Judge Dredd: The Complete Case Files 35 -  Paperback, 304 pages, 14th May 2020

ANYTHING GOES IN SIN CITY!

The floating multi-story metropolis of illegal delights known as “Sin City” has anchored outside Mega-City one, and Dredd has seemingly been sent aboard to keep what order can be kept on a lawless floating city. His real task? Locate Ula Danser, the De-Megification terrorist determined to destroy the Mega-Cities at any cost! But Danser isn’t working alone - Dredd’s old enemy Orlok is coming to meet her, and he’s carrying a cargo intended to pay back everything Dredd did to East-Meg one - with interest!

Let's hope they fix up the double-credit for Wagner, deserving as it is...

Two John Wagners explains The Satanist and The Ecstasy. Thankfully, the John Wagner who wrote those doesn't work for Tharg anymore.

Zombies

Garth Ennis unexpectedly crowned 'most original Dredd writer.'

(Except 'do something with zombies' was John Wagner's contribution to the epic. Never mind.)

You're right, of course. Zombies are the threat* in Judgement Day, not the villain.

Let's open up another category of Wizard, and put Judge Child and City Of The Damned in there too.


* If I was being consistent, I'd either have listed Call-Me-Kenneth and Judd as the villains of Robot War and Oz or Virus as the villain of both Sin City and Day Of Chaos.

For Oz you could say 'Other Judges / Dredd...'?

Are The Pit and Doomsday the only epics where the villain is just 'some regular criminal guy'?

Roy of the Rovers: The Best of the 1970s: The Tiger Years - Hardcover, 118 pages, 28th May 2020

The best comic strips from the golden age of Roy of the Rovers.

The seventies was a very turbulent time in Britain. Following on from the optimism of the sixties, the country faced a decade of strikes and power cuts. Luckily for the fans of Melchester Rovers, Roy Race and his loyal time mates provided great moments of glory for their fans, starting with European Cup final win in 1973 in the year that the club celebrated its 50th anniversary.

It was the decade in which footballers became real superstars – a time when Melchester goalkeeper Charlie Carter had to choose between staying at the club or perusing a burgeoning career as a pop singer.  And it was a period when Roy Race truly cemented himself as the heart, soul and brain of the club by taking on the role of player manager.

King’s Reach: John Sanders’ Twenty-Five Years at the Top of Comics - Paperback, 9th July 2020

From within King’s Reach Tower on the banks of the Thames, John Sanders masterminded the output of Britain’s biggest comics publisher over twenty-five years. Overseeing the launch of hugely popular titles like Tammy, Battle and the revolutionary 2000 AD, Sanders fought corporate battles to expand the UKs’ comics output, faced down the government and the media in censorship battles and ultimately came up against a crooked business tycoon.

Leading an industry that at its peak sold 10 million comics per week, Sanders launched over a hundred new titles, faced massive social change and strove to keep comics relevant to generation after generation. With artists employed across the globe to service the voracious appetite of readers, Sanders was in the hot seat for battles with his creative workforce and saw changing standards and industry disputes. In this memoir he reveals, for the first time, his story and that of the medium that would go on to dominate global culture.
