On the latest ECBT2000ad podcast Pat Mills is interviewed and while he's coy about who the new Slaine artist is, he does say that it’s a South American artist that is well established in comics and was eager to do Slaine.

Leonardo Manco I'd say. Which would be terrific.

Maybe even in black and white...

Leigh S. That long post of yours is terrific. Nail on the head time about some modern storytelling. I agree about Alan Moore giving the big reveals while still keeping you in a cohesive world he’s built and of course John Wagner was doing that for years before him. And still is. Small House was stunningly drawn and a page turner. And I enjoyed it week to week which says a lot for it as some thrills I now save to read I one go as they don’t seem to be built in weekly instalments. Maybe it was designed to be read in the moment and not thought too much about after. I see the Next instalment in John Wagner’s Mechanismo story is about to kick off in the new year, which of course has a Dredd v Hershey element too. Chances of it referencing Small House are low I’d say. We have 4 or 5 different Dredds at the moment. Alas. But then ‘This is my house (character)’ :P My two cents. JB

654 for me too. Wagner & Ezquerra Dredd. Song of the surfer. Dead Man. Horned God. Zenith phase 3. Wow.

Well if there was ever going to be a last page of Dredd this would do. It had me in tatters when I read it first...

The idea of Dredd continuity seems to have ended with Day Of Chaos. Each writer now has their own Dredd world. The reason we talk of Dredd continuity in the first place is because it was handled for so many years basically by one writer. I read Dredd now like any other thrill not the must-read-first the minute it hits the mat on a Saturday morning (unless it’s a Wagner script of course). During Day of Chaos if I was away with work I would buy the digital version cos I needed to see what happened next. The best of times.

Thanks so much guys. There was differing page counts on websites but I knew ye would know the craic. Off I go to oxfam so.

Hi. Quick question. Is there any difference in the 3 Complete Alan Moore Future Shock collections that rebellion have released? ie. the one with the foolscap and sticky note cover, the Henry Flint cover, and the shadowy Moore face cover.

Thanks a mill. JB

David Bishop said recently in the great interview he gave on the Working Comics podcast that because he had a Wagner Dredd every issue he knew he had at least one terrific story and of course in this anthology that's 20% of the work done already. That unfortunately is not the case any more. Interesting that the perceived 'Dark Age' of the 90s corresponds to John Wagner not being the regular Dredd writer and I feel that this is what's happening again. That first story every prog should give you a buzz for the rest of it. The problem recently is that Dredd just hasn’t been very good. You can argue whatever about the character being out of the city, stories not referencing each other etc. but in my opinion they just haven't been good stories. I'd be all for resting Dredd every now and again in the prog. Never going to happen of course. But something does need to happen. 2000ad should lead with its best strip unfortunately that hasn’t been Dredd for quite a while. My heart has been sinking each week after reading it so I'm going to start skipping it when I see certain creators attached. That way I won't have to see him surfing a feckin dog again. Whither Dredd goes, so goes the prog.

I punched the air when I saw that Strontium Dog is coming back. Something to look forward to.

Just my 2 euro.

Is torture Garden definitely going to be written by John Wagner, does anyone know?

Classifieds / Judge Dredd in America, 1991 2000ad books edition for sale.

Hi guys. I have a 1st edition Judge Dredd America collection for sale. This is the 2000ad books collection from '91 so has the first story only and is a bit oversized so that stunning MacNiel art looks the business. It's paperback and has some creases on the cover (see pics). This is a double in me collection so I thought I'd offer it out.

£6 inc. UK Postage.

Cheers and happy new year to all.

Judge Dredd surfing on the back of a dead dog. Unintended or not, that's as apt a metaphor for the state of the current iteration of Dredd as I can think of.

Back of the net with that comment. Jumped the shark? Nope. Worse. Surfed the dog. Very poor stuff.
