kept away from the city by the Judges, the mutants have had no choice but to live in the vast, radioactive wasteland known as the ‘Cursed Earth’. Harboring resentment and hatred against those that have exiled them, bands of mutants now prey on those that stray from behind the city walls – and sometimes even launch all-out attacks in a bid to gain entry to the Big Meg! This action-packed collection features classic encounters between Judge Dredd and mutantkind! Writers – John Wagner, Alan Grant, Al Ewing, Michael Carroll Artists – Carlos Ezquerra, John Higgins, Will Simpson, Chris Weston, Duncan Fegredo, Colin McNeil, Simon Fraser, Ian Gibson, John Burns, John Ridgway, Paul Marshall & Bryan Talbot. Features the never-before reprinted bonus story, Feed Me by Warren Ellis and Sean Phillips"

Also: Amazon U.S. indicates that there are Kindle editions of "The Pit" and Case Files 03 out today!

Happened to see Patrick's Aquila art at Cardiff and it was fantastic. He was trying really hard to make it as consistent with what's already been established. Pat mentioned he'd be showing it to Leigh who was sitting a few seats down from him at the con to get his feedback. Good to see art droids cooperating like this. I'm sure it'll rock.

Title: Re: Forthcoming Thrills!
Post by: The Adventurer on 26 March, 2013, 06:13:59 am
Oh! NICE! I've been wait for more digital trade support!

Think I'll check out Case Files 1 to check out the reproduction quality (Rebellion seems to be erroring on the side of 'High res, not THAT high res' for their Prog and Meg files. Which is kind of disappointing (compression artifacts are THE DEVIL) ComiXology (at least the HD ones) comics have no compression at all, so the art as presented is amazing at any scale. Rebellion could do with upping their game in this area IMO.

Not... Not sure why I just went on that mini-rant there. Probably because I'm slightly leery of buying the digital trades only to be greeted with compression artifacts? Which in turn would make me less likely to buy more over time? Which in further turn means fewer moneys for Rebellion from me?

Let me put it this way, If I was sure I was getting the highest resolution possible I would rebuy every trade I currently own in print, digitally.

I haven't read these stories but I would imagine you could but you mightn't enjoy it as much as die-hard Sláine/Pat Mill fans. If you haven't read Sláine before, I would start right from the start - Warrior's Dawn, the vast majority of people agree the best Sláine stories are the early ones.

One of the few later Slaine stories I haven't read yet. I hear it's not so good. Not as good as the earlier stories. So I wouldn't recommend it to a newcomer.

Grail War has the covers from 1034, 1037, 1091, 1095. The Battle of Clontarf is in colour, so I guess that's why it wasn't included in Time Killer (too expensive to print mostly in black and white and just a few colour pages at the end).

The Battle of Clontarf differs from the Clontarf battle sequence in Time Killer as it has Sláine fighting with different weapons.

Mean Team has Mean Team, Return of the Mean Team and Survivor. Prog covers 437, 526, 532 and 639 and Extreme Edition cover 25 are included (all greyscale) along with Star Scans from 435, 643, 660 and a Star Scan of Massimo Belardinelli from 295.

Mean Team was a bit disjointed wasnt it, I enjoyed the first part, simple enough story. The second was all over the place, and Survivor I recall really enjoying, looking forward to reading again.
As for Slaine, it needs to be read in order, the end of the Horned God is for me the end of the story. Anything after that is a bonus, some of it great, some not so good.

Wagners writing, so I expect it to be less tepid than the last few Grant series with the character.

I wonder if Anderson's reaction to Dredd in The pits is any indication of what to come? Her thoughts of "Man is a machine producing shit" followed by that look on her face, I wonder if she's losing her faith in humanity (just as she did with the justice system itself). If handled as well as Origins, ToD and DoC then I can't seriously wait what's in store for PJ Maybe, Death, Dark Judges, Anderson and Dredd :D

...And very nearly 'Ichabod Azrael', not to mention 'Caballistics'. I really wish someone at the books department would talk to the script droids now and again to ask how many books are planned. 'A trilogy, you say? Well, it would make sense for us to wait for all three books to be out before collecting them, eh?'

With the greatest of respect, Keith Richardson DOES - in the cases of Azrael, Ten-Seconders and Insurrection the writers' decision to continue the series was made AFTER the books had been scheduled and solicited. Having talked to Dan he didn't originally intend to continue Insurrection past Book Two!

Time to start introducing the writers to THE CUPBOARD. (i.e. You and/or Keith could lock Rennie in a cupboard until he produces enough Cabs material for a third trade. Given how freelance contracts are for writers these days, I imagine you'll be fine. I'm pretty sure I've done research on this.)

I'm sure I've seen an interview with Rob Williams though where he states that there always was a third series of the Ten Seconders planned but that it would be a while?  I think it has actually been about a 4 year gap!

Most people appreciate the difficulty in deciding what to release as a GN from the 2000ad stable as there is always the possibility that they will return, even deceased characters don't stay that way!

It does leave a fan with a quandry though - buy the current release knowing it will not be complete and hope there will be another release later on with the new story or wait for a new complete collection.  If the Ten Seconders only have one more story what's the likelihood of another GN with just that in?  Then again, how long would it be before we see a complete collection?

I wouldn't bet on that.  But the first book is certainly more coherent than the last.  Not my favourite Mills.

Is it ridiculous that I simply cannot wait to see this new Slaine stuff?  Mills tailors his work to an artist's strengths so meticulously that I'm imagining a complete shift to the kind of character-centric moody horror material Davis truly shines on.  I've been reading and re-reading and thinking about Slaine a lot lately, and it is a really remarkable achievement, even later stuff I've dismissed in the past has angles and attractions I never suspected.

Black Siddha? I read Book 3 when it ran in the Meg, and was mighty confused. Maybe starting at the beginning will be a better experience.

Oh, 1 and 2 are much better. I was a big fan of that strip but the wheels really came of in book 3 and killed just about all my interest (as it did for most people, I suspect, given it never returned after that). There were unavoidable behind-the-scenes issues that can't have helped - the strip was written and drawn to fit the Meg's bumper format, but about two episodes in the budget was slashed and the page count dropped dramatically; so the remaining Siddha episodes were suddenly several pages too long. This meant that monthly 'episodes' would end several pages before their planned cliff-hangers, sometimes mid-scene, with other cliffhangers appearing in the middle of other 'episodes.' Small wonder it stopped making much sense.

Book 1 is the best by a long way - classic Mills, classic 2000AD. The image of Ganesh crushed behind the wheel of a car, coffee in one hand, doughnut in another, 'disguised' in a trenchcoat and fedora, is one that's stayed with me in the same way as Henry Flint's Face-eating Fruit.

