I agree with the above, it deserved to be in it if nothing more as part of Apocalypse War.

Well I read Stickleback, and can I say that I'm not overly impressed.  It wasn't bad, just not my thing.  Perhaps one for a reread some time and I might change my mind.

Any chance of the collection getting Leviathan?

Does anyone know for sure just what Rogue Trooper stuff we are getting.  I have the Rebellion volumes, as in Future of War, Fort Neuro, Eye of the Traitor, To the Ends of Nu-Earth, Re-Gene and Realpolitik as well as the Extreme Edition with Cinnabar.

I know someone who doesn't have the Realpolitik book or Cinnabar, if they are going to be printed in the Mega Collection I'll happily give them my trades.  I must admit, much as I like the original Rogue I did like the darker stories in Realpolitik, ditto with the 86ers.

I still wish there were less Slaine, but that's just my personal opinion and I think I'm in the minority here.  I wish there was the potential for more Savage than has been printed in the Rebellion trades already, I have the Invasion book and the two subsequent ones.  By the description given in the Wiki entry there's still quite a bit to go.

Also, I am surprised that Flesh isn't on the schedule.  Granted, I read books 1 and 2 a while back and it hasn't dated terribly well.  Also surprised that there isn't a Harlem Heroes reprint.  Again I'm not bothered personally as I picked up the phonebook sized edition to get Inferno as I had the extreme edition with the complete Heroes.

VC's is another one I'm surprised isn't getting printed, but I guess Rogue Trooper and Bad Company fill the future war niche.  I have all of VC's and thanks to a kind poster here I got the two floppies to wrap up the story.

Can someone perhaps answer a question?  I have the Rogue Trooper book Realpolitik, and the Extreme Edition with Cinnabar.  The Realpolitik book seemed to have stories that were a 'darker' style than the original.  Was this the sum total of that run of Rogue, or was there more of that type.  I know of the 'Galactic Hitman' era which isn't what I'm talking about.

Is there any idea of what the upcoming books are because to be honest if it's going to be mostly Slaine I'm seriously considering cancelling.  There is plenty more in 2000AD that could have been done without such a concentration of one character.

I think only one book of each, and that won't be enough to collect all of Savage. Most likely we'll just get the three Charlie Adlard series...

So, basically hang onto my copy of Savage:Taking Liberties and The Guvnor.  Oh, and of course Invasion.  Thanks to the generosity of someone here I have Disaster 1990.  It's just I feel that the printed books have been left on a cliff hanger.  Rebellion seem to have a bad habit of this.

Read Strontium Dog all in one sitting, and thoroughly enjoyed it.  Durham Red is definitely an interesting character as well.  It's funny, I've moaned about the amount of Slaine books, but if there was that amount in SD, I don't think I would be too bothered.

Looking forward to another Strontium Dog.  I'd still like to know just how far Rogue Trooper is going to be taken and whether there will be a compilation of Jaegir and The 86ers.  I have the latter but not the former book.

I'd also like to know just how much Invasion/Savage were getting.  Will there be any more than was in the Invasion and two Savage books already done?  I know the Invasion book was all the original Invasion, but I've seen recaps of Savage that hint at far more than has been printed.

I finished reading Nemesis.  I had had the three phone books but sold them a wee while back but it had been a while since reading them.  I sold them since I knew that the collection would cover the same material.  I really must admit that the last few stories were stretching things a bit and it looked as if they wanted a sequel where Purity would end up as Torquemada-Lite, being forced to make compromises.

Sorry though, the photo story was a product of its time but really was cringeworthy.

I own the origional art for the first page of this story, and have seen most of the other pages of art. The art itself has some amazing, vibrant colours as well as superb detailing, all of which where lost during reproduction.

This must be so depressing as an artist - you spend hours toiling away creating an amazing thing then when the published article comes back its a muddy blur and those hours were a complete waste of time and effort.  I guess there's an art to knowing what will/won't work with the reproduction process but still.

Saying that, I can understand that happening.  How many here are familiar with the strip "The Trigan Empire" that became known in Look and Learn?  My first encounter with this was at the tender age of ten years old when I was stuck in a childrens hospital and the Hamlyn book was there.  The artwork looked nice.  My parents swapped a pile of good condition books that I no longer wanted for this slightly battered one at the consent of the staff.

I later had the Hawk book "Tales of the Trigan Empire", and this was meant to be a higher priced book and of deluxe quality (remember Hawk reprinted some of the Dan Dare material).  The quality of the artwork was worse, just...different.  Colours were sometimes different.

In later years I bought the super deluxe collection from the Don Lawrence Collection and again you could see a difference in artwork.  Apparently the Don Lawrence collection had access to the original art, and weren't working off of reprints of reprints etc.

Really not a fan of the muddy artwork style in Hammer of the Warlocks, but that's maybe just me.

Will Realpolitik from Rogue Trooper be getting a reprint?  I've got the original 6 Rebellion books covering the original hunt for the traitor, then the books Re-Gene and Realpolitik.  Someone I know has the first 5 books but not Realpolitik.  If it's going to be reprinted in hardback form, I don't mind giving them it, same with The 86ers.

I haven't even burst the seal on my Slaine Volume IV yet, I just can't muster up the excitement for it as I've mentioned many times that Slaine ain't my cup of tea.  Plus there's the fact that I'm reading two crime novels and a naval fiction novel and just finished watching two seasons of Dark Matter on DVD all on much the same timeline.  I guess I want to finish some stuff before starting something new.

Meanwhile I have still been ignored regarding War on the Streets in Dredd after they said there was no fault.

Regarding Robo Hunter Volume 3, this was in my opinion about the best of them, the others were very much a product of their time and I'm glad they're not printing the relaunch.  However, there's still a ton of Slaine to go through.

Which pages do you have a problem with? Let me know and I'll upload some shots from my copy, so you can at least compare and see if it's a problem with your copy, the repro, or the entire run.

It seems that pretty much all of Block War is fine.

The main problems are....

Th Body Sharks page 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11

Perp Runners page 3, 6, 9, 10

Umpty Baggers page 4, 5

Psychos Page 9, 10, 11, 12

Numbers Racket 4

Is there any way to get to someone with half a brain. I get a message saying to phone the company and ask to speak to the client relations or manufacturing team and some very rude woman says that they don't take calls. She then outright lies and says there is no problems with issue 90. I had sent an email with images and got the exact same generic email back.

Those goddamn morons.....

I got a delivery today.  Despite repeatedly emphasising the difference between issue and volume number I got issue 88/volume 84 Crazy Town sent through.

Are they totally brain dead there.
