Judge Fear's Big Day Out And Other Stories - Paperback, 416 pages, 12th November 2020

New anthology collecting the very best prose stories from the pages of the Galaxy's Greatest Comic!

A shopping mall where droids sell organs harvested from street trash...
A murderous imaginary friend...
A psychotic composer drafting music from pain...
All in a day's work for the Lawman of the Future.

Judge Fear's Big Day Out and Other Stories gathers the very best short stories from more than a decade of the Judge Dredd Megazine, including stories by legends Alan Grant, Gordon Rennie and Simon Spurrier, among countless others...


Not sure how the number of contributors to a ~400 page book can be 'countless'.  It's probably meant to refer to the megazine.

Judge Dredd: Year Three - Paperback, 416 pages, 2nd February 2021

The third omnibus collecting three great brand-new novellas about the early years of iconic comics character Judge Dredd's career.

Mega-City One, 2082. In two short years, Judge Joe Dredd has tackled hardened killers and would-be revolutionaries, he's taken beat-downs and bounced back, he's even arrested his own brother.

Ain't no such thing as a "normal year" in the Big Meg. In his third year on the sked, he'll become embroiled in the growing anti-robot movement; he'll head back out to the Cursed Earth; and he'll fall afoul of the secretive SJS - and not for the last 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?