Very good news.
I was afraid we'd lost Elson completely to Marvel.

Looking forward to this.
I regrettably hope Abnett wraps it up with this series too. Elson's a prolific artist stateside now, and there's always a risk he won't come back again.

Excellent news. Kingdom is one of the few 'modern' 2000 AD thrills that's right at the top of my all-time list. It's a cracking read. (As for wrapping it up, I can see the logic, but I'd sooner it just carries on, even if sporadically.)

Oh that is wonderful news, wonderful. As Ming alludes to you can imagine Mr Abnett having a field day with the eminently quotable Zulu.

I'm also reluctantly inclined to agree with Link Prime, if Mr Elson does feel US work is pulling too strong and if he feels he'd struggle to continue it would be good if an ending was planned. Of course fingers crossed he's got this done with all his US case load, so if we have to wait we have to wait, but I'm not keen on it being left open ended, it deserves better, or the strip being passed to another artist, though the best alternatives have been discussed here already.

Ta as always.
Title: Re: Forthcoming Thrills!
Post by: IndigoPrime on 14 June, 2013, 02:12:38 pm
It's more or less a 50/50 split. The 2000 AD stuff isn't much cop, but the Meg stuff is Wagner/Rennie and includes one of the best Dredd shorts of them all, plus McMahon's return.

Just checked Barney and the next ones should be a return to form—Wilderlands and the conspiracy arc.

I hope Richard won't mind me saying, but we 'spoke' briefly on Facebook and he mentioned that Kingdom is one of his favourite jobs, so I think Richard will find time as long as Dan has stories to write, even if that means that the stories are further apart than we would ideally like…

Post by: radiator on 14 June, 2013, 02:19:31 pm
It's a mixed bag, but I'd say you'd mostly find it carries on in that vein. It has some stories such as Book of the Dead and Frankenstein Division that are widely held to be among the worst Dredd strips of all time (I don't think I've ever fully read either of them so can't comment) - but it also has the excellent Giant by Wagner and Gibson, the divisive (read: excellent if you have any taste) Howler by Wagner & McMahon and Bury My Knee at Wounded Heart - generally considered of of the very best Dredd one-offs ever published.

I think volumes 22-24 will see an upswing in quality as we get into stuff like Tenth Planet, Wilderlands and The Three Amigos (I think Tenth Planet is scheduled for CF21, with Wilderlands in CF22...?), but hampered slightly by some pretty dodgy Megazine material, but the books that cover the 1997-2000 (Case Files 25/26/27?) period are going to be bloody brilliant, as Wagner was writing Dredd pretty much single-handedly in the prog and Meg for a few years, and a good deal of the stories from that period have never been reprinted.

I had rather anticipated CF20 being the absolute nadir of the Case Files (and said as much in my Amazon review for 19), but I now think 19 may turn out to hold that crown after all. I had forgotten just how bad 'Inferno' was - I'd been thinking of it as almost passable, but unless re-reads of the Morrison/Millar atrocities in CF20 prove otherwise, I think 'Inferno' has a fair shot at being called the worst script Dredd ever had. CF20 will be the most schizophrenic volume imaginable: as radiator says, the combo of Howler, Giant and Bury My Knee... is blisteringly superb - not just good, but each, in their very different ways, some of the best Dredd possible.

You poor deluded fool.  Inferno is awful in its wilful mindlessness, but there's a lot worse to come.  Things so bad that I stopped buying the prog entirely because of them.  On the plus side, it means that the back end of CF20 and the next few volumes are going to be largely new to me. 
Title: Re: Forthcoming Thrills!
Post by: radiator on 14 June, 2013, 08:05:12 pm
Are we talking 'Sonny Steelgrave'? I don't think I've read much of that.

Inferno is drawn by Ezquerra when he was doing his gorgeous watercolour and magic marker hand-coloured stuff, so is automatically kinda awesome. It's poorly written and often illogical, but it's at least coherent.

Don't get me wrong, I remember thinking Frankenstein Division was awful at the time, but I've developed a more benevolent attitude to the work of young Mark Millar these days (it was utter tosh, of course, but hell, he was barely out of his teens and had been brought up on a diet of Superman - he was so out of both his depth and element in the prog.) As such, his co-authorship of that era's stinkers somehow helps alleviate the stigma and makes me look more sympathetically on their spectacular rubbishness - whereas the far more talented and experienced Morrison writing solo doesn't get that kind of pass.

A fair point.  Also, in any media I've seen Millar comes across as a such a remarkably nice guy that it's really quite hard to maintain the hot flame of hatred I've nurtured, lo these 20 years.  But I struggle on.

A  lot of the really bad scripts from that time had the saving grace of having some great art, Carlos as noted above, and Ron Smith did some nice colour work on a Sonny Steelgrave, so all might not be lost. Frankenstein Division had utterly glorious art, just look at the art, do pay no heed to the lettering!

What Greg M said.

Great art, shame about the scripts. But there is some Wagner gold among the dross, and I think CF20 is well worth picking up. Then from CF21 on the quality is right back to a high standard, which I hope will encourage Rebellion to pick up the pace for releases -- I assume they only slowed down because of the dip in quality after Necropolis finished.

Prog 1850's lineup revealed...


Stunning sci-fi action from the UK's number one anthology comic, featuring some of the best writers and artists in the business! The roster of stories wraps up on Progs 1848 and 1849 with Slaine, The Ten-Seconders, and Age of the Wolf all coming to a close and making way for a brand-new line-up in Prog 1850 - dinosaur savagery as the cowboys of Trans-Time face a new threat in 'Flesh: Badlanders'; Wren's journey across the wheel of worlds takes a dramatic turn when civil war breaks out in 'Brass Sun: The Diamond Age'; humanity battles the space invaders once again in the second series of 'Damnation Station'; and soulless killer Aquila walks the streets of Rome in 'Where All Roads Lead' Plus more zero-tolerance law enforcement with Judge Dredd!

They can never actually catch up to the present (certainly not at the current publication rate), but this does conversely mean they can never actually run out of material unless the prog comes to an end - and the plan seems to be to publish them indefinately.

Molcher or Keith already confirmed some time ago it's going to be printed as it appeared in the prog. Personally I hope it includes the relevant build-up strips; Bullet to King Four is an absolute must, at the very least, and The Bean Counter and Rich Cabaret introduce Maitland ready for her role in Cold Deck. (Family Man isn't strictly necessary but would be nice, as it's Bachmann's only other apperance). The collection's going to be missing something otherwise.

Me too, and the page count suggests it probably will.

