So much lovely data :)

With those Dredd lists I should be able to answer the question "what % of Dredd have we seen reprinted in the collections?".

Apologies I should have posted the wiki link for anyone that may be interested. The PDF is available to download from here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_2000_AD_stories

Whilst I applaud who ever had taken the time to put this together, as it is certainly a great resource, I can’t help but spot a mistake on the first page - the first series of ABC Warriors from Prog 119 to Prog 139 is not listed.

Usually called (much less poetically) 'Bad Company 2002'.

Quick question for subscribers- the wallet that served as a gift, is it in any way decent? I'm after a wallet to replace my Marvel one that's a bit knackered and would prefer a 2000ad branded one. None on the website, etc, but there's a subs gift one on ebay. Most importantly, does it have a *ZIPPED* COIN POCKET?
Thanks in advance.

My opinion; this was the lamest of the free gifts sent to subscribers and is probably not worth paying the postage price for.  I honestly can't recall if it had a zipped coin pocket or not but given the no expense production values I doubt it.

Not entirely on-thread, but Hachette’s Transformers series has been extended to 100 issues. I only mention it as it bodes well for an extension to this one too.

Good, on the basis that the existing length was absurd. It was supposed to cover from the original Marvel books through to the end of the IDW run (pre-reboot), but there weren’t enough pages. Mind you, the repro was absolute dogshit on the Marvel US stuff, sadly.

I doubt it will happen but I'd adore a complete hardcover Red Seas collection, in the way we're getting  a Dante one.
