Can anyone recommend some Judge Dredd compendiums or similar?

I had a few when I was younger in the mid 90's. I honestly can't remember whether they were Judge Dredd or 2000AD books, but I think they were a collection of stories, one of which was when he goes to the Cursed Earth (is that right?) and it features the lad Mean Angel and his gang. Top information to go on, I know.

Seen a few of The Case Files, but to be honest I'm looking to spend the least amount possible so any Ebay recommendations would be good. (Not listings, just titles I can look up on Ebay)

Also after some Batman or Spiderman that would be a good introduction to the comics for a 7 year old. Again, I had a big Batman book in the late 90s but no idea what it was called.

Cheers.

Case Files Volume 2 is a great place to start and it has that entire Cursed Earth saga along with the Judge Cal classic.

Thanks, I'll see if I can pick up a cheap copy.

After some help. I have read Marvel comics for years and have huge burnout from them. 

I jumped over to DC for a change and started with the Injustice series. Finished Injustice 2 and seemingly that title is done. Does the story continue elsewhere are am I left with this unfinished story?

If the story is done what should I read next, I want to keep moving forward if possible so essentially what I am asking is what is next, I like the characters in Injustice so would like to move forward with them.

JLA would be preferable but open to suggestions. 

How much of Injustice 2 did you read? There were 36 issues - I didn't read it, but I'm under the impression it's mostly finished.

Because Injustice is an alternative universe story, it's a bit difficult to suggest what you might like, because it depends which characters you liked. You might like Scott Snyder's Justice League run - especially the Metal series, perhaps.

I read them all but it doesn't conclude it seemingly just ends at a certain point. 

I'll check out Snyder's work. Did not realise it was an alternative universe. I am so lost in the DC world.

Yeah, Injustice riffs on the basic characters, but goes off into specifically a different universe. The current Brian Michael Bendis run on Superman and Action comics might be a decent starting point, actually, in terms of easing yourself in.

Would there be any interest in a Transformers thread? Not a day goes by when I don’t have thoughts, questions, musings etc about the G1 comic, Marvel cartoon, toy line, Earth Wars mobile game etc. Obviously it would be a catch-all with nothing off-limits, even the Bay films if so inclined. I know it has its own forums but I’d rather post about it here if anyone else would join in. Apart from Geoff, you’re a given.

Any other Trannies here?

Can't say I'm much of a Transformers fan Air Raid but I read through More than Meets the eye/Lost Light last year which was bloody superb.

More Than Meets The Eye (which, for those who don't know, becomes renamed Lost Light - only clarifying because I've seen people get confused when it's referred to by both names) is tremendous.

With all we know about fandom, who would have thought massively gaying-up (to use a technical phrase) the Transformers would have gone down so well with so much of the fan base? Obviously helps that it was consistently funny and emotional and thrilling stuff. And it all felt so organic. Genuinely great.

Was a humongous surprise how much I enjoyed it. Wonderfully paced and written. Also Getaway was a fantastic villain.

Recently, I got into pen-and-paper roleplaying - well, in theory, as it's been via an online platform. Currently playing a game that I'm enjoying massively called Lancer, a mech pilot RPG.

Anyway, the GM who organised the game mentioned that the author of the game had also created an online comic called Kill 6 Billion Demons, and strongly recommended it.

I started reading at the beginning of last week and am on Book 3 now. It's fucking brilliant. It's a fantasy adventure set in a universe that's a fusion of Hindu/Buddhist religious portrayal, Abrahamic cosmology, and all sorts of other cultures' mythos in between.

It's free to access online, although they also sell print copies if that's more your bag. I haven't yet tested out the RSS feed function on my tablet's gReader app yet though.