The Ro-Busters page count, on the other hand... 112? When the phonebook is 336? If that's correct I suspect this will be a selection of stories carefully cherry-picked for a US audience, giving dissproportionate prominence to the Dave Gibbons and Alan Moore material. The subtitle certainly leaves the door open for a second, concluding book - 'Ro-Busters: The Rise and Fall of Ro-Jaws and Hammerstein.'

The Art of Sean Phillips
Hardcover, 312 pages, Dynamite Entertainment, 12th November 2013

The Amazon "Look Inside" feature shows it has separate chapters on Crisis and 2000AD and lets you see some of the art (Dredd, Armitage, Slaine, Chopper etc).

Blurb:
The Art of Sean Phillips is a lavish, career-spanning retrospective of the acclaimed artist behind Criminal, Sleeper, Incognito, and Fatale. Sean has personally selected the very best, most interesting examples of his art for inclusion, from comic strips assembled with childhood friends in his bedroom, through his work for British girls' comics and 2000AD, to his role as a key artist in the early years of Vertigo, through his superhero work for Marvel, DC, and WildStorm, and finally from his creator-owned series with Ed Brubaker. Also, the renowned artist has been extensively interviewed, along with many of his key collaborators, for the book's in-depth commentary on his work and career.

Flesh is obnoxious because it has all the ingredients to be amazing (cowboys, dinosaurs, artist, violence), but falls flat on its face. In many respects it has the same problems I have with Defoe. To many characters, unclear motivations, and sudden weirdness for weirdness's sake without logical progression.

But I'm actually enjoying Defoe right now (it helps when there are only 3 or 4 characters, and the characters actually seem to have motivation). So anything is possible.

That and a frequently troubling attitude towards women, and that device Mills uses all the time to introduce a gang of some kind that quite often then gets killed off within a few pages. Flesh should be a standout 2000 AD strip. As it is, I just find it frustrating.

When someone first pointed out that trope of his it started to drive me crazy. Not just a team - but weaponry - like seven panels of "this missile is the TANK-SHREDDER - it's shot into the MAIN GUN and then EXPLODES filling the vehicle full of TWISTED METAL!"

And then like, we never see that weapon being used beyond that. Or hear about it ever again.

Post by: AlexF on 26 July, 2013, 12:22:25 pm
I'm really torn about Mills's tendency to do that. On the one hand, some of the throwaway characters and weapons he comes up with (in conjunction with his artists, obv.) are way cool, and I'd love to see them reappear and get used more often. On the other hand, I really respect and appreciate the creativity and bloody-mindedness of his drive to create new concepts all the damn time, and ignore old ones.

As a child, each 5-page epsiode of Mills and O'Neill Nemesis was like a self-contained Universe of delight - and if I'd never read a Prog before, I imagine I'd feel much the same with new episodes of Flesh and Defoe. They can be somewhat unsatisfying as long-form stories, but they excel in the moment, for the most part.

The problem I have with this Mills trope is that it looks like the comic-book form of a list or outline. Do we really need that kind of introduction/roll call? Aren't there smarter ways to do this? It worked quite nicely with the Shadow Warriors, but he uses the device far too often.

Pat Mills can do what the hell he likes! It's a bit hit and miss sometimes, but that's only to be expected when you're staying creative and not just playing it safe. Sure, Flesh has some dodgy moments, but Savage has got to be one of the best things to ever appear in the Prog. And I know which one of those 10 year old me would have preferred...

Yeah, every prog is someone's first. IMHO there has to be stuff for people to pick up and enjoy without reference to decades of history or even last week's prog. And tooth is such a diverse anthology that this can sit happily alongside more sophisticated ongoing stories.

Future Shocks do this, I love 'em, but I also thought Abnett and Burns recent Sin Dex was a masterclass in how to write episodes you can enjoy and understand fully both long form or as single episodes. Writer's used to do this all the time, little unobtrusive conversational recaps at the start of each ep, and when it's done well it entertaining and fun. When's it's just a caption box rehash of the story so far - less cool.

Barney plus some dodgy mental arithmetic suggests Lord of Beasts (the all-Slaine Prog 1100) plus Lost Tales weighs in at 112 pages.  Say 120 with covers, titles etc.  That's a slim but viable, and very desirable, GN.  (Treasures of Britain is only 128 pages)

Secret Commonwealth is a mercifully brief 102 pages.  Throw in a host of extras like the Dermot Power Poster Prog, the missing Arrow of God story from the '89 Annual and maybe some more Diceman stuff (there is more, isn't there?) and you'd have another, quite horrid, thin volume. 

You certainly could get all the core story into one chunky 220-page volume, and I wouldn't think it too many, and it's definitely the approach that'd dilute the disappointment of Secret Commonwealth most effectively, but then would we ever see the remaining 'extras' appear in the current GN line? 

The thickest of the existing Slaine GNs is Slaine The King at 256 pages, so you clearly could get all the remaining stuff under one cover - 214 pages of story, with 40-odd pages of extras.  That'd be my preferred option, and would make for an amazing collection, but would it be in Rebellion's interests?  On the other hand, is anyone, other than Thryllseekyr, going to buy Secret Commonwealth for a dozen bonus pages of Dermot Power and Steve Parkhouse art?

Title: Re: Forthcoming Thrills!
Post by: credo on 08 August, 2013, 10:51:31 am
Here, here!!!

I hope it's a single chunky volume. I've personally found Grail War to be difficult enough* and, having only seen a handful of pages from Secret Commonwealth, I've been anticipating it with a mixture of dread and perverse, self-loathing delight.

* I loathe King of Hearts and its Braveheart bandwagoneering guff, and can't read the Grail Wars stories without thinking about how an earlier Mills would have been more likely to have Simon De Montefort as an incarnation of Torquemada. He really was scraping the Slaine-across-time barrel by this point.
Title: Re: Forthcoming Thrills!
Post by: TordelBack on 08 August, 2013, 11:13:09 am
Surely a Slaine: barbarian files is due?

I agree, but preferably not before the rest of us get the last remaining 214 pages of story in the current fully in-print spinetastic series!

As to Credo's thoughts on the Grail War... De Montfort as yet another archetypal Mills Torque-baddie would have been horrendously predictable, but as it was the twist Mills delivered in that story was pretty darn clever.  Especially the tender-slash-awkward campfire scene.  The story is probably my personal highlight of mid-period Slaine. 

