Have A Very Merry Dreddmas

December 15, 2021

I mentioned on Twitter the other day that I’d spent hours putting together a reading list of all the Judge Dredd Christmas episodes, all the way up to this year’s Judge Dredd Megazine installment. To my surprise, a bunch of people wanted me to share the list, so… here it is, in chronological order, to the best of my abilities. (I’m sure I’ve missed at least one story off, but that’s what the comments are for. )

I’ve listed them in terms of the Judge Dredd: The Complete Case Files collected editions they appear in for the first half of the list, then we move beyond where those collections have made it to, which is more or less when the stories started appearing on an annual basis. Talking of annuals, when I list 2000AD issues as “Prog 20XX Annual,” I’m referring to the end-of-year specials 2000AD did from 1999-2014, which were all technically numbered as the following year — so, Prog 2004 was really published in 2003, and so on.

Whether you’re getting things through the Case and Restricted Files collections, or through the individual issues in the cases of the uncollected stories, digital editions can be found via the 2000AD webstore. And Merry Drokkin’ Christmas, to all who choose to read along.
