    America's pretty awesome, but I don't think I'd start with it. Get to know the character a bit first.

    Shameless shilling: I'm selling my collection of back progs - pretty much a complete run from 1998-present. There are around 20 issues missing, but other than that they're all there, and in fair-good condition. I'm based in Brighton, can't deliver them myself, but might be able to come to some agreement over courier delivery, if anyone's interested?

    I see that everybody's covered the basics here, so I'm going to go down the rabbit-hole a bit further. John Smith's Revere was a bit divisive when it was running, but read as a whole it works really well. Tribal Memories by Peter Milligan was fantastic also. These are strips I lent to my friends who don't really like comics and they've been hooked.

    Another John Smith work that's worth a look - LeatherJack. Epic, hallucinatory weirdness. And has anyone mentioned Indigo Prime, yet?

    The Simping Detective has a nice mix of off-kilter humor and Frazer Irving art that might make it accessible to those new to the Dredd-verse.

    I haven't read the Batman/Dredd crossover book that DC and 2000 A.D. put out a while ago. Would that make a good on-ramp point?

    Not sure any of the stories in that collection are tonally consistent with either character's universe, but it is a lot of fun, as I recall.

    Thanks for all the recommendations guys - So far I've picked up The Complete D.R. and Quinch, The Best of Tharg's Future Shocks, The Ten Seconders and The Frazer Irving Collection, but I've added loads to the wishlist... I've also started a subscription to 2000AD and the Megazine! America looks cool and so does Bad Company. I also plan on getting those nice hardcover Zenith books when they're released.

    I'm thinking of getting those small editions of classic Judge Dredd stories but apparently they're TOO small and VERY hard to read - Anyone who has them: yay or nay?

    Keep the recommendations coming and I'll add the cool-looking ones to the list.

    I think I have a link to the online Archive of Dan Abnett's Loose Cannon's I'll go through my notes and see if that isn't something I'm getting confused.



    Edit: turned out I didn't make it up. it's Marvel uk though.

    Given that the larger format Dredd case files are pretty murky at times, I'd steer clear of the mini editions.

    Slightly off topic, but sharing the same DNA. If you want to read something slightly different I would recommend the collections of stories from Battle Comic like Charley's War and Johnny Red. They're very well drawn and the story telling is excellent.