The less said about King of Hearts the better.  Its only virtues are that it's short, and there's the (very) occasional nice Percival panel.
Title: Re: Forthcoming Thrills!
Post by: Max Headroom on 08 August, 2013, 11:47:52 am
I don't really see the point of a 'Barbarian Files' really, as we have (or will have) all of the stories printed in chronological order. The Poster Prog story has already been reprinted in a previous collection, but I do hope 'Arrow of God' and the two remaining Dice Man stories are not overlooked in the either one or two trades to come. Also, there is a short story called 'Beyond' which appears in Year Prog 2000 which I think leads into 'The Secret Commonwealth' which will probably need to be included as well. My own personal preference is for one (albeit hefty!) volume comprising all this material to be released in 2014 (which we may have to pay a little bit more for), as to split into two would leave both volumes just a bit too thin. 
Title: Re: Forthcoming Thrills!

... De Montfort as yet another archetypal Mills Torque-baddie would have been horrendously predictable, but as it was the twist Mills delivered in that story was pretty darn clever. 

Agree that it would probably have been hackneyed. In my mind I just transplant the opening scene of De Montefort burning the Cathars into a scene from The Two Torquemadas. To my mind, the depiction of De Montefort as doing the work of the Goddess in the name of Christianity is one of the few examples of Mills seeming to betray his own politics/morality in his work.

The Poster Prog story has already been reprinted in a previous collection...

Soth!  You're right, quick visit to the bookshelf reveals it's the Power short at the back of Demon Killer - damn, I thought I had more Slaine to look forward to!

The Mammoth in the room re: a putative skinny Volume 10 is that 90% of it would have to be Secret Commonwealth, a strong contender for the worst-ever Slaine story.  At least a bumper all-in Volume 9 would have lots of strong content to offset that.  I actively wince at the idea of handing over 20 euros for the Secret Commonwealth.  Again.  Do the right thing Tharg!

* I loathe King of Hearts and its Braveheart bandwagoneering guff, and can't read the Grail Wars stories without thinking about how an earlier Mills would have been more likely to have Simon De Montefort as an incarnation of Torquemada. He really was scraping the Slaine-across-time barrel by this point.

In its defence (not that it really deserves one I'm not a fan of this period of Slaine at all) the ever better informed than me Grant Goggins explains some of its problems here.

Oh it's not the pacing that's the problem with King of Hearts - its actually quite brisk, despite supposedly taking place over 7 years.  It's that I'd already seen the movie and it was better, I can't tell Slaine and William Wallace apart most of the time and they are the only two human characters, and the whole thing apparently takes place at the bottom of a stagnant pond (which is a bit much, even for Scotland).  But it is quite short, and Percival draws ladies' unclad bottoms in a more-than-acceptable fashion.

I think it's important to distinguish The Grail War from Secret of the Grail.  The former is clever and quite original in the overcrowded field of Cathar historical fantasies, confounds expectations and has some great images from Tappin.  While the latter is still fun, it's far more conventional, there's some terrible rave-humour and the wheels begin to come off the art towards the end as it slides towards generic fantasy.  Still makes Vol. 8 one of the more interesting and diverse collections in the saga.

Slaine is very well-served by the current trade line.  There are 8 trades collecting almost everything in original print-order up to the end of Slaine's time-travelling experiences, with one or two more to go, and then a series of hardbacks collecting the Langley-era stuff.  The 'early' stuff (aka the 'good' stuff) is in the first 4 softback volumes, Warrior's Dawn (Kincaid, Bellardnelli and McMahon), Time Killer (Bellardinelli, Pugh and Fabry), Slaine The King (Collins and Fabry) and The Horned God (Bisley).  All are still in print, I believe.  90% of the contents of those four is pure gold, the other 10% is pretty good too.  If you get nothing else buy and love Volume 1: Warrior's Dawn, one of the best collections of anything out there under a cover that is the Greatest Single Image in 2000AD history (IMO).

The only one I'd go as far as to say that for is Warriors Dawn personally.

The Horned God is mostly good too. The other two I thought were really inconsistent.

That's all I've read so far, I may jump straight to Invasions next based on what I've heard about the 90s stuff.

It seems that possibly it is, following the theory that if Book of Scars is re-writing the classics slightly then there has been changes to the past.

However as we've seen the changes is it a true reboot? It isn't a Rogue/Friday kind of reboot.

Dash here with another cover for you:

(http://i1180.photobucket.com/albums/x418/Dash_Decent/Ezquerra2_zpsc1fba238.jpg)

I just love this, even the way Carlos has added too many links so lesser artists don't feel so bad about how far behind they are. ; D

This second collection of Carlos Ezquerra-illustrated stories includes "The Apocalypse War" as well as "Robot Wars," "Kirby's Demon," "Rights of Succession," and more.

Hardcover: 248 pages
Publisher: IDW Publishing (27 Aug 2013)


The Amazon "Look Inside" feature reveals the contents to be:


That works out to be 312 pages, not including the cover gallery at the back (covers for progs 245, 250, 254 and 256 can be seen in the preview).  That's a much higher page count than Amazon are quoting on their website (248 pages).

There are jumps in the prog-runs for The Apocalypse War and Death Aid.  Can someone smart please tell me if that means part of the stories are left out (drawn by another) or merely the nothing-to-worry-about end of story then later return/refrain/linked but separate concluding story?

Without checking the Death Aid progs, the gap in the Apocalypse War run was simply that Carlos had gotten behind, so prog 268 featured a reprinted Ian Gibson Dredd story - which was unrelated to the Apocalypse War. Normal service was resumed the following prog.

No part of either story is missing - as Judge Jack says, there was a random reprint towards the end of the Apocalypse War one week, and a few Wagner one-offs got printed in the middle of Death Aid, so both those two will be complete.

I think "We've got you Now" might have garnered a 6/10 from me, maybe even a low 7 if I'm feeling generous.

I'd say Volume 2 is actually worse than Volume 1, so you made the right decision.

Half of Volume 1 I'd consider giving 6/10 to.

Volume 2 is probably all 4s IMO.

The new Cursed Earth story might be rising back up to all time high levels of 6s again though :lol:

Yes, annoyingly there's a single series that wraps up the Disraeli trilogy begun in 'Creation' - 'The Deal,' which ties up all the loose ends from 'Hostile Takeover' with Frank going to Hondo to rescue Aimee and the identity of the The Big Man finally revealed and resolved.

Such an odd descision not to include it in the last trade as it's so clearly the end of a long-running arc - and with Frank's next appearance happening in Saudade, which won't necessarily make much sense published seperately from its Trifecta brethren, Lord knows what's going to happen with a future collection. It's all become a bit of a mess. Wish they'd just start again and publish Low Life in its own dedicated trades, personally.

