True. Whatever happened to that Milligan and Dayglo strip: The Underground Railroad?

The Devils Railroad not sure but it looks like it has disappeared in obscurity

Possibly delayed by Rufus’ relocation to France and subsequently having to practically build a new studio from scratch? He was Instagram-ing photos of himself up to his knees in rubble a few weeks back…

If I read my notes right it was promoted as a Thrills of the Future back in Prog 2122 in the spring of 2019. I'm getting that early 1990s vibe when stories like Kola Kommandos and Firekind would turn up years after Tharg started promoting them (hopefully this will be more like the latter than the former).

......but the difference is whom can end a series in two panels where as the whole thing was written as a possible trilogy, rewrite on rewrite.........

Something interesting about the Dragontamer collection: Dragontamer features multiple pages that have been remastered specifically for this collection by Manco, enhancing his storytelling and critically-acclaimed work, and transforming the original serialised story into a career-defining work of art!

This might sway me to get the collection..........

Here is an article that shows how the pages has been enhanced:

Yeah I agree - that's a very smart looking move. Be interesting to see the format "square-bound bookazine" looks and feels bt it sounds very enticing (well aside from my irrational hatred of the word bookazine!

Defo purchase.

That’s a very cool development to covers uncovered. Auto-purchase.
If I'd known it was harmless I would have killed it myself.

Yeah very interesting idea. I do a digital sub and then buy trades of the things I like for re-reads. This would make a nice addition to the collection. Especially at that price.

Wonder if our Pete 'the lovely' Wells will get a mention in it for originating the Blog which (kinda) spawned this... arh a sentence with Pete Wells and spawned feels so right...
