Also, as a general principle with the Collection they seem to try to release one 'new' and one classic strip per month. They haven't been entirely consistent with this (e.h. ABC and Rogue Trooper Vol.1s this month) but it looks like a rule-of-thumb. I'm guessing that releasing Traitor To His Kind alongside Nemesis Vol.3 is in part to follow this pattern?

Looks more like they're issuing it in two strands: classic and modern, and those at least will be (broadly speaking) in order. That said, the modern book we've already had doesn't print the strips entirely chronologically. (Not that it probably matters too much.)

So SD's being issued out of order? Or does it make sense because of jumps in continuity after the Final Solution?

Who's the cover artist?

Angelic finished off in a kind of abrupt way. Was puzzled that Eye suddenly appeared in the story but still, great art, fun words, simply spurrier.

It's not the end — the series is ongoing, it's just taking a brief break (mainly so Caspar can catch his breath) then it's on to the next story arc.

Oh man!  You have my sympathies.

Ha ha - it had its good points. The arcades during the 'golden age' being one of them.

Does Uncle Pat really think there will be a single reader who is thrilled and excited by the revealed line up of anti ABC Warriors. Or does he do it just for a collective face-palm? At least Savage is fun (stupid but fun)

Okay, first time entry - go easy on me!
Not sure it's dark enough.

Last Moments-

Begin Message:
*cough, cough* Uh…this is Cadet Judge Sophia Higgins. Judge Evans is dead. I’m…aaargh… pinned. Can’t get a signal to control. I’m in the Undercity, I….wait… hold on, I can hear someone.
Someone’s coming. May be help.
Message Ends.

Okay – this is Cadet Higgins. Gotta be quick. Troggs have found us. They’ve taken Evans. I think…I think they’re cooking him. Hard to see – visor’s covered in blood…muck. I can see the campfire.
My right arm is broken – above the elbow I think. Left arm pinned under Lawmaster – trying to free it. Can feel something – maybe reach…uh  – could be something useful.
All weapons lost – troggs have them.
Can’t feel legs.

Begin Message:
Higgins. Situation deteriorating. Can see a little better now. Helmet is gone – troggs have it. Legs useless. The…the rats are in the wounds. No saving them. No saving me. Still trying to free left arm.
Only thing working is this damn bike computer…I hope…I hope you’re still working you piece of…

Higgins. Control – hope you get this. This could be my final message – please log. At 2300 hours, while on final assessment, Judge Evans and I initiated a high speed chase in pursuit of suspected organ-leggers through sector 20. Suspects driving a pink Foord Funster, heading toward the docks. Recommend further investigation. I think…I think someone pulled a blazooka. The road just opened up- no time to react. Must have been an existing weakness I guess. Don’t know how long I was out.
Left arm almost free. Got a little surprise cooked up. They’re…they’re still eating Evans. They’ve made some kind of – trophy I guess – they seem to like the eagle. Guess I know how they feel. Was...uh...kinda hopin’ to make full eagle myself.

“That’s all we could salvage, Dredd.”
“Supposition?”
“Evans was killed outright. Troggs found them – made a meal of Evans while saving Higgins for later. Looks like Higgins managed to open the bike’s ammo cache and pull her arm free. Remains suggest the arm was badly damaged. I think she…well…I think the poor kid spat an incendiary round into the campfire. That’s why this place looks like a charnel pit. She wasn’t getting out alive – guess she decided to take them with her.”
“Hmmph. Okay Smith, write it up. When you submit your report recommend that Higgins is recognised as a pass. I want her listed as a full-eagle Judge.”
“Sir, that’s highly irregular...I”
“Just do it. If anyone has any questions, send ‘em my way."

"Control this is Dredd. Get a repair squad to sector 20 city bottom – we’re done.
Heading dockside – see if PSU have anything on a pink Foord Funster – suspected organ legging operation. Dredd out.”

Brass Sun provided a bit of a surprise, Bad Company barrels along, and the new Dredd starts very well. Savage and ABC Warriors showcase the various ends of the Mills spectrum, with the latter making me think he enjoys trolling the readers. Still, at least with the 407th Mills line-up, we didn't have full-page portraits of each of the ABC Warriors' opposite numbers. But, good grief, for a strip that used to be jam-packed with madness and new ideas, it hasn't half become utterly boring and predictable.

How many times now have we had this set-up? And you just know that the Warriors will emerge victorious (possibly after getting horribly smashed up, but then rebuilding themselves), ready for the next set of books where they are laboriously reintroduced, chat a bit about the old days, talk about Mars a bit, and then fight another bunch of mostly throwaway foes that are introduced one at a time.

I think this clashes with holidays for me so I'm out before I'm in.
