My copy of War On The Streets came through.  The repro on some of the Mega Rackets stories looks a bit heavy on the black.  Most of the text is, just about, readable but there are a few panels where it's obvious A LOT of the detail has been lost from the artwork and we're left with a mostly black square :(

What issue number is that?

That is issue number 88, it was the last book we got, volume 90, but it's number 88 in the collection.

I find a lot of the text is so blackened that it is damned near impossible to read.  Frankly, I haven't complained about any other book but this one has been an exception.

Anyway, I sat through and read the Strontium Dog Volume 4 in one sitting.  This is one I thoroughly enjoyed.  I don't remember Ragnarok or Rage, but the villain Max Bubba seemed vaguely familiar so it's possible I saw it years back.  Great stories all round.

That doesn't seem like a good sign for my replacement book. The text reproduction on mine really sucked badly and I think it's inexcusable. Honestly, if they can't do any better they should do a replacement book of different content, Black Atlantic maybe. It's not as if there's a lack of stuff to use.

Well I finished Bad Company last night.

To be honest, I found the first part a wee bit of a struggle in places and actually preferred the Bad Company II storyline.

Strontium Dog today though, that's something to look forward to.

I wish the Eaglemoss Star Wars one was sold in the UK, but alas, no.

its kinda sad some random guy on the internet can send you something faster than a company

Indeed that is true. :D

Still nothing so far, but it took long enough to get through to someone.  I have the sneaking suspicion that the replacement will probably have the same issues text wise.  Did anyone else get overly bolded text on War on the Streets?

Wonder how long it will take for my replacement and I'm sceptical as to whether it will be any better to be honest.

Finally got through to Hachette by phone.  The first number they supplied was not recognised but I got a second.  Heavily accented voice on the other end, Indian perhaps?  Nevertheless I was able to get through to the guy that the issue number and volume number weren't the same due to the release method and gave the name of the issue.

He took my details and said there will be a replacement sent out but I hope it's not got the same problems

Hachette continue to baffle.  I send them a message about the text quality in War in the streets.  I state that it was number 90 as an issue (ie the last one we got), but it was numbered as number 88 in the collection.

They reply asking if I would like a replacement for Number 92, which doesn't even exist?

Rather ticked off with the WH Smiths I order my 2000AD collection from.  Went in today and into the cabinet where my book is usually stored and nothing.  Some plonker had placed it on public sale.  Its a good job that it hadn't sold.  This isn't the first time this has happened.

Also, Ive already contacted them twice about the piss poor quality of some of the text in my last Dredd book and never got a reply.  Anyone got any ideas for an alternate contact method or any suggestions.  Most times I haven't been too bad but the text was so bad in some places it was unreadable.

What is Red Seas, and I'd like to see Leviathan as it was available easily for a short time as a trade but I missed out on it.

I guess with Rogue Trooper we're only going up till the 6 books that were originally printed on trade pre phonebook editions.  Namely the end of the Re-Gene trade?

Still not a huge fan of Slaine, but this volume seemed a lot more enjoyable.  Only thing is that the dungeon crawl story seemed to suddenly want to kill off a bunch of characters rather quickly, but then again high body counts are part of Slaine.

I can't say I'm looking forward to reading this.  I wish there had been a way to do a standing order at my newsagents and skip the Slaine books, but I held out thinking I might get to like it.  Of course I might like this one.  Nikolai Dante started out a bit middling if still decent and in the last book has really shot up in quality.

This isn't maybe the best place to ask, but I read that Disaster 1990 was a freebie in a Dredd Megazine.  Is anyone here willing to sell it, if they have it.  I realise it's probably nostalgia.

Okay, I read Kingdom volume 2 last night and enjoyed it.  Is there going to be another volume as I get the impression that there will be.

One story I've read a bit about I wouldn't mind seeing but I don't think we'll be seeing is Jaegir.

They really do have an appalling customer service department.

They HAVE a customer service department?
