Very happy to see more Hugo Platt stuff. Rebellion is nailing this stuff!

Death Squad - Paperback, 128 pages, 6th August 2020

Alan Hebden, Carlos Exquerra, Eric Bradbury

An all-out all-action, complete-in-one brutal war story from the pages of the classic war comic, Battle, hugely influential on Preacher and The Boys creator Garth Ennis.

Excellent - one I remember vividly from my youth, particularly Licker, the Arnold Rimmer of the squad. My kind of character! That's a must-buy.

Maybe The Sarge could turn out to be hugely influential on Garth Ennis too...

The Sarge was always my favourite as a kid - I was a fool and didn't fully appreciate the wonder that was Charley's War back then. Figure they'll get to it eventually given the sterling work being done to date.

They certainly are!  I'm glad to see more Carlos being released (not to mention Alan Hebden and Eric Bradbury, especially the latter - just read "Invasion 1984" on the weekend), and also further releases in the Sexton Blake line.  I thought they'd wait to see how the first two do but this is great.  I really hope they re-release the "Crime at Christmas" stories by Gwyn Evans.

I also read halfway through my copy of Sweeny Toddler yesterday.  Absolutely brilliant release!  I would love to see a companion volume with Sweeny stories by the other writers and artists, and I still hold out hopes we'll see a complete "Bad Time Bed Time" collection in hardback.

JUDGES Volume Two -  Paperback, 432 pages, 28th May 2020

The second volume of the hit new series exploring the early history of 2000 AD’s all-powerful “Judges.”

The United States of America, 2041

Eustace Fargo’s new justice system has been in effect for close to a decade. The old days of long waiting times and investigative backlogs are over: judgement is quick, and sentencing is instantaneous. The old police academies have all shut down, and the new order is triumphant.

But are things any better? Unrest is worse than ever. Criminals are more likely than ever to kill rather than be caught. There’s a war coming for the streets…

This omnibus collects three novellas by Michael Carroll, Joseph Elliott-Coleman and Maura McHugh.

He didn’t think it too many, etc! (Mills rant presumably imminent in 3… 2… 1…)

I’m slightly surprised this one’s not hardback, TBH.

The Amazon UK listing could be wrong.  'Deluxe' equates more in my mind with hardback too.

Definitely paperback - https://2000ad.com/post/5984

Slaine: The Horned God – Collector’s Edition is a 208-page 210 x 276mm paperback collection, retailing at £19.99/$24.99 and arriving in stores on May 20, 2020.

Counting down to the alternative titles now...

Slaine: The Horned God - We Didn't Think it Too Many Edition?

Slaine: The Horned God - Did You Read Pat's Blog Edition?

etc.

Love the story, great to see it staying in print, but not one for me - I think I must have at least three editions kicking around here, along with the original progs  :D
