Does Savage cover the same stuff that was in volume 2 of the Rebellion trade? Just working out if I need to get this or can wait for volume 3.

Yep identical content to the 2nd Rebellion trade (also called The Guv'nor)

Why would you not want all 3 volumes in matching hardcover?

TBF, not everyone’s obsessed with matching volumes. :D

I've picked up Ten Seconders that I'm eager to read. A good book I can finish in one sitting but I've been having sleep issues due to cold, grief and deep depression. It took me a while to finish one of Stuart McBrides thinner books.

I also don't like to start a new book till I've finished the last and here's the problem, I just can't seem to take to Lobster Random, it seems like trying to read a load of gibberish to be honest. Art is nice enough by Critchlow. That begs a question, is there a collection of Critchlows They'd books?

I have this one. Not sure how much if the strip it collects, mind.

Yeah... I was really exicted to finally have a complete Lob volume, and have my first chance to read it all again since my first, fondly-remembered progs. But I do have to admit that when read together it is all a bit... much. Spurrier's plots are very wordy, and arguably a bit over-written, often threatening to collapse under the weight of plan-and-counter plan. One to portion out a bit, maybe?

I also have that one - it's a great book (and it was dirt cheap from Forbidden Planet too which was a bonus). Think it covers all the post White Dwarf comics https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thrud_the_Barbarian#Full-length_comic My copies in storage at the moment though (waiting to move to a bigger house with more bookcases) so I can't check.

I also don't like to start a new book till I've finished the last and here's the problem, I just can't seem to take to Lobster Random, it seems like trying to read a load of gibberish to be honest.

Lobster Random did feel a bit of a slog at times. Not sure why - maybe as Jimbo says it'd benefit from being spread out a bit. Maybe take a break at the end of the current story and dive into Ten Seconders. I recently started that and it's a cracking read so far (just finished the first story). Arts a little dark in places but that might just be the crappy lighting in my bedroom (can't wait to move and sort that out).

I have this one knocking around somewhere:



Far from a complete collection but afaik this is the only collected volume for the old WD stuff.

Have I missed any conversation about how Brexit might affect this? Will I have to pay a customs charge now for this? I see they've added more issues to this now - I hope this doesn't end up being a nightmare to manage.

By the way can anyone tell me what number Kingdom Vol. 1 is?

I'm in Ireland, I hadn't even thought about this until today.

Assuming books are zero-rated in Ireland (which appears to be the case), it shouldn’t make any odds. (Same also for Brits importing. There should be no charge for printed matter, so long as the package doesn’t contain anything else.)

I don't have either of the Thrud books, the old White Dwarf stuff was funny as well.

Nearly finished Lobster Random, only a short bit to go and I can't say I was thrilled at all by this story, it just didn't get me.  Maybe it's just not my taste.  I prefer stuff like Savage, Rogue Trooper, Dredd/Anderson, Johnny Alpha, Nikolai Dante etc.

Lobster Random was just too strange for me, though the Critchlow art was nice.  I can't see me rereading it, but never say never, maybe my mood just isn't right for it.

Well that's a relief - thank you!
