Unlikely, I know, but if there is an extension (and I'm against it personally)

Some people just want to watch the world burn.

The thing I am most looking forward to is the Dead Man reveal. I didn't experience it myself, but it must have been quite a moment for readers who were there at the time - probably the biggest thing since the Apocalypse War.

I'd say the revelation that Nemesis is Deadlock was quite a shock!

That one doesn't stick for long though, does it?

Start from the beginning, Saline Warriors Dawn https://shop.2000ad.com/catalogue/graphic-novels/slaine/XB166 and follow it in chronological order.

If you want the best Saline series it is the Horned God

Personally, I think it's this one:

am i going nuts or isn't the jimp in the law according to dredd a mutant not a robot

It's a robot.

He's absolutely a mutant! Don't be led astray by that chin - it's a hunk of metal he's bolted to his face to make himself look more like Dredd.

Looking at the future release schedule on the wiki and I've just realised that 50% of the unknown issues are Slaine volumes. Assuming all the info on there is correct (some is uncited so who knows) I think it's almost impossible to avoid having 2 months in a row where the delivery contains a Slaine volume.

Oh crumbs, you're right! 16 'unknowns' and 8 Slaine volumes left...!

Well as we suspected, ABC Warriors III runs from Hellbringer book II through to Carlos' Shadow Warriors book I. It's a real shame we've become stuck in this split-volume pattern for this series, but at least they're meaty ol' collections, and this one's a doozy - if nothing else, it's a veritable artistic smorgasboard!

No design foul-ups for once (I've stopped taking that for granted!) but the last page of The Clone Cowboys is still a pixellated low-res version, as it has been in every single printing since it first ran in the prog - guess the original version simply doesn't exist at this point.

Its got the usual great intro and afterword, both of which are frank about the behind-the-scenes backbiting that turned this era of the ABCs into such a curate's egg.

There used to be a thread for inventions wot are now real that appeared in 2000AD in a fictional sense.  Well, I can't find it, so I'll just post here...

This thread?

RIP Ron Smith.
Has anyone drawn more Dredds than him? Am literally asking. Who has drawn the most?
A major talent.

I'll leave it to better nerds than me to tot up the page count, but the 2000d website describes him as "The most prolific Dredd artist in the character’s history " and I'm not going to argue with Tharg.

Influence is so much more than page count however - If Wagner & Ezquerra were the parents of Dredd, Ron Smith was the architect of Mega City One

Carlos has drawn the most single episodes of Dredd, but Ron (by virtue of the Daily Star) has drawn most Dredd stories.

Has there been any indication anywhere about when the 4th Nemesis volume might make an appearance in the Ultimate Collection? Seems like ages since the first 3 came out.

March 27th.

Super excited for this one, too. As birthday presents go (March 31st, cash gifts preferred if any of you fancied getting me something) it's a doozy!

Hammer of the Warlocks
Final Conflict (Book X)
Tubular Hells
Warlocks and Wizards
The Enigmass Variations
Day in the Death of Torquemada
Tomb of Torque
Torquemada's Second Honeymoon
Forbidden Planet

Lots of stuff in there I was hoping for, but not really expecting. I think that's everything collected bar the Diceman outings! Soooo glad that Deadlock is included - it's far more a Nemesis story than it ever was an ABC Warriors tale, and it's going to sit well with the (frankly sub-par) Enigmass Variations stuff. Here's hoping Torque's Second Honeymoon is in colour!

Great idea for a thread!

Weirdly, I got 587 to your 578...! (13th August 1988)

It's a bit... huh. Not '90's prog' bad, but it's showing early signs of the malaise that's going to afflict it in that decade. A serviceable Grant/Kitson Dredd, but there's no real resolution here as it's designed to tie into a later Anderson story; Hicklenton getting murky and indie on Nemesis Book IX, and Harrison getting murky and indie on Strontium Dog (No Go Job); plus Tribal Memories, which I've never read, but I hear good things. Plus a Danny Franks pin-up to remind me of greater glories.

I'd be lying if I said I was over the moon with this prog - apparently only four thrills, for a start! And yet I've got three of the really big hitters in Dredd, Nemesis and Stront; it's just that two of the three are feeling a little past their best by this point, flailing about for a new identity now that all their original creators (barring Mills) have moved on to other things.

7/10, I suppose? I'm aware I could have got far worse; but likewise, I was hoping for better!
