The Dredd (I am the Law) Mega Top 15 Tournament
« on: 05 August, 2020, 08:09:45 PM »
It is time for the next round of voting power. Who can stand against Dredd the mega man, the face of law and justice? Which of his mega epics will raise and be counted as the mega-of-mega tales? Now brace before you must do cube-time and tell us your top stories.



How does this work

1.   You vote for your top 15 Dredd mega-epics (this is all those Dredd stories that was around for the long haul, 7 and upwards)
2.   You can only make your choice from the list that is supplied below
3.   Points will be allocated accordingly to a strict but fair points structure. The structure is as follows:
1 = 20 points
2 = 16
3 = 13
4 = 12
5 = 11
6 = 10
7 = 9
8 = 8
9 = 7
10 = 6
11 = 5
12 = 4
13 = 3
14 = 2
15 = 1
4.   Remember democracy is still a crime, so citizens this is your only change to cast a vote. You can vote as many times as you want but ONLY your last vote will be deemed valid. Do not waste Justice Departments time or it is the cubes for you.
5.   Any citizen that even have a tough of breaking or not adhering to the rules will be cubed. Thus, be true and honest about your choice.
Old age is the Lord’s way of telling us to step aside for something new. Death’s in case we didn’t take the hint.

The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.

This is going to require some research. Happily I have my Mega Collection to hand.

Ok here goes

1. The Judge Child
2. Tour of Duty
3. Block Mania
4. The Apocalypse War
5. The Day the Law Died
6. The Pit
7. Trifecta
8. Necropolis
9. Day of Chaos
10. The Cursed Earth
11. Origins
12.The Graveyard Shift
13.Beyond the Call of Duty
14.Terror
15.The Scorpion Dance

This is hard and really beyond the top two it could in any order. I am trying to balance impact versus quality.

Some of the earlier stuff is more memorable and had a bigger impact but, taking the rose tinted glasses off isn’t necessarily the best

I am counting Bullet to King Four (Prog 1804) as part of Trifecta.

It was a shame to leave out Emphatically Evil, Total War, Revenge of The Chief Judge’s Man, Ladykiller and the Small House.

I had the relevant volumes to hand.

Also meant to say I include the build up stories e.g. Crime and Punishment, Outlaw and Bring me the Head of Judge Dredd (Progs 86 to 88) in the Day the Law Died

1. Necropolis
2. The Cursed Earth
3. The Pit
4. The Day The Law Died
5. Apocalypse War
6. Tale of the Dead Man
7. Cry of the Werewolf
8. Wilderlands
9. The Judge Child
10. Dead Reckoning
11. The Graveyard Shift
12. Block Mania
13. Destiny's Angels
14. Oz
15. Mechanismo - Body Count

The oldschoolness of my selections is due to my mighty backlog. I bought the Tour of Duty and Day of Chaos collections when they came out, but I haven't read them yet. I'm on Case Fules 27 at the moment.  Necropolis still demanded I fill this out. :D I'll catch up soon, honest.

I notice Mechanismo Body Count isn't on the list, 7 eps from the Meg, so you could replace that with say Dredd Angel if you prefer.

Strange how quickly you can work when you face cube time.

I actually wanted to start this over last weekend so everything was already setup to go.

Quite right selecting a top Dredd thrill is for me even more difficult than selecting a top prog thrill

More fondness for newer epics that are fresher in the mind than those from the earlier run which, although I recognise the names, I didn't read at the time. But Necropolis I have read to Death.
