Personally I think they could have excised the villain entirely.

Simply have the doc inadvertantly cause an issue with the bus driver causing him to be off work before they realise who he is and the part he has to play in the drama. Rest of the episode spent trying to put it right in time.

However, I reckon Ryan has set up a villain for the future...


Villain has device which sends foes into far future.


Villain gets sent far into the future by said device.


Of course they're going to be back!


(watch me eat my words if they aren't!)

I went on a bit of a hunt. It was recently for sale at the 2000AD stand at the NYCC, start of the month.

I’ve tweeted them to ask what the UK release date is - will see if I get a reply.

Once we have the stock in our UK warehouse we will be selling them through the webshop, just waiting on that slow boat....

Trying to work out how big that box is - looks like it should fit neatly on the shelf with various Munchkins and Chez games boxes?

I read "The Son" as a new beginning, rather than as an ending.

Anyway, if "The Son" is to be reprinted in another regular-style graphic novel likecthe rest of the Strontium Dog stories, we need more new material to fill out that volume. At the moment, the only uncollected Stront stories are The Son and the Dredd crossover "By Private Contract" from prog 2000. Unless there are already enough covers to fill half a graphic novel, we'll never see a complete run of Stront reprints. Even if The Son is reprinted in an Ultimate volume, it's not the same. I have a complete run of Stront and that's where I want to see the last Stront stories.

I count 46 covers on Barney
2000AD Stront (and Durham)
Starlord / Others

There's a few more on reprints, but I'm not sure if any of those were fresh covers. I think four of the US Reprints were new though.
One or two from the graphic novels.

Not forgetting the starscans (only seven more).

Jovis, my poor wallet  :o.

Great stuff, and loving the placeholder name "Anne Orther". I think the idea of covering the Corps and Titan (and Enceladus?  Mars?  Hestia?) in the Luna-1 supplement is a great one,  and hopefully shows the shape this range is going to take, not restricting itself to the epics themselves but expanding on their elements and settings.

Hope Mongoose and Warlord have some arrangement regarding the so-so RT kickstarted minis that seem to be still dribbling out.

I meant to ask if anybody has seen that King Carlos picture before - disclaimer said they were placeholder covers, so I'm guessing it's been used on a collection before?

As for the content - strange to call it Luna-1 when it could potentially cover any Dreddverse space strips (at least the local to Earth ones).  Hopefully they'll include the Anderson Goes to Mars story.

Woo-hoo!

So, once it reaches these shores, who wants a game at the Southern Contingent gathering (or Lawless next year)?

My take on things Strontium.

I would not want to see Johnny Alpha or the Sternhammers again (and this is from somebody who liked all the Starlord strips, plus the No-Go Job / Final Solution, so I'm not completely averse to other artists having contributed to the existing stories).  I'm completely fine with further adventures of Durham Red, Middenface McNulty (and his dug), Fuzzes, Maeves, and other stories set in the same milieu.

As for Spector - rights-permitting I'd either want what the current plan appears to be, or an all-star cast of writers and/or artists filling the rest of the pages, with original art or proceeds going to the family.

2 episodes of new series Spector which, according to Matt Smith in the latest Thrillcast, will be published next Summer along with 2 undrawn scripts.


So glad that they're going to see the light of day.

Warren Ellis only did one story for the Megazine (vol.1,No.7,1991) "Strange cases Feed Me" with Sean Philips
For a long time I thought Warren Ellis was about the only british creator who didn't work for HoT, only scraping in with an honourable mention with the Churchyard reprint, before Edwina's case was pointed out.

I remember HATING the Tom Baker 'victorian' control room at the time because it just wasn't sci-fi enough and didn't have the up-and-downy thing, I just thought it was silly. The Tardis is obviously capable of almost limitless changes, but in the past only changed in small ways - maybe it's some kind of Time War PTSD that made the Doctor start going for these underlit cavernous monstrosities rather than the former simple functional style


It's not the doctor changing the interior - it's the TARDIS herself.

IDW wasting no time releasing this mini, she lands next Wednesday.
Have to admit, I like this series-of-mini-series approach.
Easy to jump on / off, and a chance to try out new creative teams on old Joe.

Shame they don't seem to be as good as putting out decent ongoing series...

One thing, that strikes me as curious, from the inside POV, the police box seems to now be the porch of the tardis. I.e you don’t just see the front door, you see three walls, to the extent that when the Doctor first entered I wondered if there was something wrong and the inside had been displaced somehow. (I do remember that happening before in a previous episode.) But then she walks further literally through the space the fourth wall would be, and there it all is.


The same thoughts went through my mind (thinking that the relevant dimensional aspect of the TARDIS had broken, and it was just going to be a wooden box until something got fixed.
