More Dredd for your cred: Judge Dredd: The Mega Collection to continue

Rebellion have announced a further ten issues will be added to the Judge Dredd: The Mega Collection partwork from 2000AD and Hachette Partworks.

Already a hit with readers across the country, The Mega Collection has brought together some of the best stories from the four decades of the UK’s most famous comic book character.
The ten-issue continuation will allow the collection to include more recent stories as well as classics readers have been clamouring to see reprinted in the deluxe hardcover series.

Every fortnight, subscribers have watched the books’ spines form a fascinating rogues’ gallery by artist Patrick Goddard and colourist Dylan Teague, showing classic characters from 40 years of Judge Dredd – and the continuation will add more creeps and crime-busters from the mean streets of Mega-City One.

Editor of 2000AD and The Mega Collection, Matt Smith, said: “As The Mega Collection has been published over the past two years, the response has been brilliant and it’s been great to see readers speculating about what stories will be included.

“It’s thanks to the fans that this series has been such a success, so this gives us the chance to round up not just some of the most iconic stories in Dredd’s history they’ve been calling for but also give newer fans the chance to savour some of the modern classics from the past decade

The continuation will automatically follow on with current subscribers existing subscription.

    Well, there’s certainly plenty of material! I can see this one running and running.

    BTW, I noticed just yesterday that the 2000ad partworks appear to be cancelled as there’s no longer any sign of it on the Hachette website.

    If so, it’s a shame.
