The solo Walter stories were particularly weak, but agreed on the Giant story.

Most newsagents, places like Smiths especially when it comes to partworks only seem to stock the first maybe, 10 issues at most before going to an order only system.  You do occasionally see later ones on the shelves but I suspect this can be people who haven't collected or have cancelled a partwork.  For example, occasionally I still see the Star Trek collection.  Ditto with Batman but that's a lot newer so there's always the chance with them going on a bit longer.

I hope it wouldn't be another ten volumes of Slaine, there's so much more they could put in.

Well, finally got round to reading Zombo, and I'd say its....interesting, but to be honest not really my cup of tea.  Maybe on a reread, but I just didn't get why it was so acclaimed.

Did anyone else get some shoddy reproduction on the Wogue Wobots stories.
The Gibson episodes don't fare well, that's for sure.

That might have been the episodes I was thinking of.  Not all the book suffered from poor reproduction, but some parts did.  The sex crazed robots story was totally and utterly silly, but in a fun way.

Facebook revealed the title for the last remaining volume in the comments. Book 88: Crazy town. Hope it's a collection like Mad city and Tales of Ordinary Madness :)

Looks like the final set of books are:

86: Day of Chaos: Aftermath
87: Lawless
88: Crazy town
89: Psi-Judge Anderson: Dead End
90: War on The Streets

I think this is a nice line up  :D

Unfortunately no indications that there will be any Black Atlantic.....

Did anyone else get some shoddy reproduction on the Wogue Wobots stories.  I haven't read all the book yet but I found some of the reproduction on Robot Wars and the Walter stories a bit suspect.

Blood of Emeralds was a cracking read, even the short stories were a nice batch.  For instance, the one with the jumper, I wasn't expecting that in the last panels, thinking it was just going to be another normal (if such a thing exists) occurrence in MC-1.

Nice to get more on Texas City, their Chief Judge really did seem like someone you wanted to punch in the face from day one.  Is it me, or did Psi Judge Lewis bear a resemblance to some artists renditions of a younger Anderson?

Well I read Nemesis Volume 3, but then again I have the phone book editions.  I have to agree that I feel Nemesis peaked round about the time of the Gothic Empire.  Afterwards the stories were a mixed bag, some really good, some middling.

I know a large part of this collection is going to be long running stories like Slaine, Strontium Dog etc, but what will we get of Invasion/Bill Savage, and will we be getting Flesh or Meltdown Man?

I had an argument with my newsagent who said there was no way I could be getting two books for the price of one.  They also didn't get that the spine numbers and the issue numbers arent the same thing.

Can't say I'm familiar off hand with any of those stories, but names don't always mean anything.  Are we talking about earlier or later era Dredd?

I've got the Garth Ennis one, I agree it was great.  I see there's yet another 'remake', but the artwork on the cover doesn't exactly inspire confidence.

Books & Comics / 80's Dan Dare

I'm not 100% sure if this is the right place, but was any of the Dan Dare from the 'new' Eagle ever reprinted in trade form?  I know there were mixed opinions about it, and I do have some Dan Dare collections, both the Hawk and Titan ones of the original Dan Dare and the Garth Ennis one, but I did remember enjoying the 80's one.

I finished "Served Cold", all in all a really good book, though there were a couple of the shorter stories that weren't great.  Mainly for me the very last one with that wacky art style just didn't sit well with me, although I realise it was meant to be a bit off beat.

A damned good book, a couple of the stories had pacing issues being either slightly shorter or longer than they needed to be but enjoyable none the less.
