The later Savage books took a bit to get used to due to the contrast in style. The Volgans in Invasion were moustache twirling villains and Savage was way over the top, this isn't a criticism, just reflecting the style of the time. Taking Liberties and Guv'nor were a lot darker, like a certain scene that Savage does. I don't want to give spoilers for those who haven't read it.

Ah, thanks for that, I doubt that will be in the collection then, not that I'm complaining, but I remember the first few annuals were a bit variable in quality.

I've mentioned before that there was three Bill Savage books released by Rebellion, the original Invasion, Savage:Taking Liberties, and The Guv'nor.  However, the description in Wikipedia makes it plain that there is still stuff that has not been released in graphic novel form.  Does anyone know if its a sizeable amount.  Wiki makes it sound so, but that could depend on the person writing the entry.

I still think it's strange that in the Dredd collection we never had a Captain Skank story especially considering how much of the Dredd lore was taken up by the Apocalypse War and both its lead up (like Luna City) and it's ramifications like Orlok and Chaos Day.

Shako is one I have the trade in, and it is a fairly slim book.  It includes the story and an annual story which was basically an 'origins' story.  Still, it wasn't as thick as say the Jaegir book.  It is too thin to stand on its own and I can't see that theres something with a similiar theme to pair it with.  What about Leviathan?  Flesh complete is a sizeable book, not quite as thick as the Harlem Heroes/Inferno phonebook edition, but about the thickness of Nemesis phonebook 2.

The VC's would be nice in hardback, though there's quite a contrast in style between the original story and the 'Back in Action' era, but still worthwhile.

I remember the 1980 2000ad annual had a story about a WWII platoon and a captured german prisoner with a time machine, but I can't remember what it was called and I wouldn't be surprised if it was a holdover from the Starlord days.

I'd really like to know what more stuff will be in an extension as to be frank I've had more satisfaction from the Dredd collection, there have been a fair few too many that I've been meh about, namely the amount of Slaine but others as well.  I'm also surprised there hasn't been more of the really older collection like Flesh, Shako, Harlem Heroes, The VC's, Ro-Busters and others.  Granted, all of those I've listed I already own in other trades, but I'm talking about that era.  For a 'best of', there's a fair amount of newer stories, at least newer by my perspective.

Well I picked up Invasion today, haven't burst the seal so I don't know if its the exact same as the Rebellion Invasion book, I imagine so.  I've got two Slaine books, this, and the Hewligans Haircut book to read.

I'd like to see a few more 'classic era' as in earlier stories in an extension as well, though to be honest I can't think of any must haves.  VC's would be nice though I have them all, a hardcover would be nice.  Leviathan might be a nice one, and surely if there was to be any more Dredd a Captain Skank volume should be in there.

Perhaps, but 64 pages is equivalent to a standard Commando comic, though I imagine that the book itself will be larger, I'd just prefer to spend that equivalent on something else.

Interesting but a little pricy for what it is, 64 pages isn't much at all.

I'd like to see some of the post classic Rogue Trooper from Realpolitik on.

Isn't that already scheduled for th

It might be, bear in mind I gave up reading 2000ad before the whole 'Galactic Hitman' storyline, and never knew of Realpolitik till years later, and was unaware of just how much there was from Hitman onwards, including Jaegir, Friday and the 86ers.

More Savage than has been covered in the three Rebellion trades.

Leviathan.

Is there still a Rebellion sale?

The Don Lawrence Collection books were rather thin, but they were Broadsheet size books almost, about the same size as the Hawk Publishing Dan Dare books.

I really hope more than the Don Lawrence books get done if these are succesful as I want to see the other stories.  Up till now, bar buying the magazines, the Don Lawrence collection books are the only ones that were unedited.  The original Hamlyn book and even the Hawk Publishing book years back had large parts cut from the stories.

My fave is the cover with Trigo, Peric and Janno. Drool.

Which one, there are two covers with Trigo, Peric and Janno?


13
Better than most of the covers on my limited editions, but I'd still like to know if the post Don Lawrence material will be done

Finally the missing Slaine came in, ten weeks late, not bad Hachette.

Can we nominate them for the most crap customer service.

Tried phoning Hachette direct, after an hour on hold I gave up, they don't reply to emails. What a bunch of useless incompetents.
