The Thirteenth Floor Volume One
« on: 20 October, 2018, 11:16:02 pm »
I just got the standard edition but what a lovely book with a nice foldout cover and some extras in the shape of some covers and intros from Alan Grant and Ian Rimmer.

The reproduction is mostly great with only a few episodes seeming a bit blotchy.

As an original reader of Scream and Eagle this was a real treat and even though the premise got a bit repetitive they soon branched out and hopefully that will all be seen in Volume 2.

Lovely book and well worth £15 -wish I'd splurged for the Max edition now!

I was also an Eagle and Scream reader and I will always have fond memories of The 13th Floor. I never read the Scream episodes so I got this immediately when it was released. This was a great treat, with some great art by Ortiz. Nostalgia at its best.

The Max edition was well worth the splurge and I for one am glad I went with it.  Never read the Scream episodes either so that segment has been a pleasurable new excursion.  Yet to find any fault in the repro but I'm taking my time over this (well, okay, I've also got the latest volume of Inside Moebius on the go as well ...)

Hardback copy landed today, absolutely stunning edition. The cover is a great bold choice. Love seeing the Brett Ewins cover too. Ortiz is such a great stylist - always loved his Burton and Cyb stuff. One of those prolific artists English-speakers only saw a sliver of his work.

Just a great collection. Hurrah for The treasury of British comics project.
If I'd known it was harmless I would have killed it myself.
