I might be in the minority but Vector 13 would make a nice collection...
Finn certainly!
Amen to Canon Fodder
(You can tell I joined the prog in the 90s can't you!?)
The thing that's really put me off this run is the sheer number of volumes for individual series. I couldn't care less for Slaine, some of Strontium Dog, same goes for ABC Warriors, Rogue etc. I think it's much more exciting when we get shorter single books or 1-2 volumes of other stuff.

My Ro-Busters book is patchy - I thought it was my eyes on first glance but some parts definitely appear washed out/faint.

They do seem to have some serious printing issues though. I just read through Armitage: City Of The Dead, and the print in my copy shifts from deep blacks on one spread to a much lighter on the next alarmingly often. Not sure whether to ask for another copy. (Anyone else had this with that book?)

At the risk of being unpopular can I ask about:

Finn
Harlem Heroes

And how about a collected Vector 13 volume. No? :p

Just FYI - you can now add your subscription number to the Hachette site without getting an error. I'm all subbed up for first free issues!

And weirdly (despite signing-up about a week ago), I just received a direct debit instruction for my subscription.

Christ, that cover is a work of art. I didn't think it possible but It's even lovelier in the flesh.

Echo the comments about the spine artwork. It doesn't really feel encompassing like the Mega Collection. Needs far more characters and change of colour palette!

Also want Canon Fodder...  😅

How about a collection of Vector 13/with Black Light
Finn
Harlem Heroes (would that make me unpopular?!)
Mazeworld
Bad Company is a must

I've unearthed a smattering of issues from this short-lived Dredd spin-off back at my family home. Thought I'd post here just in case anyone wanted them (else they'll go to the landfill!)

I appear to have various issues starting from 1.

Cheers!

Megazine / Re: Suggestions for the floppy

I've got a special place in my heart for Finn, as 'Interventions'(?) was just kicking off in the prog when I started my 2000AD journey. Plus it helped that Finn looked badass and the Witch/Sorceress was always in skimpy clothes.

I picked up the first Finn stories in a Classic 2000AD issue, and seem to remember a later series which was something like 'Season of the Witch'?

I'm a fan of Slaine, but feel like it's gone rather off the boil these days so would like to see Finn make a return really...

Annoyingly I can't find the Meg this month anywhere (not even the faithful London Victoria store has any). Will have to be a trip to Forbidden Planet I think

More Finn then you expected, more then you wanted.
Not according to the Mills interview on ECBT2000AD...

There's an episode of The Young Ones in which Rik tries to convince Neil that he was the most popular person in his college class and "everybody thought I was great."  I'm reminded of that every time Pat goes on about how incredibly popular everything he ever wrote was and how those fascist editors were wrong, wrong, wrong.

I'll stake a crusade. Z
I quite like both Crusades. The Dredd one is easily the best of Me & Gwant's longer efforts on the character.

There were two Crusades? I have a soft spot for the first(?) one, around prog 921 I think it was. My first prog! Previously my dad had bought me an American floppy that included Robo Hunter, followed by a Meg (The Tenth Planet/Wilderlands)... I still remember the cover strap 'meet the Inquisitor this prog!

Not central per se, but Victoria station Smiths had them in a metal stand when I visited on Thurs. I managed to grab the last but one copy, must have been popular by looks of things?

Still not seen it in any shops in Central London

It certainly was! I'm kicking myself (still) that I decided to start collecting the mighty prog a whole week AFTER this was on the shelves. Sods law eh?!

Classifieds / Looking for Prog 1771
« on: 20 April, 2012, 01:46:36 pm »
Greetings scoundrels!

I have arrived here from my long-suffering homeworld of MSFT 5. After zillions of years spent scouting the outer nebula of Kryx and nearly coming a-cropper when my craft encountered some Justin Bieber-loving Space Pirates - I find myself in dire need of the fabled Prog 1771. I care not for alternative covers or any such nonsene, I just want to feel the fine inks and tales of heroics found inside this humble tome.

eBay bears no fruit. I may have to resort to trudging the comic book emporiums of London town.
