Rico is an understandable inclusion, because it's historically important. Helter Skelter is the baffling one.

I'm also intrigued about the radical departure he promises for the strip post-'The Path of Kali'.

My best guess: Jaegir moves to Nu Torquay and opens a hotel, with hilarious consequences.

I'm not sure what to think of Jaegirs attitude shift, she wasn't sympathetic to the Southers before but didn't seem to have the fanaticism that was endemic in old Rogue Trooper.

She did spend the entire most recent story being tortured by them.

In the original progs I had thought this would be leading up to a series conclusion but from Rennie's comments in the afterword there's a lot more to come.

Thought that was the strongest prog so far this year, which I wasn't expecting.

A population so docile and infantilised that they will happily overlook their leaders being responsible for mass deaths and still vote them in, despite knowing full well what they did and will do?

Tbf there were plenty of examples of that in the real world even before Judge Dredd first appeared.

There was a more detailed explanation of what strips got continued and why in the Meg lettercol back in the day, but I don't have a copy to hand to check.

Found it. It's in Meg volume 2 no 58. Fair play, they include a list of all the votes and percentages alongside the explanation of what was getting a series and what wasn't. Culling Crew (which didn't get one) scored almost 10 times as many votes as Karyn (which did).

We need to introduce this system for the Eurovision Song Contest.

I'm not sure why I put a spoiler space in there, sorry.

Pandora Perfect is the kind of strip that I can't imagine could make the leap to the regular prog but is absolutely right for Regened.

I'm a bit sceptical about Department K going weekly but as we're now getting three Dreddworld strips per Prog for the foreseeable, I wonder if they're going to pull another Trifecta on us.

Would Pat Mills be mollified if someone did a very different version of ABC Warriors?

I think if you swapped the robots for, say, cowboys, and set in on Earth instead of Mars, maybe change it to a period setting instead of a sci-fi.... The Magnificent Seven anyone?

I'd set it in 16th century Japan myself.

Isn't Doomlord tied up in "who owns the rights" hell?

I am torn about Brass Sun because it would be nice to have the complete series (to date) in one place but I already have the large format Rebellion hardcover and don't want to downsize.

How about compilations of two or three short series from Crisis and Revolver that would be unlikely to make it into reprint on their own? A collection including Morrison and Millar stuff like The New Adventures of Hitler and Insiders could be quite commercial, though Straightgate and Rogan Gosh would also be nice.
