Mike Collins had the Badlander artwork at one of the cons (Lawgiver I think), no lettering from what I recall.

All the stories apparently exist/existed, published and unpublished

Yeah, Tharg needs to fix that.

Anyone know what the 'Anderson' story was?

I'm not sure if timings fit, but there was a Grant/Ewins dark judges story which Brett did some concept dark judges for.

Think it might have been posted on Dale's 2000AD Tat and Chat FB Group.

It never happened but they eventually made a cameo in a story where alt dimension Judges from Judda-city One where the Judda rule.

Maybe that one?

Most of the material has appeared.
Helltrekkers, the first Anderson appeared in the Prog, Bad Company by W&G and Carlos appeared in the Meg in an article.
 Blockers was in one of the Mega Specials, Badlander, first episode art completed, and the script exits too.  The cadets tale was retooled and appeared in Lawman of the Future.

I can't see on Barney that Ian Gibson did a story for LotF, so I take it that "retooled" means "completely redone from scratch." Many other stories in that comic were just re-tellings of classic tales from the prog, like Judge Death and The Graveyard Shift.

I want to see the Wagner & Gibson original.

Fascinating how Joe can bestow his bountiful wisdom upon us, and it doesn't feel like being slowly and painfully lectured to death.

Yet again i am forced to wonder why Simon Fraser doesn't draw more Dredd.  That's gorgeous.

Thanks Joe!

As I suspected, Ian Gibson's version has yet to see the light of day.

Looking forward to diving into LOTF after picking up a complete run cheap recently and having only picked up a few issues on its initial release.

I'm curious to see how the '95 movie spinoff title holds up 22 years later!
