Huh.
A real pity we are not getting the Hogan / Hughes Robo-Hunter strips.

They have never been reprinted in colour.

“The best of Sonny Steelgrave”

Why no Hershey volume?
I cannot be the only person who liked those stories in the megazine..
I assume the new ones written by Rob Williams are good too...

Well 150 is a nice round number...
Maybe we'll get a 10 issue extra expansion to the list.

Issues 117-118 (Mean arena 1 and Strontium Dogs 2) really has proved to be the lowest ebb of thrillpower in the series to date. I'm half way through both books and struggling to find the will to finish them. There's some nice art but that only goes so far.

Strontium dogs 2 is a real slog. It surprised me to be honest because I liked them at the time. That said it was just after this era that I stopped buying the comics....

The War Machine volume is better, but really reminds me that a whole lot of the Friday era stories were completely forgettable. I was interested to see Dave Gibbons talk about other story ideas he had for the character. If he had kept writing it for a bit longer it might have become something more.
The two John Smith shorts were OK.
The Friday / Dredd crossover was just strange. It seemed to be about a different character.

It seems crazy to reprint the Hogan stories, when they are not highly regarded and there are so many better alternatives.

Oh one persons opinion does not make it so. I love the Hogan and Hughes stories, particularly Metrobolis which was superb. Rian Hughes art was just spot on for the series. It was a real palette cleanser after the Miller years.

That's Robo-Hunter. I hope the teased samantha slade volume has the hogan / hughes stories as well. I was really disappointed when I bought the robo hunter droid files 2 and these stories were reprinted in black and white.

so war machine is as we suspected from the creator credits the war machine and glimmer rats packaged together split up by a whole bunch of one off friday stories including enfleshlings. the poster prog story and the judge dredd crossover

That sounds good. I would love to see a list of the one-offs. There was some nice art from kevin walker and chris weston on a couple of the stories in the Rogue trooper annual so I am curious if those ones made it in.

finn can easily fit into two volumes heck vol 1 seems to be the first two arcs and the crisis castoff if my sums are correct

I'm curious if we've had a confirmation that treasury of British comics will do a volume three collection of third world war? The rest of the Crisis episodes should fit in a final volume. I hope they don't leave it hanging.

Given the secrecy, it must be:

- Dry Run
- Wireheads, reprinted twice within the same book
- Mark Millar’s Robo-Hunter

Junker / Trash
The complete Michael Fleischer Rogue Trooper
Kola Kommandos / Babe race 2000

The Durham Red episode from 1993 Yearbook The Golden Mile reprint called Ring My Bell for some reason?

Awesome list there.

Are there any hints in the text about whether we get 2 or three Strontium Dogs volumes?

I am loving the Small House volume. It's an absolutely amazing collection.

Maybe The Dead from a stylistic standpoint (if very much not an art one), but we’ve heard nothing about that being included in the collection (alas).

I want a Peter Milligan scripted one-offs volume:
The Dead
Shadows
Freaks
Tribal Memories
Counterfeit Girl

Also -is there anything that would pair with Bix Barton?
Nothing comes to mind for me.

So if Cradlegrave won't include Revere, which seems to be the case, what else will be in the Revere volume? As far as I can tell the only other John Smith series that hasn't been reprinted so far is Slaughter Bowl, so maybe that and one-off Dredds, Rogues, Future Shocks and, as has been suggested, Danzig's Inferno?
Knowing my luck we'll get that volume filled up with Bradley instead.

Maybe they can sneak in the missing Steve Sampson illustrated story in whatever volume gets Revere in the next lot.
And Pretty Please! throw in Danzigs Inferno
I love that story.
