The Rise and Fall of the Trigan Empire Book Two
- Paperback, 288 pages, 17th November 2020

The second thrilling omnibus lost Sci-Fi classic from the sixties the New York times [sic] called "highly detailed visions of fantastic worlds"

Among the distant stars, fractious tribes come together to found a mighty empire that will wage war against aggressive kingdoms, battle alien invaders, and conceive of incredible new technologies. This extraordinary volume continues to chart the glorious Rise and Fall of the Trigan Empire!

A landmark in British comics history, painted by the legendary Don Lawrence in stunning, classic style, and springing from the grandiose pen of Mike Butterworth, this is an epic tale that creates a new far-future science fiction mythos that captured the imagination of a generation.

Features an introduction from one-time Don Lawrence apprentice Chris Weston (The Filth).

"I love Trigan Empire! It's absolutely epic."--Duncan Jones (director Source Code, Moon)


(Good to see Duncan Jones still in the fold)

The blurb says 'brand new stories' but it's not clear if that means totally new to this volume or just new as compared to the material from the 1960s-70s-80s.

Cor! is a compilation, IIRC. I may well pick that up for the nipper.

I'm stoked to see the Fiends of the Eastern Front collection. I've been watching Ebay for a long while now, hoping for a "reasonably" priced copy of Fiends (both the hard back and soft cover are expensive)

Really?

The hardback of the original series was going cheap when they were clearing stocks of old stuff a few years ago.

That's the one I've been looking for. It pops up occasionally used on ebay or Amazon for anywhere from £35 and up.

Presumably the characters on the cover give us some insight into the content?  There's Buster, standing on Helm, Stogie to the left, Janus Stark next to Anderson, Death & Walter the Wobot, Robot Archie, Grimly Fiendish, Frankie Stein, that cat girl we've been talking about, etc, a few I'm having a mental blank on (the flying metal gauntlet in front of Stark), and a few I don't know.

It's natural that the book is most likely to concentrate on material owned by Rebellion (rather than say, DCT), but it's interesting to see the representation here ties in with material Rebellion has (or is soon) reprinting and/or rebooting.  I assume the overlap is merit based (i.e. Rebellion are bringing back material they consider is worth displaying, and the author has separately identified the same great artists and characters as worthy of discussion, rather than the book being just a way to push available product).
