A previous draft of the release very clearly had the word 'hardcover' in it, no idea where that disappeared to. But in answer to your question: it's a hardcover.

Splendid. I'll be interested in the page size. I bought the individual colourised editions and everything seemed very small.

And the page size is the same as a bus shelter ad, right?

Certainly, when you separate them out from the book and lay them out side by side in a large grid-like fashion.

Is there any other way to read a book?

Strontium Dog Search and Destroy - The 2000 AD Years 1, collects the earliest SD strips to appear in 2000 AD after the sci-fi comic it originally appeared in, Starlord, was merged with the 'galaxy's greatest comic!'

Co-created by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra, the team behind Judge Dredd, this collection includes the beautifully-coloured spreads that appeared in the original 2000 AD run and includes the classic Strontium Dog story, Portrait Of A Mutant. This pivotal tale explored Johnny Alpha's past and introduced such memorable characters as the knobbly-headed Middenface McNulty and the Torso from Newcastle.

Judge Dredd: The Complete Case Files 41 - 2nd February 2023



In Mega-City One the Judges are a hardened police force acting as judge, jury and executioner. Toughest of them all is Judge Dredd. He is the Law, and these are his stories.

This latest collection of Judge Dredd: The Complete Case Files sees Dredd continue to track down the murderous PJ Maybe, take the Scottish artist Kenny Who to court, and stop the angry war veteran-turned-Mandroid Nate Slaughterhouse.

Written by John Wagner (A History of Violence) with drawn by a host of acclaimed artists including Kev Walker (The Eternals), Cam Kennedy (Star Wars), and Carlos Ezquerra (Preacher), this is Judge Dredd at his pulse-pounding best!

Judge Dredd: Regicide - 112 pages, 14th March 2023



Orlok the Assassin is Back! Judge Dredd thought that Orlok the Assassin, one of his most nefarious enemies - responsible for infecting Mega-City 1's citizens with Block Mania during the Apocalypse War, and the murder of Judge Giant Snr - was dead. But Orlok appears to be back, and responsible for a shocking wave of murders. Even more troubling, Orlok is not alone, and is working with La Reine Rouge, a brutal Crimelord who is trying to take over Europe. Can Dredd stop the Red Queen's sinister plans before its too late?

Writers Arthur Wyatt (Dredd/Anderson: The Deep End) and Rob Williams (Suicide Squad, Judge Dredd: Control), team up with fan favourite artist Jake Lynch (Proteus Vex) to tell an action-packed adventure that will change Dredd's world - forever!


Look out for the sequel, "Judge Reg: Dreddicide".

YES!! Exactly what I've been asking for, thank you Tharg! Really hoping this is hardback, same as the Starlord years.

Also grateful to have the Case Files trucking along, always a highlight.

interesting with the Stront Vol 2

IT seems to have Journey Into Hell and Portrait in it making it bigger than Vol 1?  When I first ssaw it I assumed just Galaxy Killers, Hell and some special stories would make a similar sized volume to 1?
