I don’t actually own Journey to Hell, but I have read it in the SD Files I borrowed from the library.

To me it’s one of the weakest Strontium Dog stories, so no colour spreads means no purchase for me I’m afraid.

Yeah, it's not a great one. Rambles on and on with no real sense of coherent plot, and Ezquerra's art mostly looks quite rushed.

What's in it. The only phone book I have is the one with Portrait of a Mutant in it.

Galaxy Killers through to Doc Quince Case, plus the customary essay and a few full-page colour covers.

Well, here's what everyone is going to want to know about Strontium Dog vol 1 - there are no colour centre spreads. Otherwise, though, it's the usual bang-up excellent repro job. Some of the strips look loads better than in my phonebooks.

Funnily enough I saw a topic ripping into the forum over on Facebook the other day. It was quick to accuse it of being full of bullying, a lone voice (not sure who as they had their real name - sorry if you read this) stood up to defend the forum and as you can predict on Facebook the knives where out quick enough. It was all a bit unpleasent.

Ooh, that makes me so mad! And it's always folk that haven't been here for five or six years now - how would they know what the forum is like?!

Cheers guys. The ro-busters hardback is on sale or do I search for a copy of the phone book version. Decisions decisions.

It's lovely to have everything under one cover, but the hardbacks are just gooooorgeous...

Spurrier and Elson's 'The Scrap' fits the bill pretty well, too.

It's been established the collection will be the main strips - and lots of books for each. So unlikely any VCs.

VCs is more of a 'main strip' than the likes of Ampney Crucis and Sooner or Later...!

If you haven't already read them, I think you'd really dig the Dreddworld spin-offs Simping Detective, Lenny Zero and Low Life - all extremely 'Noir', for the most part... The likes of Marauder and Bato Loco also have a great line in 'seedy underbelly' type stuff.

That's quite possibly the cover of year for me.

Very trade-worthy!

I only buy the prog when Slaine is in it.

You are Thyrllseeker and I claim my five pounds.

agree pretty much 100% with what Greg says. 

The ending to BC II was a top 10 2000AD moment for me.

And what should have been a perfect end to the series full-stop.

...look out for suspicious white spaces in otherwise detailed panels, and a classic example where Nemesis plunges his sword up to the hilt in a guy's chest, but they've removed the blade coming out of his back, so it looks like one of those collapsible prop-swords.

That was Talbot, by that point - the bit where Nemesis kills Magna at their wedding.

I dusted off Sonic The Comic.So many memories.  :)

I reread all mine about 5 years ago. Was great! Odd to see some now-famous names in there (Mark Millar) and some legends in their own time like Brendan (drawing Decap Attack).

Decap Attack was only ever McMahon and Nigel Kitching. Very much prog-like all round though, innit? Suppose that's only natural when it was made by so many prog alumni...

It does seem strange to cluster so much Nemesis in the first few months when there are 13 vols of Slaine to get through, you'd think they'd want to space those more evenly over the subscription.

Not to mention 10 vols of Stronty Dog - come the end of February we'll only have had two books of that...
