Why has there not been a third volume of Defoe? Hard to believe it didn't sell well enough.

There probably should have been a new collection of Savage by now as well.

You'd have to imagine that the twin avalanches of the Mega- and Ultimate Collections, not to mention the Treasury series, have slowed down the schedule of compiling more conventional collections.

Not to mention the concern that buyers have finite resources, especially when you had the overlap of the Mega-Collection and Ultimate Collection.

Billy's Boots 1 Hardcover  – 7 February 2019

Fantasy meets football in the magical story of a boy and his enchanted boots! William’s Wish Wellingtons meets Roy of the Rovers!

Young Billy Dane was one of the most passionate football fans at Bingley Road Junior school…unfortunately he was also one of the worst players!

This is an e-book listing. Hopefully it will be collected later in a "non-volatile storage medium" (- Blank Reg).

Bigger Than Biggs (Judge Anderson: Rookie Book 4) - Abaddon Books, 3rd December 2018.

Mega-City One, 2100 AD. Psi-Judge Cassandra Anderson’s second year on the streets as a full-Eagle Judge.

There’s trouble brewing in the Eee-Zee Rest; biker gangs, kidnappings and riots are all pretty standard in Mega-City One, but the block is off-limits – the owner’s just too clean to investigate.

Seconded to another division, Anderson gets suspicious: something’s terrifying the residents, and it’s not your average perp or bouncer. When biker Vex returns a kidnap victim and asks Anderson for help, the Psi-Judge knows this is the opportunity she’s been looking for.

But the thing that lurks in the basement is something new. Something greedy. Something hungry.

If she's a full judge then why does the cover show her in a cadet's uniform?

'The Complete Caballistics Inc.' is listed on Amazon as released on 21st February 2019. Torn between buying this or the two 2000ad Ultimate Collection hardcovers?? Can't make up my mind which is the better buy.

It largely depends on which format you like best. But Ultimate will also have some bonus material that probably won't be in the other one, like interviews and character designs and that kind of thing.

Wait for the Complete edition.  Because it might be.....complete?
