Haven't always loved the cover choices in this collection, but that's a cracker.

And gives a good flavour of the contents, to boot! Hope it runs from 'Hell and High Water' right through to 'Dragon's Island,' which is a hell of an image to end on.

A whole book of John Burns is quite a feat as well!

That runs to 252 pages inc title pages... Slightly too much to fit in?

(The much maligned Doctor Who: Tales from the TARDIS comic, which should probably just be put out of its misery.)

I’m not surprised. I guess the Doctor Who comic had crap sales, but the manner they’ve got about it is pretty shoddy, to say the least. Weird gaps between issues (the comic is now five-yearly!), and fairly randomly reprinting the US stuff. When the comic first appeared (in A4 format), it was superb. What it’s turned into is deeply disappointing.

I've been very selective about what to buy from this series, but I am buying Dante. Just checked the wiki page and if all goes to schedule it's one year from today that we should have a complete hardback series of Nikolai Dante. Fantastic. Haven't read them since the original progs and I haven't dipped in to these collections yet, waiting until I've got the whole lot and can read it from start to finish. Can't wait!

Doing the same myself and yep I can't believe we will get to that glorious complete Dante in hardback.

As well as the title story, the Dark Justice volume contains all the stories included in the first Fall of Deadworld volume. Unfortunately it doesn't include the full-page Dave Kendall nightmare-inspired portraits of the four DJs, although these are shown in the article at the back. Stunning art throughout.

Has anyone else’s Dark Justice got a misprinted spine? Mine seems to be bleeding around to the front cover.
Never ever bloody anything ever

Mine's a millimeter or two over, but I can live with that.

How does it look on the shelf next to the previous Dredd vol and the first Strontium volume?
Does the spine image line up alright or is it the 3rd time this collection that they've ballsed that up?
