Perhaps obvious, but Skizz is also influenced by Alan Bleasdale’s show Boys from the Blackstuff: in particular Cornelius seems based on Yosser Hughes (played by Bernard Hill, now famous as King Theoden).

Yosser also makes a one off appearance in Leviathan!:

The publisher is listed as "Solaris".

That's odd, or maybe even concerning. Is Rebellion not going to publish its own stuff? Has Abnett/Elson got the rights to publish elsewhere? Or is it a mistake?

Anyone got any more info on this?

EDIT: Scratch that! Quick Google reveals, to me at least, that Rebellion owns Solaris. D'oh!  :-[

Not really fair to blame the shitty 90s digital colouring on Alex, though… mostly, that's Alan Craddock. Mostly.
OK. I'll pass most of my hatred on to Alan Craddock then.  >:D

Really enjoyed that. I had forgotten his stuff from The Pit. I know there were many reasons - mainly time, but I found his early stuff truly terrible! So many frames lacking in any detail, only drawing the backs of heads. Hated the early Photoshop effects as well. He really did show an amazing upward path in quality. Most of his covers are brilliant.

I don't own these, and they have probably been seen before, but I thought it was pretty cool to come across some original 2000AD art at the Sci-Fi Exhibition in Rotterdam. The Nemesis cover looks so much better in black and white! :

Man, that's a lot of repetition in only 4 posts!

... The "2000 AD" font has no relation to the logo to the left, and it seems odd (to me) that "2000 AD" is mentioned twice.
I'm pretty sure that mini logo to the left of the logotype is to ensure the name is still visible even when half hidden by other magazines on the shelves of the newsagent. It also adds to the brand unity as the same logo is on the spines/covers of tpb's.

1st: 2065 - I like seeing Joe on his knees...
2nd: 2089 - JD and monkeys, you gotta buy that surely?
3rd: 2092 - I'm not seeing enough love for Death around here.

honourable mention goes to 2086 for the gratuitous boob shot.

1st: 392 - fantastic, dynamic, 'movie' shot.
2nd: 402 - encapsulates Lawless in one image.
3rd: 397 - if you didn't know who Devlin was, you do now.

I'm not seeing much love for Digests in this thread, looks like I'm not alone. I wonder if anyone from Rebellion reads this...  ::)

If Frank's contents are right, and I think they probably are, there's a lot of very good stuff in there...
Oh no, I agree. Just an odd combination. Wastelands and Ghost Town would make a good Meg Floppy. Would be the right size then as well!

Guessing from the combination of creators involved:

Williams & Guerra's The Man Comes Around *
Edginton & Coleby's 300 Seconds **
Grant & Dowling's Dead End ***
Wagner & Taylor's Wastelands ****
....
* The Horse!
** The one where Dredd's footprints are worn into the same spot where he stands for 5 min each day
*** Actually an Anderson story
**** Actually a Scooby Doo story


Cheers for that. Sounds like a pretty wacky collection if right. I think I'll pass anyway!

Well, I don't want Rebellion not to make any money but I would rather these digests weren't a success. Also, the autist in me likes my shelf to line up - I don't know where to put my Hamlyn books as it is.  ::)

Ghost Town isn't a single story or series of interconnected stories. It's a random sample of some recent(ish) Dredd stories with an Anderson tale thrown in.

I was getting a little wound up at the thought the next GN would only be Digest sized but I don't actually even know which stories are going in it! Ghost Town, obviously. But what else?

Quote from: Frank
(although I have been wrong before, once, in the nineties).
Ooh, do tell!

I don't think I would ever buy a digest size TPB, even at £7, they are just too small and the art looks lost - I don't see the point.
And that is exactly my point. I'd love to know if these things actually make any more money than a standard TPB or whether it is just a case of Digest or nothing.

General / Digest vs TPB. Why so small?

Hi all,

Thought I’d make my first post to ask if I’m in a minority of one, or if anyone else doesn’t like the new ‘Digest’ size collected Dredds.

I haven’t kept that up-to-date with the latest GN novel releases but when I heard Mandroid was coming out, I thought I’d get it straight away - only to discover it was a poxy Digest size. I missed that it had been released as a TPB back in 2007, but I went out of my way to pick up a 2nd-hand copy of that edition anyway because bigger is better right?

Anyway, now I hear that the next collected GN, Judge Dredd: Ghost Town, is only going to be released in the Digest size. Well, sod that. The standard Case File sized books are already smaller than the actual Prog, why is Rebellion shrinking them even more? Even the Meg floppies are bigger than that.

What with there being a 15 year wait between Prog and Case File release, I’m going to have to start thinking about getting some Progs printed and bound myself, 'cos I'm not interested in pocket sized collections.

Am I missing something? Is Ghost Town coming out as TPB first, or are Rebellion telling us that there isn't any money in the collected novels any more?
