Well I finished the second Sam Slade book.  I really can't say its a series that has dated well, the whole "Year of Song" story with Iron Aggie was particularly painful.

Started reading the Robo Hunter book last night.  This to be honest is one of those strips that I really thing hasn't dated well.  There are other things that could have been in the collection.  Although I still think the sheer number of Slaine books is pushing it.

Read DR and Quinch/Skizz.  I can't say I really think much of DR and Quinch, plus I would say there are some text reproduction issues, especially on the bolded words.

Skizz, I thoroughly enjoyed, the artwork was nice, very olde worlde style from a previous era of British Comics I feel, but it did mention that the artist had done work on previous older titles.

Looking through some of the suggested greatests in that thread:

335 & 339 - Next volume of Rogue Trooper should give us 5 from both of these
228 - We've got everything but the Mean Arena already and we're not getting that
503 - I don't think we're getting that Dredd but I think we'll suspect we'll get the Slaine and Bad Company soon
653 - No Zenith :( and I'm not convinced we'll be getting that Rogue Trooper either
1634 - Don't think we're gettng Cradlegrave and with only 1 book of Savage getting to Book 5 seems unlikely
178 - No Dash Decent or Mean Arena but we already have everything else

Seems ironic that 415 is right in the middle of Time Killer.

We're only getting one Savage book?  I've already got Invasion, the Guv'nor and Taking Liberties, so I guess that means I'll be getting nothing new then?

Ro-Busters started in Starlord, appearing, if I am not mistaken, in every issue. If you want those stories, they have been reprinted in Nuts ‘n’ Bolts  volume one ( a sort of Mek Files but for Ro-Busters).

I already have the 'case files' size Ro-Busters that appeared a few years back, but was just noting how much was from Star-Lord.  I think some later stuff was 2000AD.  The artwork style changed dramatically as Starlords seemed far more detailed, though that's not to say that 2000AD's wasn't decent, just a different style.

Just what is Red Seas?

Here's a question.  I have the 'case files' edition of Strontium Dog, the one that had, among other things, Portrait of a Mutant.  Are all the stories in that book going to appear in the collection.  If so, I know someone who would be appreciative of the Case Files book, but I'm a bit reluctant to let go of one that will have stories that won't appear in the collection.

I also guess Ro-Busters wont appear in this collection, if so, that's maybe for the best as a large part of it appeared in Starlord and we might end up with the same difficulties we had with early Johnny Alpha.  Starlord seemed to have a significant chunk of Ro-Busters.

And still no damned response, any advice anyone?

Anyone arguing ten quid for a hardcover 200–250 page trade is expensive is nuts

Indeed, the Star Wars Mara Jade graphic novel I mentioned as an example is 144 pages, softcover and now costs £16.99 new, it cost £11.99 when first released in 1999.  Compared to the 2000ad and Dredd books that is fairly expensive.

Okay, I picked up Slaine volume 2 today.  I haven't opened the seal, but is it me or is there something that feels 'different' about this book.  I'm not sure if it feels thinner or what.  Then again I've not been feeling too well the last few days so it's maybe just that.

I remember some time ago during the Dredd collection someone commenting that these books were expensive, but I remember looking at the prices of say, Star Wars graphic novels, which if sold at their RRP could easily be £14-16 minimum, for a softcover with less content.  In retrospect, for a hardcover book I think these are very good value.  And for the content that was out of print it was cheaper than paying what some people on Ebay were asking.

Sorry for the double post and necro, but that's the 15th of August now, and still no reply.  There was an acknowlesdgement of the original mail but there's been no response.  This isn't exactly good customer service.  I think I will get back in contact.

So what is everyone's opinions of Meltdown Man?  I have the Ultimate Edition collection but I'm pleased to get a hardback book.  The story is decent and while it is dated to an extent, I like it.  The artwork is beautiful and some of the design work was really awesome.

So that's the 24th of July I emailed them directly. I got an acknowledgement saying they aim to deal with enquiries within 48 hours. As of yet, no further contact.

This is most unsatisfactory. It's the only time I have contacted them and I'm starting to see what other people have been complaining about regarding their customer service, or lack thereof.

I contacted them on the Facebook page, but have since contacted them directly through the email link.

Still no reply from Hachette about the last of the Mega Collection and its reproduction issues.  Not good at all.
