I'm assuming it'll cover everything that ran under the 'Tharg's Future Shocks' banner, but I note that it includes the first Abelaard Snazz story, which was a Ro-Jaws Robo Tale.

I suppose you have to do that, as the second Snazz story is a Future Shock; miss it out and you don't have a 'complete' volume, include it without the first story and it doesn't make as much sense...

Weirdly, I can still see the photos even though I thought they'd have gone in Ye Greate Photobuckett Purge. Have broken links been restored? Can everyone else see them?

Yep, visible for me. Think there's been a change of management recently and they've quietly rolled back most of the recent changes.

Start of next year then given the current delivery schedule.

Dante 4 (issue 35) comes out in December, so... You're not far off at all!

...huh. I think I prefer the contents of the Rebellion softback, to be honest. I suppose this gives a better spread of Cam's many Dredd 'eras', though.

Under his own name, apparently - and doing a pretty creditable (but not slavish) Belardinelli impression -

Page count of remaining stories for volume 2 would suggest everything up to and including The Croakside Trip, omitting The Doppelgarp and The Garpetbaggers.

That seems to be the natural point for the split, doesn't it? Hopefully with the Annual stories included, too (I have seen a few colour pages of Stowaway Lugjacker online and oh my goodness it's gorgeous)...

Well, vol.21 is that rarest of things - something I haven't read! Ace Trucking Co. has managed to remain a rare but significant gap in my Tooth reading (at least when it comes to the real classics). Really looking forward to getting stuck in properly - if nothing else Massimo's art looks sublime, and the repro all looks tip-top.

It includes everything up to and including Too Many Bams, minus Hell's Pocket (the Ian Gibson-drawn story). It also has a two-page colour glossary at the back of the afterword (presumably the one from prog 232...?) which is a nice touch.

The other thing as well with regards to this issue is that whilst it is possible at present to pick up volumes from some high street retailers, that is a situation that is not likely to last much longer.

If they are relatively freely available in shops then it is clearly a problem in the subscription department rather than from the publishers.  Once that is the only channel open to folks then where is that going to leave the series?

Really good point. My newsie gets in a single copy of each issue, but I suspect they would have long since stopped stocking it if I wasn't buying that single copy virtually every fortnight. I'm almost scared to skip a volume!

"We are still waiting for the new dispatch schedule from the publisher as soon as its available we will adjust the dispatch dates."

But people are buying them in the shops already. Can't believe what a shambles they are making of getting books out to subscribers.

Not only that - my newsie often has them on the shelf the day before it's 'officially' out!

My favourite bit might be the John Titor reference.

... the kid with the baseball cap (is) surely an alt-verse Ash Ketchum and Pikachu...?

As Tomwe says, that's the kid from Flight Of The Navigator. You're not missing anything.

D'oh! Course it is.

I'm also going for Bill Murray from Ground Hog day as he has some kinda ground hog on his shoulder... this one is a punt

If you mean the kid with the baseball cap, that's surely an alt-verse Ash Ketchum and Pikachu...? Puxatawney Phil is represented on one of the banners on't ceiling.
