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':

That looks good.  I wish they'd announced it sooner.  I pre-ordered the standard copy when it was listed in March because I got a discount code.  I might see if I can cancel it...

Kill the City, not Dredd. Slowly strip everything away until only Dredd is left; the Last Judge, all alone in the lifeless ruins where justice, finally, prevails.

The sentence is ... death?

I just love the madness of how many 'clues' there are to Paul's death.

I have a book on it ("The Walrus was Paul", I think) and my favourite has to be that if you hold a mirror horizontally across the drum kit on the cover Sgt Pepper, the half you see and the reflection really look like it says "HE DEAD" with a diamond/arrow shape in between the two words pointing up to Paul.

Or:

An epic story where Dredd is killed in the line of duty early on, but then the Chief Justice reveals (in the last panel of that week's prog) that the moment has been prepared for.

In the next instalment he explains to the Council (and the readers) that the Dredd we have been following for years isn't the real Dredd we started with in prog 1 but has already been swapped somewhere along the line for a back-up clone.

We know Justice dept has multiple Dredd clones on the streets.  Now we learn they put one aside when they realised how useful it was just having the perps know there was a 'Dredd' out there, somewhere, AND ALSO already used the option.  They swapped the real Dredd out when he was injured in (some story we can make into a subtle off-ramp).  The Justice dept then bring the real Dredd out of cryo, where he's been for 15+ years and is thus 15 or more years younger.

Thus instead of 2000AD having to solve the problem of an old, aged Dredd, and how to legitimise his successor, we "actually" get the real, younger, "legitimate" Dredd.

YES!! Exactly what I've been asking for, thank you Tharg! Really hoping this is hardback, same as the Starlord years.

I'm sure it will be.  It looks like they are going to make me buy all the stories again, in hardback.

Then later again when Rebellion decided to colour everything and put it out again.

General / Hivemind query - anyone recognise this story?

This was posted on Reddit.  I thought someone here might be able to help:

“I started reading 2000ad and Judge Dredd as a kid in around 1990, when a friend at school brought along a couple of progs and an annual from '86 (I think). Immediately fell in love with it. In one of the progs there was a short story where Dredd went into a block where a bunch of mutants had taken over a gymnasium. After taking care of most of them, Dredd comes face to face with the biggest of the mutants, who seems to be impervious to the shots from his lawmaker. So of course, he proceeds to drive to the end of the swimming pool, revs up his lawmaster, and ramps over the diving board, igniting the booster rockets (yes), and impales the mutant with the bike, diving of the bike at the last minute into the pool. The art was epic, and the story was brutal and to the point, classic Dredd. Can anyone please help me find the story / prog? Cheers!“

He’s since said his timing is probably wrong but that he strongly remembers Dredd using his bike to spear the big EOLM baddy.

I thought even if it’s actually from some non Dredd thing someone might know.

Some kind of super-regen technology.  Dredd has to stay on the streets and it has to actually be Dredd.

Rico - if you meant Dredd's clone brother.

The Stix Brothers - More bounty hunting, but instead of helping people out like Johnny Alpha always would, it's nastiness all the way.

The Adventures of Doc Zellamy & Dale Ardent - A "Dash Decent" spin-off.

Chrono Cops - Bring 'em back.

The Adventures of Stogie

Judge Fish - The Action Serial!
