Very much enjoyed Brett Edwins' art on From Hell to Eternity, think this was his last work on Rogue. Also intriguing that Boluda did a few highly detailed episodes without much other work for Tooth. And Cam is the man, as ever, enjoyed the Gasbah particularly.

I stand corrected on two counts. Brain must have had an attack of Thrill-suckers due to missing issue 44.

I collected Rogue volume 3 from the Thrill-merchant this morning, hopefully SinDex 2 was just a glitch. Contents are Eye of the Traitor to Milli-Com Memories, which along with Matt Smith's intro stating the next volume covers 1984-85, suggests there'll only be room for the original run up to the Jose Ortiz stories. It'll be a shame if Cinnabar isn't included, as aside from some future shocks (hopefully), and pending any announcement of an extension, John Smith's work is a glaring omission from this collection.

Thanks for the replies. I'll give it until tomorrow then order from FP if it doesn't appear. WH Smiths don't have it either.

Still a no-show of SinDex 2 at the Thrill-merchant. Has anyone ordered individual issues from the Hachette website, and if so are they reliable? Thanks.

The latest issue has been a no-show at my local Thrill-merchant. They got in touch and were told it was delayed and would be Tuesday or Wednesday. I'm wondering whether the subscriber issues are spilling over into the distribution network.

That's a very plain background. Interesting also on their site how many recent issues are OOS. I'm also a bit annoyed that I haven't yet been sent the much-loved thrill Classic Routemaster 37, despite it having been released in October: https://hachettepartworks.com/2000-ad-the-ultimate-collection?page=3

(That said, those photostrips were always a bit duff.)

Looks like there'll be some Brit-Cit stories in that one. As we've had Armitage and Lion's Den in the Dredd collection, does this mean we're finally getting The Straitjacket Fits?

The next unknown issue is 49. With no more Slaine for the next 8 issues, and with 8 more volumes of him to come, it looks like there'll be on average one Slaine volume out of every 4 for the last 30 issues. Hmmm....although I am looking forward to all the art.

Their site is showing issues 37-39 out of stock and only a few left of 40. From a Thrill-merchant order point of view, I think every issue has arrived on time, following a few misses with the Dredd collection. You subscribers have my sympathies, and in the hope of you receiving issue 40 soon, it contains:

The High King
The Jealousy of Niamh
Demon Killer
Queen of Witches
The Return of the High King
The Name of the Sword
Lord of Misrule

Collected Robo Hunter volume 3 from my local Thrill-merchant this morning. To my surprise there was a copy of The Horned God attached. An enclosed note says there was a small misprint on the spine which this copy corrects. This happened before with one of the Nemesis volumes, didn't it? I'm not sure if I would have noticed or been too bothered if I had, but there it is.

Revere and Cradlegrave. The Dredd collection recognised John Smith, the least the Tooth collection can do is the same.

A belated big thank you to Molch-R and the team for the completion of this series, it shows what a great legacy of stories 2000AD has produced over the years. I kept asking for it to be resumed during a lull, and it's a great tribute to stories old and new. Bravo.

Sad news. Ron drew Dredd in my first Prog (377) so my first impressions of the character were formed by him. The Stupid Gun, Pirates of the Black Atlantic, The Graveyard Shift...the list goes on. And his work on the Daily Star strips was sublime. RIP Ron.
