Also your first paragraph is wrong too.

Actually I'm being unfair: you may be thinking of the abolition of the "sale in market overt" rule by the Sale of Goods (Amendment) Act 1994, which depending on how the art was sold could indeed be relevant. We don't know enough about how he got it.

It's less complicated than you're making it. If the company returned the art to the artist then that's a gift, and they own it. In any case, it's not a defence to theft to say the person you stole it from didn't own it. You can steal something from someone who just has possession of it.

Also your first paragraph is wrong too.

The Art of Kenny Who? and the Batman / Lobo crossovers complete the set.

I'm torn. The two strips are so completely different that I can't compare them. They're both good stories and I like them both. I will abstain.

And why such a problem that Dredd killed one?

I think Winterton's point was that the clone wasn't a Sov, or at least Dredd had no evidence that he was, which would mean that he murdered a Mega-City judge.

Night of the Necromancer is brilliant!

(I've also heard that Howl of the Werewolf was voted best FF book by fans, although I've not read it myself.)

Artistic licence. Dredd doesn't really wear a new uniform in every story, it's just different artists' depictions of the same hardware.

It's a rule of equity: a "bona fide purchaser for value without notice" has good title.

They might have a legal right to own it though. If they didn't know it was stolen, and paid a fair price for it, it is legally theirs (if they bought it in England and Wales anyway).

Morally, they should give or sell it back. But there's no way to make them.

Good write-up, Jimbo.

BB, you can always use spoiler tags!

But taken on it's merits as just a Dredd 9-parter then it's great!
If you think that's good, wait til you see the 10-parter version!

Exactly. In a story about the Dark Judges, he's unequivocally a hero. In a story about democrats, he's very much the villain. There are degrees in between.

I just find it all very cliched and hackneyed, like something from the 90s.

Of the later books, Master of Chaos, Spectral Stalkers, Slaves of the Abyss, Siege of Sardath, and Stealer of Souls stand out.

I would also recommend the novel The Trolltooth Wars.
