I have loads of the individual trips cut out and stored somewhere in the many piles under the stairs.
One of my fav's is the Souster graffiti bust.

That sounds like an unreprinted one... expect mail, vvzbox!

I recently upgraded to the Hardback Mega Collection via E-bay, to replace my tatty copies of 1 - 4. Like you say, i dont think it misses any of the strips out. Never did buy the Gibson collection at the time, so ill have to make amends at some point.

There are 16 stories in vol 1 not in the MEga Collection, 2 stories in Vol 2, 6 in  Vol 3 and just 1 in Vol 4 (though if you have all the annuals, Vol 4 just reprinted the same runs as were in the annuals,  even where that repeated stuff in Vol 2 and 3!

As others have said, the DSDs are the best intro to Dreds world - The Case Files might be the start, America might be the "best", but nothing primes you in whats great about Dredds world better than these strips.

The fact they are out of print is a massive shame - the fact there are still "missing" unreprinted strips is a Betegeulsean scandal!

Wot Leigh S says..................

Also the artwork started off quite large and then by the end of Ron's run the artwork was about half the size of the original few.  :(

There were about 280ish of the Saturday Strips - mostly by the Mighty Ron Smith (269), but with a few
later ones by Gibson, at least one Ewins one (264).

The Daily strips started 06th Jan 1986 and Gibson's "Fat City" ran as a Daily from No. 516 (31/10/87) to No. 597 (04/02/88).

Personally I think the best Gibson storyline was the "Weirdies" the first that he drew for the dailies. Some of this artwork was then copied and stuck on a page and used within 2000 AD as 'full' pages.

Yes, just checked, and your right there are strips missing. It doesnt help that there not reprinted in the same order in the Mega Collection as well. Looks like ill be keeping the soft cover versions, at least until the complete Daily Star Dredds are released. Though, i doubt thatll ever happen.
Cheers for the info anyway, Leigh.

Large - The Blackwood incident is the X-files "crossover" strip.  Would have ran after Smashball if they hadnt dropped the Dredd strip (and all but one of there other strips at the same time IIRC).  Never reprinted, but pages of it flooded ebay I seem to recall!

I have loads of the individual trips cut out and stored somewhere in the many piles under the stairs.
One of my fav's is the Souster graffiti bust.

That sounds like an unreprinted one... expect mail, vzzbux!

The souster one was set at the Dan Tanna monument. Souster had a little memorial where he fell. Robotic arms would entrap scrawlers. He made more scrawl busts dead than alive.

Ok so the 4405 strip was the last Dredd related one ever done then.  :) So at least we have an end point!

Aha - Scrawl Trap.  number 185, only reprinted in the Mega Collection... though I'd be eternally grateful if you could check your stash for other unreprinted goodies - see my thread in the general section for more details!

Did the Mega Collection contain stuff not in the soft cover versions then?

Also, ive been re-reading these since this topic came up, and i found that id saved and tucked this away inside Vol 3 for some reason, alas, not a rare one.

By a quickl count, there are about 7 strips unique to the Mega Collection
