If you're into Peter Bagge you can currently get the Complete Neat Stuff double hardback set for under £20 from Book Depository via Amazon at the moment (RRP apparently £53.00, Amazon have it listed for £37). As a 3rd party seller I'm not sure how many copies they have though.

Well this has landed on my return from holiday and by all that is unholy this is a wonderous thing. One of the best things I've spent £20 in my misbegotten life. Its just magnificent. Amazing production value and flicking through the two volumes comics I'm very ready to revisit. Superb and if you've not picked this up and have £20 licking around you'd be a fool not to pick this up.

bernardsfingers I salute you.
Ha ha, well thanks I guess. I bought The Bradleys paperback collection plus the last Hate collection (Buddy Buys a Dump) a couple of months back which led me to eyeing up the Neat Stuff collection for a while, but with no real expectation of actually buying it at the £30-£40 asking. I occasionally check prices of a few books on my want list using a price comparison site and just randomly saw it had dropped to £20, so jumped at it. I wasn't sure what to expect when my copy arrived - it's a nice set but chunkier than I anticipated (I tried to find a video review on YouTube to gauge the size) so I've had to do yet another bookshelf shuffle and chucked some stuff on eBay to make room.

I'm slightly gutted as I only recently paid more than this for a slightly battered copy of book 2, plus around £30 for book 3. They are good books so I'm not too fussed. I wish I was more patient and just waited for prices to drop but once I've got it in my head to buy something I find it hard to resist.

Just seen Amazon have two of the three deluxe hardcovers of Saga for sub-£20 - book 2 for £17.25 and book 3 for £19.46. They are generally around £25-£30 each so decent price if you're looking for them.

I think Neat Stuff was just on the final couple of issues when I first read it - one of my mates at school lent me a couple of back issues. I bought a few back issues & some of the collections but I'm it's so long since I've read any of it I'm hoping it's still funny. I must have been about 14 or 15 at the time and remember laughing at the more puerile gags. Hate coincided with getting into booze, smoking and drinking and I loved it - still got the comics stored at my mum's house. Wasn't too keen on anything he did afterwards though (sweatshop, yeah!, etc). Anyway, I've bought this but I'm currently at full capacity at home so not sure exactly where it will go. I'm kinda operating a one-in-one-out policy and chucking stuff on eBay when I get the chance to make room but it's a slow process.

Zavvi are doing a deal on 10 DC graphic novels for £19.99 (plus £1.99 postage) with a fair selection to choose from, although it's still a stretch to find ten for me.

They've taken £15.99 from my account so I'm just going to assume they know something I don't.

65/66 here also, in a card envelope that looked like someone had given it a serious kicking. I took photos, expecting another replacement request was imminent. Somehow, the books are both fine. I’ve no idea how. (There was an actual chunk missing from the envelope.) That Strontium Dog book is a bit chunky, isn’t it?

Also, my delivery note said I’d be charged 40 quid, for some reason. So I need to check on that. Again.
Ha ha yeah it's about twice the size of the accompanying Slaine book (or is that one particularly slim?)

Anyway, it seems that Hachette's accounts have gone slightly screwy. I've since checked my Hachette account & that shows standard payment of £22.98 is due.

I had actually contacted them a week or so back to ask about the fact they hadn't taken the payment for 63/64 & was told that a payment of £15.99 was due to be taken shortly. This confused me (obviously) & I asked them to confirm that I wasn't somehow being charged for the covers special (which I have asked not to receive several times previously) but they said no, it's for the latest delivery. Now the books have arrived & I am indeed being charged £15.99 it's unclear what I'm actually being charged for.

Now I'm hoping they take a payment - whether it's £22.98, £15.99 or even £45.96 (ie the actual amount I am due to pay for the last 2 sets of books) - as don't want to miss several months payments due to their incompetence & then hachette suddenly try to take the while lot in one go.

My copies of 65/66 arrived today with the 5th premium figure (all in the same box but seemed to be packed securely & with suitable padding in the box to stop everything moving around). The figure of Judge Dredd is actually really good & I'm quite impressed.

Strangely, the delivery note that came in the box said I would be charged £15.99 for some reason rather than the standard £22.98 for the premium subscription - it says Parcel amount due £22.98, Total amount due £15.99. I'm not sure why this is. Hachette still haven't taken payment for the previous delivery of 63/64 either so God knows what this all means.

Has anyone here not had the latest payment taken (for issues 63/64)? My hachette account shows payment on 14th Feb which usually means the payment actually leaving my account 2 weeks later (this has been true for as long as I've ever bothered checking). However the most recent payment which should have been taken on 28th Feb wasn't taken. Just wanted to check if this was/wasn't the same for others before chasing it up.

Sooo .. here is a question,

Does anyone know what it happening with the premium figures? The last one i got was rouge - and I thought there was supposed to be 6 - every 7 deliveries or so - so i am guessing the next one would be due soon ?
Last figure came with issue 51/52 so next one is due with 65/66 I guess.

I've seen lots of people complaining about not getting any response to messages but I sent a message via FB messenger on Saturday (1st Feb) about one of the books in latest delivery being damaged (due to being delivered in a plastic bag) & received a reply on Wednesday (5th Feb) to say they're arranging a replacement. Whether a replacement actually arrives is another thing but I've found them to be generally fine the 5 or so times I've needed to contact them.

Just tried to buy Strontium Dog volume 6 (issue 52, vol 9) and it’s out of stock. 😬

Forbidden Planet hasn’t got it either -online or in the London shop. No luck at Orbital either 😢.
I've got a replacement copy of Volume 9 on the way due to spine printing misalignment on my first copy (slight overlap of the spine image onto the cover) so will probably stick the first copy on eBay when the new one arrives but if you're still looking & aren't bothered about the spine image too much then I'm open to selling direct instead. There seems to be a few copies of Volume 9 on eBay with the same printing issue as my copy (but don't seem to mention it) so I guess my replacement copy may have the same issue anyway (but hopefully not).