I know its hard to put the two together. I genuinely believe 2000ad is the greatest out there. I don't get that feeling off the Meg (leap of logic there I know) and maybe there's some underlining desire not to get second tier 2000ad to dilute my love of the GGC... though of course not reading the bloody thing makes it very hard for me to say its second tier with any authority BUT all reviews etc and comments here do kinda suggest it is.

Richard, I think they may be trying to balance each book between BW and color stories.  Maybe Meka-City, Fungus and those other Ezquerra Dredds from the 270s/280s will be in volume two?

Nope - bizzarely, they were all in volume 1!

Hang on, this is the contents that were quoted:

    Robot Wars - progs 10-17                                          (41 pages)
    The Apocalypse War - progs 245-267, 269-270          (153 pages)
    Kirby's Demon - prog 638                                            (6 pages)
    The Amazing Ant-Man - prog 640                                 (6 pages)
    Young Giant - progs 651-655                                     (30 pages)
    By Lethal Injection - progs 669-670                            (13 pages)
    Rights of Succession - prog 671                                   (7 pages)
    Dear Annie - progs 672-673                                     (13 pages)
    Death Aid - progs 711-715, 719-720                          (43 pages)

What is in the book that is missing from this list?

Aye, that's correct. Not sure where the confusion is coming from, so here are (bad quality) screengrabs of the contents for each book - top is volume 1, below volume 2. Basically, it's all been done arsebackwards and makes very little obvious sense, with all the Apoc-War aftermath stuff happening before the Apoc War itself. Presumably this made sense to someone somewhere.

I like that cover.  They seem to be standing on the helmets of the more popular strips.  I can see a Judge helmet, Helm, Johnny Alpha's pointy hat, Hammerstein?  It looks more like they are standing on the skulls of the vanquished, rather than on the shoulders of giants.

I kinda wish they’d theme these things by author – I want to have Tribal Memories in a collected TPB form very much, but it’s frustrating that I have to own Xtnct to do so. I’ve said it before – bring out The Pete Milligan collection: Freaks, Shadows, Tribal Memories, The Dead, Sooner or Later / Swifty’s Return + assorted Future Shocks (with Bix Barton getting its own TPB, clearly.)

That looks like a very interesting collection. Agreed, however, that a bumper Pete Milligan Collection would be beautiful. He was certainly an eclectic voice in 2000AD at the time - Tribal Memories, The Dead, Bad Company, Hewligan's Haircut, Bix Barton, Sooner or Later really span quite a range of styles.

Not caring for comics much outside tooth (difficult to wade through the capes to find the good stuff), I have no idea of his other work, nor why he no longer writes for the Galaxy's Greatest. Anyone want to fill me in?

The first series was definitely the best of them but I remember Ewins doing some great work in the later stories - he really took that angular 'design' look to its extreme. Lovely stuff.

Wow! Eclectic ain't the word! Half of those I've never even heard of - the only ones I've actually read are Visible Man, XTNCT and Family. I love that after 13 dedicated, expensive years in Tharg's clutches I'm still playing catch-up.

Really great idea, this. To be honest I'd rather have one-off series bunged in a grab-bag like this than have to buy several slim 90-page books of each (or simply never have a reprint at all).

That's fair enough, and I didn't mean to sound quite as critical as my post reads in retrospect - I can see the logic and think Rebellion have done an overall fantastic job with their collections. To be honest, I probably will buy Sci-Fi Thrillers: even if I'm not interested in or dislike some stories, there's others it'll be nice to have collected. It was just the presence of 'Tribal Memories' that suddenly rekindled my desire for a Milligan collection, but I could probably have expressed that better without making it sound like I was knocking the overall concept.

While we're on the subject of one-author collections, I know John Smith has less 'name value' outside of the 2000AD world than Pete Milligan, but a bumper John Smith Collection is the other thing I'd dearly love - Revere, Firekind, Slaughterbowl, Tyranny Rex et al.

There's a really interesting selection of material in that up coming collection, but this, this imparticular is so very true. I chuffin' love Tribal Memories.

I also love Tribal Memories, and give it a first reprinting in The Best of 2000AD Special Edition back in 1993 [twenty years ago - gulp!]. Strip was subsequently reprinted again in Extreme Edition 14, according to Barney.
Title: Re: Forthcoming Thrills!
Post by: TordelBack on 07 September, 2013, 09:11:52 am
I'd have sworn it's been reprinted more often that that, just shows how firmly it's stuck in the noggin.  Tribal Memories is a great example of script and art working together to create a perfect jewel of a thing, a powerful sense of time and place, interesting characters, tidy plot and a memorable message, all in a handful of pages: exactly what 2000AD does best. 

It's been a great source of joy to me to see the short story form rising to prominence in the Prog in recent years, with the 3rillers, Bob Byrnes and the Future Terror Imperfect slots all producing material that easily matches and sometimes surpasses the headline acts.  When I started reading regularly in the 300s the Time Twisters and Future Shocks were often at the cutting edge of what you could read in comics, and I hope we're getting back to that.  Far from being filler this stuff is the USP of the anthology format.

Also could someone jog my memory about Tribal Memories. Could swear I have never heard of it and that it was serialised during my absence away from the prog during the mid nineties onwards. But, alarmingly, after checking on Barney it appears to have been in progs 585 to 588, when I was fanatically reading, yet I have no memory of the story what-so-ever. Many things I remember though it seems there are things I have no recall of at all!

Not a huge extra-toothular comic reader myself, but here's the ones I remember:

Johnny Nemo for Deadline
One Tank Girl serial which was wayyy too complex and intelligent to be a proper Tank Girl story, which should be dumb and good fun
Skreemer (which I've never read but believe is good)
Shade the Changing Man (for DC / Vertigo, which was excellent at first and was the first DC mature readers comic I read, but lost my interest after a while)

(LOTS OF IMPORTANT STUFF THROUGHOUT THE LATE 90s AND ENTIRE 2000s WHICH I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT)

Hellblazer (Throughout its last run)
Justice League Dark (Featuring the return of Shade and the new, young John Constantine without whom I personally could do).

Anyway, he's a great writer.

Yeah X-Statix, which started as X-Force was bloomin' brilliant, as are most of the things listed below. I'm also a big fan of his Human Target run.

Recently he's been doing a load of DC's Nu52 stuff, Red Lanterns being his longest run there I think. As far as I'm aware he's dropped off all those books so not quite sure what he's up to at the moment?

The American Scream storyline ran out of steam but the comic itself went from strength to strength after that. DC did get about three volumes into a big thick reprint series last year but demand seems to have died out.

Likewise. Can remember nothing really of Enigma except how great it was. Will dig it out again.

