I think they reprinted some of Dash in the Kev O'Neill's Cosmic Comics release.

The strip really deserves a chunky Case Files phone book type release. They could enlarge the art so that  each page only has two panels.  The story would be printed both in sharp, original B&W followed by a colourised version.  I like the idea of having the B&W panel and identical colour panel below it on the same page, so that you can read the B&W version by following the top half of each page, or the colourised version by looking at the bottom of each page.  That would mean every page would have to be in colour, so realistically* the colourised version would be in it's own section following the B&W part.  The last part of the book would be reproductions of coffee-stained scripts, marginalia, internal correspondence, design sketches, reader survey results, mock-ups of Flopsy Bunny comic, etc.

* As 'realistic' as any of this is.

I thought 'Dept K' was a Kellogg's breakfast cereal.

Cosmic Comic has all the episodes from the Prog - I think that's all of it isn't it?

To be fair to The Cosh, he is living in country with a bizarre foreign culture and seldom spoken English.
That recent Hibernia release may have passed him by.

Wait - he's not living in Scotland anymore?

There was a Special Effects[/] two-pager written and drawn by Kev that was in the 2000AD Annual 1982 that has never been reprinted.

Ah! So it has. I read Captain Klep and some of the more obscure stuff when it arrived and never even clicked that old Dash was in there. Cheers!

Arf!

Forgot about that one - I covered it here (technically it's a one-page strip and a one-page 'making of' feature ;))
