Placebo Judge Dredd Strip
« on: 01 May, 2022, 09:20:16 AM »
I have bought the latest Judge Dredd Case Files #39. It contains a Judge Dredd strip called Placebo which never ran in the prog or the meg. In which publication did this strip come from?
When I die, I want to die like my grandfather who died peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming like all the passengers in his car.

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.

There was also a band Poster Prog featuring 'Funeral For A Friend' which is listed as appearing in this Case Files. Being a hardcore completist I am glad these two have been included, although I always thought the Restricted Files would have been a better fit for them.

We might have a long wait until there's enough material to fill another volume of the Restricted Files.

Does Judge Death kill Brian Molko? I'd read it if so.

Blerugh. Much worse - Placebo and their fans beat up the Dark Judges.

It's pretty telling that Si Spurrier didn't write this under his real name!

So you're sayin that it all breaks down at the role reversal?

As a huge Placebo fan I was baffled that I missed/forgot this until I realised that it was only offered to subscribers