Shade, however... as I munch slowly through my (unread(!)) 90's stuff I see that next up for Shade will be 36-70 (when it may have ended, I could look that up but haven't yet). Shade was/is very hit-and-miss for me, sometimes too willfully out there. I can see the same strip being a great antidote to people in tights back in the Ditko day (good for him), but resurrecting that kind of strip in the 90's feels a bit unnecessary. A blip on the otherwise brilliant Milligan's writing. 2000ad probably gave me an aversion to "other dimensions", blah, blah, blah.
Title: Re: Forthcoming Thrills!
Post by: Grant Goggans on 10 September, 2013, 04:26:34 pm
I liked Shade at the time - I started reading it when Vertigo launched, went back, caught up and was therefore in the right place for the big story from #45-50 to break my heart.  But when I reread it a few years later, it didn't work nearly as well for me.  I think it's just too constantly brutal, without enough light.  The Madness mostly materialized as really awful horror, to the point I was questioning why anybody, even people as broken as Kathy and Lenny, would stick around Shade.

In smaller doses, monthly, it works better.  You can imagine the cracks between stories being full of friendship and love and happiness and a more whimsical Madness to keep the trio together.  But read in one giant chunk, it's really unhappy and miserable.  I sold all my issues ages ago.

(Also, the DC collected edition department did their usual half-assed job with the book versions.  The first 18 issues - the "American Scream" story - are just perfection itself to reprint, since there's a natural break with issue # 9.  Nine issues in one and nine in the second, The American Scream vols. 1-2.  But no, they did their usual six-issues-for-twenty bucks scam and wondered why sales were low.  Because they made collecting the story cost $60 for three books instead of $40 for two...?)

Any sign of an Anderson Volume 4?  I would love to see that sometime soon.  I'm around 2004-2005 on my read-through of 2000AD and the Megazine, and it looks like there's some good Anderson stuff there that hasn't yet been collected.

Post by: Judge Brian on 15 September, 2013, 06:03:32 pm
Anderson #4 would be mostly Ranson stories, right. I also think it would be the last one for some time, seeing how the psychic files pick up with Cook's first Anderson story.

I really hope they carry this series on as soon (I think after Volume 4?) it'll get to the stuff from the Meg that I don't thinks ever been reprinted and I'd love to get my grubby hands on.

I agree.  We have a complete prog and megazine collection and subs which I love but my wife insists on reading the collections.

If Keef or Molch reads this, I think they may recall us from San Diego.  If so, my old lady, the kind blonde woman, wants more Anderson.

Clearly you can't read too much into Amazon listing that much on advance BUT (and therefore I mean I am don't I) this is an odd one. At 280ish pages it would seem to echo the original Swimming in Blood DC type thing (I think it was one of the DC ones?) BUT it lists Steve Yeowell as one of the artists which implies the quite brilliant Sirius Rising trilogy is in there? I wonder what it will include as a better printing of Fetish might make that a more enjoyable read, but not convinced it will be included?
Title: Re: Forthcoming Thrills!
Post by: IndigoPrime on 20 September, 2013, 03:04:16 pm
Hmm. Could be Swimming in Blood plus Sirius Rising. Regardless, I hope it's got decent repro. The DC Swimming in Blood was just dreadful, and although I know scanning and restoring that era's art is a pain, the moiré was just eye-wrenching. It's one of the very few cases where I kept my older trade, just because the update was so appalling. (As for Sirius Rising, I do hope so—it'd be nice to have a trade that actually includes all the speech balloons.)

OK, so judging by the names, it looks like ABC Warriors: Solo Missions includes:

Red Planet Blues (Moore/Dillon), Possibly the DICEMAN ABC story (Mills/Dillon) & Joe Pineapples Greatest Hits/Dishonourable Discharge (Mills/Carney/Walker).

Doesn't seem to be anything else, but that seems very, very light for a trade. Any clues?

other possible stories for ABC Warriors collection, the deadlock mini series , the blackblood  origin story from one of the sci-fi specials, and maybe the robusters story where rojaws hides hammerstien's medals , missing from the "complete" robusters

Definitely 939, and 2.80, which takes us up to Escape From Kurt Russell and Terror with Mrs Gunderson.

Some good Wagner Dredd in their, as well as the Miller dross (which is thankfully starting to thin out). Next volume will be the last of the post-Necropolis dip, with Garth Ennis' Goodnight Kiss (although Ennis was obviously miles better than Miller/Morrison).

Bloomin' heck that means the next one will be up to the point when I've let go of my Megs and I'll have to start picking these up. That came around fast!

Mind that said the next one (or the first few after that) will also get to some of the finest Wagner Dredd stuff there is, for me at least. Just getting towards the end of a re-read of all the Wagner Dredd's from 950 onwards to date and there really is some golden stuff coming soon, even by his mighty standards.

I'm actually really looking forward to re-reading that one - at the time I thought it was the best thing Ennis had ever written for the prog, apart from 'Last Night Out' and 'Unwelcome Guests'. Hopefully it'll hold up.
Title: Re: Forthcoming Thrills!
Post by: credo on 26 September, 2013, 01:58:41 pm
My big hope is that vol. 23 is a bit of a chunky one.  Judging by the length of other recent volumes, it should end around Hammerstein, but it'd be much better to end at Man Who Broke The Law (last Miller?) and start vol. 24 with the first episode of The Pit.

Now there's a dividing line in quality if ever there was one.

So, overall a huge upswing in terms of quality - books 25 onwards are going to pretty much be freakin' amazing, wall to wall Wagner-fests. Fingers crossed that they're going to be arranging the books so that the crossovers like Tenth Planet/Conspiracy of Silence/Awakening of Angels read correctly as they did with Judgement Day. It looks like the 'lead' stories for each book will be:

21: Wilderlands/Tenth Planet, Casualties of War
22: Crusade/The Exterminator
23: Goodnight Kiss
24: The Three Amigos
25: The Pit
26: Dead Reckoning(?)
27/28?: The Hunting Party

Ah, but you'd be missing out on so much awesomeness:

Blowout
Language Barrier
Statue of Judgement/The Cal Files/Bad Frendz (which together mark the beginning of the excellent Edgar/PSU/Doomsday arc)
To Thing With Love (which is up there with Bury My Knee... as one of the all-time greatest Dredd one-shots of all time if you ask me)
The Decision
The Three Amigos

Some of my all-time favourite lesser-known Dredds right there...

Probably because there is such a wealth of Megazine material to get through (the Meg was fortnightly at this point don't forget), and also that around '95 the prog was running two Dredd episodes a week - so the amount of actual number of issues covered is due to slow down significantly as we get into the mid-nineties period.

