Just had a nosey on the Judges... section.
Super work indexing those secondary characters! This is shaping uo to be a proper rival to Barney as an all-purpose 2000AD resource.
However, was Judge Giant, Sr, not a reasonably key figure in 'The Day the Law Died'?
and I think that role was repirsed somewhat in Helter Skelter, or possibly one of the other times Judge Cal resurfaced.

You're absolutely right, on both counts.

I’ll adjust the data on my next sweep. Thanks, btw - feedback on what I’ve missed is exactly what’s needed. My brain only knows so much, and especially on Dredd it can be a bit rusty.

So, my spreadsheet contains two types of character link.

If it says "Linked to...", that means there's a separate section set apart for the linked story or character.
If it says "Featuring...", that is just a mention - there's no separate section.

---

For The Day the Law Died, I currently have:

Linked to:
[Judge Cal]
The Kleggs
Judge Goodman
Judge Griffin

Featuring:
Judge-Tutor Pepper
Fergee

I'm going to add Judge Giant, Snr. to the "Linked" section.

---

For Helter Skelter, it's a bit complicated:

Linked to:
[Judge Cal]
Judge Hershey
[Rico Dredd]

Then I have a massive note:

A dimensional crossover tale.
Also featuring:
 - The Geeks (The VC's)
 - Call-Me-Kenneth (Robot Wars)
 - Judge Giant, Snr.
 - The Dark Judges
 - An invader (Colony Earth)
 - The Titan of Peem (Ace Trucking)
 - Grampus, a Klegg (The Day the Law Died)
 - Murd the Oppressor (The Judge Child)
 - Captain Skank (Pirates of the Black Atlantic)
 - Fink Angel
 - War Marshal Kazan (The Apocalpyse War)
 - Don Uggie Apelino (The Ape Gang)
 - A Smiling Chuckwalla (Strontium Dog)
 - Nort infantry (Rogue Trooper)
 - Captain Constanta (Fiends of the Eastern Front)
 - Old One Eye (Flesh)
 - D.R. & Quinch

And radio transmissions from:
 - The Ballad of Halo Jones
 - The VC's
 - M.A.C.H. 1
 - Rogue Trooper
 - Ace Trucking Co.

And in the episode #7 splash:
 - Nemesis the Warlock
 - The A.B.C. Warriors
 - Rogue Trooper
 - Robo-Hunter
 - Ro-Jaws
 - Slaine
 - Halo Jones


So, do you think the other-dimensional Giant deserves to be shifted over to the Linked section?

I would say no - he's only doing the same job as the other cameos, not adding to the wider lore of Giant.
Massively appreciate the thoroughness of that extended Helter Skelter list!

I was scanning the Anderson story WiiERD (M272-M276) the other day, and had forgotten that it also has a broad cameo section in a VR situation, featuring:

 - Cyber-Matt
 - Tharg the Mighty
 - Bill Savage
 - Blackhawk
 - Space Girls
 - Ant Wars
 - Shako

Is the current Judge Rico a clone of Dredd or a clone of Fargo?

Me being me maybe an Indigo Prime-verse icon as well but yes great stuff so far !!!!
Old age is the Lord’s way of telling us to step aside for something new. Death’s in case we didn’t take the hint.

The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.

I had to think really hard about whether Disaster 1990 really deserves the Millsverse icon. On the one hand, there's Bill Savage (so, that's the link), but on the other hand there's nothing else Millsverse in that story at all.

I hadn't read Disaster 1990 all the way through before doing this project - I love that one of the enemies he comes up against is a crazy old coot who has gained control of a squadron of deadly attack swans through the use of his magic bird call! England's been flooded for about a week, but this guy has a ten-year beard, which means he's been stalking the fens for years, picking off unwary twitchers.

I'd say we're about due for a new story about people in future(ish) Britain coping with a sudden, country-wide disaster of some kind...
they definitely do seem to bring the weirdoes out of the woodwork.

Also, I vote 'no' to putting the Millsverse icon on Disaster 1990, at least until the point that some writer has a going at telling a 'flooded brtiain' story and Pat gets cross with them for doing it.
