Presumably the Lulu.com deluxe printing of Django Zoon: The Straightener.
I LOLed quite a bit.

Good work on the shelving. Now the nightmare begins! Should you file by author, genre, subject, size, series, etc... Best of British.

Or a fiendishly complicated system known only to yourself?
if I went 'round saying I was an Emperor just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away!

It should be size (decending) then title (ascending) then colour then date published then foreign language versions (order of languages yet to be decided!)

Not between The Cursed Earth Vol 2 and The Final Solution then?

As can be clearly seen in my own image, it sits between Case Files 13 & 14. If you're really determined, you could cut CF14 in two at the start of "Tale of the Dead Man" and file the halves on each side.

Somewhere along the way you've lost sight of the importance of spinal continuity.  It's all about the reading for you now, isn't it?  :'(

If any of you that have posted on here in a mocking tone about the horror that is Rebellions spines have an item from Apple, with its aesthetically pleasing designs, well you can just jolly well drokk off!

I have genuinely never liked the clean aesthetic of Apple products. I like jaggy, cluttered or garishly coloured things.

I even thought the early Sony mp3 walkman thing (but not the horrible fat one that came after) looked cooler than the iPod.

Of course, I actually meant between D.R. & Quinch and Defoe.

I apologize for the error.

Ampney Crucis Investigates: Vile Bodies has a white spine and a white back cover with a large illustration of Ampney in contrast to the black minimalist design on other 2000AD softcover trades. If anyone has a problem with that.  :)

Oh Rebellion. I love it when you troll us.

Does it at least follow the standard design, if not the color scheme? Or is it more like the Mega City Undercover TP?
