Rage is a bit rambling - almost picaresque. So I'm going for The Moses Incident, which hardly wastes a page.

That run of single episode appearences from the end of year specials must have been somewhat infuriating when it was in the prog though.

It wasn't quite as bad as it seems in the book; the first one-off, Sick Leave, originally ran between Absalom's first and second series.

Disappointing to see that Defoe is going to be one story short of the whole run. Colin MacNeil's name on the cover means we'll be getting Diehards but no mention of Stewart Kenneth Moore means no Divisor. And with just that 1 story left there's not going to be enough strip left to fill a book :( I guess they could do some mixed vo8lumes to tie up loose ends but I'm not going to bet on it. Shame.

The only way to include it all would have been to have two 'trilogy' books - all the Leigh Gallagher stuff - and then the two final, longer, series in a third volume. Maybe they thought three volumes was too much real estate to take up?

Hmm. Weerd Brothers and Gronks versus Nazis and Stixes. I think Shicklgruber Grab takes this one.

I'm not sure I enjoy either of these stories too much (while acknowledging their craft); both a bit too long and drawn-out. I think I'll go for Outlaw, on balance - it's mired deep in strontinuity, we get to meet lots of interesting stronts, and it's the last chance in the original series that the Gronk gets to shine.

I had a quick look around Barney and can't figure out when / what the computer game in question was, so apologies if my timeline is mixed up...

It was Wardog, and ironically enough the computer game was never released.

The Moses Incident.

Beast of Milton Keynes.

First and foremost sorry for setting this thread off on the wrong foot. I started with a comment and about creation of Dredd and that trivialised what should have been the focus here and I'm sorry for that.

In all fairness, this is a board about 2000AD and Judge Dredd, and the conversation was/is always going to skew that way.

Tharg's strategy finally becomes clear - (hatred of) Skip Tracer is the glue to finally bind the Forum, Megaverse and all other fractured fan groups together.

The Gronk Affair.

Feeling a bit like Dredd in the Cursed Earth at this point. 'These play-offs will not break me...!' 😉

Glum Affair.

Big Bust of '49.
