Collected Robo Hunter volume 3 from my local Thrill-merchant this morning. To my surprise there was a copy of The Horned God attached. An enclosed note says there was a small misprint on the spine which this copy corrects. This happened before with one of the Nemesis volumes, didn't it? I'm not sure if I would have noticed or been too bothered if I had, but there it is.

Revere and Cradlegrave. The Dredd collection recognised John Smith, the least the Tooth collection can do is the same.

A belated big thank you to Molch-R and the team for the completion of this series, it shows what a great legacy of stories 2000AD has produced over the years. I kept asking for it to be resumed during a lull, and it's a great tribute to stories old and new. Bravo.

Sad news. Ron drew Dredd in my first Prog (377) so my first impressions of the character were formed by him. The Stupid Gun, Pirates of the Black Atlantic, The Graveyard Shift...the list goes on. And his work on the Daily Star strips was sublime. RIP Ron.

I've not managed to find the Chopper game referenced, but here's a handy list of games that have been published in 2000AD:

Excellent work , Sheridan.

And here's the other challenge from the episode.
Who is the artist on this grail page pick by Jim? Taken from the Traveller Dredd rpg rulebook if I remember correctly.



I don't remember the artist, but it's from a subscriber exclusive poster from about 2004 or 2005 - Jim would need to have a pretty big wall, I seem to recall it was almost quad poster sized!

I used it as a background image for the Gangs of Mega-City One articles in Mongoose's Signs & Portents Wargamer magazine, so it's probable that the picture in the Dredd RPG book is the scan I made of my poster (and a right pig it was to scan in it was, too!)

I'm pretty sure it's by Kev Walker and was originally done for the 1995 film - can anyone corroborate?

Really enjoying Pj's contributions. Wherever they appear, it's a pleasure to see them.

For the record, Rage is split between Strontium Dog volumes 4 and 5.

Been enjoying this the past few years so thought it was about time I contributed something. Hope you enjoy, and Merry Christmas!

Let it Snow - a Judge Dredd Christmas story

It was Christmas Eve and Dredd was patrolling Sector 40. The city was quiet aside from a few groups of late night revellers, some of whom Dredd had cuffed to holding posts for D&D. As Dredd was passing John McTiernan block, he glanced up to the roof and noticed a flurry of snow falling, localised only to the block. After checking with Weather Control that no snow was planned until the annual short burst the following day, Dredd parked his Lawmaster and made his way up to the roof. His tight boots made large footprints in the inch-deep covering. An illegal Weather Control disruptor was in the middle of the roof and Dredd was just about to blow it to smithereens with Hi-Ex when a juve walked out of the door behind him, stopping short when he saw the lawman.

“J-Judge Dredd!”

“Is this your doing, creep?”

“Y-Yes!”

“Explain yourself before I decide how much time you’ll be doing.”

The juve hesitated, but then a look of defiance replaced the fear on his face.

“I know it was a hard time for you guys when the ice aliens attacked, but I looked out over the city when it was covered in snow and thought it was beautiful. I wanted to see that again, just for one night. The bit we get tomorrow is nothing, it’s gone in seconds, you might as well not bother. This is a white Christmas.”

Dredd considered this. His city and people had been through hell more times than he could count, and he often felt ten times his age, despite the rejuves. Shouldn’t the citizens be allowed just some fleeting moments of happiness?

“I’m taking this machine, and giving you a caution, son. Consider it your Christmas present from Justice Department. Don’t let me catch you up here again.”

With that, Dredd picked up the machine and returned to his Lawmaster, leaving the astonished juve staring after him. Maybe he was getting soft in his old age.

THE END

Thanks for the Top Tens Eamonn, glad to hear a few I voted for in there. Another tribute to Carlos as well with the high placing of his work.

A great tribute to the great man. Nice one Pete.

I just buy mine from the newsagents!
That was my plan, only we don't have any local newsagents, our McColls is run by psychopaths, and WHSmith was cagey over whether it would be able to order anything in with any regularity.

Psychopathic newsagents? That has to be a future shock/terror tale waiting to happen, if it hasn't already. I can't praise my local Thrill-merchant enough for sorting out my order for the Dredd collection and subsequently the Tooth series. Other than a couple of misses on Dredd, every issue has arrived present and correct.
