General / Fake Britain Map
« on: 23 June, 2022, 12:42:44 PM »
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.

General / Class of '79
« on: 13 January, 2022, 01:35:09 PM »
Inspired by a discussion on another forum thread, I recently took a second look at the Garth Ennis story Raider. It got me thinking how many graduates from the famous Class of '79 we have encountered over the years, and just what percentage turned out to be, by varying degrees, wrong 'uns?

Here is the best I can come up with, in chronological order.



Alvin
First appearance - prog 2
Current status - Dead (killed by Whitey).




Joseph Dredd
First appearance - prog 2
Current status - still going strong after all these years.



Steele
First appearance - 1978 annual
Current status - Hypnotised by criminal Igor Sansky, he murdered four judges before being killed by Dredd.



Rico Dredd
First appearance - prog 30
Current status - Turned criminal; served 20 years on Titan. Killed in a shootout with his brother on his return to MC-1.




Gibson
First appearance - prog 34
Current status - adopted a criminal alter ego as Mutie The Pig. Unmasked then killed by Dredd.



Wagner
First appearance - prog 35 (first shown Prog 811)
Current status - Unknown

Hunt
First appearance - prog 35 (first shown Prog 811)
Current status - Unknown




Karl Raider
First appearance - prog 810
Current status - handed his badge in 20 years after graduation. Turned vigilante. Killed in a showdown with Dredd.



Kray
First appearance - Prog 811
Current status - Unknown

Peters
First appearance - Prog 811
Current status - Unknown



Bart Kimble
First appearance - prog 2006
Current status - Titan? Confessed to misuse of funds (also possibly unjudicial liasions).



West
First appearance - Prog 2006
Current status - Unknown

Dykson?
First appearance - Prog 2006
Current status - Unknown



Nestor
First appearance - prog 1652
Current status - Dead (suicide).

If there are any others I've missed, I'd love to know.

Any Battle fans in the South West?

I popped into Forbidden Planet Bristol at the weekend and discovered they have four or five hardback copies of Garth Ennis Presents Battle Classics Vol. 2 (Fighting Mann) for the ridiculously low / clearance price of £2.99

Suggestions / Fiends of the Eastern Front GN
« on: 19 August, 2021, 05:15:46 PM »
Any rumours / news of a second Fiends of the Eastern Front collected edition?

I own the first one which pairs the original ten parter with Stalingrad from MacNeil and Bishop and absolutely love it.

Alongside last year's run in the prog, 1812, the various special one-offs and even Fiends of the Western Front there should more than enough material to fill pages.

...and you know there is an audience.
