It would be the smallest collection

It should be a sheet of paper, folded in half, with the word "sorry" written on it. But we've already heard we're getting garbage like Inferno in amongst otherwise largely good stuff, so Miller's in the mix regardless.

While I'm in no way a fan of Inferno, least the art is really good. Ezquerra really shined in it.

One story I really hope the mega collection skips is The satanist. I much much much rather read Brothers of the Blood and Total War (that totally should have BotB as a back up story) to get an idea how Vienna felt early on.

Also everything Chopper after Song of the surfer.

Yeah, Ezquerra's painted art in the 1990s was brilliant, it is a shame the stories were not classics.

If Inferno is combined with Purgatory that would be good!
It's a joke. I was joking.

Inferno & Purgatory are confirmed - I assume together.

Can I make a suggestion for a future issue please?

With thanks to Barry Renshaw for the art:

Can anyone guess what's in the first Devlin Waugh book? Will they skip anything to get to the 200 pages?

Does that miss out "fetish" then where Siku gives Dredd a crazy chin?

Chronologically speaking, it misses out Chasing Herod, Reign of Frogs, Sirius Rising, and Mouthful of Dust!

Are they missing out these to favour painted art - or just to print the best material?

Bit of both, maybe? The stories they've chosen are all fully painted, so that's possibly the key, and having Red Tide and Swimming in Blood in the same book makes a certain kind of sense.
