Got my dispatch notice from Forbidden Planet for the 8th Dante volume - 1 to go - very excited! Then Red Seas!

Got mine too, although only after ordering another one direct from Hachette. Now attempting to cancel the Hachette order... Oh well!

It's sooooo good.  Can't wait to get the last one and then commence a full re-read from start to finish.

If you can’t, sell it on eBay. This series has a low print run now, and so chances are someone will want it. (Just be mindful to factor in your additional costs on selling.)

I haven't been keeping track of the issues,  so how many of the initial 80 are left?

Received my Nikolai Dante today and just one more and I can read the whole series for the very first time - something I'm really looking forward to. Just wonder whether the story 'Devil May Care' from the 40th Anniversary Prog of 2017 will be included in the last volume?

Yeah not sure, I'd image they'll pop it in but if not its far from essential, a nice DVD extra.

As Broodbilk says you are in for a real treat. I'm jealous of folks who can delve into this wonderful story and read it as the complete epic from start to finish for the first time. Enjoy.

I'll be eager for the later Savage volumes that go beyond the trades already printed.  I recently reread Taking Liberties and The Guv'nor and I know the extension has a volume planned beyond that.  What struck me was just how dark the Savage books were compared to Invasion which was very much a product of its time, national stereotypes and all.  It's the same with many of the older stories that got updates.  VC's back in action was very different from the originals, Rogue Trooper:Realpolitik was grimmer than the originals and although not an update but in the same universe, Jaegir and 86er's were the same.

There are only another two volumes, not three - but potentially (because some Hachette volumes contain four 'books' rather than three, or Rebellion's average of two) they could still collect all remaining Savage material...

Well the original print run of 80 books has Invasion and we will be getting one called Savage.  There was the extension list published some time back that had these two

85 - Savage:  The Guv'nor
95 - Savage:  Rise Like Lions

So it looks like there will be more than was printed in the original softcover trades.
