1. Guatemala
2. Machine Law
3. The Fall of Barbarbara Grimm.

Hard to choose between the first two; I agree that Guatemala could have had a less rushed conclusion but the Hershey scenes and the best bad guy in years did it for me.

The Fall... was a lovely bit of old-fashioned, citizen's-POV Dredd. More of this kind of thing please.

I think I can see a pattern here....

Righty-o! Prog 2162 & Meg 415 have both arrived & been devoured Down Under so here is Stevie's pick:

1) The World According to Chimpsky by Kenneth Niemand & PJ Holden (PROG 2131)   
2) Guatemala by John Wagner & Colin MacNeil (PROG 2150-2157)
3) The Harvest by Michael Carroll & Nick Percival (PROG 2158-2161)

Bump! This is your 36 hour warning to have your say in picking the 3rd best Dredd story of 2019. Just be grateful Wagner only did 2 this year! No, wait, that's never right...

Polls close at midnight-ish tomorrow, Saturday 18 Jan.

I'll throw out my own votes before the results:

1. Guatemala. Wagner does comedy robot villains and a heavy dose of pathos, delivered via some serious art from MacNeil. Unassailable.
2. The Long Game. Torn between this and Barbarbara Grimm storywise and between Sexton and Dyer artwise, but inna final analysis I preferred the world-building in The Long Game on both counts. 
3. Chimpsky.  It stars a chimp, the rendering of Dredd's speech is very clever, the art is stunning and there are great puns afoot. That's old school magic.
