If, say, I didn't yet have a collected _America_, is there any difference between the 2013 collected edition and the Mega Collection one (apart from the cover)..?

Yes, there's one extra story collected in the Mega Collection book.

It also collects Judgement Call (Beeny after ToD), Blood and Duty (Dredd meets his niece), Firepower (Dredd rams his lawmaster through a perp) and Snowstorm (Dredd vs the illegal trade of sugar).

Nice collection. Both Judgement call and Blood and duty adds a nice touch I think.

Is Firepower the Garth Ennis / Colin MacNeil one?

Yes, that's the one. I think it's one of few stories where Dredd can be seen smiling?

Only read part way through War on the Streets and I'm not at all happy. Not with the stories which are great but the reproduction is lousy. Too dark and a lot of text is virtually unreadable. I wonder if it's possible to get a proper replacement from Hachette.


I just finished reading that one. Didn't remember the stories being this bad in the case files. At times I wondered if words were crossed out only to find that the text was there, only very smudgy. Bit of a shame. But overall I really liked the volume, outside repro issues.

I have, some days ago, no response as yet.
