General / Re: How to collect Nikolai Dante GN's?
« on: 04 June, 2017, 07:35:07 PM »
Annoyingly, the edition that takes us through to the end (the numbered purple spines) is currently only available from vol 6 (Hell and High Water) onwards, and the latest reprint (with character pics on the spines) seems to have stalled at vol 3 (Love and War), meaning both Tsar Wars volumes (4 and 5) are out of print. I eventually located vol 5 in a comic shop after much searching online, but vol 4 has eluded me - I finally cracked and bought the digital version, as my reread had been thwarted for months by then.

The whole saga is ripe for a reprint in mega volumes, grouped a bit more sensibly than they have this far:
1. Up to the outbreak of war
2. The war
3. Pirate Dante
4. In the employ of the Tsar
5. The revolutions (both of them) and conclusion

I feel sorry for Dredd. He's obviously dying for the robot to fuck up even though he's also impressed by it.

Dry Run
Kola Kommandos
Basically a load of 90s stuff that should never again see the light of day.

Friday prog in Perth, which is fab, as I was going away for the weekend, so could read it on the train.

2012 is this week's, cover date 4 Jan. It reached me as a subscriber a week earlier than I would have expected. I'm expecting 2013 to drop through the letterbox today, to put us back on track.

Announcements / Re: Judge Dredd: The Mega Collection discussion thread

I have to say, HMD is the one Dredd collection I own that I've never been tempted to reread. I only bought it because it was new (to me) material not featured in the prog. The Itchy and Scratchy style violence would be amusing in a one off, but it does begin to wear thin after a while. If I was selectively buying the Mega Collection I'd steer well clear of this one.

Those three words you dread, that always end a Mills story - "To Be Continued". Much as I like most of Pat's work, it would be nice if he could ever finish something.

News / Re: Rebellion To Reprint The Last American

I don't think I was aware of The Last American before this recent publicity. I'd be unlikely to buy it in hardback, but I might take a punt on a paperback.

I'd usually doubt that it's possible to spoiler the premise of a story (rather than the outcome), but it would have been a nice surprise to turn the page of Prog 2000's Dredd story and see Bishop Desmond Snodgrass rather than see it in a preview.

General / Any subscribers still waiting for 1998?
« on: 16 September, 2016, 04:36:37 PM »
I usually get my prog in the Saturday post. I'm aware there have been distribution issues, but it's now Friday and still no prog! Just about the worst week for this to happen. I'm terrified to look at the review threads in case I pick up spoilers. Just wondered if anyone else is in the same position?
If no prog tomorrow, I think it'll have to be WHSmiths for an extra one.

Why does non-Saturday delivery always happen on weeks when I'm going to be away? Even if it comes on Monday I now won't be able to see it until late night Thursday.

Seeing that list I'm astonished that I hung on in all through the 90s.

Just a reprint of the two Tsar Wars volumes would be nice. The newer editions stopped on the volume before (Love and War) and the older editions only seem to be available from the one after. I've been delaying my reread indefinitely while I try (unsuccessfully) to source these two. Sort it out Tharg!

Caul - Carcer confusion: me too. Isn't it a basic rule of writing fiction that two major characters should never have similar names?


Dredd - you really can't go wrong (though Dredd himself did - surely he would have put a guard on duty?)

Brink - as many have said, this has got better and better - Tharg, please don't ever let Dabnett go.

Shuck - no, sorry this lost me weeks ago. The bad guys just run away? Weak.

War of the Worlds - not for me I'm afraid, though I can see why others might like it.

So a middling prog for me. Looking forward to some new stories.

Or maybe Carroll just didn't want to use Anderson in the story, not being one of 'his' characters, but felt he had to mention her, as she generally always appears as part of Dredd's Dirty Dozen in the 'Take back the city' stories.
