Has Pandora ever been reprinted? Love some Hicklenton art but don't think I've read this one.

2nd Flesh volume is on my hope list for the 2nd Hachette extension. Some of the things they've done digital onlys for seem to be turning up (Revere) so fingers crossed for this and Armoured Gideon.

+1 for that Peter Milligan volume. That'd be an excellent addition to the run.

In a contest between these 2 it's got to be Skip Tracer. Better thrills have already fallen but that's the nature of this kind of tourney.

I'm still hoping, in vain I suspect, that Slaughter Bowl gets sneaked into the Ultimate collection.

I'm hoping it might get included in the promised Revere volume.

Another might be Necronauts?

That's Rennie & Irving rather and we've not got a credit for Rennie so I suspect not.

Cradlegrave has Frazer Irving, Simon Davis and Ian Edginton. So what else is going in there?

Survivor Type - is the only story written by Smith and drawn by Davis.  So maybe that.
A Love Like Blood - seems the obvious guess for an Irving drawn Smith tale.

For the Edginton credit my guess is Stone Island. Davis was the artist on both stories and it'd be a good body horror combo with Cradlegrave.

It makes the fatal error of having a Death Planet that doesn't seem that deadly and indeed the final threat is a bunch of Pirate types.

Yeah I was all up for a Helltrekkers style gradual elimination of the survivors by the deadly planet. I'm not sure why we needed the space priate plot at all. And the ending was pants.

Couldn't remember if I'd read Death Planet or not. Checked through my digital archives and realised I had it in a floppy with a Meg back issue (I think from that period Tharg was selling discounted bundles). Figured I'd give it a read... well that was a thing... certainly not Thargs finest and feels very of it's time.

While not the biggest Regened fan I'll go for Pandora Perfect. It's light and a bit silly but it does it well and the prog needs a little of that every now and again. I'm not sure we need anymore thrills of the vintage that gave us Death Planet.

I see - so it's Tharg as the annoying drunk requesting entirely inappropriate songs and generally annoying the DJ. hmmmmmm.

Someone really should have googled a little more for reference for that Tharg DJ pic. I mean those are clearly a set of 1210s but no one in their right mind mixes by reaching over the needle like that - that's asking for trouble. Flip them 180degrees and you'd have a standard scratch mix setup.

Sadly, I think that ship has sailed. Before the UC, Books 5 and 6 had only ever managed to get a Meg floppy, and Book 7 had never been reprinted.

Much as I hate to agree the choice to stick 5 & 6 in floppy does tend to indicate that they had no intention of continuing the run of trades :( Which is shame as the art in that final story was stunning stuff.

anyone know why we not getting Defoe in its entirety? Really love this series and these hardbacks have been amazing.

I guess someone decided that there wasn't space to spread it over 3 books which inevitably meant skipping the end due to lack of space. I mean we could get a book of mixed Mills endings in the next extension there's the final Slaine story and this final Defoe. I'm not going to hold my breath though I suspect we won't be seeing either of those.

Another pair I've read. SnR always felt like it was trying a little too hard to be zany for me so I think this one goes to Tor Cyan - by far the best thing to come out of Mercy Heights.

There's not the long narrative arc that Lone Wolf has, it's a series of stories featuring the same central character. There are a few repeat characters but generally each tale is a self contained story about a criminal and how they came to be executed by Yamada Asaemon. Some of the stories can be a bit grim/depressing at times but they're beautifully drawn and there's clearly a lot of research gone into the setting and characters. I'm actually looking forward to seeing the art on a bigger screen as the volumes I have from dark horse are all quite small (10*15).

Awesome I've been after the Lady Snowblood books for a while but they're always stupid expensive on ebay and the like, same with Path of the Assassin. I've got full sets of Lone Wolf and Cub and Samurai Executioner on the book shelf (both of which are fantastic). Even taking the double dip into account that this still looks like a bargin (especially as a digital double dip doesn't eat up shelf space). Was never that into Crying Freeman but willing to give it another go.