If I have time later, I'll speculate on volumes up to the early thirties - I think I'm right in saying that there will be one or two Case Files volumes entirely composed of material written by John Wagner....

Interesting.  I wonder what it will look like, as the first non-Langley volume of the 'current' collections (allowing Book of Scars is a special case)?  Will they use the trade dress from the rest of the (excellent) softback line?

Could they not go another away and make CF24 very Meg heavy, the 2000ad stories but to the start of The Pit and the Meg stories up to the end (or as far as it needs to go to fill it). That way CF25 could have The Pit uninterrupted, which it certainly deserves?

According to Digital Spy, a Kingdom novel, "Kingdom: Fiefdom" will be published in print and e-book format in July 2014.  Dan Abnett and Nik Vincent are the authors, and the story is set 100 years after the prog strip.

http://www.digitalspy.com.au/comics/news/a517946/dan-abnett-writing-2000-ad-kingdom-novel.html

The article also mentions upcoming (e-book?) novels "Strontium Dog" and "Judge Anderson: Rookie".

Just reading Robo-K33F's provisional list for JD Case Files 23 and noticed that the Megazines are due to end in this book with 'Hot Pursuit' (3.03) and 'The Three Amigos' (3.07). However, seemingly omitted are 'Stalking the Law' (3.04) and 'Tattoo Hell' (3.05) which may or may not be included in the next volume. In my opinion, (and always being one to like to tie up loose ends), it would be better to put these two stories in book 23 and pick up fresh again with Meg 3.08 in Case Files 24. Thankfully the list is 'to be confirmed' and hopefully all will be well when the time comes; and that I have full confidence in Mr Richardson!
Title: Re: Forthcoming Thrills!
Post by: Richard on 09 October, 2013, 11:51:22 pm
The Three Amigos started in 3.02 and went on until 3.07. There probably just wasn't room for the other stories which ran next to it, so they'll be in the next volume.

I finally got to see a few of the IDW Classics in the excellent Big Bang Comics yesterday. The colouring job is sound, and I can see it appealing to the monochromaphobic, but everything else about the production was horrid.  The monstrous blank spaces and the piss-poor covers would put anyone off.

Prog 2014 solicit:

Celebrate the Xmas festivities with the 100-page Prog 2014, a mammoth blow-out of stunning stories featuring a stellar line-up of talent. Civil war explodes as mutants battle norms in Strontium Dog: Dogs of War by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra; a former member of war-droids the ABC Warriors reveals his past in Return to Mars by Pat Mills and Clint Langley; maniac-for-hire Ulysses Sweet takes a job that only an arch-psychopath could handle in Centred by Guy Adams and Paul Marshall; grab a glimpse into Inspector Harry Absalom's early days on the force in Old Pal's Act by Gordon Rennie and Tiernen Trevallion; hitmen Sinister Dexter are on the run across Generica courtesy of Dan Abnett and Carl Critchlow; the last surviving Ten-Seconder fights to get back home in a special epilogue story by Rob Williams and Edmund Bagwell; plus a special festive Judge Dredd tale featuring the art of Batman Incorporated artist Chris Burnham! All this and much more!

From the way that is worded, I'm guessing Strontium Dog, ABC Warriors, Ulysses Sweet as the January lineup, and the others as one-offs, although I'm certainly hoping that if either the Absalom or Sin Dex stories are double-length one-offs, then a longer story is right behind them in prog 1862...

That's only seven episodes.  There were eight in Progs 2011 & 2012, and nine last year.  I would like to imagine that Tharg's keeping a couple of great surprises in reserve to confound us solicit-watchers.  Hopefully one of them is indigo-colored.

I'm not sure. There just doesn't seem to be the spark the series once had, and it feels a bit too similar to Portrait and even Final Solution. The big gaps between series haven't exactly helped either.

I read Life and Death directly before the most recent series, so I did not have the huge gap. Plus I tend to read a series in one go once it is complete rather than reading it in weekly episodes, but I have been really enjoying it.

Must say I've really enjoyed new Stront too (although I only read in trade format).

No mention on where he stands on Gutsville. Still working on Annihilator I believe.

"Anon asked: Hi Mr Irving, just to wish you all the success you deserve and hope to see your art on more books, I saw X-Men terrific art. Years ago you send me a sketch of Judge Death (Im from Argentina) and that was and incredible gift from you. Again, I think you are the best artist on the medium, any chance that you return to 2000AD or Judge Death? Kind Regards, wish you the best Mr!!!! Pablo from Argentina (forgive my English!!!)

Frazer: Hi Pablo! Yes, I recall that sketch, it was one of the last actual working sketches I made before I made the switch to digital art! I’m glad it still lives with its owner :D No plans to return to Judge Death at the moment due to my work on Annihilator with Grant, but that doesn’t mean I’m closed to the idea in the future. Hope all is well in Argentina!"

Just noticed that the next volume in the Slaine trades looks to collect everything up to Book of Invasions. From the Amazon description:

"Having united the Tribes of the Earth Goddess to battle the hoards of Fomorian sea demons determined on enslaving them, Slaine was appointed as the first High King of Ireland. After protecting the tribes for seven years, he was put to death so that he could serve Danu in the afterlife. This exciting collection features a series of adventures which took place during Slaine's seven-year reign as 'King' - a period where he spent time as a near-mindless beast stuck in a warp spasm, was reunited with his son Kai and was forced to defend his lands against the Secret Commonwealth of demons led by his old enemy, Medb!"

So all the "Lost Tales" and Secret Commonwealth too. So glad that's not a volume on its own. Next question - is "Arrow of God" included?

It's one of the very best Rogue tales of all. (Frankly, I wish a clone of John Smith tasked with only writing Rogue Trooper had been given the Fr1day character after that initial run to play with.)

What is the general opinion of the Rennie stuff?  From the few pages I've seen, it was a return to original Rogue, jettisoning all the ludicrous continuity of the later Friday stuff. Is that the case, or are we still playing with the Rogue and Friday part of same universe silliness?

They were flashbacks to the original character/line-up. I personally don't think they were top-tier 2000 AD, but then I've never really rated Rogue Trooper. I imagine if you liked 'classic' (i.e. pre-Hit) Rogue, you'd like the Rennie stuff a lot.

I HAVE read the first Button Man story and its a truly fantastic contribution to the pantheon of the galaxies greatest comic. It's very different though, and not at all science fiction orientated or fantastical. Just very British, indeed, take the name John Wagner off the cover and I wouldn't have guessed it was anything to do with the prog, and was something from Toxic or Revolver maybe. And Ranson's art work! Oh my word....
Title: Re: Forthcoming Thrills!
Post by: radiator on 24 October, 2013, 10:16:25 pm
That'll be because Button Man was originally written for a different comic - I want to say Espresso(?) and is, I think, a creator owned property. I think I heard somewhere that - at least the first series - was devised so that it could potentially be serialised one page at a time, or at least be able to be broken down into any episode length.

