Wider shots of shelves, please!

And, honestly, I will add mine. I just need to find an image-hosting solution that isn't blocked by my work laptop. Then the basement of thrills, the Fortress of Zarjazity, will be revealed. :)

Mine too! The three spines look a bit wonky when added together - but otherwise a glorious book!

The blurb:

One of the major highlights of the controversial 1970s comic, Action, Major Kurt Hellman is a Panzer commander in the 1940 German invasion of Belgium. But this man is no Nazi - he avoids taking life wherever possible, all while facing foes without and treachery within!

Collected for the first time, and from the very beginning, this groundbreaking series of thrilling combat is written by Gerry Finley-Day (Rogue Trooper) and drawn by Mike Dorey (Ro-Busters)

There are more books and comics than that, but they're over on the bedside cabinet waiting to be read, including the rest of Corto Maltese among others.

Phew I was about to berate you for being so behind - good to hear the rest are waiting to be read. That's a pretty nice set up and a tidy collection you got going there.

Must update the nerdcave thread at some point as there's been changes since I first set that up.

Pics please

A great showman hero who helps out the starving kids and the dispossessed, who remembers where he came from and fights injustice, couldn't happen in the real world could it?

Regarding black people specifically participating in ww2, I found this article:

What an inspiring article, would love to see what Garth Ennis would make of that...

You get one dizzy....

Has anyone explained why this is getting released in such thin volumes? It's a major series in British comics history and I can't understand why it's not being collected along similar lines to The Trigan Empire, Charley's War, The Spider, etc.

This ^^^

I've just got the 1st one and it is a thing of beauty, a collected hardback would be even nicer but.

I also agree, its a waste not to have Anderson ageing. I feel like there is a great story to be told in her coming to terms with losing her youthful good looks.
I would hope if they ever do fully address Anderson’s age and actually make her look her age, they’d move beyond the hackneyed and played out angle of a woman losing her looks. I don’t recall Anderson as ever having been especially bothered about that anyway.

You're quite right. I phrased that badly. I meant, there is a some good stories to be mined from an older/wiser Anderson.

Just hoping: Anderson, The menopause years!  involves some judicial retribution!

Sorry, I forgot. The Fortress of Zarjazity has seen significant progress. I'll collect up the pics from various stages of completion and try to post this weekend.

The Sex Pistols. Just. The Sex Pistols. And their enduring popularity in-spite of being shite and having always been shite.

Your mouth is full of wrong  :)

Well, If Covid hadn't happened I'd be on the road now to Thought Bubble 2020.

Nano-Bolt would have been starting her fourth year on team red-shirt and I would have been looking forward to meeting friends, many of whom I only see at this event. Heck, this year we were looking forward to spending quality time with Mr Mike Carroll and his lovely wife.

Here's to Thought Bubble - the finest convention in the country, and here's to next year!

So sad reading that...

Purely on the basis of who I would like to see more of in the prog (based on my reaction to their previous work) it would be 4-1 to Al. 

No disrespect to Ian, whose work I generally enjoy - he is already romping home with this one, in any case!  But Al is the one that got away (the Next Generation) for me.

This for me ^^^

Scarlet Traces, Stickleback are two of my favourites, but for every one of them there is a Kingmaker or DemX to balance them out for me while with the very odd exception the Ale Wing droid is consistantly tickling my trout... his Dredd's are soo good.

4-1 to the big Al.
