We've seen him since - he got his very own (excellent) strip in Prog 2015!

The annual stories don't appear in the case files do they?

'The Restricted Files' volumes are all the Annual and Special stories. Max appears quite a few times in vol 1.

Durham would make most sense as vol.14, no?

Stront improves hugely very quickly. Vol 2 is almost a better intro to the strip than Vol 1, really - if it wasn't for the sole continuity-troubling appearance of the Weerd Brothers I'd have no hesitation about recomnending new readers ignore the numbering and dive right in with 2 before going on to 1. I think once you've read Johnny's origin's in Portrait of a Mutant, not to mention read the classic likes of Gronk Affair, Kid Knee Caper and Moses Incident - plus personal fave The Bad Boys Bust - you're going to be very forgiving and patient of the minor quality blip that is the atypical Galaxy Killers and meandering Journey into Hell (it's only as an intro to the characters and set-up that they clang a bit) and then the likes of Schiklegruber Grab is along not long afterward to get things right back on track.

Speaking of the spine art, are there two Choppers? In front of the Klegg and then next to Anderson?

Surely that's Spikes Harvey Rotten next to Anderson?

Guys Case files 30 worth a punt to someone who missed it first time around?


If you're more or less up-to-date with recent volumes then this is what the series has been building to for some time - arguably since volume 23! It's the last you'll see of Demarco in the main strip, for instance.

I must say I found Strontium Dog Vol.1 to be a bit of a slog. It got a bit better half way through once the art quality improved - not sure whether that was due to reproduction issues or production values at the time. But it still feels pretty juvenile.

Aye, Galaxy Killers and Journey to Hell are really not the best introduction to the characters and set-up. Such an odd way to introduce them to 2000AD readers. It does get loads better.

Turns out this is going to be the last series for Detectorists.

It always was...

 Jesus, there's  lot out of stock. Will they get any more copies? or once they're gone, they're gone kinda deal? I hope they get more in as I am quite new to the mega collection and only have 27 books so far. I'd like to one day get them all, but if some of them become out of print collector's items it will be a nightmare.

Early this year they had a 50% off January Sale and I made out like a bandit! Got so many of the books I had been meaning to pick up. They might do the same again in a month (but obviously that won't help you get the sold-out ones...)

The most controversial Slaine's been in years and I have no idea what the Mayor's opinion is...  :(

Now that we are getting Dante in 9 volumes rather than 11 it will be interesting g to see where the books divide.

The first book is all the 'Romanov Empire' TPB content plus 'The trouble with Arbatovs' and 'Cruel Britannia' (previously from the start of the 'Great Game' TPB). As a result Vol.2 should be able to fit in everything up to 'Last Dance on the TransSiberian Express'; if it's light on essay stuff then it could fit in 'Cruel Seas' as well, allowing Vol.3 to open with 'Courtship of Jena Makarov' and a whole heck of a lot of the Tsar Wars material...

Is it just me, or is there relatively little hype about this movie, considering that its barely more than a week from release? I'm really not hearing anybody talking about it in the real world, and no one's even posted on this thread for over a month...
I mean, it's obviously going to be a big hit and all, but I'm just not really feeling a palpable sense of awareness and excitement about this movie in the way I did in the run up to the release of Rogue One and especially TFA...

Speaking as a non-fan who watches the trailers out of curiosity... all looks pretty samey, dunnit? Chewbacca, Millenium Falcon, lightsaber battles, etc etc, same old same old - even more so than previous films. I don't see much to get excited about. It looks the absolute definition of 'generic Star Wars movie'.

Also the final cover for Nemesis volume 2:



Hmm. I don't love the colouring on that, but I suppose it will match that of the Book 1 cover quite well.
