Hi guys

I thought both the IDW Dredd collections that IDW coloured (Apocalypse & Dark Judges) were pretty strong with sympathetic colours.

My daughter won't look at Halo in B&W. Could we have a *30th Anniversary version in colour produced largely for US but available here as well?

*since end of Bk3

Or you could just punish your daughter until she reads it.

A very misleading thread title.

Wasn't there a coloured U.S version from Epic or Fleetway, or am I misremembering?

Quality comics. Presumably they were coloured.

Thinking about it (as I have a few friends with children that are fast approaching 9 years old, which is when I started reading 2000 AD), it would be nice to get a coloured compilation of classic Dredd stories (e.g. Robot Wars, Return of Rico, Judge Death, Monkey Business, Unamerican Graffiti, Judge Death Lives), and one of classic 2000 AD stories (i.e. a Rogue, a Strontium Dog, a few Future shocks) - just so we can introduce them to a wilder (and more subversive) world...

To the sound of the alarms on QI...
Halo jones occupied the centre-spread of 2000ad, so was in colour. At least for the memorable double page spread.

I was only aware of this after starting this thread, so it was also news to me!

I'd love to see Halo Jones in colour. Is Dylan Teague available? Then he could go on and do some new covers.

Indeed.

The simplest way to make people appreciate Halo Jones in black and white, instead of defacing it by adding colour, is to blind them. It won't be long before they start saying things like "I wish I could see again, even if it was only in black and white." And we'd say "well you should have thought of that in the first place, you philistine."

Actually, now it has been mentioned- Dylans lush watercolour stylings like those used in his ACES Weekly Strip 'Code Name- D' would be interesting to see.
