Cry of the Werewolf  colour spreads!! Looks a good volume this. Personally I'd have liked Starborn Thing but you can't have everything.

Harmony on the other hand.... I don't even think I'll attempt re-reading this. Or am I misremembering it and it's actually half decent?

I don't recall much about Harmony, but don't remember it being among the 'never darken my door' strips. That volume is basically Harmony though – not a mix of characters. The Dredd volume looks like it could rival Mad City in my affections. Cover-to-cover goodness.

Great news that Nosferatu and Black Widow are appearing after the later Nosferatu story appeared in Total War. And that there's some annual & special stories in there too - this is going to be a pretty definitive collection, a few duff volumes aside. An index is still needed though!

Bit dissapointing that Independent Operators wasn't built mainly around Al Ewing's Tempest. Not really a favourite of mine, but, you know, it's Al Ewing!

I've not read any Harmony before, must have been released during my absence from the prog and meg.

Just from flicking through, I'm not getting a good feeling about it....is it worth a read?

Is anyone's #73 a mess? Mind has very light blacks on some pages of the lead strip, on which you can faintly see panels from elsewhere on the page.

Krysler's Mark now listed on Hachette site. What else will be in there beyond City of the Damned?

Quote
In his quest for the Judge Child, Owen Krysler, the boy that was predicted to save Mega-City One from a great future catastrophe, Dredd saw evil in the youngster and left him to his fate on the planet Xanadu. But the psychically powerful Krysler wants revenge on the lawman – as do the surviving members of the Angel Gang...

With Ezquerra, I'm guessing that this would be Destiny's Angels.  Jason Brashill?  'In the year 2120' from prog 1077.  Gibson had me scratching my head until I remembered he did one episode of City of the Damned.  IIRC the episode in which the mutant is attacked by Grunwalder's robot.

Jason Brashill = In the Year 2120.
Carlos = Destiny's Angels?

^ Anyone on this? Would be handy to know. (I just sent a mega-gripe over to Hachette. It'll be interesting to see what response I get this time. At a minimum, I'm after three replacements, but I pointed out seven books I'm unhappy with.)

Can’t see any problems like you say in mine. The ‘insert’ pages could be blacker, have some slight variation in the black that could almost be some other art but not the strip pages.
