If there's anyone who is subscribing who doesn't want the covers special, I will happily buy it from you.

I managed to get the first one on eBay after Hachette refused to sell me one because I prefer to support my local thrill merchant than subscribe.

One series I'd love to see happening is a Gerry Anderson collection with all those Thunderbirds, Stingray et all stories, so why hasn't this happened yet?
Eaglemoss tested one in 2013. Presumably it didn't sell well enough as it never went to a national launch.

The volume number is on the back cover. Issue 3 is Volume 57.

Hey, I have a simple spreadsheet with the dates plugged in to add 14 days to the last volume, and the issue numbers came from Facebook. But now that you mention it, I realise I didn't account for the three weeks on issue 1, so it should be:

08   72   Nikolai Dante 1   06/12/2017
12   73   Nikolai Dante 2   31/01/2018
19   74   Nikolai Dante 3   09/05/2018
35   75   Nikolai Dante 4   19/12/2018
53   76   Nikolai Dante 5   28/08/2018
62   77   Nikolai Dante 6   01/01/2018
69   78   Nikolai Dante 7   08/04/2018
74   79   Nikolai Dante 8   17/06/2018
77   80   Nikolai Dante 9   29/07/2018

The Google Docs spreadsheet is here

Your dates from volumes 5 and beyond are wrong. The final Dante will be in 2020, not 2018.

Hard to believe we're into the home straight now
Hachette's Marvel Ultimate Graphic Novel Collection, originally slated for 60 issues, has just been extended yet again to 170.

If JDMC ends at 80, I'll eat my hat.

Arrgghh! No MC in Forbidden Planet today. Apparently they've not had it in for a number of weeks. Am i going to have to order any remaining issues from Hachette direct?!!!
Not if you don't want to. Any decent newsagent will be able to place a order for you.

A second collection is currently being tested in a couple of areas. Here's the blurb from the website:

"Welcome to Marvel's Mightiest Heroes, the definitive graphic novel collection bringing you all the most iconic and influential Marvel heroes from the past 50 years. In each novel we focus on one character or team providing all their background information, their timeline and exclusive bonus strips including their most significant story arcs or their first appearances. From Spidey to Wolverine, from The Avengers to X-Men and everyone in between we hope you enjoy this incredible collection."

It'll be interesting to see the pricing of this if it goes national. In one area it's being tested with a regular price of £9.99, the same as the current collection, but in the other area the regular price is £10.99
