Wow, Dante really goes off like a rocket doesn't it.  John Burns art is incredible and the switch between artists works so well to set the new mood going into those stories.  Then back to Simon Fraser for Battleship Potemkin which is an incredible cliffhanger to end on. How long have we got to wait for the next one?

Strontium Dog was also great, if slightly eclipsed by it's partner.  I actually read this one first as this series was one of the main reasons for subscribing in the first place. It's sad that Potrait Of A Mutant is still so relevant to today's politics but it really resonates with current climate (much as I'm sure it did back in the day).  The less serious episodes in here were great too, I think they've aged much better then the contents of vol 1.  Again looking forward to the next one but not with quite such bated breath.

For the record, I didn’t opt out and I only received 19 and 20 a couple days ago.

Hi folks.

Anyone on here know if Issue 13 (Volume 23) 'The ABC Warriors/Volume one' was reprinted/released twice? I have two copies of it and for the life of me dont know how. I remember picking up a 'double' issue from my newsagent. Ive checked both copies and cant see any printing errors etc.
Any help be much appreciated.

Thanks

I think that was the issue where the first one had a misaligned spine image so they reprinted and reissued.
