I've loved the collection. My only gripe now is that I can't afford to get both at the same time. I'll have to finish the Dredd first then pick up the 2KAD one at volume whatever and hope to pick up the ones I've missed as I go. Proper bummer :(
~~~^~~~~~~~

Be excellent to each other. And party on!

So the next JD Mega Collection is 68 -meaning 12 (or 22 if you're planning on extending). Meaning 6 months (or 11 if extending). The Collection goes live end August. My JD stuff always arrived early in the month so I'd count that as  overlapping Septembers JD so approximately 10 issues of overlap or 5 months. But then if you were a test subscriber you get the first 3 free so overlap payments wise is 7 issues - 3.5 months. or 70 quid. Not great but liveable.

Does strike me as a complete incentive to jump ship off the Dredd collection at 80 tho.

Btw - for those in two minds and who didn't get the test run - these are absolutely lovely 2000AD reproductions - the best way the vast majority of these stories will ever appear in print.
If I'd known it was harmless I would have killed it myself.

I have the original reprints of the Horned God, which are on high quality paper. I am struggling to see why I should buy it again. Other than to get the essay.

It'll be interesting to see how well earlier material fares, but 2000 AD stuff on the whole has been impressive, bar the odd niggle here and there. (Compare that to the dire Marvel-era Transformers stuff, which doesn't exactly benefit from Hachette hardbacks, in the same way some gorgeous artwork wouldn't save a DVD if the footage was 320x240px at 12FPS.)

It's making my eyes hurt trying to recognise the characters! Where's Zenith? And who's the person with their head on fire? No Judge Anderson? Nice to see Bad Company on the far right...

Skizz, Ace Trucking, Durham Red, Dr & Quinch, stickleback. Bad company! Beyond those it's the usual suspect stars. Who else? 👍🏻
Quite pleased to not be seeing Zenith actually since I own that slipcase set.

Demon Jenny from Caballistics.

There are Anderson stories in the Dredd collection, + there's that 10 volume extension to fill.

I'm having trouble getting my Hachette account to accept the subscriber number they have sent me.
Anyone else?
