Sorry for the double post, but I have to ask.

How many here are missing their Slaine Volume Six/Issue 54?  I have despatched another email to Hachette but don't hold out much hope in any contact.

This has been eight weeks and it is marked as out of stock.  Most unsatisfactory, and especially so if it happens later on a book I really urgently want.  While I'm not Slaines biggest fan I don't like the idea of a missing part in the collection.

I'd like to know who else has this problem.

The original Trade paperback release that had that self same cover was all in one.  The only other Savage related books were Taking Liberties and The Guv'nor which was the later Bill Savage stories and even then Rebellion hasn't caught up to the Savage story in their releases.

So another Slaine book yesterday, which for now I refuse to read. The reason being that I'm still missing the previous one. Looks like I'll have to contact the clowns at Hachette again. I want to read them in order, well obviously bar Horned God since that was the first issue.

I remember getting the 12 volume set from the Don Lawrence collection which is going for silly money nowadays.

Example here

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TRIGAN-EMPIRE-Vol-1-H-C-Don-Lawrence-Look-Learn-Limited-Edition/264507399234?hash=item3d95de9c42:g:iBsAAOSwePtdGQmi

What I'd like to know, is that if they're doing all of Don Lawrence's artwork, are they going to do the others.

We also had artwork by Ron Embleton (who I believe did some Dan Dare), Oliver Frey, Gerry Wood and Phillip Corke.  That's still a substantial portion and I'd be interested in them.  I understand why the DON LAWRENCE collection wouldn't do them for obvious reasons. :)

I'm sorry, are you saying that you do think it too many?

Yes, I've made no secret of the fact that I'm not a great fan of Slaine, and now that we're still going to get so many, and so often is a bit of a bummer.  If there was a way of doing a pick and choose order I'd do so, but that's not possible I'm afraid.

Anyway, read my Flesh book.  Cheesey nonsense, but in the nicest possible way.  Claw Carver really is an utter swine isn't he, talk about two dimensional evil in the finest possible tradition.

Can't say I'm thrilled with the frequency of Slaine now, how many more books is that we're due?

Pity, I see War Machine is in the sale but digital only. Call me old fashioned but I prefer my graphic novels in physical form.

Picked up the Flesh book in the sale though.

While I thoroughly enjoyed the latest Alpha book, I just cannot take to Simon Harrison's art style, its far too murky for my liking.

Seems we're also missing a lot of stuff like Flesh, Leviathan, any of the Future sports.  I'm not bothered in the sports as I have the complete phone book of Harlem Heroes and Inferno, but I'm surprised on Flesh or Leviathan to be honest.

Still no sign of my missing Slaine.

Still a no show for my missing Slaine.  I know I'm not a Slaine fan but I don't want a gap in the collection.

Are Hachette braindead?

I got a reply about my missing Slaine.  They say they don't supply local newsagents, but they supply distributors which supply newsagents, so in effect, they do.

What the hell are these muppets up to.

I know for the most part that the Rogue books are reprints of the smaller Rebellion paperbacks, but I'm sure there was a story in the 2000ad one that wasn't in To the Ends of Nu Earth trade
