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.
I actually kind of like the way each writer has carved their own little niche within the Dreddverse, with Matt presumably keeping a watchful eye to make sure they don't contradict each other (not that Wagner and Grant ever worried much about that when they were sole writers). YMMV of course.

Those one-parter series have highs and lows, but the format betrays them.

Survival Geeks is a solid gold modern 2000 AD classic. Yes: modern and classic. Also perhaps the best comedy they've ever done. And it seemed to know when to end, avoiding the wheel spinning of some other long-running series. Still - there's 'Splorers to enjoy now.

Yeah modern classic is a thing. It’s more about quality than being old.

Examples include Brink, Lawless, Kingdom (even if I didn’t vote for it in the current round), Abaslom, The Out and others.

I'm not sure I've actually declared this but Niemand is now clearly the best none Wagner Dredd writer we have and have had.
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.

So, from my perspective (yes, the correct one), Fr1day is really a vote for The War Machine:




Storm Warning, on the other hand, doesn't force you to excise a large chunk of the published material as it's all pretty solid stuff. I liked how Storm Warning broadened out our view of the future UK beyond the borders of Brit-Cit. I'd like to see more.




Storm Warning, please.
