So what are the next few volumes after Cursed Earth which I thoroughly enjoyed.  I remember reading this in the original progs way back.

I STILL think that the Grunwalders body looks a bit like C-3PO, but I don't know if I'm alone there.

Mine just arrived. The World At Law looks like a 'back of the queue' book, but then I flicked through and had forgotten about the Parkhouse tale. And, in all honesty, I do hope another crack at Siku's PAJ makes me appreciate it a lot more than I did at the time (which wasn't the case with Judges In Kilts).

Mutants in Mega-City One. Oh my. I've been looking forward to this one for ages, and it's now sitting next to #47 and #48, which I've managed to avoid reading, to take the entire thing in one hit. And now, of course, I'm on evil deadlines of doom thanks to the bloody Apple event tomorrow. ARGH. Still, I'm sure it'll be great when I have the time.

Thought I'd give the FB page a nudge about the extension's contents, but no new books confirmed.

They said that Every Empire Falls and Hershey are not titles in the extension though.

Going to stick with my guess that EEF is coming in the 2000AD collection instead.

Description and cover up at Hachette for issue 72 - Independent Operators.

Looks like Harmony takes up most of the volume with O'Rork from Jim Alexander too.

'The World at Law' is a slog. There's some exquisite art but can anyone say they enjoy these tales? Maybe I'm having a bad day! I've only ever given up on Calhab before. The thing is I hated 'Klegg Hai' but I've grown to like it. Should I persevere with this volume? This isn't meant to disrespect any of the talented creators involved, just the story selection.

The FB says a post DoC book is planned. Really really hope it's heavy on Wagner :)

I can't say I was enthralled by The World at Law, the Pan African Judges first story was readable, the second less so.  Zancudo was just....chaotic, the next story wasn't too bad, but the Faust one was just just too silly.

Maybe if I read them again I will think again but I really don't think so.

i like deathwatch as a silly blackadder with a judge in it but its hardly a classic

pan african was better than i remember despite that unfortunate van busen character in it and his horrid speech inflections

I'm astonished and delighted that what I'd always thought of as the weaker end of the Megazine Vols 2 and 3 has now been reprinted - is there anything beyond Soul Sisters & Straightjacket Fits that hasn't seen the inside of a shiny hardcover at this point?? I guess we 'need' a complete collection of Judge Hershey standalone tales, if that hasn't come through in the Mega Collection yet.

I'm almost tempted to get the World at Law collection if the repro is good. Pan African Judges is all over the place as a comic but Siku's art, especially on Book 2, was all kinds of gorgeous. And it couldn't be more of a contrast with Adrian Salmon's style - a bold choice to mix those two in one volume.

Mutants in MegaCity Onr is stunning, truely the Crown Jewels of Dredd stories. It's almost as if they partner a weaker book with the best stuff. As we get to the final year or so of this series some of the story choices & order seem baffling. Have we seen Chopper before Oz? Have Banana City or Texas City Sting appeared?
