Exciting times! . So if Look-In is included in that bundle,  does this mean The Trigan Empire too...?

So Rebellion basically owns every British comic character you've ever heard of, except Dan Dare, Desperate Dan and Dennis the Menace?

(to the general public, that is - people here will know an awful lot more comic characters).

Being thick there - Trigan Empire was of course Look And Learn,  not Look-In. Bah.

Funny how similar all those names are: Dan, Dan and Dennis.

This is indeed exciting! Congratulations!

I'm fascinated by this and would love to know what's in the deal. Does anyone know of a list anywhere?

Rebellion still don't unfortunately own anything originated in the 1982 Eagle. So they also don't own *Tower King, Thunderbolt and Smokey, *Doomlord, SGT Streetwise, *Joe Soap, Computer Warrior or *13th Floor.

Asterisk = bit of a gem in my opinion

The Trigan Empire really looks interesting. Hopefully one day they can own Doomlord (to get a proper reprint)
Old age is the Lord’s way of telling us to step aside for something new. Death’s in case we didn’t take the hint.

Yes, Rebellion now own The Trigan Empire
This has to be the big takeaway from this news. Absolutely immense. It's only been available in mahoosively expensive collections or random stories in a couple of collections, for decades. Please make this a priority for release.

Seconded. I have wanted an affordable, complete, run of Trigan Empire since I was about 8.
