Oh yeah, good point.  But in the absence of a Wagner/Ezquerra forum we could just make a bit of a racket in Tharg's basement until he gives them a call and mentions it?

Anyway, I reckon that with Colin & I we've got a definite TWO WHOLE VOTES so far, who else wants to chip in?

I thinkn there's a lot of people who want it. Might need to pester John and Carlos though not Tharg as as some said above its creator owned.

Shouldn't be a problem, should it? So was Button Man.

I'd do a Reprint This! on Al's Baby, if appearing on Reprint This! wasn't the kiss of death for Tharg giving us a nice bookshelf edition of what we want.

Maybe I will anyway.  Give me an excuse to reread the three series again...!

Go for it Grant.  At the moment we have precisely NO bookshelf edition, the worst that can happen is that this situation will continue.

Hi all,

If my memory serves me right Book 2 has been reprinted as the 2nd half of some foreign language versions of Al's Baby.

German and Dutch at least with a 'collected' Dutch version, although all done in the early to mid 90's.

Cheers

I have to join my voice with those requesting a nice GN of all three runs.  

And I'm not talking those little thingys they give away with the meg these days (lovely though they are).  A nice fat, glossy papered and available in bookshops and comic shops for the unwary to accidentally stumble upon and fall in love with.

Although if they DO do that, is it possible for Thargs print-bots to remove the Dreddworld framing sequence that I remember with a cringe?  Utterly unnecessary and dreadful.

It will be coming out in November and won't have the Dreddworld framing sequence.

I hinted to JW on Farcebook & he's said he'll no doubt talk about when he sees Carlos the day after next.. AB4 - if only it was really that easy!!
