It's lovely to have everything under one cover, but the hardbacks are just gooooorgeous...

Ah, thanks. I didn't realise Ro-Busters originated in Statlord!

I think you're getting confused.  Statlord was the comic with numerically-themed strips, like Fiends of the Upper Percentile and Anderson: Phi Coefficient.

Do you mean Stairlord?  Y'know, the one which featured Stannah & Her Amazing Floating Chair and The ABC Bannisters?

OK, I asked for that.

The phone book I have is on crap paper. The hardbacks have colour spreads and much better production values. At the moment, you can get the phonebook second-hand for about the price of one of the hardbacks. Personally, I'd rather have the hardbacks. (Note that if you want to save a few quid, Wordery currently has the second one at a low price, too.)

From memory there were 2 floppies worth of material- so approx 110 pages. I'd have to dig 'em out to check what issues of the Meg they were with, though.

So last post in this thread on this topic, is there any legit way of getting the rest as Back in Action ended on somewhat of a cliffhanger?  As a further question, It seem to be true in Rogue Trooper we won't get the Dogs Trooper Intergalactic Hitman stuff that was a bit...off. However I liked the darker Rogue we got in the Realpolitik trade, will we get any of that?

Cheers.

I wonder how Are Trucking will look after all these years, certainly Bellardinellis art will be as mind bending as ever, having already sampled that in Meltdown Man.

Well, here's what everyone is going to want to know about Strontium Dog vol 1 - there are no colour centre spreads. Otherwise, though, it's the usual bang-up excellent repro job. Some of the strips look loads better than in my phonebooks.

What's in it. The only phone book I have is the one with Portrait of a Mutant in it.

Galaxy Killers through to Doc Quince Case, plus the customary essay and a few full-page colour covers.

Just finished the 'Kingdom' volume which I'd never read before - absolutely loved it!

The most involving and enjoyable 'new' strip I've ever read in the prog I think. By new I mean, post Harry 20, Skizz, Zenith Bad Company etc..

I went away from the prog for a while around the 1000s and came back again a few years ago so I caught the final 2 chapters of Kingdom.  Didn't really get into it then, but having read from the start I now can't wait for the next volumes and reading the last 2 chapters again.
