You have to be really careful here too, reading it on the 'recent post' thread.  If you miss which thread it really is on then brain takes a bit of time to engage.

Hats off sir, that is a cracker!   :lol:

I must admit that I'm not the biggest Slaine fan and would like a few less of that and some more volumes on other things, but I'll maybe change my mind.  Of course we all have our different tastes.  Some old stories date better than others. 

The trouble with saying that some of them have already been printed are that they had a fairly short print run.  Savage for example, look how much it costs to get The Guv'nor or Taking Liberties, ditto with something like Flesh.  Other stories like Mean Streets just don't date well at all, the whole future sports thing being a bit dodgy.

Amazon really are useless. I ordered four Kindles and they sent me a Two Ronnies dvd.

Bloody hell, took me a minute, but damn that is funny!

A collection that printed 'hidden classics' would be weird. If you have stories already, the fact you're blindly, unhappily, buying them again makes little sense to me.

Enjoyed that. Bit light on the quiz stories but we made our own fun...

My first post on here in God knows how long but I had to say that I think the choice of stories for this line is completely uninspiring. I realise that as someone who still buys the program every week and most trades I'm probably not the target audience but there are too many volumes on titles already in collected form. I'm going to keep buying every issue but I would have preferred that instead of x volumes on slaine and Strontium Dog reprinting titles already collected that hidden classics such as the Red Seas had been included.

Rant over, I would also like to say that I'm delighted this is happening at all and I hate to sound so miserable about it.

Weird Science was a bit of a mixed bag.  The Pussyfoot 5 stories were.....different, but amusing.  Did they do any others with that team?

Inspector Strange.  Despite what I initially was fearing I really enjoyed.  If Strange had been a TV series I could almost imagine him sounding like Gene Hunt. :) 

The Inspectre stories were in my mind really nice.  It was a revelation that by the end Primakova was a semi sympathetic character.  Wondering if what had been done to her had twisted her so much.

Cabal.  Sorry, I tried to like this, but what I think worked against it for me was the art.  I just did not like the art style, perhaps if it had been different.  Alternatively a reread later on might also change my opinions.
