...And that's totally forgetting more Dredd stuff!

Beyond that, it would seem sensible to have content that can be wrapped up within the extension.

I started working out something similar myself - I think this would do it (Stickleback was on there, but that was presuming the final book had run in the prog by that point and it seems unlikely). You could easily have more Sinister Dexter books too, of course, though the current Hachette run will leave it in a fairly tidy end-point.

1 – Absalom (Sick Leave – Terminal Diagnosis)
1 – Kingdom (As It Is In Heaven, Alpha & Omega)
1 - Strontium Dog (Stix Fix – The Son)
2 - ABC Warriors (Return to Earth, Return To Mars; Return to Ro-Busters, Fallout)
2 – Savage (The Guv’nor – Crims(4-6); Secret City – Grinders(7-9))
1 – Dark Judges (Dominion, Fall of Deadworld III, IV)

That still leaves so much cool stuff uncollected, though, that would fit neatly into one (or at most two) fairly-complete volumes - Defoe, Indigo Prime, Jaegir, Brink, Lobster Random, Luke Kirby...


This is pretty great – the missing piece that’ll slot in with the Hachette collection and ensure none of the S/D material is missed out in HC.

I know, so excited!  :D  Been hankering for this volume for years.

All we need now is that Hachette extension, with a final Stronty hardcover collecting Jing-Jong Job through to The Son

Clearly gearing up for the Dredd/Scooby Doo time travel crossover.

It's been done... TWICE!

You can also see what's happening this time, which is nice!

The massive picture of Hoagy should have been your first clue that Funt was not entirely serious...

ABC Warriors 5 collects Volumes 1 and 2 of the Volgan War, as we suspected it might. Such a lush-looking book - wish that Rebellion would collect things this way, and not package each volume as a measly 96-page book. (Incidentally, what we have here is the 'remastered' version that Clint did for the trades, not the original prog versions).

It's confirmed in the intro that volumes 37 and 38 will collect the entirety of the Books of Invasion; and the Warriors are mentioned as being 'on indefinite leave in the prog' - meaning, I suppose, that there's no new tale in the pipeline (presumably because Pat's busy with Spacewarp - and hopefully not that he's burnt bridges with Rebellion over royalties or somesuch).

Rogue volume 4 contains everything up to the end of the Jose Ortiz run. The intro says the reboot will be covered in the next volume but no story details. Presumably The War Machine, don't think The Hit and the Michael Fleisher stuff are considered up to much, so what else? Hoping for Cinnabar to get some John Smith in the collection at last. Enfleshings, Hollow Town and Shock Tactics would be great too.

Having talked in-depth about The HitCinnabar and The War Machine, the afterword confirms we'll get Cinnabar in book 5, along with 'more modern takes on classic Nu-Earth set Rogue Trooper.'

So to my mind that suggests most (all?) of Rennie's Realpolitik run, Alan Moore's annual stories and the odd few one-offs we've had by the likes of Ian Edginton and Gerry himself.

…so would the remaining vols for Slaine be: one more …Invasions, one book covering Wanderer & Scars, and finishing off with Brutania x2?

Yep, I think so. I tried to work out how it'd all fit into 13 books a while ago, just after the fifth book had come out, and got this:

Vol 1 - Warriors Dawn
Vol 2 - Time Killer
Vol 3 - Slaine the King
Vol 4 - Horned God
Vol 5 - Demon Killer, Lord Of Misrule

Vol 6 -  Treasures Of Britain (136)
Vol 7 - The Grail War (176)
Vol 8 - Lord Of The Beasts (256)
Vol 9 - Book Of Invasions 1 (112), Book Of Invasions 2 (112) = 224
Vol 10 - Book Of Invasions 3 (128), The Wanderer (128) = 256
Vol 11 - Book Of Scars (192)
Vol 12 - Brutania 1 (112), Brutania 2 (112) = 224
Vol 13 - Brutania 3 (101), Brutania 4 (96) = 197

Nearly three volumes later, this still seems broadly correct; except that the exisiting Book of Scars book is actually quite light on strip content, so we'll probably get a split that's more akin to:

Vol 1 - Warriors Dawn
Vol 2 - Time Killer
Vol 3 - Slaine the King
Vol 4 - Horned God
Vol 5 - Demon Killer, Lord Of Misrule
Vol 6 -  Treasures Of Britain
Vol 7 - The Grail War
Vol 8 - Lord Of The Beasts

Vol 9 - Book Of Invasions 1 (Moloch, Golamh, Scota)
Vol 10 - Book Of Invasions 2 (Tara, Odacon, Carnivale)
Vol 11 - The Wanderer, Book of Scars
Vol 12 - Brutania 1, Brutania 2
Vol 13 - Brutania 3, Brutania 4

Pretty much as you said!

Well, yes, but a new adaptation of the book is not quite the same thing.

...the return of Deadlock, who we must suppose stopped being a subsumed aspect of Nemesis when we weren't looking.

That's presumably still to due to happen in the future, but the Warriors have travelled back through the Time Tubes to an earlier era, when Deadlock is still kicking around as his own bad self.

I liked Ulysess Sweet too. Knockabout fun that offered something a bit different to anything else at the time.

I've ended up with two copies of the last Dante book (53) so anyone please feel free to message me if you're still having trouble finding it.

Jaegir was the highlight for me, I love it a great deal and it feels so good to still be getting a fix of the Rogue Trooper universe. It's a brilliant use of that world and I hope it's not going to be wrapping up anytime soon.

Yup, it's just the perfect solution to the problem of Rogue Trooper. It's a bit mystifying that previous creative teams thought the solution was to take Rogue (the least interesting character) away from Nu-Earth (the most interesting character)! This is how you do it - accept that Rogue's story is done, and find new stories to tell about new characters, in the same evocative world.
