Flint 4 : Williams 1

Kennedy 4 : Johnson 1

I absolutely love Simon's work it, it's consitently brilliant stuff. Swimming In Blood is an underniable classic but can't stand up against the string of hits Davis has delivered us

Davis 4 : Philips 1

Horrible draw for Elson but someone had to come about against Carlos.

We've had vols end on cliffhangers before, Ampney Crucis for example. There are going to be more to come too as things like Grey Area are still ongoing and Brass sun was left unfinished. It's the nature of this kind of collection that it can only ever be a snapshot of what's available at the time.

I really enjoyed the Jaegir volume. My intro the character in the prog had been Bonegrinder which was an odd start point as it's seems like that's a major pivot point. It all makes much more sense within the larger continuity.

We've had a total of 9 vols with 235+ pages of story in the UC.

  • Traitor To His Kind - 238
  • The Life And Death Of Johnny Alpha - 252
  • Robo-Hunter: Volume 1 - 240
  • Durham Red - 238
  • Invasion - 236
  • Ampney Crucis Investigates... - 250
  • Greysuit - 252
  • Flesh - 236
  • Lobster Random - 240

Graph shows the pages of story in each volume from the two Hachette Collections. Up to date with my last delivery (Savage and Jaegir).

We've definitely had a few volumes bigger than 235. Lobster Random, The Life And Death Of Johnny Alpha and Ampney Crucis Investigates... were all around 250ish.

I'll jump on my other computer in a bit where I've got the exact numbers.

Trevallion 3 : Wilson 2

Very close to being a 4:1 split with the recent Fiends from Trevallion. But those early Rogue episodes from Wilson make this another close round.

Langley 3 : Fabry 2

The Volgan War tipping the balance to Langley for me.

Fraser 3 : Critchlow 2

Cornwell 3 : Clarke 2

That's one grumpy looking Dredd

I absolutely love Nick's take on the Dark Judges. But I can't deny the genius of Talbot's Nemesis.  It's a tough one but I think I'm going to give this one to Team Current:

Percival 3: Talbot 2

Mr Cummings reports that the prime minister likes “chaos” as a mode of government because it forces others to await his arbitration, thereby bolstering his power. That is consistent with other accounts of Mr Johnson’s modus operandi: maintaining a deliberately weak cabinet, contradicting himself, making false public statements, making policy commitments one day and U-turning the next, procrastinating while the options narrow.

So Cummings would have us believe that Johnson is running the country much like Lord Julius runs Palnu in the Cerebus comics. Not sure how it's taken me this long to realise that similarity, particularly as I've only recently re-read High Society.

Lord Julius
    Grandlord of the city-state of Palnu, who exercises control by making the bureaucracy incredibly dense and incomprehensible. Julius is crafty and intelligent, but often plays the fool to confuse and baffle opponents.

It maybe that having recently read the Ultimate Collections Jaegir volume is skewing this one for me. Coleby's work on that strip is superb.
