If they're the same as the Dredd books, they will be about 1cm shorter and 0.5cm deeper than Rebellion softbacks.

Cool - thank you. Man that makes the Dante issues at least pretty tempting... if only the size was... yes, yes I'm being greedy!

Also, a complete collection of Cabballistics...

But is that possible... snark snark...

 I wonder how they are going to release Nikolai Dante, currently books 4,5 and 7 are the only one's out of print, and will be the most desirable. It's a nightmare only be able to get 8 out of 11 of the books.

I assume the figurines will be the Doctor Who or Marvel sized, as per usual. Bloody expensive if they are, and no Slaine!!!! maybe there is more to come if the collection is extended.

How big is that? Hard to tell from those pictures.

I think I'm out though - I don't have the (any) space, I've got almost all of it in prog form, I preferred the old free gifts and I got the first four books free anyway. Still, they are nice volumes ... oh for a man-cave!

After trawling through the website of the collection and 30 pages of forum chat, is there no definite list of any of the volumes beyond the first 5? I'dlike to know what im actually going to be subscribing to before i part with 800 quid...!

They don't release a full list, unfortunately. Just as they come out. Though we know we're getting the full Nikolai Dante, which is 8/9 of the books. We can also assume we'll get all of Nemesis and Slaine. Beyond that; anybody's guess really. Only Tharg knows.

Wouldn't the complete Slaine be an awful lot of books?

Dante makes sense as its a complete story that pretty quickly became about moving the chess pieces around the board and tough if you hadn't read the prior moves. Slaine? Lots of that is stand alone material. One book per period would be more than enough (B&W, Bisley, Langley, Davis)

Jim - I think the Durham Red was 3 volumes (ie series) in one Book - its 37 issues of material so around 222 pages. Matt said something along the lines of 'that'll be one nice book'.
If I'd known it was harmless I would have killed it myself.

Finally got around to this week's thrill cast - Matt's enthusiasm for this collection is really quite infectious. Very excited for this launch now

 The full Nikolai Dante is music to my ears. Though, how many books are being released per month? I could potentially be waiting a long time for them to be released.

Really hope they release them in reading order
It's a joke. I was joking.
