There's also that fun moment early in The Judge Child Quest when Dredd is working a pincer movement against the brotherhood of trash: him on the inside of the camp, his bike on the outside.

The lawmaster approaches the front gate, guarded by two monks who start taking the piss:

Monk 1 : HALT! Heck, that sounds dumb. How do ya threaten a machine?
Monk 2: Maybe we outta speak to it in bike...PHUT! PHUT! PHUT! That means STOP!
Monk 1 : ha ha. VROOM! VROOM! That means scram or we fire!

the bike puts a bullet in each monk, accompanied by a lovely Tom Frame BLAM! BLAM!

Lawmaster : That means DROP DEAD. Thank you.

That was my first thought too.  The only story where the Lawmaster gets sarky with Dredd.

The ONLY story?

General / Fake Britain Map

This just popped up in my socials feed today. A map of fictional places in Great Britain. Trumptonshire, Fulchester and HMP Slade of course but a few Dreddverse locations too.

related article with an updated map here

As incredible as Absalom, my vote has to go to Strontium Dog.

But I'm fairly confident that had Harry ever gone up against Malak Brood, the inspector would have got the better of the master of the black arts.

Judge Maitland so much more to offer than Cassandra's spooky hokum

You could argue with The Bean Counter, Carry the Nine and The Hard Way, Maitland already has her own (ongoing) series.

Aren't all Slaine stories narrated by Ukko? Does that technically make them Ukkp stories? I might be splitting hairs.

I really enjoyed the one off Wulf Sternhammer story from the 2019 Carlos Tribute Special, so my vote goes to the big man.

The Lethal Laziness of Lobelia Loam is a formidable story from Tharg the Mighty that still holds it's power but come on

...it has to be Ichabod

Got my copy of this yesterday and overall I'm delighted with it. Yes, the repro of Father Earth is very dark in places but that's a minor concern given the missing original pages.

A decent sized book, with a good heft and impressive paper quality - Finger of Suspicion and Old Pal's Act look and feel particularly excellent.

First time in forever that I've re-read In The Bath...great fun.

I think there is a limited list of sequels that are not just worthy of the original, but actually better:

The Road Warrior > Mad Max
Hour of the Gun > Gunfight at the OK Corral
Bride of Frankenstein > Frankenstein
Toy Story 2 > Toy Story
Sanjuro > Yojimbo
The Empire Strikes Back > New Hope
The Godfather Part II > The Godfather
After The Thin Man > The Thin Man
From Russia With Love > Dr No (does this count as a sequel?)
Lethal Weapon 2 > Lethal Weapon
Police Story 2 > Police Story
*The Wrath of Khan > Star Trek The Motion Picture

* bonus points for being a superior sequel to the ST episode Space Seed

If you want me to pick one from this list, I will go for the film that took the kernel of an idea from the original and expanded it in the most interesting way: Mad Max 2 : The Road Warrior

Just how big is it, like compared to a trade or a Marvel OSHC, or something like a Hellboy Library Edition?

I'm not sure Mike's response does this justice...the size is gargantuan:

Dredd is great. I don’t think it’s too verbose. Squint and you could be reading a classic Wagner/Bolland strip here.

For me the look of this episode was closer to 80s era Cliff Robinson. Those bar punks could have stepped right out of West Side Rumble.

On another note, I loved that framed portrait on the apartment wall of his dear departed droid pals from the previous story.

Prices are starting to become more sensible as more listings appear. A Place In Space have put their copies up for £0.99 plus P&P.

thanks. Just ordered mine, along with FCBD 2020 which I'd missed.

Great episode.

There is some original Outcasts artwork for sale on Cam Kennedy's website, but since nothing is currently for sale this might be a moot point

Hope every one enjoys the goodies today.

My local comic book shop has told me they do NOT have the 2000ad offering so...if anyone can pick up a spare I'd be happy to pay for P&P.

I like it as it is:

pretty fun pot luck every month: it's great having the encyclopedia in chapters but I also love having the DeMarco PI and the Judge Manners stories complete in collected mini editions.

The original outing was as succinct a piece of storytelling as you could ever wish for; The Return of...(crass racism aside) expanded the world beautifully; Revenge of...was both weird and charming.

Combined with one of the greatest covers of all time:

"You wanna end up in a tin, Sardini?"

Gold medal goes to The Taxidermist
