I'm the same.  I'm looking at the Book Palace who have some listed as well
Cheers. Never heard of these guys before but ordered one from them. Except, the only option for shipping outside the UK is air courier for an additional £35! Oh well, another nice parcel for my mum to keep in the cupboard until whenever the hell they start to have flights back to Scotland.

Just a general question related to Johnny Alpha stories: after the final solution what was the next Alpha story to be publish, was it "The Kreeler Conspiracy"?
Unless you count Judgement Day, then yes. Full listings here: Strontium Dog on Barney.

No contest here. There were a lot of enjoyable stories in the "new" Strontium Dog canon but only one or two that can stand with the best of the OG (OD?) strips. Blood Moon is far and away the best of them. A return to the righteous fury of Rage or Portrait of a Mutant and maybe even a hint of authorial politics seeping onto the page which would be vanishingly unusual for Wagner. I remember at the time expecting this one to lead to more but John knows best!

As well as being a fun story, Roadhouse is the only relaunch Strontium Dog story to be published in glorious monochrome, as nature intended. A triumphant winner.

Somehow, I totally missed the volume 3 announcement and now it's sold out. How will the poor spines look now with a sad little paperback in there? Bollocks!

304 pages, apparently, which is pretty chunky. I don’t envy whoever had to put that together. Compiling the best of the master’s stories must have been insanely tricky.
It's America, reprinted 2.5 times…
It's The Best of John Wagner's Judge Dredd, not The Best of John Wagner's Dreddworld Spinoffs. Which is a shame, as otherwise Al's Baby would be in there.

In celebration of the original Mega-City master, this collects the very best of John Wagner's Judge Dredd stories!
This is going to need to be a big book!

Judgement Day*   26
It's twenty episodes including the six in the Meg, not 20 plus 6.

Definitely one of those rose tinted case where the glasses are beginning to drop. I remember 10 years ago you would be driven out of town for daring to say any Donner movie was a bit rubbish.
I think with Goonies you needed to see it as a kid. I didn't.

Bit rubbish isn’t it?
Never seen it.
Wouldn’t bother if I was you.

And isn't there a weird inconsistency with Schenker?

He's referenced in the Cadet Anderson stories as being head of Psi Division, despite that making no chronological sense - is that what you were thinking of?
I thought it was something more radical like he’d been killed off then they just forgot about it. However, I think you’re right and I was just blowing bubbles.

Surely only currently beaten by Dredd, Hershey and Anderson in terms of longest-appearing Judges still extant?

And isn't there a weird inconsistency with Schenker?

Which I wasn't on holiday right now so I could properly join in with this one!

Tough draw. One of these has written half of my personal All Time Top Ten Thrills. The other has written some alright if disjointed Andersons, one good Dredd and  half of a mildly amusing nerd-riffing comedy strip which wasn't as good as Bec & Kawl.

Smith 5 - 0 Beeby

The available date (and thus publication year) of any given Prog or Meg is the cover date of the previous issue + 1. However, for the purposes of "best of year X" polls, the year end Prog should always be considered as part of the following (cover date) year as usually a bunch of new stories start in that issue.
