For my money, Return of the Taxidermist ties with Swimming in Blood as best Dreddworld story the Megazine ever ran. Hell, it's knocking on the door of Song of the Surfer and The Dead Man, the near-untouchable giants of the broader Dreddworld genre. Some of the most exquisite art of Ian Gibson's career, and an absolute tour de force of inspired, hilarious lunacy from John Wagner - yet one that still retains an emotional core. Just about as good as it gets.

It's definitely some of the best character work I've seen so far.

Feikki, for cross-referencing help, Douglas Wolk has two great lists of uncollected stories on his site under the posts Housekeeping #1 and Housekeeping #2. http://dreddreviews.blogspot.com/
I've found the 2000AD shop very helpful so far.

Love a spreadsheet - thanks for sharing sintec!

Now worries - the Mega collection data was copied from another boarder (I'm afraid I can't remember who now).  I've been extending it as the Ultimate Collection continues.

It’s May 1987. It’s time to get iniquitous with the infernal, and unseemly with the unearthly! Nemesis the Warlock: Volume Three is now up on the Thrillshots blog.

It's July 1987. Dredd takes on the superhero genre in an Extra Thrillshot: The Cape and Cowl Crimes.
