Yup, Redondo and Wilson for me, too.

Don Reardon - just so effortlessly his own artist, beholden to nobody. Just wish he did more gorgeous colour work. Staz Johnson - recognisable, individual style that's full of detail.

Nick Dyer (great cartooning, lovely to see a former fanziner done good) and Nicolo Assirelli (lovely facial expressions and colours). Winslade clearly doesn't need my vote here, and I've never loved Percival's wishy-washy CG stuff with its very abstract backgrounds.

Liam Sharp (already well represented) and Trevor Hairsine - can't believe he doesn't have any votes yet! Too obviously influenced by McMahon, perhaps?

Flesh is not my favorite and Mills's weakest entry in the prog.  It felt like any of Mill's stories but with dinosaurs.

That's the trouble with latter-day Mills all round though, isn't it?

Whether you're reading late-era Flesh, Slaine, Defoe or any of Greysuit, it's just a sequentially-illustrated rant about organised religion, government or the upper classes. The only variables are who is delivering the rant, and who they're fighting while they do it.

wait....revere? did we know revere was gonna be in the extension?!?

Actually that's a good point, he's the only character who might hint at a 'new' book - but then again he pops up in Indigo Prime.

There are still 29 volumes we know nothing about, with 203 pages of strip remaining after the first Flesh collection. So, there may be a volume 2 at some point...

Boo Cook's today posted images of the spine extension artwork, and it poses interesting questions regarding the 'extra' 29 books - there's not a single character on the extension artwork that we didn't already know were incoming in issues 80-111...

Judge Dredd Case Files 36 - 4th Feb 2021

Judge Dredd has brought countless monsters to justice but now the ultimate killing machines, cinema's most famous xenomorphs, surface in Mega-City One and it may well be more than the Justice Department can handle!

Progs 1302-1335 and Megs 4.14-4.18. Seem to remember a question some years ago as to whether Dredd vs Aliens would feature in the Case Files owing to rights issues, so great to see it's going to be included. Seems a bit of a missed oppurtunity not to have put a lovely Henry Flint xenomorph on the cover, though!

So looking at the list of Flesh strips vs the ones collected is there a reason why a fair amount is skipped over in this book? Unless it's just to do with the fact they only want 1 vol of the series/It's easier just to reflect the content of the Dino Files

Yeah, the Flesh collection just doesn't make much sense either way you cut it. There are arguments to be made for not including Shamanna/Chronicide, but why bother with Texas - the start of a whole new cycle of stories - if you aren't going to  include any of the direct follow-up stories?

I see Jaegir is there as well, is it just the same stuff that's in the Rebellion book or does that include more stories?  I have Jaegir on paperback already and it's a bit thin for one book unless it was being paired with something like the 86ers.

There's now double the material that there was when that first paperback came out.

I think it's been established as different in so many flashbacks now that the change from that early-style uniform is basically canon.

The chap in the white suit is someone else.

The Ophidian — the Sisters' henchman. He's introduced on the last page of the first episode.

He first appeared in the third book of Stickleback (London's Burning) and returned in the fifth (Thru'penny Opera).

All good points. I suppose it's a situation where an argument could be made for doing it either way.
