I think this conversation is nicely proving just how hard it is to please everyone when compiling a collection like this. The complete runs of the classics were quite appealing to me as a new reader but it has dictated a lot of the content so far.

It'd be nice to see some more creator themed volumes gathering up any future shock style shorts and 2-3 self contained stories by a specific writer or artist. We've not really had very much of that and it looks like a potentially rich seam.

Thanks for the kind words, a tip of the hat is due to Kek-W and Dave Kendall, whose magnificent work was a definite inspiration.

Some great stuff so far, and we're only a week in. Grud bless us every one.

Yeah that's an interesting take. I feel like the collection has been a bit of a slave to nostalgia and is overly dominated by complete sets of stuff from the 80s instead of taking a braver approach and including a wider range of stuff from the whole run.

Mambo please!

That's interesting - personally I'd found that the Dredd collection had more meh volumes. Stuff like Stars of Psi-Division, Behind The Iron Curtain, The Heavy Mob, and Fallen Angels were all a bit rubbish and I can't see them getting many re-reads. Slaine 5 & 6 I could have lived without and that 2nd volume of Robo-hunter was a slog to get through but otherwise I've enjoyed pretty much everything in the Ultimate collection so far.  For my money the bad Dredd volumes were worse than the bad Ultimate ones have been ymmv clearly.

Given we've got 30 books in the extension I'd be very surprised if we don't get at least a couple of those titles.  Flesh and VCs both seem like pretty safe bets for inclusion.  Not sure what they'd pair Shako with to make up a vol, I don't think it's got enough page count to stand alone.  Similarly I'm not sure if there enough 2000ad era Ro-busters to make a volume given we've already had a couple of bits in ABC Warriors: Volume 4. Although it would seem weird to include Return To Ro-Busters without including more Ro-busters and I think the Return To ABCs stories seem like strong candidates for inclusion.  Personally the future sports stuff doesn't really appeal but given it's significance in that opening line up I wouldn't be surprised to see a volume or 2 of Harlem Heroes.

Would you (or anyone) happen to have written a summary of the Dredd Mega Collection books that would be interesting to those of us who has bought all the Case files and other Rebellion's collections?

If you're after a list of what got included in the collection - wikipedia has one https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judge_Dredd:_The_Mega_Collection

Hi Feikki - happy to help if I can! What kind of summary do you need? Which stories are in which collections?

Discalimer: Sorry, I haven't read most of the topics or posts on these forums, and I've checked few of the reviews on your blog.
