I'd like to see some of the post classic Rogue Trooper from Realpolitik on.

Isn't that already scheduled for the 5th book?

Quote
2000 AD: The Ultimate Collection Hey Dan,
Included in Rogue Trooper Volume 5 is the following stories...
Cinnabar; What Lies Beneath; Weapons of War; Overkill; Lions; Visit to the Boneyard; Requiem; Angels; Ghouls; Realpolitik; Condor Six Down; Dead Ringer; What if... Gunnar.
Hope this helps!

I guess a 6th book with War Machine is a possibility though, is there enough other worthwhile Rogue to get the page count up.

I've also realised I left no room for any further Sinister Dexter volumes in my list - seems likely there'll be 1 or 2 more of those. Do we have any idea what's going to be in book 3? And how many more books would be needed to wrap up the next major storyline after that?
I'd really like to get a bit more up to date with this strip as I feel like I'm missing some back story for some of the recent episodes in the prog.

Can I just say how bemusing it is reading the enthusiasm for the extension in light of the despair over Hachette's customer service recently.

I buy the books from Forbidden Planet, so I'm afraid Hachette's customer service doesn't really bother me!

The customer service is atrocious. Errors in the books are frustrating. The spine art is divisive. But the product as a whole is excellent – and it’s not like Rebellion is churning out HCs itself. If the company was in a position to mirror Image’s excellent oversized hardcovers, I’d buy them instead.

Oh I see. That's very Hachette isn't it! Let's casually drop that into the conversation. No need to make an official announcement now....

Cheers,

I don't really visit that thread as I'm not a subscriber. And not as active on the forum as I used to be either.

But interesting to see it get an extension.

It might be, bear in mind I gave up reading 2000ad before the whole 'Galactic Hitman' storyline, and never knew of Realpolitik till years later, and was unaware of just how much there was from Hitman onwards, including Jaegir, Friday and the 86ers.

Ahh fair enough - this is all new to me really. I just did quite a bit of research before signing on (decided I'd rather risk spoilers and make an informed choice) and alongside rediscovering a love of comics I've also rediscovered a love of spreadsheets and cataloguing things.

Really hoping we'll see a book of Jaegir in the extension the recent run in the prog was great.

What I'd really like to see in the extension is a complete run of Defoe. Complete Stickleback might also be nice.

Well I picked up Invasion today, haven't burst the seal so I don't know if its the exact same as the Rebellion Invasion book, I imagine so.  I've got two Slaine books, this, and the Hewligans Haircut book to read.

I'd like to see a few more 'classic era' as in earlier stories in an extension as well, though to be honest I can't think of any must haves.  VC's would be nice though I have them all, a hardcover would be nice.  Leviathan might be a nice one, and surely if there was to be any more Dredd a Captain Skank volume should be in there.

When you open it let me know if the Back endpapers are upside down?

Would more Lawless be out of the question, even if the first book came in the Mega Collection?

A Fiends book would be a nice inclusion; plenty to choose from now between the classic strip, the Durham Red one-shot, the Bishop/MacNeil story, and the Edginton revival.
