Suggestions for the floppy
« on: 19 June, 2014, 12:30:28 pm »
Inspired by the comments in the recent Meg thread I thought I would open one up where folks can say what they would really like to see in future floppies that they bundle with the Meg. 

We all know the deal - anything outstanding will get released as a tpb so we are looking at the slightly less popular stories, which still leaves us with some great pickings and is an opportunity to see stories reprinted that never normally would.

To open, I would like to see:

Armoured Gideon
Brigand Doom
Firekind
Revere

Ah, well that probably rules out those three being included in the Meg floppies.  All my hopes/dreams are now on Brigand Doom!


Junker!

 ;) Come on Zen, what is it that you like so much about Junker?

A slight thread highjack, but I can't see where else to ask. I'm thinking of starting with the Meg once more but am inclining towards a digital subscription. I assume that means I'll miss out on the supplements, but I don't know for sure. Who can clear it up for me?

Supplements are included with the digital Megazines, Earthlet!

I believe at the end of my letter to Dreddlines that I wrote not too long ago (probably not about to be published, since a letter I wrote earlier than that is in Prog 1884) I suggested that the rest of Lobster Random  would be gladly appreciated, or that The Vort at least should for some of D'Israeli's finest art. And I believe I also suggested the missing stories of Caballistics Inc. would be nice, if only to prevent me from digging through piles of Progs to find it. So those I guess, but my point in general at the end of that letter was that there's a ton of great stuff that could do with being collected.

I say again:

Vector 13
Tales of Telguuth
FINN BOOK TWO!!!!
Helltrekkers (I know it was in the Meg fairly recently- but all in one volume? Yes please!)
If there are to be no more SiniDex trades, then how about SiniDex?
Armoured Gideon
Bonjo/ Dash Decent/ whatever else pads it out.
Do Rebellion have the rights to non-2000AD Starlord and Tornado strips from before the mergers? If so, all of them.

Nope—only stuff that continued into 2000 AD.
