Hoping that The Scarlet Cantos makes it into the Ultimate Collection.
Matt confirmed a while back that the three Rebellion paperbacks (Scarlet Cantos; Vermin Stars; Empty Suns) were effectively being combined into a single Durham Red hardback in the UC.

It's daft. The sensible thing would be, as you say, a public post. And just get the standard books out ASAP. They're an odd lot.

Also, this just makes them come across as poor from a customer service standpoint, when in fact the company is, broadly speaking, pretty good. (I've had quite a few book replacements. I've never had to send anything back.)

I figured it might be something like this. Daft, really.

Well, as someone who's been a bit down on the Prog of late, this one really hit it out of the park. A nice cover and a great set-up in Dredd, with some superb Weston art (apart from, again, this weird tendency from most 2000 AD artists to default to every Judge being a bloke). Here's hoping Gerhart gets through this, and Dredd continues to recognise he needs allies.

Jaegir's not put a foot wrong so far, and so it continues here. Coleby/O’Grady are in fine form on art duties.

The Future Shock and Sin/Dex were quite light in nature, but worked very well for a jumping-on Prog, adding some strips that were self-contained, smart, and amusing (if, in the Future Shock's case, very black humour).

Anderson: nice to see Roach back on art duties. Script-wise, good to see Beeby get another run at the character. Also, well done to Roach for not making Anderson – who's now, what, 50-odd? – look like a glamour model.

Judge Fear: I'm not too fussed about the change in art style. Cornwell provided some creepy stuff, and a good sense of pace and layout variation. It in some ways felt a bit old-school in nature, which worked well for me. Script-wise, it was good again to see Kek-W showcase the power of these undead foes, and make them genuinely scary.

Strontium Dog: almost feels like a return to the status quo, which I won't complain about. Honestly, I was not a fan of that entire war arc. This looks like it'll be some really solid Stront.

Next issue: Dredd/Anderson/Sin Dex/Jaegir/Strontium Dog. Nom.

Hoping for lots of undead/monster cannon fodder we can all be happy to see the heroes kill without blinking!

Also, that makes no sense given that people without the figure don't have their books either. Sounds like there's been a production or logistics cock-up somewhere along the line.

and also the complete Friday
I suspect that wouldn't be the best-selling book from the house of Tharg. (That said, a War Machine book in the 2000 AD UC, with a few back-up strips from Smith and Fleisher could work.)

Nope – nothing. A replacement I requested hasn't shown up either. Bah.

I finished Served Cold last night. I think that's one of the best books in the entire collection. In fact, it would have been criminal had this been omitted had the collection only been 80 books, given the likes of Heavy Mob. The only bad thing about it is it makes me realise how much I miss Al Ewing on Dredd.

Dunno how I missed the Tom Foster one. That was great. And, man, he needs to be in the Prog a lot more.

Clicks link. Sees "You purchased this item on 5 Nov 2008". Look at shelf, featuring unread book. Bloody hell.

Junker was reprinted in a Megazine floppy a few years ago.
It was? I don't remember that.

There have been numbers since that put the figure higher than 50m, largely on the basis of people returning to the city. I don't have an exact figure to mind, but I recall it being in the 70s.

For the Tories, Sovereignty equals whatever is in the best interest of themselves / their donors.  Clearly the Skripral incident has got their Russian donors spooked.To quote Camelot, "it could be you!"
It's terrifying. Brexit is spiralling out of control. It was never a good idea anyway, but could at least have been handled in a way that didn't wreck the economy and the social fabric of the UK. (The smart move – beyond not doing it, after a period of due diligence – would have been joining EFTA and entering into a customs union, but no. We just get idiots yelling IT WILL ALL BE FINE, when it very clearly won't be.)
