Hi - New 2000AD Reader
« on: 01 August, 2016, 08:07:11 pm »
Hello, I am new to 2000AD, from Canada. The new (2012) Derdd movie got me into Judge Dredd several months ago, and I cant believe what I have been missing! In the last few months I have purchased and read the first 10 volumes of the Complete Case Files and America, a few volumes of Rogue Trooper Tales of Nu Earth, and the Zenith series (and all the free downloads from the 2000AD app). The humor/satire/violence of Dredd makes it my favorite book of them all right now.

I have been reading comics (mostly Marvel) for 20ish years but had never tried any European comics. I really appreciate the format and am not afraid to admit that European comics, specifically 2000AD, are much better than most American books (way better written - smart and unpredictable stories not concerned about PC).

I plan to buy recent Dredd graphic novels and Jaegir next. I look forward to asking a bunch of questions and reading up on all the things I have been missing. Thanks.

welcome to the board!  :wave:

If you're looking for some of the more recent non-casefile GNs, I can heartily recommend The Pit (Dredd takes over a failing sector house - a fairly straightforward cop-procedural with a large cast of characters); Origins (when it seems Eustace Fargo may still be alive, Dredd leads a mission into the Cursed Earth and recounts in flashback the origins of mega City One and Justice Dept), Brothers of the Blood ( a collection of stories spanning several years about Dredd's various clones) and Day of Chaos (a more recent 3 volume epic - things go reeeeealllly bad for MC1)
