Then 339 must be the clear winner

For me, 503 or 654 have legitimate claims to the prog-crown. (576 would surely take it if Full Mental Jacket had just started then rather than two progs later.)

The 335 plus issues are always slightly let down by Rogue Trooper for me. I'm going to go with the more modern Prog 1634

http://www.2000ad.org/?zone=prog&page=profiles&choice=1634

The problem being a solid Dredd rather than a great Dredd.

Just to be awkward :) I'd go for 336 over 335 because the McMahon cover edges the O'Neill/Ezquerra montage
Off the top of my head - was that the wrap-around Slaine-lifting-a-horse-with-his-legs cover?

For Best Prog Ever I'm usually tempted to say one of the Judge Death Lives progs (222-228) - maybe 228, with the start of Rogue Trooper as well as Nemesis Book I and Strontium Dog (The Kid Knee Caper). Though of course it does carry Mean Arena.

Yep 222 to 228 is hard to beat.

I would also throw 178 into the mix. And I still have the Dredd badge.

Selecting best prog ever is an impossible task. All I can say is that I see its more periods of up and down and we are in the up period. For me personally this year has been great. Prog 2100 is an awesome jump-on prog.

could anyone please let me know which post-Trifecta stories I need to read, at least in summary? Ta.

By my reckoning you need to read:

Titan Progs 1862 to 1869
Fit Prog 1873
Enceladus - New Life Progs 1924 to 1928
Enceladus: Old Life Progs 1947
Melt Prog 1961 to 1947
Act of Crud Progs 2004 to 2006

and that is what I am planning to do.

I think you should also read The Family Man from Megazines 312 and 313 (it is also in the Trifecta Mega Collection volume).

Not sure if there are others....

sorry couple of mistakes above, now corrected.

Enceladus: Old Life Progs 1940 to 1947

I needed that prog!

Been too long since I actively enjoyed the prog, murky art or impenetrable tales with precious little in Dredd to keep me reading. So a 10-prog backlog built up...

2100 has truly excellent Dredd, Fiends and Brink.

Jake Lynch saved the Anderson & Dark Judges oddity (yet more DJs...???) and the double-length Kingdom was more interesting than I usually find it. I've just thought: lack of puns?-)

Hopefully we're past the doldrums. This is how good the prog can be  :)
