Ennis is likely to get a book of his own, isn't he? Probably Helter Skelter and the page difference made up with his run on Dredd.

I'd like to read helter skelter
It's a joke. I was joking.

Get out your glue & scissors and you too could make a COMPLETE Judge Dredd Cursed Earth with the missing stories...

These books would have been so much nicer with the colour spreads - really missed a trick there.

I can only hope that the deluxe case files that is coming out is using new scans of the art, rather than the scans that have been used in the case files and the mega collection

How on earth did you get those extra pages to stay in place?

Copydex on spine - there's gutter loss but I'm pleased. Surprised these pages haven't been redrawn or disguised at some stage. Still if Zenith & Dan Dare can be reprinted any things possible.

Nice work.
When the Case Files came out I printed the missing stuff and I keep them in an envelope on the bookshelf with the books.
Dumb all over, a little ugly on the side.

I quite like Monkey On My Back. I would prefer it over the aforementioned.

Though I'm not sure what it would go with and its less than 50 pages long I think.

Goodnight Kiss is terrible. Key period bad Dredd.

For the sake of (the thesedays tremendously talented) Garth Ennis and the 'new readers' 2000AD wants to get from this exercise it is precisely the type of stuff to avoid. Mind you The first half of The Heavy Mob volume was exactly that over the top, not-funny, maschismo tosh that drove so many away from the comic so its clearly not verboten.
If I'd known it was harmless I would have killed it myself.

I don't mind Marshal/Goodnight Kiss, it has distinctive artwork, good fight scenes, Dredd eating Vultures whilst nailed to a cross!, and IMO the scene with the ghosts is reasonable too, I find it generally inoffensive.

I really don't like Helter Skelter at all though. Judgement Day is a little better but only because it has Johnny Alpha and an army of Zombies in it and at least comes across as grandiose (as opposed to just feeling like bad fan-fiction).

Is the Marshall the story with amazing Sean Phillips painted art? Generally I don't mind a simple story with great art or vice versa.
