Interesting, since that skips over Roadhouse and Tax Dodge, along with a couple of other tales. I'm still very tempted by this collection if it happens, but wondering how 'complete' certain series are going to be (rather than having two copies of Strontium Dog, etc., on the creaking living room shelves.

I seriously doubt it's going to be Complete for each character. Sounds like they have cherry-picked a SD jumping on point. There will be even more questions for the FB page with this collection than with the JDMC!

I still plan on getting all the JD books, but i think I'll cherry pick with this collection too, should it be published mainstream. I've all the Strontium Dog books ( minus the very latest) so i don't really want to double dip.

On the other hand I have only a few Dredd case file so happy to go the Hatchette for his stuff.

Be nice to see a few rare deleted titles get a reprint in this collection like Savage or Invasion!

Well, that was a pleasant surprise.
This morning I had a large, heavy package delivered and within contained the first 4 issues of the Ultimate Collection.
A letter explaining that the series has been paused whilst they decide whether to continue or not at a later date and thanking me for my interest.
As a thank you they included the first 4 issues for which I have not been charged for.
What lovely fellows!  :D

Me too.
This was my first look at the books and they are very, very nice.

Me too. Four books and a lovely big poster! I'm really impressed with the quality.
Here are some pics for anyone who's interested:

I'd agree about the spine art, what about Chris Weston, Staples, Flint or Tom Foster....

I received the first four today as well. They look great and I'm amazed they haven't increased the price. At ten pounds these are amazing value. I love the endpapers & text pieces. The front design is a bit generic - I miss the bold b&w covers of the mega collection. I'm guessing colour covers sell better? I'd like to hear a guarantee that there's no overlap with the previous collection - I really don't need another Apocalypse War or Cursed Earth!

I had mine turn up today. I only got three though, no Slaine one so no poster.

They do look good though. Hope it makes it to a complete run.
