One comment on “Slaine: Ask Ukko!

  1. Anyone feel the order of the Judge Dredd Mega-Collection is weird or a bit confusing?

    Issue 16 – Judge Dredd: Doomsday for Dredd (Vol 42) (out now)

    A mega-epic so big it has had be split between two volumes, 1999′s Doomsday Scenario comes to the Mega Collection! In the volume concentrating on Dredd, Orlok the Assassin arrives in the city with a plan to kidnap the lawman and take him back to East-Meg, where he will stand trial for war crimes. Meanwhile, crimelord Nero Narcos is making moves to wipe out the Judges forever with an army of robots… Escape with this volume, written by John Wagner, and featuring art from Carlos Ezquerra, Cam Kennedy, Simon Davis, Neil Googe, Mick McMahon and other legends.

    Issue 17 – Judge Dredd: Oz (Vol 31)

    Skysurf champion and hero of the people Marlon ‘Chopper’ Shakespeare breaks free from incarceration and escapes to Oz, where Supersurf 10 is being held. Meanwhile, a mysterious new enemy appears in the Big Meg calling itself the Judda – what links does it have with Justice Department’s past? Written by John Wagner and Alan Grant, this epic story features art by Steve Dillon, Brendan McCarthy, Garry Leach, Barry Kitson, and many more, plus there’s an exclusive interview with Brendan McCarthy!

    Issue 18 – Judge Dredd: Day of Chaos – Endgame (Vol 50)

    The events that started in Day of Chaos: The Fourth Faction come their shocking finale, with an entire city in flames as citizens run riot, infected with the Soviet Chaos Bug, and the Judges struggling to cope. Could this be the city’s final days? John Wagner writes one of the most explosive Dredd mega-epics ever, with art from Colin MacNeil, Henry Flint, Ben Willsher, Edmund Bagwell and Dave Taylor. Plus, take a special look at MC-1′s attempts to rebuild itself after its many catastrophes.

    ————————

    You read the first part of the Doomsday Scenario – then it’s followed by by Oz – then followed by the second part of Day of Chaos!

    How the heck are new readers of Judge Dredd gonna follow that? I know the books are not released in their correct order but even so, this order is nonsensical! Why entice readers to read the first part of Doomsday then follow it by Oz and then Day of Chaos part 2? It’s all over the place. LOL

    I think some effort should have been given to putting some of the stories in order to avoid any confusion from new or lapsed Judge Dredd/2000ad readers. The books are fantastic but the order does diminish their impact, perhaps? Strange marketing approach.
