Abnett and the correct artist is a great point - and likely with all writers - because the early Grey Area left me cold and dill in artists were better but not saving it. Then Mark Harrison got the gig and it became much more alien and much more human. It quickly moved into my first not-Dredd read of the week.

but there is no nice/accessible collected edition (that I'm aware of) to read. It's on my list, I'll need to track the trades down (I mostly do not read digital, only paper for me!)


8 of the 11 volumes Are available in print in the 2000ad shop and that includes the repackaged 1-3
4 & 5 are two of the unavailable but they’re next in line for the new spruced up editions.

The irony of people mentioning Ian leaving stories unfinished when we never got book IV of YOU KNOW WHAT.....

Bob the Galactic Bum was a reprint.

If it is a reprint from the prog or the meg then it does not count but if it came from another publication then it does count

It was also altered / redrawn in parts from what I can remember - something to do with copyright of one of the characters (maybe it’s a lobo thing?).

Dan Abnett.

Pretty much love everything Ian has done and can’t say the same about Abnett but he’s never not good and his wares are broader and more pervasive. So a technical win to him while a tip of the hat and directors fortnight award to Ian.

Pat Mills. Not just for his writing but for his dedication to producing talented original artists on his work.

From prog one to the recent series of Defoe he’s delivered.

Anyone read this. IDW mini by Brandon Easton and Kei Zama - two creators I don't really know at all. Its a bloomin' good read.

Dredd takes a bit of a back seat as we get a Vegaesque lead drive the story. An ex Cadet carrying what he thinks are sex drugs, but turn out to be something much more sinister indeed. Its got some interesting ideas bubbling away and I like the way he uses Dredd - even if some bit might make folks prickle I think he does a pretty good Joe. All in all a brisk and decent read. Not 100% on the art but its far from terrible. If this one keeps up like this could be one of the best IDW have done.

After years of buying their floppies I gave up and decided to tradewait - is it 2000ad-verse Dredd, IDW series 1-verse Dredd or that weird old-man beard Dredd?

Maybe the collapse of American comics will lure Al back to Dredd for a while, because that was fantastic.

And the Red Seas was lovely, Yeowell’s Classic pensmanship always a joy and the effects-bubbles only page a pure comics thrill - kudos to Jim if he was involved in that. Just great.

Thanks Cyber-Matt, you’re a man of fine taste.

Certain people here have been negging Rob Williams Dredd for a long time but for me he’s the best bar-Wagner there is. But I guess some find it fine to praise Wagner for his terse scripts then criticise Williams for writing silent man Dredd.

Low Life, Hershey, Titan, The Small House - simply the best stuff we’ve had since Day of Chaos. Only Ewing came close and he didn’t hang around.
