Is this the right room for an argument?

I still groan when I hear people trying to explain Judge Dredd with meaningless lines like "the city itself is a character!"  I remember watching a state-side interview (in a boat?) with two of the Rebellion crew.  When they trotted out that line, the interviewer naturally asked what they meant and they had no idea how to articulate it.  It's just an unhelpful, meaningless catchphrase.  I don't think that helps sell it or gets the idea across what it's about.

Another thing against 2000AD making waves is a lot of its ideas have already been stolen or done in similar ways.  If you made a "Strontium Dog" tv series, people would say "Western in space?  Firefly did that already!"  Blue-skinned Rogue Trooper?  "You're copying Avatar!" etc.  I know 2000AD, especially in the early years, can be derivative, formulaic, built on tropes, etc, but at 45 it has done a lot that younger audiences won't know of.

Thirdly, wasted movie opportunities.  If the Urban movie had less violence and language (and 3D), it would have got a wider audience, which would have given a bigger potential market for the comic.  Reading Dredd on the page doesn't give me the idea I'm reading an R-rated 'slay-ride".  I'm sure Disney are making Spiderman etc movies open to the widest audience possible.

Only one Judge Dredd Case File all year? There were only 2 in 2022 as well.
I hope this list is incomplete, or we'll never catch up to the present at this rate!

The list is incomplete. We’ve only got info for 2023 up to about June or July.

Message from Tharg: be very careful about voting against any strips where one of the main characters is called Smith.

The VCs.

Big shout out for Ant Wars - just because it really is an entertaining slice of early 2K.

We're really getting into the troublesome point of having to pick between genuine favourites.

But yeah, stomp on the ants.
