Those special editions were all fantastic, a really good mix of stories, and my first introduction to Strontium Dog.

The Sov-Dredd did seem to be a bit of a 'throw away' (sorry) plot angle and not fully thought through.
I don't see that. The whole story was building up to something along those lines from the first episode. Wintertime said he had some dirt on Dredd from the beginning.

As for the Judda, they wanted to take over the city for themselves. It wouldn't be in their interest to help someone else do it. Nor would the Sovs spare them, knowing what their agenda was.

You know FF 11 is by the same authors and set in the same world?

Sound like an annoying problem. Mine are packed in quite tight, space being at a premium, so they haven't had room to bend. You could try storing yours flat for a while and see if they straighten out.

Also I'm not convinced that children really want to spend their free time reading comics about school.

Harry Potter?
D'oh!

I pretty much agree with everything Funt Solo and Indigo Prime said. I didn't really enjoy this prog. But I did think the art in the Future Shock and Lowborn High were very good.

Netflix has Better Call Saul, which is brilliant. Probably not for everyone though.

A great write up as usual!

As a kid, I found the modern day setting very off-putting, although once you enter the house it stops being relevant. I hardly remember this book at all now, so reading it again should be interesting. I might still give book 9 a try first.

Interesting point about the randomly drugged wine. I'm going to assume that's down to the theme of giving the reader choices taking priority over plot or common sense. (But in the spirit of finding in-plot explanations for apparent errors, maybe a feature of the Satanists' evil religion is you have to give your victims a sporting chance?)
