Yes, Jaegir's next arc called Ferox will most likely land sometime in August

The Coleby droid mentioned that he was drawing Norts just a couple of days ago, so there's definitely something in the works.

I'd be hard-pressed to choose between him and Rob Williams. It's great that we have such a high standard of non-Wagner Dredd writing nowadays, compared to the era of "Sonny Steelgrave" et al.

Rob Williams is an excellent writer, but his Dredds do tend towards blockbuster movies. It’d be interesting to see him run smaller stories across a few months. Niemend, meanwhile, has often skirted around Dredd in strips that are smaller parts of a bigger whole, but now appears to be added more actual Dredd – which is going well.

Personally, I’d say Niemend’s writing feels the closest to Wagner’s, in a manner only Al Ewing has really matched. Honestly, if Tharg threw a load of cash at him and said “just write Dredd for a year”, I’d be happy with that. But between him, Williams, Carroll, etc, with input from a handful of others, Dredd is in good hands, even if it does sometimes feel a bit like we’re reading several alternate universe Dredds rather than a single cohesive whole.
