I got the Adventures of Herge for my xmas and it's a different size from my Tintin books, why in the name of all that's Snowy would they do 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?

I've never read that so I can't compare it. Publisher credits are on the inside front cover, along with a large colour illustration of Ampney's car stretching onto the title page, then it's onto standard design. Just noticed there is no spine number either, possibly because the spine is quite narrow compared to other 2000AD collections. If anyone cares :)

I had known for a while that I needed to reclaim the Rebellion shelf and a half for actual books, so I went out and got myself one of those Argos bastards. Here's the new look.
Top half.

Man, I never realized how fat the Anderson Psi-Files collection is. Damn that's a fat trade.

Also, those Rogue Trooper Tales of Nu-Earth trades have sexy matching spines. So sweet.

Is that Semtex that you've got strapped to the underside of your shelf there Cosh?

Yeah. It's a bit French but well worth a read if you've any interest in Dick. A bit of an eye opener in terms of just how mad a bastard he was.

That set of Case Files looks great. And I mean that.

What's that Strontium Dog volume 5 book on The Cosh's shelf? Is it The Final Solution? Also, is the 4th Stronty collection any good?

Cheers. I enjoy this thread because, apart from voyeuristically peering into people's living rooms, you can see the fatness of the trades to judge value for money on your next buy.

Speaking of Argos shelving I picked up a new book case the other day, the smaller version of the one The Cosh bought (which I'm pretty sure is from the Maine range, not the Bastard range  :lol: ).  Pretty good for £14, although because of the hole spacing it's not possible to get three shelves of full sized graphic novels in.  Good thing I'm planning on getting a load of Star Wars and Indiana Jones omnibuses this year.
