It's a dying business.

I can dig it.


Mmmmmm, cryptic. Me like it but what about jokers to the left.......

Jokers to the left, threes are wild and Spades are trumps.


I am a poet and I didn't even know it.

You rhyme all the time.  (3 across, 2,5)

more in-Academy stories with classroom shenhaigans, and less mucking about with criminal sin the outside world. It's a side of Dreddworld we rarely ever see, and I think leaning into the brainwashing techniques that must go on could be super interesting.

Academy Tales is a great idea.  I'd love to see that, though:
1. I think tales indoctrination etc would probably interest me more than it would the intended kid audience, and
2. Now I've called it Academy Tales, I can't help imagining the theme tune for it.
("Academy Tales! Woo-oo!
Every day they're out there making
 Academy Tales! Woo-oo!"

On the question of artist, I'm kicking myself that it's only just sunk in that it's Roger Langridge on Pandora Perfect.  I'm sure I noticed originally, then forgot.  Langride has done some really good funny comics (e.g. his work on The Muppets).  If you want the Dredd comic to be really silly shenanigans then he could probably do a good job both on script and art.  As others have said here, however, I'd much rather Cadet Dredd was tonally closer to 'real' Dredd so they actually seemed to be the same character.

If you want funny comic hijinx then have it in another strip (like Pandora Perfect etc).  Even the likes of Buster, Whoopee, Cor! etc back in the day would have an action strip like The Leopard from Lime Street in them.  Ultimately therefore my answer is Keep Dredd as the edge-of-your-seat action strip and leave the 'hilarity' to some of the other strips.


I just want to take a moment to acknowledge the heart of a poet that beats inside Broodblik.

Or, if not a poet, one of those guys that sets cryptic crossword clues.

Gotta agree with Funt - as a kid, I always found those characters put in to cater for my age to be really patronising.

Oh man, this.  If it was the 90s Dredd Kid would be slouching around with a rocket-powered skateboard (the Lawboard) under one arm, his pants hanging down and his helmet on backwards.

Again, what works works. Appropriateness is the key.

Yes, with ebb and flow.  Not every episode of every story has to be the shot glass of rocket fuel.  I read some of these stories, especially when collected and the weekly titles are filed off, and I feel I can't breathe sometimes.  I find I actually am holding my breath and can't find a place to stop.

Just tell me a story I do not care about the length


I miss when the Cursed Earth was a terrifying hellscape rather than a smattering of quiet(ish) Wild West villages.

This.  Though I like the frontiersman "we're going to conquer it anyway" attitude as they try and settle down and raise bison amongst plains filled with tarantulas bigger than houses.

Mea culpa, I was going from memory.

I dug out the book to have a look.  The first bit is meant to be 11/9 (1 ONE IX), the date he 'died':
