Wow, Nem looks great.

Is the first Robo-Hunter volume Verdus and Day of the Droids? Volume must be on the hefty side if so.

They come to about 240 pages, so yeah, that'd be bang on the money.

Your confusion is all based on the assumption that, if Terra has 'become' Termight, then Torquemada's anti-science, anti-alien coup must also have already come to pass. But if Termight's currently under an earlier, more enlightened rule then there's no conflict re: Mars and its martians. There was a Soviet Russia before Stalin, after all.

The floppy for Meg 395 is apparently going to be a "Nemesis the Warlock monograph", though it isn't clear from the solicitation whether it will be 64 pages of just that or whether it will be backed up with something else - https://www.bleedingcool.com/2018/01/13/rebellion-april-2018-solicits/

I'm guessing there are no buyers of the Ultimate collection here...? The text piece in the back of the Nemesis books open 'taken from Rebellion's forthcoming Nemesis the Warlock: A monograph'.

Huh, looks like they've definately ditched the colour title pages for B&W material, then. Wonder why?

What's glaringly missing???

TBH that is part of the problem, there is nothing that you would point to and say, 'you MUST read this or you won't get Dredd'.  That said, there are some quality runs that could do with an outing.

There's still no Otto Sump; still no Kenny Who? And to be honest, I'd happily buy Mad City II, III, IV and V!

I just noticed Dean Ormston and Si Spencer on the Fallen Angels cover. Can't see anything related they've done, so are they putting some Harke & Burr in there to bulk it up? I wonder if it will be the stuff from the Meg Floppy, or maybe the Missionary Man crossover?

One of Rennie's Mean Machine tales had Harke and Burr exhibiting him in a Cursed Earth travelling carnival, so that idea makes a lot of sense!

So I'm guessing by that list on Wiki regarding Savage/Invasion where it says one book for each,  the entirety of Invasion will be in one book (maybe to pad it out the Savage Disaster story pre Volgan War?), and Savage will encompass the Guvnor and Taking Liberties.

The complete Invasion is about 256 pages - so no need for padding out...!

Going with Barney for Fallen Angels content, Angelic and Before they wuz Dead account for 66 pages, any ideas on the rest?

Angelic has appeared more than Barney (currently) says it has, so you can double its page count for a start. And after 'Before they Wuz dead' Spurrier and Roberts reunited for a solo Fink tale 'Pizen Impossible' for another 25 or so pages.

As for the rest... Marshall, Reynolds and Goddard almost certainly suggests Rennie's brief solo Mean Machine run from the Megazine. That's another 56 pages.

Wasn't there something called Hammer of Torquemada or some such that was planned and we saw a preview of but never materialised. I might be mis-remembering things there.

As I recall the Deadlock story doesn't really move anything on except for the relationship between the two characters (Deadlock and Nemesis that is) ... and that might be a couple of years or more off?

Still it will be fun seeing how all this plays out.

Hammer of Warlocks is a three-part story that's curious for spending two of its three episodes recapping the entire saga to date! This is because, according to Mills, he planned out an epic Horned God-style fully painted saga for which this was to be a prologue. It never materialised (supposedly because readers didn't take to Clint Langley's art) leaving it a curious little thing indeed.

At the end Torquemada is planning an epic jaunt across the cosmos in search of the fabled Hammer; because we never got said jaunt, he just pops up randomly at the start of Book X after 'many years away' having got the Hammer off-screen, as it were - and the Hammer makes little impact in the story that follows. A bizarre narrative dead-end, all told.

shame it was retconned so that Pa and Junior survived

Only until the retcon was retconned so that IT NEVER HAPPENED.

That's an unusual image of Pa Angel. Granted we account for different art styles and we had the image of him younger in the intro story to Finish but it's an odd one. Is it meant to be Paid when younger but before the events of Judge Child.

I think Angelic is a tale about the versions of the Angels from the Stallone film, as Junior is drawn to look like that character rather than the comic version.

Much as I like Black Mirror, I always get the impression that the tale could be told in half the time.

Callister was ok just a bit drawn out and, once the "twist of who the real baddie was, didn't seem to have anywhere to go other than the actual resolution. Did I miss something?

Yeah, absolutely agree. I did start checking my watch during that first episode. There was no need for it to be longer than the standard hour. Sort of preffered it on Channel 4 for that very reason.

Sorry, I meant to go back and spoiler tag that last party of my post, but I can't edit on this thread. Not much of a spoiler once you see the picture in the Christmas Prog, anyway.

Speaking of Spoilers, do we know when the story might start? does it have a prog number please? I don't have the Xmas prog yet.

Carlos has just put up a big picture of Wulf's son now on FB - it looks brill!

Si

There isn't a prog no. on the ad, so I don't know as yet. Thanks for the heads up concerning Carlos Ezquerra's picture! I'll have a look for that...

It's the teaser page from the Xmas prog.

And I may be wrong, but I don't think we've been to ground zero at East-Meg One before now.

Not in the main strip, but some of the spin-offs certainly have.
