I just buy mine from the newsagents!
That was my plan, only we don't have any local newsagents, our McColls is run by psychopaths, and WHSmith was cagey over whether it would be able to order anything in with any regularity.

Psychopathic newsagents? That has to be a future shock/terror tale waiting to happen, if it hasn't already. I can't praise my local Thrill-merchant enough for sorting out my order for the Dredd collection and subsequently the Tooth series. Other than a couple of misses on Dredd, every issue has arrived present and correct.

...Kingdom, possibly some Meg series that are ongoing (Lawless, say), classic thrills like VCs, gap plugs (I wouldn't want all of Fr1day, but War Machine and a best-of would be great; see also: Strontium Dogs), Armoured Gideon (yes, I know), Brass Sun, Flesh, Indigo Prime, Necronauts, Zaucer of Zilk, Zenith, Fiends of the Eastern Front, Age of the Wolf, Firekind...

...Brink, Ten Seconders, Absalom, the last three Strontium Dog series, Damnation Station, Storming Heaven/From Grace, Defoe, Leviathan, Red Seas, Atavar, Jaegir, more Savage, Grey Area... Another 20 books there, easy.

Bix Barton, Revere, Cradlegrave, The Dead, Mazeworld, Ro-Busters, and another vote from me for Armoured Gideon.

I got back into Tooth after almost 20 years away when the Dredd collection launched. I've bought the occasional prog since, but have been mostly focusing on collections of stories that haven't or won't be appearing in the Dredd or Ultimate series.

Thanks for the Slaine breakdown. I was wondering about the first two Books of Invasion I have, it looks possible there'll be material in those which will be omitted from the UC. We will see.

Is there enough space in 13 volumes to collect all of Slaine to date, including The Brutania Chronicles?

The Hachette site is showing the cover of Bad Company volume 1, it's the Brendan McCarthy pin-up of Kano which I think first appeared during the Bewilderness run.

I can now confirm having gotten my hands on Slaine 3 that it and Kingdom 2 have had their endpapers flipped, so it’s more likely a printer error rather than the Graphic Designer.

see my tweet here

Given the comments on Hachette's customer service on here, I think I'm going to suck this one up. I know that IndigoPrime has successfully arranged replacements for a number of the Dredd collection, but chances of a positive outcome here are minimal I fear.

My copy of Kingdom vol 2 has Slaine endpapers - anyone else?

Venom. Left after about an hour as it's a complete mess. Can't even say it was a typically eccentric performance from Tom Hardy, as only one scene (the one in the restaurant) made me chuckle a bit. Maybe the wider Marvel universe can do something with the alien parasite if they get the rights to it, but on the basis of this and the equally bad third Tobey Maguire Spiderman, it needs to be left out in space for a long time to come. Utter pants.

I thought it was a great opener, Jodie was brilliant with the right level of eccentricity, humour and confusion for a new Doctor, plus there was plenty of pathos and Chris Chibnall clearly isn't afraid of not shying away from death. Looking forward to the rest of the series very much on the basis of this episode.

Apologies if this has been asked higher up the thread, but will the Strontium Dog issues be complete (apart from the Starlord stories)?

I ask because I don't see the Gronk Affair from Progs 224 to 227 listed.

I think the collection will include all SD stories from Tooth, along with complete runs of Slaine, Nemesis, ABC Warriors and Nikolai Dante.

The Gronk Affair was in SD volume 2, volume 5 of the collection.

One of my favourite issues of the Mega Collection was volume 70, Mad City. This is a great introduction to Mega City One, the judges and the citizens, and includes what is regularly held up to be one of the best one-off stories of the entire Dredd canon, Bury My Knee At Wounded Heart. It's out of stock on the Hachette site but you might be able to track it down on ebay. Happy reading!

A real shock. Watching the interview with him and John from the 40th anniversary convention, such a humble man belying his immense talent. Really sad to think his body of work is now complete, but what a body of work, to be enjoyed again and again. RIP Carlos.

A Simple Favour. Entertaining thriller that mixes humour in with the twists and turns of the plot and gets the balance about right. Good fun.
