And while I'm talking Case Files, can we agree that the cover of the forthcoming Vol.32 is a thing of absolute mastery?

Ooh, we've finally made it up to where I started reading the prog!

Anyone else got Case Files 31? Is it just me or does page 258 seem to be printed in the wrong order?

Yes, I agree the page feels out of order but it could have been done as an introduction to next part of JD's travel

Maybe that's it. Just feels really odd. Can anyone with the original progs confirm?

Broodblik is correct, it's just a title page for the episode.

Very cool! And I'm a month late here, but that cover is incredible for sure.  :D

Sorry for the NecroPost but, which Case File will contain the 'Your Beating Heart' or 'House of Pain' stories?

Looking forward to Vol.32, I haven't read Blood Cadets since it came out. Anything else of particular interest expected in that volume?

It will have the return of P.J. Maybe after a long absence, a John Smith one-off called Survivor Type which is one of my favourites, and the tenth anniversary episode of the Megazine. It will also conclude volume 3 of the Meg with the death of Judge Castillo.

Depends on your definition of interesting. As far as regular humans are concerned, John Wagner's return to PJ Maybe is the other big attraction, beginning a cycle of stories that only really ended in 2016, with Ladykiller.

The other two big stories are Sabs, which sees Cam Kennedy return to skysurfing, and Shirley Temple Of Doom, which introduces 'block insurance'* and has the Big Story continuity development of Stark from The Hunting Party and Doomsday dying from Grubb's disease.

Even the least interesting story, Turned Out Quite Nice Again, features the colonic explosive exploits of the activist Urban Terror (and the art of Henry Flint). The Island is notable for John Wagner ripping-off Alex Garland years before the latter returned the compliment.

Artistically speaking, we get Jock's debut Dredd, the beginning of Chris Blythe's reign as Dredd colouring doyen, Siku ditching paint for linework, the third of four Dredds Steve Parkhouse has ever drawn, and Frazer Irving's only Dredd strip work.

There are two excellent one-offs from Wagner and Pete Doherty, Slow Crime Day and Blow Out. They're both hilarious and continue the arse fixation of Urban Terror, the former introducing cavity specialist Judge Skerrit, who sees every situation as an excuse to pull-on latex.**


* Protection rackets run by organised crime gangs, a plot element that will feature again most notably in the first Mandroid story

** Skerrit accompanied legend Phil Winslade on his only visit to MC1, the Jack Straw takedown, Caught In The Act (1450-1451)

Good stuff Frank.

Also, it's posts like that that make me think you should take over the defunct Dredd Reckoning blog.
