Lawman of the Present:
Hello all!

I've seen a few topics lately I'd be keen to join discussion on, and thought I'd make an account at last.

I know the Dredd 2012 marketing was given a hard time by some, but I have to say, it was the movie poster which grabbed my attention and the jumping-on point of IDW's concurrent issue #1 which first got me into the character.

I had passing awareness of the character beforehand and knew IDW's wasn't 'proper' Dredd (I have a vague memory of ten-year-old me being intrigued by the sight of 2000 AD at the newsagents, but it was always on the top shelf, and I was never quite sure if it was an actual comic or some form of teen+ magazine which used cartoon mascots, as they often seemed to do in the 1990s - a bait and switch if you ask me! Suffice to say, I never took the plunge).

I liked what I read nevertheless and promptly began with Case Files 01, and have never looked back :) My obsessive tendencies have taken hold and I'm now a die-hard Dreddverse fan, currently on a complete canon readthrough and putting together a full chronology for every story, including the various expanded media like the novels and audio dramas.

What else can I say? The worldbuilding and long-form storytelling are second to none. I haven't quite made the jump to AD proper with the other series, mainly because I know what I'm like and I really don't have space for a fifth bookcase!

I mean there's always digital if you can enjoy your comics that way as there is a host of wonderful stuff in the rest of the Prog. Whatever you decide lovely to have you onboard and have fun.

broodblik:
Yes, Dredd is the pilar of 2000AD but you are missing out on some awesome stories. The nice thig about digital is that you can purchase all the progs from 2003 onwards which will give you some happy reading hours. But also welcome on the board

Trooper McFad:
Welcome aboard and enjoy the banter
