Prog / Re: Prog 1811 Moonshot!

Whenever Dredd's taken a bad knock in previous adventures I have to confess that I've always been pretty cynically disdainful about it - "oh, he's top billing, there's no way they'd kill him off.", that sort of thing.

But this time... chaps, things really and honestly look dicey for him here. It's going to take more than a spin in the speedheal to fix this...!

Hershey buys it and Dredd feels like he has to take on the job.

You know, that's actually quite credible, particularly when we remember Hershey giving Dredd an Interview Without Coffee a couple of weeks ago which could easily construe some foreshadowing. For over fifty years Dredd has been a latter-day Praetorian ensuring the sanctity of the Law when its practitioners go astray - but when he is, finally, after several near-misses, finally installed in the Chief Judge's seat, he is put to the ultimate test, one far more dangerous than any gunfight or face-off with Judge Death... is Joseph I-Am-The-Law Dredd truly incorruptible? Or has he just never been tempted before?

Exactly! That's what I got from the interaction between Dredd and Hershey. Total foreshadowing.

The way I see it, there's only one way this can go : Hershey buys it and Dredd feels like he has to take on the job.

Letting the B team handle that kind of development would be unprecedented in Wagner world.

It would fit with what he said about letting other writers run with the new setup. He said at the Glasgow Comic Con this year that he didn't know if he would write another Dredd.

Hey,

Long time reader. I want to chat in the Prog thread as the current stuff is just sooo good. Any chance I can get permissions?

I've been reading the Prog for 20 odd years. Feeling compelled to post because of how great The Cold Deck is!
