there was  a long run of barrel scrapings for a bit, but I've enjoyed Disaster
Just a little rough and tumble, Judge man.

I'd second a Metro Dredd collection for the floppies but I would really love a complete Daily Star Dredd phonebook.

Now, see, I'd buy a Meg just for that. Those collected editions of the Daily Star strips are fairly hard to come by these days

Metro Dredds would warrant a floppy as there weren't as many as the Daily Star ones. They would need a phonebook to be done justice.

Id like to see a floppy of star scans, sci fi special stuff and extraneous things that wouldn't make other volumes. A floppy doesnt always need to be strips right?

I'd like to see Rogan's run on Strontium Dogs & Durham Red to bring the floppies up to the Durham Red GNs.

I second this - the floppies did seem to be heading this way but then stopped... Can we have the rest of Strontium Dogs please Tharg?

I've just read the second part of Disaster 1990. It is be no measure what you could possibly call 'good comics', but by Drokk it's entertaining.

AHAB works well collected this month too
But everybody else is overwhelmed by indifference and the promise of an early bed

I'd love to hear more thoughts on this months floppy from you guys, either here or in the Meg thread.

I'd never read it before and quite enjoyed it - 2000AD does Moby Dick.  Mr. Elson's art is beautiful.

A.H.A.B read well as a floppy. Neat little story also.

I love the megazines floppies and I'm really enjoying Pat Mills Finn (really bring him back to 2000ad please), Pan African judges anyone?

As i said in my review over at the Megazine thread, i really loved A.H.A.B, if we can regularly get floppies as good as this months one, then i don't mind at all. I know we'll get the odd hiccup but i've generally been pleased with the output of late. And i cannot agree more - i wanna see more Finn!

I think some of the stories in the Floppies work really well and hang together better collected, but some of the art is really dated and hard to follow, the mucky colours and oddly drawn boy people can make it all a bit hard on the eyes, still I like the fact that after the meg is done there's a second helping of 2K to be had.
