Let’s say if it was McMahon I’d be raiding my penny jar despite 150 being a absolute wedge of cash.
Wouldn’t surprise me to see Rebellion doing the same for the McMahon equivalent that’s coming down the pipe.

Yeah looking at this I realised I'd not bought similar volumes for Eisner, Jeff Smith's Bone or David Mazzucchelli's Born Again, so I couldn't justify going for this.

Now if that McMahon volume ever came to light that would be a MUCH harder question...

I was contacted about a McMahon Apex edition currently being put together, but when I told them what the two pages of his work that I owned where, they lost interest. Probably because they where ABC Warriors and Ro-Busters pages and not Judge Dredd.

Full Tilt Boogie gets an exclusive limited edition hardcover, but Thistlebone and End Of Days don't?

Thanks for confirmation, Greg. Although I could have sworn it looked like a colour-to-black and white reprint in my Ultimate Collection book!

You may be thinking of Torquemada's Second Honeymoon, which was in full colour by Kevin O'Neil. It has only been reprinted in garish black and white, but will be in full colour again for this volume.

Does anyone know how much of Nemesis (in its entirety) has been collected in the 2000AD Ultimate Collection thus far?

Everything except the Diceman strips.

The Diceman strips appear in volume 2 of the Rebellion collected edition, as well as volume 6 of the Titan edition.

So far just the Deadlock spin off series and the final episode that appeared in prog 2000 have not been reprinted.

Marshall Law was first published by Epic Comics (imprint of Marvel) but judging from its subsequent print history is owned wholly by Mills and O'Neill*.

Mills has alluded to the idea that the publishing rights for Marshal Law are now owned by DC.

Interesting.  Seeing as it was originally published by the competition and has been through a few other publishers in its time.  Has DC ever exercised that right?  I've bought up various ML series as they came out (except for the first one which I had to get in reprint form when it was serialised in Strip - The Comic Grows Up) so haven't kept up with what other editions it's gone through.

A quick check of my copy of the Collected Marshal Law, published by DC in 2013, and the copyright is to Mills & O'Neill. So if DC now own the rights to the character, it is because Mills & O'Neill sold it to them.

Over the course of the strips history, Marshall Law has been publish by Epic Comic / Marvel, Apocalypse Publishing / Toxic, Dark Horse, Image Comic and the collected edition by DC Comics.

A quick check of the recent Ro-Busters collected edition, and The Tera-Meks is copyright to Pat Mills, but no mention of Dave Gibbons who drew the strip and created their visual design.

I think you might be overestimating how much writers are concerned by how they are influenced by the work of others, and yet they can still be highly-protective of a specific version of a story they happened to have produced themselves.
Harlan Ellison sued James Cameron over Terminator, yet Ellison also dismissively points out that the basis of his own tv show was taken from a Robert Heinlein novel (although he erroneously identifies it as a Harry Harrison) in this rather lengthy dissection of the car crash that was The Star Lost and how it was just a mish-mash of other things.  I would recommend the bit starting around 13.30 or so for Ellison being quite unabashed about what derivative horseshit he knew was turning in, but he was still clearly possessive of it until he angrily rage-quit the whole enterprise.

James Cameron vehemently denies having even seen, let alone copied, Harlan Ellison's episode of The Outer Limits, Soldier. Having seen the episode, I tend to side with Cameron; they bear little similarity.

The Terminator does bear huge similarities to an X-Men story, Days Of Future Past. And Cameron is an admitted fan of the X-Men, and was at one point in the nineties  set to direct an X-Men film.

And to muddy the matters more, John Byrne, who plotted and drew the X-Men story Days Of Future Past has since admitted that he lifted the plot from a Dr Who episode, Day Of The Daleks (if you ever see this episode, made in 1972, it bears a shocking resemblance in both story and tone, to The Terminator, far more so than Ellison's Soldier).

Thanks for pointing it out. As it wasn't available on the 2000AD Online Shop, I hadn't noticed it.

Arrived in the post today.

While I am thankful that Rebellion is releasing more of its title in hardcover to satisfy snobs like myself, I find it frustration that they can release obscure strips in this format, but not popular 2000AD stories.

I suppose it will be too much to hope that they will give the hardback treatment to the 2000ad year stories now?  Probably not but we can live in hope, no?

Doubtful, so soon after the Ultimate Collection giving us just that.

Quite a bit of Strontium Dog Goes to hell featured painted or coloured art, and was apparently printed in B&W in the Ultimate Collection, so it may work to bring out a second volume.

Thanks for the update guys. No need for me to panic then.

Hopefully it'll arrive with my copy of Strontium Dog.

Just curious, has anybody received their limited hardcover edition of the Horned God yet?

It was supposed to be released last week. I appreciate that we are in the midst of the Covid-19 crisis, but it hasn't slowed down any of my other mail, and I was a bit worried as it is a limited edition, and I don't want to miss out.
