I think this is what the meg doctor ordered

I think this is the general opinion, Rebellion people:

The return of Daily Star Dredds and the Aliens comic reprinted in the Meg.

Sounds cool to me.

I think that reprint mix could increase sales too.

Another vote for the Daily Star dredds...

Not so sure about Aliens - as a licenced comic it might be a little more expensive to reprint.  I like the idea of the strip being British creators, as I've never really dug any American comics.  

I'd love to see Mutomaniac, but I'm not sure whether it was ever finished. Fantastic stuff though.  Marshall Laws out of the question, as Cool Beans have got that.  

The Bogie Man would be my first choice as its so good and might encourage John Wagner and Alan Grant to write the next story!

If people thought Flesh and Ro-Busters was dated, they'd have a fit with Action.  Despite its fearsome reputation as ground breaking the actual content is a little patchy.  2000Ad really was were the ideas hatched in Action really bore fruit (hows that for a mixed metaphor!)

I'd like to see reprints of the early Dredd sagas - The Cursed Earth and The Apocalypse Wars.

I think Charlie's War is a no no. There was a letter in the meg a while back asking for it and kiwi bishop lamb chops said they can't print it. I can't remember why off hand.

Someone go find out why! Thanks.

Don't know.  Maybe 'cause it's already released as a Titan book, or something?

I agree, it should be strips by British creators.

What about Bloodquest by Rennie & MacNeil?

It was, wasn't it? Ennis and Dillon were old Brit legends, wasnt that the point of reprinting Preacher?  Or no?

How about getting the rights to reprint stuff from Crisis? Many people will not have read it and there were some excellent strips, such as Third World War.
Support FUTUREQUAKE - it makes sense

No, Preacher was a vertigo title.
Owned by American company, DC which is owned by Time Warner.
