I’m well up for this! Just saying.

Looking forward to this, especially if the series includes the work that wasn't already reprinted as someone noted earlier, as I have the lavish books from the Don Lawrence collection but would appreciate a collection that I didn't need to treat with kid gloves.

I am also - so up for this - just wish it was sold just before Xmas , instead of having to wait till next year
I am 53 so read the Trigan Empire issues in the 1970's and early 1980's with Look and Learn

= and a lot of the stories have not aged at all , plus the art work was incredible , even when the original artist left due to creator payment issues over sales from abroad , that he was not paid .

It is a just wonderful series that deserves to be more freely available than the very expensive Dutch Hardbacks that were printed a few years ago ( at eye watering prices ) .

Some concept art by maestro Weston for a proposed TV series:

Is there some particular reason why Chris Weston isn't one of the most famous comics/concept artists in the world? Did he run over a senior freemasons's cat? Do a half-arsed job on a Rockefeller's driveway?

He seems to have plenty of fans in the movie industry, but obscurity is a pitfall of making a living producing art that most people never see.

My copy of the HC arrived yesterday.

Gorgeous, as expected.

Mine arrived this morning. I can finally look at retiring my folder of old look and learn clippings. The second vol HB isn't available for pre-order yet is it? I'm going to get paranoid about missing it

Vol. 2 paperback release date is showing as "November", James.

Based on vol. 1, I'm guessing the HC pre-orders will pop up July/August time?

I have still to receive the Hard Back Edition - my account was charged but the copy has yet to be sent out
for shipping - they received stock , but it doesn't show anything online - I ordered mine from Forbidden Planet

seriously looking forward to reading it - and getting the second edition HB to accompany it
 ( I read it in the mid to late 1970's )

Hopefully Rebellion are slowly waking up to the specialised market for HB editions of their books.  I'm hoping that the 2nd volume of 13th floor gets the HB treatment as well.  I've given up on the prospect of HB editions of the Dredd Casefiles though.   :(

I'm still annoyed that they switched to TPB for the rest of the Movie Dreddworld books after the first volume.  I get how limited the market is but look at how fast the Nemesis volume shifted last year, and this is a book that has been reprinted I don't know how many times.
