'Penguin Random House will adapt five 2000 AD graphic novels into full-cast audiobooks, with original soundtracks and sound design, alongside audio versions of Rebellion’s prose fiction.'
 - Hollywood Reporter

'Richard Lennon, Audio Publisher at Penguin Random House, said:“This is a really exciting new partnership which helps us reach even more listeners in this hugely popular and ever-growing section of the audiobook market. We’re looking forward to helping tell some of Rebellion’s incredible stories and to creating some truly groundbreaking recordings, particularly as we explore turning some of British comic book history’s true greats – Judge Dredd, Slaine and Rogue Trooper, to name but a few – into audiobooks for the first time.”'

General / Dredd Case File recommendations
« on: 19 February, 2020, 10:41:19 AM »
I've been asked to recommend some of the JD Case Files to someone.  He's after the crazy and inventive stuff; he liked the Cursed Earth saga but not the Apocalypse War.  He also likes the art of Bolland and McMahon, but is not (yet) taken with Ezquerra.

My first thought is CF4, which has the Judge Child saga in it, plus Otto Sump, Capt Skank and also the first appearance of Chopper.

Other than that, I'm stuck.  I need to get out the Case Files to remember what stories are in what volumes, and whether they fit the bill.  Time has been in short supply recently and I know once I get to it I'll just get sidetracked re-reading loads of stories.

Any recommendations, oh great and sagacious hivemind?

Judge Dredd - Mechanismo: Machine Law -  Paperback, 96 pages, 3rd March 2020

A buddy cop tale like no other! Man and mechanismo, on the mean streets of Mega-City One. The next chapter in the legendary Judge Dredd epic, penned by incomparable Judge Dredd co-creator John Wagner

With Mega-City one eating Judges faster than they can be replaced, the Justice Department prepares once more to trial a radical solution for their manpower shortage: The Mark-8 RV Mechanismo unit, robotic judges programmed to deal with everything the city can throw at them, with freshly programmed AIs designed to empathise with the citizens they'll encounter.

Judge Dredd himself has never hid his feelings on granting judicial powers to machines, but the responsive, resilient and ultimately expendable machines may be the answer to the justice department's
[sic] problems. Dredd is ordered to put aside his prejudices and conduct an assessment with one of the latest models, nicknamed HARVEY...

General / Titans Judge Dredd PX Vinyl Figure
« on: 11 November, 2018, 06:03:50 AM »
I've just stumbled across this figure, which also comes in a black & white version and a tattered uniform "Cursed Earth" version.  It certainly beats the Funko figure by a country mile.

When did this come out?  I can't see it in the 2000AD webshop.  Is it on sale anywhere?

Film Discussion / Rogue Trooper movie (Duncan Jones)
« on: 19 July, 2018, 01:22:14 PM »
Please, please, please let this make it to the big screen.

Please, please, please leave out the @#$@ language of Dredd so it can have a wider audience and become a hit SF movie.

Please, please, please let this mean we get a decent action figure out of it!

Announcements / Block War card game
« on: 11 November, 2017, 11:08:49 AM »
...as mentioned in a the thrill-mail a couple of days ago.

This sounds great and I'm looking forward to hearing more about it.  The box looks nice and chunky and it's great they've gone with the proper Judge Dredd logo and used Ol' Stony Font for the "Block War" text.

It's a pity there's not more detail as I'd like to know if it will be out in time for Christmas.

Website here, for those that missed it: Judge Dredd - Block War from Game & A Curry.

Nice to see a 2000AD reference in this August 2016 article on the Oxford dictionaries website:

A pity they couldn't spell 'Grud' though.

General / Planet Replicas custom Judge badges - modern style
« on: 09 May, 2016, 12:55:10 PM »
There seems to be a new badge design available at Planet Replicas: Modern Style.  (Ignore the "Borella" examples shown partway down the page.)

The head/beak are sharper and the name strip is lifted up, covering where the top of the shield and stars would be.

Whose design is this based on?
