So I know with all the excitement of the 2000ad Ultimate collection the extension of the MegaCollection seems a bit old hat. Do we think the extension will favour Dredd-world (more Anderson - she doesn't feature on the 2000ad spine) or more of the main strip? I can't really justify buying both series so I'm hoping we get some more great stuff here. I'd really like to see Graveyard Shift reprinted as the blueprint for Modern Dredd.

I'm hoping for some modern Dredd, like Enceladus or Every Empire Falls, with a bit more Dredd-world. The Ultimate collection is likely going to favour pure Dredd rather than connected characters, so the extension is the best place for peripheral series to go, I think.

I agree, I think the Ultimate Collection will feature "Dredd 101" stories that stand up on their own without linking to too much ongoing continuity. The Graveyard Shift is a great standalone story so this could feature in either collection I think.

Just listened to the latest Thrill-cast and there's some revelations from Tharg on there as to what will be included in the MC extension - I won't put any spoilers to give people a chance to listen.

Since there's the occasional barrel scraper in the Mega-Collection, I vote for a volume of dodgy Dredd spin-offs that purport to be funny [a.k.a. the collected Dreddworld scripts by that dunderheid David Bishop]...

Soul Sisters & The Straitjacket Fits in one mighty tome!




...I'll get me coat.

Since I only collect some of these issues, to get stories that don't (or won't) feature in the current lineup of collected series (Case Files, Anderson, etc.), then more Dredd-world means I'll be happier buying them.
