I'd really like a book of artists/writers and a list of the stories/volumes so I could find stuff.

I reckon Kenny Who will make it into the last books of the MegaCollection. It's been in print before & is always a favourite. Are there other 'art in megacity' stories it could be filled up with?

I've come late to Dante, I've always been put off collecting all the volumes but the 2000ad collection will change all that. It's great to read a swashbuckling & romantic hero. I guess Strontium Dog kind of flirted with Durham Red but we've rarely seen much sexuality or humanity since Halo Jones. I think the draw of Vertigo comics stopped my enjoyment of the prog way before Dante and I stopped buying it. Dredd in particular seemed dull and staid, when many 2000ad creators were exploring sexuality, magic & weirdness for DC. I wish I'd known about Nikolai earlier - it was so easy to think 2000ad was chasing its tail, rebooting & rehashing. The prog seems much healthier now, but I'd still like to see more 'real' relationships. It's great thinking the likes of Brink & Lawless can have time for developing characters, and Dredd seems more dimensional around Vienna or Demarco.

You never see Inspector Jehrico Strange and Dark Judge Mortis together do you?

I thought Justice League was pretty good. It had to introduce 3 new characters, bring superman back to life and reconcile the 4 previous movies. It's no classic but it manages to make all 6 characters likeable and even inject positivity into the DC world. My kids loved the Flash & I'm looking forward to whatever comes next. Batman v Supes was a terrible doom laden mess which this pretty much manages to get rid of the taste of. Not sure why it's getting all the hate.

I really wish City of the Damned had been a Steve Dillon epic, I find the mishmash of artists (all great individually) very distracting. For years I loved the Titan book with the ghostly Sienkiewicz cover. 'Weird Science' is a good idea for a book. It's a bit of a John Smith-fest, with Strange & Darke - please Tharg can we have more of this? Colin MacNeils art has never been better coloured.

Vice Press have released a second wave of reasonably priced 2000AD prints today - many of these were on show at the hard-to-find Thought Bubble related gallery.
I don't remember seeing the amazing Tula Lotay Anderson before - simply wow!

That's great news about the tpb & new series. It's a great comic.

Can't wait to see Halo in colour. Anything that allows you to re-experience art like that is welcome. I'd love to see more colour strips - Talbot's Nemesis?

Nemesis does not have colour center spreads - all story art is b&w. It includes the Kevin O'Neill drawn book 3 and finishes with the sword sinister & secret life of blitzspear. The repro looks good to me. The next Nemesis book should be a Talbot extravaganza?

Nemesis & Kingdom arrived today & look great. Nice to see the colour Nemesis covers reprinted even if they are shrunk down. Great to see the text pieces. Is that all the Nemsis material before Gothic Empire?

The order has been cynical and a major negative for this series. Not seeing Chopper before Oz, releasing the Doomsday volumes months apart, Armitage book 1 is yet to come out. It's bizarre...
