As this is officially coming to an end after issue 12, anyone heard any rumours regarding IDW Dredd V3.0?

I'm sure artist Ulises Farinas stated that something is happening Dredd related in 2017.

Think he was talking about the movie sequel.

Farinas has mentioned on his FB page he'll be writing Dredd in 2017. Spoke to him at SDCC and he said IDW were interested in returning Dredd back to more recognisable environments and stories.

(He's a very nice chap.)

Good news that Dredd will have further presence with a U.S title next year!  :)

It Seems the IDW book will live on, in this new annual!

Ulises Farinas (W/A/C), Erick Freitas (W), Dan McDaid (A), Pablo Tunica (A), Pablo Tunica (VC),

It has been 10 years since the events of Mega-City Zero, and Judge Dredd continues his mission to restore order to a lawless land. But what has been happening on Luna-1 and in Mega-City Two, and how might that affect Dredd's sworn duty? The mystery of The Blessed Earth begins to unfold here!

There's also John McCrea's as-yet-unannounced Dredd thing he's writing and drawing for IDW, which is due March-ish next year.

I appreciate I'm in a minority here (a very small one at that!) but I for one am quite happy to see this incarnation of Dredd continue, if surprised.

Didn't seem to be doing great numbers and critical reaction (from the little I've seen beyond the Boards own response!) wasn't overwhelming.

Still I think its provided a really fresh and very different version of Dredd, but one I've enjoyed on its own terms.

I have enjoyed it for what it is. Leaving aside the 'it's not our Dredd' argument it's readable and batshit crazy in its own way.

Finally finished it and I must say I am at a loss for words here. It's definitely the most bizarre Judge Dredd series I've read to date.

I want Dredd to succeed in America, but this series isn't going to do that, I mean it just ended in such a clusferfudge that I'm having a somewhat difficult time figuring out what I read.  :(

I am also baffled by this series as well. I'm not entirely sure what they are hoping to achieve by making it so bizarre and non-linear. IDW should just follow the formula 2000AD has established over the last 40 years.

I did enjoy parts of this series (mostly the first 6 issues and the mystery behind waking up in the green) but the ending was pretty confusing. Why was it that Iggy was the grass and she needed to be destroyed before reality could be restored? Did Berger bestow that upon her - if so how and why Iggy? Too many unanswered questions...that I don't particularly care are answered in the series.

However, I didn't hate the series; the art was great throughout and I am curious do see where it goes next. Hopefully the February annual provides some clarification and a new direction.
