Hell Machine is a mental story! I'd like to see this continued in the prog.

Perfectly good ending for Feral and Foe. If it never comes back, it was a good stand-alone series. But I wouldn't mind if it came back with new characters. The world the writer has built is strong enough to support a new cast. I'd be less happy if the people who apparently died turned out not to be dead after all, or came back from the dead.

Michael Carroll bought Dredd some extra time with his story The Carousel a couple of years ago, in which Dredd has regular rejuvenation surgery. But that's just a sticking plaster solution in the long run. I think that finally addressing this issue properly could make a good story, in the right hands.

To be fair, CF 4 is also a strong contender.

Fungus is in the next volume. But nobody needs a "trigger warning;" life is triggering, get used to it.

That is definitely a great collection of stories, and if I was recommending a place for a new reader to start it might be that volume.

The best arguments against Brexit were always that Brussels is less incompetent and less heartless than Westminster. </Brexit>

Phone them, they're very good at sorting out that kind of thing.

I like Feral and Foe. If it wasn't for the swearing it would work very well as an "all ages" story.

It's not just you, I feel the same about the story and the art. I didn't even buy volume 5.

 Tjm86 has it right, and there's plenty of evidence for this. Mutie the Pig and Origins give Dredd's birth as being in 2066, and Origins and at least one other story say Dredd was artificially speed-grown to age five by the time he was hatched. The current year is 2142, so he's chronologically 76 but biologically 81, except that various rejuvenation treatments would make him seem physically younger, but we don't know by how much.

Numerous stories, starting with The Return of Rico, say Dredd graduated in 2079, which means he only spent 13 years in the Academy instead of 15, but there have been several mentions of cadets being fast-tracked through the Academy, including Giant jnr and Beeny. In First of the Many it says Dredd was 18 when he graduated.

I can't remember where the paper lung reference is but I thought that was Rico.

Could be a typo. What auto-corrects to paper?

My favourite bit of Sinister Dexter was "Fun Rides and Slots," fnarr fnarr.
