I love the Regenes as an idea, I like the execution a lot of the time, though as with the Prog, its not always successful but it needs to continue as a way to attract new readership to replace us aging ol' relics, but beyond that to push the comic into new and interesting places. It improves the diversity in thrills, characters and creator and all in all is a massive positive.

In the real world I doubt the economics would justify it becoming its own thing, at least for now so I'd keep things as they are. In this fantasy world of a vote I'm happy to be able to forget all that and go

  Yes, keep the regen prog but depending on economics make it is own publication

plus the WHSmith comment. Its great other comics have now ditched the plastic 'throw aways' from their covers in line with 2K ;-)

There's a couple of panels missing from the end of the story. Chopra walks into the next room where Dredd is standing with arms crossed.

"He buy it?" asks Dredd.

"He bought it, comrade," replies Chopra.

Its telling that I immediately could think of a couple of names about who the likely "owner" is who is unwilling to return the art.

FWIW, I'm told it's most definitely not the most obvious suspect.

He didn't mean you DDD! relax

cheap shot Jim.

A sketch he did for Dredd although he never had any published prog work:

wow what could have been...

Got to agree with the majority of this thread...the Dredd wasn't a game changer, or doesn't appear to be, 30 years later and its had no impact that we can see?

I thought there would have been more made of the Sov Dredd than a quick execution by sludge monster. And would a Dredd clone have been a loyal Sov? that interests me!

Hard to believe the Sovs would stop at one too.

The rest of the Prog is going great guns for me just now, next week off, then back to the action!!

-   I can remember the days when it was either 9¼-inch or 8½-inches...not to mention the Girth and Heft.

That sounds like a Grennie droid duo..

Tricky. The characterization and story structure in Ten-Seconders is probably academically superior, but I didn't really get into it until the last series. The Helltrekkers, for all it's maudlin schmaltz hangs easily on the disaster-movie framing, and the core concept has become part of Dreddverse lore.

Or, to quote myself:

Although this tale, heavy on the melodrama, proved risible for a portion of the readership, the concept of Helltreks and radwagons became a staple motif of Dreddverse lore. Often seen in the background (in, say, Alabammy Blimps, and as the denouement of the modern classic The Heart Is a Lonely Klegg Hunter), or as the kernel of a wider investigation (as in The Raggedy Man and Ratfink), the concept was also used as the core structure for the Missionary Man fable The Promised Land.

Both stories for me held more promise than they delivered, almost veered to 10 2nders as i think it would make a great PRIME series... while HT would make a great TWD spin off.

Just throwing it out there that I'm really enjoying the prog at the moment - it's in the pipe, five by five - no damp squibs in the mix.

If I had to rank 'em, I'd do it like this, probably:

1. Brink
2. Intestinauts
3. Fiends
4. Hope
5. Judge Dredd

while I would flip that...but agree 5x5

-   Too generic

It reminds me of those stories when a famous writer is asked to 'do sci-fi' and then trots out the equivalent of 'stuck in a video game' troupe. 

Elevator troupe pitch: Bladerunner meets Harry on the High Rock

Could be the first person he's spoken to since being incarcerated?
