Any chance they will release Judge Dredd: Trifecta in paperback (instead of HC)? I like constancy and have been sticking to mostly softcover so far. I really want to read it so I may have to buy it regardless...

I completely missed that (Summer Magic news). Great news for those that don't own it. Not many to go now!

Presumably this means that MAC-1 has resolved issues he had.  And hopefully that means we might possibly get some continuation in the future?

This has come up before. I'm pretty sure Rebellion are confident that their legal advice on Zenith holds true for Luke Kirby as well. ISTR some comment on FB from MacKenzie that the new collection was news to him…

Si Spencer & Jake Lynch’s Scando-thrill HAVN debuts in Meg 382.

Has anybody mentioned elsewhere that this is the very same Meg that sees the fruits of Rebellion’s recent IPC purchase make it’s presence felt in the floppy? First cab off the rank is The Lawless Touch by Kelvin Gosnell (aka Starlord) & Barrie Look Out For Lefty Mitchell from the pages of Tornado

Jumping on Prog 2023 sees the start of a run of Dredds by John Wagner (remember him?)
First up is Get Jerry Sing with Carlos, followed up by the Mechanismo story with John McCrea which is entitled Harvey.

Also beginning in Prog 2023 are:

Pat Mills & John Higgins re-unite for the final series of Greysuit: Foul Play
The Fall of Deadworld: Cursed by Kek-W & Dave Kendall
Scarlet Traces: The Cold War Book 2 from Edgy & D’izzy
Defoe: Die Hards courtesy of Mills & Colin MacNeill

Oh & the FCBD 2017 Prog features:

Judge Dredd: Forty Years of Hurt courtesy of Matt Smith & Phil Winslade
Anderson vs Trapper Hag by Dabnett  & the wonderful Euro-stylings of Dani
A Blackblood solo story from Mills & Kel Zama
Hope by Guy Adams & Jimmy Broxton
The Dreams of Deadworld again by Kek-W & Dave Kendall

If there is nothing above that sends your thrill circuits abuzz then there is something wrong with you

She was the stand out of last year’s very fine FCBD prog, wasn’t she?

That's some remarkable thrills on the offing!

That FCBD has an excellent lineup as usual, putting all the others to shame!

Will be great to see Winslade on a Dredd tale, but all of it sounds like top draw stuff!!!!!  :)

Very excited and not entirely surprised to hear that the IPC stuff is being used to pad out the floppies. Tharg was getting low on the 2000ad stuff and not all of it will be commercially viable (I'm guessing) on its own and this is a wonderful way to get it out there and hopefully will have a bit of a boost for the Meg as well.

Good stuff Tharg and his minions.

& fingers crossed that the reason why they haven’t gone for The Leopard of Lime Street or New Statesmen (ahem) straight out of the gate is that Tharg is saving these gems for the trade. [/pure speculation]

When Interpreter Zhcchz of the Tau-Ceti Imperium crashed his ship into the small blue Hellworld -classed planet, the odds of surviving were stacked against him. Stranded in the polluted, hostile British city of Birmingham, 'Skizz' is befriended by Roxy, a plucky young local girl. But danger is ever present- from bad food to Prime MinisterThatcher s hostile government alien-hunters, this E.T. may soon be R.I.P!"



The Last American Paperback
Twenty years after a global nuclear war destroyed the world, Captain Ulysses Pilgrim is woken from suspended animation by three military robot aides.  Selected by his superiors to survive the initial onslaught, Pilgrim now has one last mission; to scour through post-holocaust U.S.A. in the search for other survivors.


Slaine - The Brutania Chronicles: Psychopomp
Albion, in a time of legend. Celtic warrior SL ÁINE united the tribes of the Earth Goddess Danu and became the first High King of Ireland, before returning to being a wanderer. Now, having journeyed to the Isle of Monadh to rescue Sinead from the Drune Lords, he’s discovered that they have been experimenting on their own creations — including the brutal, superhuman Primordial, whom Sláine has just learnt is his old friend Gort...

Survival Geeks, amedia-savvy sci-fi adventure! Aparody of contemporary geek culture, for fans of Fanboys and Scott Pilgrim.
When Sam wakes up in the house of a group of sci-fi fans, she becomes their reluctant new housemate... after the house turns out to be a piece of misfiring trans-dimensional technology!

The house takes them to places where no two-up two-down terraced house has gone before, from steampunk worlds to Lovecraftian elder gods. Armed only with their wits (and Star Wars trivia) the group of misfits must survive in whatever horrifying dimension or alternate reality they find themselves hurled into!

An affectionate parody of the most popular geek cultures, this quirky comedy adventure features steampunks, dark lords and cuddly Lovecraftian horrors.

Interesting, if those page counts are correct (which we can never be sure of ) that Brink would seem to be released as one series in a the trade? Hope that means we haven't got a long wait for book 2?

Skizz - hopefully this will be complete. Titan/Best of 2000AD/RebellionDC reprints have all had either 1 or 3 pages committed. Where the missing pages were reinstated, amendments to the opening text of the following page remained edited. Given that this is a stylistic feature of much of More's work, I'd hope that the original text can be reinstated, as well as the missing pages.

Lawless at 128 pages makes no sense which unfortunately calls into question other page numbers.
