New Readers Start Here!
« on: 20 September, 2012, 10:48:05 pm »
So, as we're getting a rather wonderful influx of new folks, I thought rather than having each of them asking where to start, the good folks of the board could help them out on this thread.
So, apart from Dredd, what to start with?

I would suggest the  Kingdom and the Nemesis volumes to kick this off.

Zombo (it's a laff riot), Shakara and Nikolai Dante.

And I'd like to second everybody else's suggestions.

Hi, I'm new to the forum but not to 2000ad (although I have some catching up to do).
Anyway, my top strips have always been:

Strontium Dog
A.B.C Warriors
Slaine

Anything that stands out in the ten years since was last reading the prog?

Try some of those Anderson phonebooks too. She's simply wonderful. And get your teeth into Halo Jones for your first nibble of Alan Moore.

Is Robo-Hunter still around? When was his last visit to the Prog? I seem to remember loving it.

I got the best advice going when I joined at christmas. I am willing to collate it all for a fee. I should add that I have had an absolute ball and I am indebted to everyone who gave me the advice. I am also poor.

IF YOU WANT TO GET A KID HOOKED...
Robusters, Harlem Heroes

What's "Judge Dredd"?
CASEFILE Vol 5 - Future Crime, Judge Death plus the apocalypse war.

IF YOU KNOW DREDD A BIT...
The Pit (sector house procedural),  Brothers of the Blood (all the clone stories), Origins (how the judge system arose), tour of Duty (recent Dredd developments)

IF YOU DON'T CARE FOR DREDD
Brass Sun, stickleback, red seas, Defoe, shakara zombo....  too may thrills to mention.
