Hi guys

I won't spoil anything but I thought this week's 2000AD/Meg crossover was incredible fun.
I'd like it in a more permanent edition (hardback)
And if there were any more tales that could be told, I think there's alot of fun to be had in an extended edition.

Well done to all - not least Leigh Gallagher and Henry Flint...

Book Palace copy arrived today.
I thought it was great. Glad they left in the sellotape marks etc.!

Charley's War vol 2
Invasion - Pat Mills

Judge Anderson PSI Files Vol 2
Rogue Trooper Tales of New Earth Vol 3

(any others...?)

It's really exciting to know there's a whole comic in Battle that I know very little about.

Any chance of providing a volume way (ie Digital bundle) to open up all these great stories like HMS Nightshade etc.

It am not sure this is a make-over it has been like this for a long time

You are correct

Clearly I wasn't bored enough to visit in lockdown!!

I love Digital comics because I'm running out of room.

But they are relatively heavy files to store on a tablet so inevitably they end up on a hardrive and once they are out of sight, they are out of mind.

I would pay more for a Digital version but with the format (presumably memory sticks or even cool looking DVDs) sat inside a hardback spine so I could see them on the shelf.

I know this sounds a but antiquated but the container itself could have extras or art prints.
It's not that different to the Warner Bros releases of big albums like Prince Sign o'the times. You get the download files but a physical version that looks great on the shelf

Rogue Trooper volumes would have to be on three familiar memory chips thought, right?

The Bolland book is still available through the Book Palace https://bookpalace.com/

My copy bought from the 2000AD shop is also in French

There appeared to be a lot of interest in the 2000AD prog zero and the banned issue of Action that came with the Action 2020 Special.

So my idea would be as a premium subscription re-issue the first year of Action/2000AD as a flipbook prog by prog - so in week one you get 2000AD prog 1 back to back with Action 1.

I think a lot of people would love the subscription idea of a 'first year' collection of both titles - back to back - so they couldn't be mistaken for the originals...

The only thing I'd add is you will only receive access to the Prog on the Wednesday retail date (not as early as the Saturday before as we benefitted from as physical subscribers)

I only mention this as it annoyed me a bit. Still not sure why you can get a printed copy mailed to you before a digital one...!

I don't think its controversial to contend that the Annuals are ALL worse than any given Xmas Prog, and indeed contain a worse concentration of thrills than almost any weekly Prog...

2000AD-wise I'd agree but the 1981 & 1982 Dredd Annuals are astonishing with three fully-painted McMahon stories in each. So they are rather special.

The blog is great by the way. Love it.

Ah man, it'll feel like sacrilege sticking those cans in the recycling...

PJ - the label is designed to be removed and stuck in a book. It sort of peels of and you keep it with all the others.
It's pretty slick. So no Jock in the bin.

It's Orbitron.

I got a pack downloaded for my Mac to design The Complete Lawman of the Future
