Roll-out October cannot wait !!!
Old age is the Lord’s way of telling us to step aside for something new. Death’s in case we didn’t take the hint.

The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.

Just  pre-ordered this. Will the third volume be the final one or will the story stretch to more?

Original run finished at the end of February 1987, so the third will probably be the last.

Well, my copy has arrived, and man, The Thirteenth Floor really goes mental after Max moves to the department store. I can remember the early episodes of that phase fairly well - great to see the Ian Kennedy wraparound cover again, with the monsters on the escalator - but the later 'secret agent' stuff is only stirring the dimmest of memories, and I'm not sure I've ever read the episodes where he's reinstalled at Maxwell Tower. I presume there's still enough of that era to reprint for a Vol. 3?

It's wonderfully mad. As far as I recall there are about 145 episodes of TTF, so there should be enough (50 or so episodes) for another volume.

Cheers, Joe. It'll be interesting to see how successful Wagner and Grant were at wrangling the strip back into its original direction after the frankly bizarre exploits of this volume.

How successful?  Considering the length 'til the next volume I think I might have to dig out my Eagle collection for that answer.  In all honesty though my recollection is ... "pretty well, actually" ...

I think with the Eagle merge they had a directive to fit it a bit more in with the action / adventure nature of the other title.  Bit hit and miss but still good fun and let's face it, head and shoulders above the competition even so ...

Shout out to whoever designed the hardcovers for this series - beautiful distinctive work.
If I'd known it was harmless I would have killed it myself.
