Vol 8 - Lord Of The Beasts
Vol 9 - Book Of Invasions 1 (Moloch, Golamh, Scota)
Vol 10 - Book Of Invasions 2 (Tara, Odacon, Carnivale)
Vol 11 - The Wanderer, Book of Scars
Vol 12 - Brutania 1, Brutania 2
Vol 13 - Brutania 3, Brutania 4

That basically confirms your guess at the content for each of the remaining Slaine volumes then.

Are Hachette braindead?

I got a reply about my missing Slaine.  They say they don't supply local newsagents, but they supply distributors which supply newsagents, so in effect, they do.

What the hell are these muppets up to.

ABC Warriors 5 collects Volumes 1 and 2 of the Volgan War, as we suspected it might. Such a lush-looking book - wish that Rebellion would collect things this way, and not package each volume as a measly 96-page book. (Incidentally, what we have here is the 'remastered' version that Clint did for the trades, not the original prog versions).

It's confirmed in the intro that volumes 37 and 38 will collect the entirety of the Books of Invasion; and the Warriors are mentioned as being 'on indefinite leave in the prog' - meaning, I suppose, that there's no new tale in the pipeline (presumably because Pat's busy with Spacewarp - and hopefully not that he's burnt bridges with Rebellion over royalties or somesuch).

One of the highlights of the entire collection this next ABC volume

Eaglemoss do the same. I had 2 issues of my Star Trek Graphic Novel collection go missing from the newsagents. Bought them online instead. And then 10 weeks later they arrive at the newsagents. Thankfully just another 20, at 1 a week, to go for that collection. Should be done by February.

The latest issue was a no-show this morning at my local Thrill-merchant, who showed me the delivery note which said something like, "insufficient stock". Hmm. It is available on the Hachette site so hopefully will turn up in the next few days.

Finished the latest two issues. ABC was pretty great although I question the need for the double page splash artwork that I assume was part of the previous collection but not in the prog. Just one more in this series. Shame we aren’t getting the follow ups too.
On Rogue, I liked the different locations though the crabs were clearly xenomorph knockoffs. And it looks like the final rogue will skip The Hit?

Hate to break it to you, but there’s well over a year left to go on that. It’s been extended to 145 issues.

Volgan War 1 still s no-show at the Thrill-merchant so have ordered from FP. Hopefully just a blip...

Still a no show for my missing Slaine.  I know I'm not a Slaine fan but I don't want a gap in the collection.

Those covers are lovely.

So, SD is 8 volumes?  Thought it was 10 - or was I dreaming?

Seven numbered, with the last of those due soon including Final Solution, and three modern volumes.
