DoC Fallout was really good. But Bender, Paris and MC2 all seemed to be setting things up that have never really paid off.

But those post DoC when taken together sell the post disaster vibe a lot better than I remember them doing at the time.

This is true. There were a lot of stories dealing with the short-medium term aftermath of DoC, more I suspect than any previous epic, even Apocalypse War. Despite this, I feel very few have really addressed what it might mean to a city to lose such a massive majority of its inhabitants in a matter of days.

MC-2 is the most interesting take since Supersurf 13, and I really want(ed) to see Bender develop further: great character.  Paris I can take or leave.

Lawless is brilliant, great characters and story, with incredibly detailed art from Phil Winslade. A cracking volume to round off the collection with.

I dont recognise all of them. But sounds promising! Love Graveyard shift.

That, right there, is a rock solid slab of premium Dredd.

Same here, along with the elusive covers volume for the UC.

Me too, under separate cover, as they forgot to include it with my UC volumes. Pretty quick though. Only complained on Monday. A rare thumbs up for Hachette.

Has the first Uncle Ump story appeared anywhere in the collection?

My only complaint recently has been that there will be no more Lawless in this collection.  I thoroughly enjoyed that, it was completely and totally different.  The artwork initially seemed a little 'busy', but once you got used to it, it was gorgeous and highly detailed.

The amount of work that went into it was really something.  Often in my posts I'll comment on the artwork and it might be a secondary thing to some people but good artwork to me really is one of the primary things that makes a story.  It's why I enjoy old stories like Trigan Empire or the original Dan Dare.

Not so far, unless it's in Crazy Town - any subscribers care to enlighten?
