Lush Cam Kennedy (i assume) cover to the Invasion! Issue (60)



Cool cover. Barney has the total page count for the original run at 236, if the title pages are reduced a la Future Shocks it could all fit in to one volume. Be great to have a complete hardback collection of an early Thrill.

The erroneously numbered Slaine volume seven contains:

The Triple Death
The Swan Children
Macha
Beyond
The Secret Commonwealth

I'm still hoping for the Diceman stories but not sure that's going to happen.

The latest issue was a no-show this morning at my local Thrill-merchant, who showed me the delivery note which said something like, "insufficient stock". Hmm. It is available on the Hachette site so hopefully will turn up in the next few days.

Volgan War 1 still s no-show at the Thrill-merchant so have ordered from FP. Hopefully just a blip...

As a dodger, most definitely.

What else has Smiley known about/influenced/left to run its course? Brilliant game-changing stuff from Williams, paying tribute to and developing all of Wagner and Grant's work.

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.

Really enjoyed the Diceman episode, it brought back a lot of memories.

The Slaine stories were collected in a Titan edition, which is available on Ebay and Amazon.

I'm hoping the stories will be reprinted in the 2000AD Ultimate Collection, but failing that a volume from Rebellion would be fantatstic.

A bit late to the party, but here's my two-groats' worth:
 
Epic: Day of Chaos
Short: The Stupid Gun
Villain: PJ Maybe
Moment: Revelation of the Sov involvement in Pirates of the Black Atlantic
Honorable Mention: Howler

I can't make any of the events, but maybe we could could put a load of stuff on here on the day? Say first Dredd, favourite long and short stories, classic moments?

Nor here. Is it Dante this week?

It is Dante, who's a no-show at my Thrill-merchant today so have ordered from Forbidden Planet.

Zaucer Of Zilk, presumably. Ewing & McCarthy collaborated on a Dr Who parody Dredd strip, Dr What?

Doctor What was in the Dredd collection volume 87, a volume of Al Ewing stories, and we've been promised no duplication between the two collections. Page count suggests Zaucer of Zilk would fit, along with Hewligan, Sooner or Later and Swifty's Return, along with something else - Hap Hazzard maybe, that could be a good fit here.

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
Complaint

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.
