Nope 42 was the last highest I received. And that was yesterday.

Nope. Not hugely surprised. Over four weeks since my previous delivery.

I think only one book of each, and that won't be enough to collect all of Savage. Most likely we'll just get the three Charlie Adlard series...

So, basically hang onto my copy of Savage:Taking Liberties and The Guvnor.  Oh, and of course Invasion.  Thanks to the generosity of someone here I have Disaster 1990.  It's just I feel that the printed books have been left on a cliff hanger.  Rebellion seem to have a bad habit of this.

Read Strontium Dog all in one sitting, and thoroughly enjoyed it.  Durham Red is definitely an interesting character as well.  It's funny, I've moaned about the amount of Slaine books, but if there was that amount in SD, I don't think I would be too bothered.

Is there any chance we've got the amount of Slaine books wrong? I only ask as going by the Wikipedia page up to Book 48 there's only been five volumes.

Meaning with only 32 books left they've got to fit in another 8 Slaine Vols to make up to the revealed 13 books. That's one every four, surely they'd have spaced the books out better earlier in the run if that was the case?

No chance, I'm afraid (well - only if you don't like Slaine. if you do, then I'm delighted!)

The spacing is a bit weird. I suppose the thinking is that so much Slaine so early might have lead to a few folk dropping out; but anyone who's stuck with the collection well past the halfway mark is probably in it for the long haul come what may.

I think one of them might have been ABC volume 2, and one of the Nikolai Dante books (vol 2 or 3 maybe)

Thought I'd just ask the facebook page about the remaining Slaine volumes:

Quote
2000 AD: The Ultimate Collection Hey Tom,
At the present moment issues 49, 54, 58, 61, 66, 70, 73 and 79 are Slaine, however this is subject to change as the collection goes on.
Hope this helps!

I certainly hope that doesn't change. It's one every other delivery. God forbid I should get two Slaines in a row, or even two in the same delivery! Unless "as the collection goes on" is a very veiled reference to an extension.

I hadn't thought to look at is as deliveries, but yes you're right: one every other delivery from July onwards.

I was updating the wikipedia page, and it already has 66 for Nikolai Dante 6, and 70 for Durham Red, so I asked if they'd been changed.

I was just looking at wikipedia and spotted that this only took us to volume 12 and thought - hang on I thought there were supposed to be 13 books and I'm pretty sure we didn't start counting from 0.

Then I remembered The Horned God / Volume 4 debacle - sigh - bloody idiots.

You can't start a partwork with 'Volume Four' - so i do get that decision. But the simple answer, of course, was give all the Slaine books names - 'Warrior's Dawn', 'Time Killer' etc.

Or just have HG as 4 implicitly and number the next one 5.
