I thought it was a 2016 release date, and remember thinking it was a very long way off - maybe November this year?

I have no idea what resources are available for putting together volume 2 or how far down the line robo-keef is, but this listing on ebay might be useful:

Depending on how big the book is the first few strips could be scanned from their reprints in the prog & meg. Originals of all the other episodes exist in private collections. One episode is missing entirely as to wasn't printed (ep 3530 - 3536 was printed in its place and then again in the correct order - guess there was a misreading of the last digit).

Be interesting to see how the colour episodes reproduce. A lot of the colour on them as originally printed is very poor - mis-aligned or mis-coloured. You'd never think Dread's uniform had so much yellow on it!

Lots of people will have read them.  Once.

glassstanley - Can you provide any more details about the 'missing episode'? Does it exist anywhere? I do so hate loose ends!
Thanks.

Now up for pre-order at Amazon UK:

The Daily Dredds Vol. 2 - Hardcover, 6th October 2016, 96 pages.

This second volume of the Daily Star Dredds features the weekly strips published in the popular national tabloid that ran between July 1986 to the end of 1988, featuring action-packed stories from John Wagner and Alan Grant and sumptuous  art from Ian Gibson, Mike Collins and the legendary Ron Smith.

It's unlikely to be 96 pages when volume 1 was 320 pages.

I agree.  That's what the Amazon listing has at the moment, but there have been a number of dubious elements to recent listings supplied by Tharg's PR people.

Not that Amazon aren't prone to list softbacks as hardbacks themselves.

Yes it is already been confirmed by a droid on another thread that the page count is erroneous.

Or "...has been confirmed..." rather.
