Hanging plot threads you would like to see addressed
« on: 24 June, 2016, 04:47:15 PM »
When you've got a weekly comic thats been runing for 40 years, and a sister magazine thats been runing for 20 odd, there are bound to be a few dangling plot threads you'd like to see concluded.

In terms of Dredd alone there are a shit ton, Rico and Koburns curse by Gilla Bruja, where Michal Carroll was going with the space corps story line, former chief judge Silver's ghost, so on and so forth.

Outlaw was never finished.
Bec and Kawl finished before they got to do any jokes.
There was some Sino-City plot from 1990s Dredd by Mark Millar that made it clear (just in case his career since hasn't) that he was the one keen to replicate the anarchic energy of the home video action movie market of the time and Grant Morrison was just using that as a soundbite while cashing his cheques.
We never saw the original Rogue Trooper after Friday was introduced - WE NEVER SAW HIM AGAIN I SAID - until he was soft-rebooted in the mid-2000s, or what Friday did after he went into that wormhole.
We also never saw how Armored Gideon regenerated into Shakara.

Nobody's mentioned Dan Dare yet...

How did Torquemada die on the telegraph wire if he hadn't been sent back in time and was trapped as part of a gestalt entity with Nem and Seth for a million years?

Gordon Rennie's Dreddverse building didn't lead to a payoff although Day of Chaos probably superceded it.

On Rennie Dredd, I recall some plot line stuff with Vienna at the center. Between Bloodlines and Gunther being turned into a cyborg. Did that ever fully conclude?

Vienna's baby? I can't quite remember weather that got resolved...

Every subplot and every supporting character's story in The Red Seas that was unceremoniously dumped in the race to the finish - and they were the best bits, Jack was never that interesting. I'm still waiting on an epilogue.

Exactly what trouble Freddie Waugh got himself into.

And did we ever find out what happened to that Black Hawk fella?

Did the stuff with the Kazan clone have a conclusion?
