Does anyone know if the Slaine volumes will comprise the entire run?

You'd bloody hope so, with 13 volumes...!

I think Johnny's all too aware of his own tendency to brood - that's exactly why he kept around a larger-than-life Norse warrior and a gentle, loyal little Gronk. There's no doubt that it's in Rage that he's pushed over a precipice that he never entirely comes back from - giving himself totally over to the coldness that Nelson Kreelman beat into him. Middenface and others slowly pull him back from the brink, but I don't think we ever really get back to pre-Rage Johnny. And that's before the Final Solution fiasco, his own death, rebirth and being just a whisker too late to stop the sterilisation of all Britain's mutants!

Boy's carrying a lot of baggage.

Yeah, I wouldn't worry unduly Pale Fire. It's par for the course with partwork magazines; no real comment on a particular series' viability.

Yeah, given the continued plaudits for Kingdom it's a bit baffling that the earlier Abnett/Elson collaboration has never been collected in its entirety, under one cover.

I hope it does, despite the current niggles. I'm not sure I'd want some Marvel-style open-ended thing, and I'd hope Matt would be quite choosy about what's included so we don't end up with Dry Run or something. But there's a lot of content I'd be happy to see in these hardback volumes: pretty much anything by John Smith (not least Indigo Prime, but also Firekind/Leatherjack/Cradlegrave), Armoured Gideon, VCs, War Machine (if it's not in the Rogue books) and a carefully hand-picked slice of post-WM RT, Starlord-era Strontium Dog, Jaegir, Button Man (if rights can be sorted), Scarlet Traces, Flesh, Leviathan (somehow – not sure what you'd twin it with though), The Red Seas (complete, if possible), Grey Area, Fiends of the Eastern Front, Ichabod Azrael…

...Atavar, more Sinister Dexter, Lobster Random, Damnation Station, Absalom, more Future Shocks, Aquila, more Savage - sooo much potential still to be mined.

Also, does anyone have the Starlord 1982 Annual who'd be willing to do the same...?

Cheers Tim, PM sent.

Hope David doesn't mind me co-opting his thread, but while folks have got their Star Lords and scanners out... If someone was amenable to making hi-res scans of the Stront episodes from issues 2, 8 and 22, that would really help me out with a little project of my own...  :D

And while I'm talking Case Files, can we agree that the cover of the forthcoming Vol.32 is a thing of absolute mastery?


Ooh, we've finally made it up to where I started reading the prog!

It really is a cracking volume. I was hoping really for a book of the first three series only, to leave things on a more conclusive, final note - but actually Planet Zombo is left on much less of an open cliffhanger than I remembered, not least in the fact that, with only two exceptions, the entire supporting cast are dead!

Bit annoying that the Planetronix solo isn't included when Al Ewing's rhapsodising about it in the essay and calling it 'probably the best thing I've ever written'...!  :lol:

Can anyone give us a breakdown of the contents of 17 & 18?

17 is the complete Zombo from the pages of the prog, but not his appearance as Z.O.M.B.O  in the 40th special.

Wow, really? All four books? I was expecting just the first three.
