I like the art style!

Is that Dredd in a sov-block uniform? I'm not as conversant with the older stuff as a lot of people, so I don't get all the references. Looks good though. As far as balls are concerned you've got nothing to worry about.

So to speak.

I'm talking metaphorical balls you understand.

End of the Apoc. War - Dredd goes to the TV studio dressed as an East Meg judge and confronts the enemy live on VT.
Get thee to the casefiles fella.

Insurrection is the best thing I've read for ages. I may have to get some back issues to get the full picture or wait for the TPB.I found Tank Girl the least interesting IMHO but they are all good in their own way. Perhaps i should just bite the bullet and subscribe.

Never really liked Chopper all that much, it just never interested me.  Interesting article on the much missed Martial Law-a great read if you can  find it. Though it was printed originally by a Marvel off shoot I'm glad 2000AD took time to remind us of it's dark genius.

Original was a 6-parter issued by Epic (DC off-shoot for mature comics because superwhoreos hadn't become 'mature' yet) that also put out The last Americian and some lovely Cam Kennedy art. Needless to say nobody bought it despite being brilliant.

As for people complaining about word-less  Wagner - you outta read The Last American....... a study in silence. "maybe he'll find someone to talk to this issue..... do be do be do...... do be do...... hummm. Nope".

I'd say its up to us to show them there is a market for the COMPLETE casefiles. While lots of the meg has been reprinted there is lots that hasn't - the 48 page Midnights Children from vol 1 (grant / baikie) the gippers big night (grant / simpson) or who's reprint is harder to track down - raptaur (grant / ormston).

Although I think there is alot more bobbins in the Meg (raptaur for one, or if Anderson includes the Meg then we have the joys of Steve Sampson's non-art) its definitely worth including the material. And we are not far off knowing - the current casefile takes the progs up to March 1989 and the Meg launched in October 1990. By 1992 you have Judgment Day with its Meg/Prog dual-story.

As for the 'missing' material - a numerically significant casefile (15? 20?) could be used to reprint the whole shebang. It definitely would be a seller.

Casefile 12 is just lovely... if you haven't got it. Get it today.

At first you think 'oh thats quite thin'

Only 'cos the paper is different - it still contains the same amount of pages as previous volumes!

I was slightly irked reading CF12 as lots of the double page spreads are hard to read - word balloons and captions falling into the 'gutter' between pages - I thought this issue had been sorted in the last few (B&W) collections....

poke yourself on the inside of each eye and LIFE becomes art.

Casefiles 12 is SUPERIOR PRODUCT 101. Ya'all better buy it and keep them a coming....

Just recieved the new case files and Dante this week.

My god both are STUNNING collections. Dante is huge with 3 talents at the top of their game from start to finish. Bit strange to see the same sketch pages repeated from previous volumes but thats by the by. Simply a must buy and compelled me to get Hell & High Water and Sword of the Tsar to make up the gap in my collection. Peerless work fellas.

And Casefiles 12 -  THIS is the business. Its so good it makes me cry that all the volumes haven't been including colour to date (serious do a limited web-only run of them - I'd pay up to 40 quid to have casefiles 11 produced like this). Only read Hitman so far but its the doozy I remember. Definately buying another copy as a gift to a lapsed reader to tempt em back.. this stuff is like unlce umps finest. At first you think 'oh thats quite thin' by the time you've read the first epsoide of Hitman and stroked the pages, marvelled at the reproduction..... you're hooked.

God life is good. Hurrah to the book driods - you've done sterling work. This whole post is just to say thank you.

You mean the chancer responsible for one of the worst covers ever to grace 2000AD?!


Gibson is very under-rated (even vilified) thesedays but for me he'd never be out of an all-tiime top 5 - his backgrounds and vehicle designs for MC1 were stunning - I long for everyone to draw futuristic transport like him rather than 'oh its a 2008 van' that so many seem to (HELLO PAUL MARSHALL)- he's been there since the start - Robot Wars' shot of the Oil Depot is seminal MC1 and worked on Dredd, Halo Jones & Robo-Hunter.I reckon he'd do a mighty Dante too. Plus he's not that long departed...
