Might it just be a collection of various text stories or articles from annuals and specials?

Now that might not be such a bad idea, you know.  Some of the stuff that has been printed over the years does have some interesting little gems.  I wouldn't object to an edition reprinting some of the intro's from Titan's Dredd reprints.  IIRC the various Apocalypse War volumes have always had slightly different versions that add a little more insight each time.  Better than having seven different versions on our shelves.  (shuffles away guiltily)   ::)

The floppy for Meg 395 is apparently going to be a "Nemesis the Warlock monograph", though it isn't clear from the solicitation whether it will be 64 pages of just that or whether it will be backed up with something else - https://www.bleedingcool.com/2018/01/13/rebellion-april-2018-solicits/

I'm guessing there are no buyers of the Ultimate collection here...? The text piece in the back of the Nemesis books open 'taken from Rebellion's forthcoming Nemesis the Warlock: A monograph'.

Unfortunately not - I've got the original progs, the Eagle reprint, selected 'Best of 2000AD monthly' reprints, Titan reprints, the black and silver Titan reprint and couldn't really justify getting it all again, just for the few pages of support material - it was tempting though.  I had noticed the mention of the monograph on the Bleeding Cool page though - really looking forward to it - I think of Nemesis Book III as being the story that got me properly in to 2000AD (even though it didn't start until a month or two until I started buying the progs).

Not the kind of casual fan this forum normally attracts - buck up boyo!

I like the sound of this Nemesis 'monograph', not a bad idea for the floppy.

I was very happy with the Nemesis thing this month. More of this kind of thing, please, Tharg, instead of strips I've read already.

Really surprised to see a story like Block Judge turn up in a floppy. After all it is a top quality Wagner & Ezquerra Dredd and there has been no track record of the real A list stuff in the floppy.

Yeah, it's one hell of a treat this month.
I'm moving house at the moment, and as such have been packing loads of progs/megs/floppies - and by Grud, the sheer amount of *absolutely free* floppies is astounding! So many that I set aside for later and then forgot about, catching up is gonna be fun  :thumbsup:
