Judge Fear's Big Day Out and Other Stories - coming November 2020
« on: 30 September, 2020, 11:22:34 AM »
Judge Fear's Big Day Out And Other Stories - Paperback, 416 pages, 12th November 2020

New anthology collecting the very best prose stories from the pages of the Galaxy's Greatest Comic!

A shopping mall where droids sell organs harvested from street trash...
A murderous imaginary friend...
A psychotic composer drafting music from pain...
All in a day's work for the Lawman of the Future.

Judge Fear's Big Day Out and Other Stories gathers the very best short stories from more than a decade of the Judge Dredd Megazine, including stories by legends Alan Grant, Gordon Rennie and Simon Spurrier, among countless others...


Not sure how the number of contributors to a ~400 page book can be 'countless'.  It's probably meant to refer to the megazine.

There's really a market for collections of prose stories? I'm sure some of them are good but I just can't bring myself to read them when they're published in a comic. My brain can't cope making the switch from one kind of reading to another.

Haven't there already been a couple of digital only collections of this stuff? I tend to agree that it's not for me but it looks like we're on our own.

I'm with you! These were always an auto-skip in Annuals and Sci-Fi Specials, etc. Features were fine, but prose stories just didn't belong.

Judge Fear's Big Day Out is an incredibly clever short story and well worth reading.

There were some really good text stories in the specials.  Most of the best ones were by John Smith - his Animal House was set in MC1 and the Cursed Earth and was excellent. He also did a really good Strontium Dogs text story, and his Rogue Trooper (Friday version) text story was pretty much the only good bit of new material in an otherwise Fleisher-heavy Rogue annual.
