Nice work, guys! It's great to see some more promotion for the books on-site, and the hi-res pics of the covers look gorgeous.

I'm looking forward to picking up all of these books this month, but the new image for the Dante collection has bumped it my must-have list! Still, Red Tide should be here soon so that should keep me going for a while ;-)

Looking forward to the next round-up of releases for April, and I hope this, the other announcements and the ads in the prog mean an upswing in promoting the books!

...oh, and just so no-one thinks I've given up on my epic grump, the Slaine cover is still poo.

...but the Dante one is gorgeous. And so is the Shakara one. And the Death one... AARGH!

Yup, looking pretty damn good. I'm probably going to end up buying nearly all of these. The Devlin Waugh and Shakara volumes look particularly great. Love that Dante cover too, by the way - almost worth buying just for that alone.

I am *so happy* they went with Simon's new cover for this after all!  Sticking us with two different preview images was very mean, Tharg!  The cover is lovely; I'm looking forward to seeing it next week!

I think I shall be purchasing that there Slaine book (despite the cover) as it has some brilliant brilliant stuff inside.

Shakara won't be on my list however - I always found it a bit too much like THE FAST SHOW - same thing repeated week in week out?
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

I agree. I'm not sure it's a good move to reprint Shakara in a GN, as it would show how samey every part is. Oh well.

The rest of it looks great, though.

I'm especially keen on that Slaine book. It looks like it contains all the Slaine I ever enjoyed!

It's a shame they didn't just recolour an older Slaine cover. However, the improvement to the Dante cover is immense, and the extra saturation on the Devlin cover has made a world of difference.

An expensive month for me: the only one of these I don't want is the Shakara book.
