After having skipped every single further episode of BLUNT when running in The Meg, after not getting on with the first one or two, for some reason I picked up the Ultimate Collection book when I saw it on the shelf in WHS.

And, though I still find Boo Cook's art more hard work than I would like, I have to say that I'm really enjoying it.

Glad to hear this as I was hoping this was going to be one that read better collected than it had in the Meg. The Returners was similar for me.

I was fully expecting, when I read Ace Trucking Co in the UC for the first time last year, to come away thinking 'Well, perhaps you had to be there.' But no, it's great! No need for nostalgia, or to remember what CB radio was - it's just superb in its own right.

yeah exactly this. Although having just listened through some mid-80s SpaceSpinner2000 episodes it does sound like not including the last couple of Ace stories was a good editorial call.

Both are crazy and have a very distinctive style but it's Revere that's getting my vote

think about the vinyl revival.

If Tharg was thinking about the vinyl revival he'd be pumping out endless reprints of the same material in a variety of deluxe formats aimed at the 40+ nostalgia market... oh wait.

'Slaine: Tomb of Terror' was reprinted in book 3 of the Slaine Ultimate Collection editions. (Although I seem to remember from a long lost thread that the last page from the game-playing section was omitted).

We got Tomb Of Terror. But I don't remember getting the You are Slaine game alongside it we just got the linear story.

Finished this months books. Enjoyed the Devlin volume more than I expected, having not been a huge fan of the Kot run when it's been in the Meg. Another case of reading better collected than serialised maybe. It does end at a very frustrating point though, not sure why they cut it off there meh. Hadn't read the 2 McConville stories before, they were just before I started buying the Meg. They're both servicable enough little occult adventures. But I tend to agree with Indigo it'd have been better to have the full Kot run to date.

The Ro-busters book is an enjoyable read. Can't go wrong with Terra-Meks it's a great story and Rise and Fall has a great supporting cast. Some of the annual stories are a bit meh - but that seems to be par for the course with the early ones. If you've got the Complete Nuts and Bolts then I think the only thing you're missing is The Inside Story from prog 144 but you gain a couple of other Ro-Jaws Robo-Tales instead. Haven't decided if I'll keep my Complete Nuts and Bolts yet. It's the nicer reprint and keeps everything in order but I'm not convinced I need 2 copies of this stuff. Guess I'll see how much shelf space I've got once I've finished redecorating.

Has You are Slaine: Tomb of Terror ever been reprinted anywhere?
Or is it one of those bits where you need to track down the original progs?

Very excited for this. Had been considering tracking down a set on ebay but I'd rather have a nice collected edition.

Gah messed up my Quote tags.  The last line in the qoute above was me:

Stickleback is down as 208 pages which should be enough for 3 series. Pretty sure that brings us right up to date.

So is Stickleback the last unknown? And does that being the strip up to date for the final reveal? I’m tempted by both of these.

Dammit, Tharg. Just when I was out, you pulled me back in again.

Going by Dark Jimbo's last post yeah that was the last unknown:
Updated list -

111 - Strontium Dog: Repo Men
112 - ABC Warriors 7
113 - ABC Warriors 8
114 - Strontium Dogs 1
115 - Strontium Dogs 2
116 - Strontium Dogs 3
117 -
118 - Mean Arena 1
119 - Mean Arena 2
120 -
121 - Cradlegrave
122 - Brass Sun 1
123 - Brass Sun 2
124 - The Returners
125 - Devlin Waugh
126 - Finn 1
127 - Finn 2
128 -
129 -
130 - Ro-Busters 1
131 - Ro-Busters 2
132 - Rogue Trooper: War Machine
133 - Blunt
134 - Revere
135 - Samantha Slade
136 - The Fall of Deadworld
137 - Sin/Dex 4
138 - Sin/Dex 5
139 - Sin/Dex 6
140 - Sin/Dex 7

A mere 4 gaps left now(!), and we know that the following are coming:

Dredd
Necronauts
Blackhawk
Leviathan

So with Necronauts almost certainly twinned with Leviathan (but not confirmed), does that leave us with one final unknown? Or perhaps two Dredd books?"

Stickleback is down as 208 pages which should be enough for 3 series. Pretty sure that brings us right up to date.
