Hachette persisting in making it a nightmare to find any one volume, then. Odd decision, too, given that Eaglemoss has done DC and a separate Batman run. Mind you, hard to think of anything else that might have the same level of clout.

My initial reaction to the idea of a 2000AD figurine collection was "that'll be the day..." and a withering sigh. But hold! I have just found out that Europe has had a MILO MANARA FIGURINE COLLECTION- basically little models of his sexy girls, with a magazine.

Now, I love Milo Manara, and if I lived on my own and didny have access to real human women, and if I spoke Italian so could read the mags, I might be very interested in a shelf full of little resin nudes and scantily clad beauties. But I don't, I do, and I don't.

But if Manara can get such a collection, maybe there is hope for a prog-based one after all. Isnt Tharg's Mighty Organ well known across the channel? Or has Brexit done its wonderful job on that as well?

Could we feasibly look forward to the Carlos Ezquerra Figurine Collection?

Probably not. But it would be lovely.

Forbidden Planet have issue 2 down as being released on 3rd February so they probably won't send them out until then

Rogue - I've only had a cursory glance at the hachette site for this, but is there a list of 'what' is in the collection?

There are some volumes I would likely cherry pick - LSH primarily.

I'm tempted to buy the Batman issues to continue where the Eaglemoss series left off. Although that one is still running I doubt they will cover that material so soon after Hachette - they seem more focussed on older stuff.

Just got the first 2 issues, the included poster reveals a ton of upcoming books, looks like we'll be getting;

Aquaman: The Drowning
Aquaman: The Trench
Last Laugh
Infinite Crisis
The Lightning Saga
Flash: Rebirth
Flash: Terminal Velocity
Deathstroke: City of Assassins
Deathstroke: The Professional
Suicide Squad: Kicked in the Teeth
Suicide Squad: The Black Vault

A reply to a post on their FB page also suggested a Crisis on Infinite Earths collection will be coming soon so (assuming COIE is a 2 parter) we know what at least 18 of the 100 books will be

In regards to the books themselves, Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader is a souped-up version of the paperback, with the full Secret Origins Special with all the non-Gaiman bits plus an Alan Moore Clayface story.

The Harley volume is an absolute beast with about 10 issues worth of pages.

Bonus features and build quality are leagues beyond the Eaglemoss books which feel a bit flimsy to me. While the origin strips in the Eaglemoss books are nice I find the essays to be a lot more interesting than the, tbh, very dated 40s-50s comics