It's tremendous - and is one of the only other 2000ad strips that would make for a genuinely great TV series or movie in my mind.

It was intended for Toxic, dropped by the then Ed, and Wagner took Button Man and Al's Baby to the house of Tharg (IIRC!!)

Ah yes, think it was I was a Teenage Tax Consultant that was for 'Expresso'(?)

Does anyone know when the new Zombo trade is coming out? I thought it was out already but there is no sign of it on the on-line store so I'm guessing it has been put back.

It looks a bit... neon, as though someone's mucked about with the colour levels a bit in Photoshop. Always looked fine before now.

I like that cover.  They seem to be standing on the helmets of the more popular strips.  I can see a Judge helmet, Helm, Johnny Alpha's pointy hat, Hammerstein?  It looks more like they are standing on the skulls of the vanquished, rather than on the shoulders of giants.

Looks like a rather impressive anthology of one-offs and and also-rans.  I'm seeing The Visible Man, The Amazing Maze Dumoir, Xtnct, Tribal Memories for definite, and is the guy in the foreground Greysuit?  Is the sword-wielding guy from Telguuth, and who is the dame with the machine gun?

That's Homer the Barbarian. The girl with the gun is from Family. Foreground man is the Universal Soldier.  You can't quite make out the young girl from Life Cycle, the robot from Colony Earth, or Superbean....

I hadn't noticed the Skizz helmet in the pile before now, nor the 'dead' Stogie on Helm.  And is that Dante's rifle at the back?

Good eye!  We also have Pulger's dress, Shakara's laser-knife thingie, a Moab grav-suit helmet, Torque's mask, Savage's shootah, Earl Reagan's stetson.... but what's that between Hammerstein's No. 1 head and Helm, and what's just above Dredd's helmet?

Think I'd buy this on the basis of that cover alone!

Yep.  What's the white thing snaking in on the left behind Shakara's weapon.  Is it Ace Garp's scarf? And is that the High Rock grounded in the background (also on the left) beyond Dante's flintlock?

Excellent work Tombo, and for Defoe's mask too!  And well done Dash for getting Ace's scarf and the High Rock.  The G-string is probably Zombo's, based on the red 'jewel'.

Squint really hard and you can see the eye slots and nose guard.  And TordelBacks right, it is Zombo's thong, I though that red thing was part of Helm.

I'm so looking forward to Swimming in Blood. The Devlin Waugh trades were horribly disappointing, with SiB being a mess from a repro standpoint (moiré city) and Red Tide missing a load of captions. The character deserves so much better, and I'm thrilled Waugh will be getting a second go. Maybe I'll finally be able to give away my Hamlyn collection!

Looks like Prion are releasing a paperback version of their 2009 hardback (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Best-%2522Judge-Dredd%2522-n/dp/1853757187/ref=sr_1_6?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1383301950&sr=1-6&keywords=Best+of+Judge+Dredd%3A):

Best of Judge Dredd: Classic strips from the galaxy's greatest judge (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Best-Judge-Dredd-Classic-greatest/dp/1853759104/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1383301774&sr=1-1&keywords=Best+of+Judge+Dredd%3A+Classic+strips+from+the+galaxy%27s+greatest+judge+%5BPaperback%5D)

The Best of 2000 AD is Prion Books' latest sci-fi comic strip offering and will be a dream come true for an entire generation of manboys who grew up with one of the world's greatest ever crimesolvers. Judge Dredd is the future's most famous law enforcement officer bar none. He has graced the pages of the generation-defining cut sci-fi comic 2000 AD for over 30 years and now also features in his own Judge Dredd Megazine.

Prion Books, 288 pages, paperback, 13th March 2014

Er, manboys?  Is that a typo for fanboys, or something from Thailand I don't want to know about?  And I love the fact that Dredd "now also features" in his own Megazine, like it's only been running for a fortnight.

Also, at 288 pages, it's 16 pages shorter than the hardback version.  Does that mean Prion have decided some of their selections weren't the best after all?

I think it's only actually Vol.3 out of print (at least that was the only one I ever had trouble finding). I asked if we are ever going to see the whole series in print again and apparently they have been told we will at some point but that was several years ago...  :(

If ever a series would benefit from being squeezed into 3 'compendiums' approaching maximum casefiles girth, it's Dante.  The storytelling is so clear, the scope so wide, the structure so well-defined from the start that having masses of the stuff under one cover is no problem at all.

A recent re-read of the beginning and the end (the middle would require a non-trivial trawl of the Attic of Despair) really highlighted how great a work it is.  Looking at my existing intimidating mishmash of different trades and scattered progs, I would buy omnibus editions with new covers (Frasers bookending start and finish, Burns in the middle) without a second's hesitation.  That, or a half-dozen heavily annotated/sketchified two-volumes-in-one series.

The world needs to see Dante stand among Dredd, Stront, Nemesis, Halo and Slaine as a true giant of the Prog.

I've said it before but Dante almost seems designed to be split up into 5 omnibus editions. 1 -  everything up to the outbreak of war (Love and War), 2 - the complete tsar wars, 3 - Return of the Gentleman Thief and the pirate saga, 4 -  all of the Sword of the Tsar stories ending with Amerika, then 5 would begin with Prisoner of the Tsar and end with the finale. Not only would each book cover each of the five distinct 'phases' of the story, but books one to four would all end on a great cliffhanger.

It'll never happen though, Dante doesn't really seem like a big seller.

Welll I never bought the books mainly because I could not tell what order they were in, they did not seem like a unified set, they were too thin.

The Omnibus idea is great. Maybe if they took preorders for the 5 books beforehand and had them in a slipcase for £100. I would go for that!

I actualy only have the one Dante TPB. The UK edition of The Romanov Dynasty which I got a few months ago for something crazy cheap from the same guys I got the £1 Red Sea's collection from. I won't bother with the rest sadly due to lack of uniformality and scarceness of 2 and 3. An Omnibus edition similar to the Casefiles or The Walking Dead compendium would be bliss.

Mmmm.  While I really do appreciate the financial constraints on Rebellion and Robo-Keef, yesterday I chanced a look at the (very extensive) 2000AD GN holdings of FP Dublin, and the Dante situation there is a shocking mess.

They have a smattering of later volumes in the 7-10 region, and then a sole copy of the Too Cool to Kill version, which while a very handsome pro
