When does IST update their new books? 12:00pm PST? I was able to add Daytripper to my cart and it was sold out as I started to check out.

Skip issue one since Judge Dredd starts with the second issue. Then read all 2000 issues since then in order.

The thing is that what people talk about from 2000AD are ongoing stories from an anthology. So you generally don't go "Start with July 10, 1982", people just read whatever story catches their eye. Judge Dredd is overwhelmingly the most popular feature to come out of 2000AD and his heyday was the early 80s, so Case Files 2-6 cover all the popular early stories (cursed earth, dark judges, Judge Cal, judge child, Apocalypse War). Most of the other popular series aren't as overwhelming as Dredd and you can just start at the beginning and read through.

Asking where to start with 2000AD is like asking where to start with Marvel Comics. It's an enormous question with no real answer.

Yeah, pick up the latest prog (issue) and go from there. The issues that have the start of the current stories are easily enoguh to get and are, at most, from 6-7 issues (and keep in mind those are weekly) back.

I recomend always buying off of the web store (and not the app) if you're going digital though as the digital versions on the webstore come in PDF/CBZ form and the app is a bit crap.

Oh and there's a ton of free comics on the web store too including the Judge Dread Casefile that has the Block Mania / Apocylipse war serials in them so you're not lacking for starting points.

I might have a lead on some Kate Spencer Manhunter trades. Are they worth picking up?

What I've read has been decent-to-good. Ollie's Bargain Outlet used to have a bunch of deeply-discounted Manhunter TPBs, and I often wish I had picked them all up.

Is the walking dead humble bundle deal worth it? £14.50 for all the comics seems like a bargain but is the comic any good?

Iím a bit biased because I got to meet Charlie Adlard when he came to Tokyo but I really liked it.

Itís much better than the show and it reads quickly. Iíd love to read it without pausing sometime (if there werenít so many issues)

Gummy Bear Heaven ... It's where I go when the world is too mean.

It's soap operatic in the way that it's an easy read that really pulls you along with the desire to see what will happen next. It's lots of slow character builds with the tensions of knowing something bad will happen, but not knowing what.

I don't regret reading as much as I have (about half), but I also don't have much desire to get back into reading it.

For £15, you should be able to get a few days/weeks of enjoyment out of it, even if you tap out after a while.

There's a reason it exploded into an international phenomenon.

I read the first 50 issues and got burnt out very quickly on the misery porn of it all, but it is well written (if not repetitive) and if you like character drama amongst death and zombies give it a shot. The price is right at least.

Cheers! You've convinced me. I'll have to check that website more often, I would definitely have got the Hickman bundle they did.
