Books & Comics / 2000 AD Digest only four, but would of liked more.

Batman vs Dredd was a mixed bag.

Ghost Town with Anderson/Dredd was kind of a sad tale.

Zombo bonkers fun with gallows humor and blood/guts off the charts.

Mandroid oh boy that was a gut punch of a story about a Vet.

I have tried some of the classic cape stuff Marvel/DC, but I seem to really enjoy the sci-fi stuff more like Dredd/Anderson. I enjoyed Artifacts volume 1-3, Aphrodite IX. Mass Effect collection was just filler. The one cape story I did really get into was The Watchmen. Frank Miller Batman seems to resonate. I liked the Batman/Robin and the Dark Knight stuff.

I was trying to figure out the overlap between TMC and CCF runs. I own most of the TMC, but I would like to get some CCF. I am going to focus on the CCF runs first that have more CCF stories than TMC stories. I used these links below to sort both of these long runs out.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judge_Dredd:_The_Mega_Collection & https://2000ad.fandom.com/wiki/List_of_Judge_Dredd_stories_in_Case_Files

I have a way more comprhensive detailed list, but 2000AD Forum is a 20,000 word limit. Might be some slight accounting errors, but not much. Take it as rough, but close account. I only did one pass tallying it all up. A basic road map into which of the CCF collections have the most new stories for TMC owners, but I have no idea of the quality of those CCF stories, so. More is not always better.

General / Looking for JD/Anderson reading/merch suggestions.
« on: 26 February, 2022, 02:16:17 PM »
Dredd/Anderson noob here. Looking for reading JD/Anderson suggestions. This year I have read most of the 69 books which I own out of the Mega Collection 90 book run I have. Very few low points with a few really good high points. A solid entertaining read generally. I have read the 2000AD digest formats of Dredd/Batman & Ghost Town. Every Empire Falls is still unread. Early comic book Dredd around Judge Cal time didn't do it for me. The PJ Maybe stuff I found annoying. America, Android, Wally Squad stuff and the Pit are the major highlights I have read so far.

I Like both the else world JD films. With Stallone cheesy take and Urban's grounded take. Found out Dredd does have a elseworld dimensional multiverse due to the Mega Collection.

Also intrested in Judge Dredd merch which I found is very limited. Really would like a Helmet, figurine and a good framed poster. I notice the fan fiction is fairly limited. I did find Judge Minty on YT and thought that was a pretty cool fan made production.

I read Batman Hush lately which is supposed to one of the top ten Batman comics of all time. I just thought to myself yeah it's ok, but kind of tame and limited compared to Dredds general Judges on the beat stories. I think I like dark, gritty, (Devlin) bizzare, satire. Satans Island comes to mind. Reading the Watchmen and thinking about trying the Boys comics for the first time.

Pretty excited geting into comic books so hence all the waffling.
