Do we have a contents list for Strontium dog vol. 6?

Anyone seen it? How's the reproduction?

The Royal Affair
The Rammy
Stone Killers
Incident on Zeta
The No-Go Job
The Beast of Milton Keynes

I wonder if A Sorry Case has been held back for the next issue to accompany Colin's work on TFS. I'm also guessing that remaining annual and special stories will be in there too to make up the page count.

I've only read The Royal Affair and the start of The Rammy so far, but up to now the repro looks OK to me. The annual stories are in black and white.

Mine's a millimeter or two over, but I can live with that.

As well as the title story, the Dark Justice volume contains all the stories included in the first Fall of Deadworld volume. Unfortunately it doesn't include the full-page Dave Kendall nightmare-inspired portraits of the four DJs, although these are shown in the article at the back. Stunning art throughout.

At least two volumes of John Smith stuff is required. Indigo Prime, Revere, Leatherjack....plus somebody on here keeps banging on about Firekind, they may have a point. And the Robo-Hunter one-off with Chris Weston, which I don't think has been reprinted elsewhere.

Art aside, I found the latest Slaine volume a drag, with the exception of the story in verse, which was fun. I know we have Uncle Pat to thank for us all talking about this stuff on here after so many years, but I found his scripts po-faced and confusing, and the whole thing just seemed a rehash of The Horned God. Ho-hum.

Picked this up for a quid in Derby Market yesterday. Contents are Bad City Blue, Silo and Tribal Memories.

BCB I don't think I'd read since the original progs, and it's more or less an extended Future-Shock, with some fantastic art from Robin Smith.

Silo I didn't have too many memories of, and I'm not sure I'd seen The Shining or Die Hard when it was published. It's derivative of both, so, other than Dave D'Antiquis's atmospheric art, left me cold.

Tribal Memories is a thoughtful meditation on the nature of identity. I partly think there should have been more episodes or series, and partly think it was it was enough within the episodes published.

Overall, a bargain.

Started Too Old to Die Young, as I'm a fan of Nicolas Winding Refn's films. I suspect this will be as divisive, as an hour into the first episode, there have been several scenes of not much happening, with flickering neon in the background and a synth soundtrack. I understand fully those who will view this as pretentious claptrap, however I'm already mesmerised and plan to watch the whole thing.

Toy Story 4. Mostly enjoyed, possibly 10-20 minutes too long, but infused with much humour, (mild) horror and pathos to make it worth a watch. Think the toy box needs to be closed now though.

A great special, and a fantastic tribute to King Carlos.

Dave Kendall's art never fails to creep me out, in the best possible way - the man is a horror master.

I think that whoever draws the continuation of Spector, it will be an ongoing recognition of the great man's legacy. Some great dialogue in there too.

Not read mine yet, but I have a question for anyone buying this off the shelf.
Anyone else find this stocked very sparsely today? My town's WHS, which routine gets 10+ copies of the prog and meg, and usually stocks around the same number of the specials, only received 2 copies today. I bought them both- one for me, one for the boy, leaving none on the shelf on day of release before 1030am.
The other WHS, at the railway station, had none, despite also having stocked last year's and regularly having both prog and meg on its shelves.
Anyone else notice similar?

I bought mine from a WHS I don't usually go to, just happened to be in the vicinity. They had three copies, what looked like similar number of Megs, and no Progs yesterday morning at around 9.30.

As you might imagine, there's some classic stuff in the Alan Moore future-shocks volume. FSs from between progs 200-350, Time Twisters, a smattering of one-offs, the complete misadventures of yours truly, and a couple of Ro-Jaws Robo-Tales. Looking forward to getting stuck in, and hope it's not too long before subscribers can too.
