There's been an early production leak. I think it looks excellent:

Why is he not arresting the guy with the T-shirt that says something about comics on it. He probably has a bagful of illegal comics. Get 'im, Dreddy!

"The plan is to make the series an ensemble drama about a team of Judges" - very cool, exactly what I was hoping for.

My advice to the producers: watch every damn episode of Hill Street Blues, and learn. Whilst I'm not saying they should be aiming to make "HSB with Judges", I'd really like to see them replicate that sense of barely controlled anarchy the show often portrayed so successfully. It's perfect for Mega-City one, particularly if they go with the movie concept: "Twelve serious crimes reported every minute. Seventeen thousand per day. We can respond to around six percent."

Yeah, I'm not big on reading my comics digitally but I have to admit that I'm very tempted to make an exception for these and would certainly pick up a Sinister Dexter and other like-minded collections.

Same here. I will definitely be making an exception for The Red Seas, it's an awesome series.

Hmph, they sold out when they started bringing out albums with fewer than 25 tracks. ;)

Does this book contain any material not included in the three Durham Red TPB's already released in the UK (ie. Empty Suns, Vermin Stars and Scarlet Cantos)?

Not sure if I should order it or not.
Thanks in advance.

Considering Carlos Ezquerra is credited, I would assume it does. The art in the 3 TPBs you refer to was by Mark Harrison. The story "Bitch" however was originally printed as a Strontium Dog story and is reprinted in one of the Agency Files volumes (Vol. 4?). There was a story called "lsle of the Damned" which was printed under the Durham Red title which may be in it.

Welcome to the jungle, we've got fun and games. And comics.

I think it would be great to see the case Files series switch over to hardback going forward.
Good grief. Imagine the complaints about the change in spine size and the price-hike that would cause.

Yeah. Don't **** with my case files. That's ten years of collecting right there.

(I know lots of people disagree with software patents...

Indeed, particularly when they are patenting an idea so obvious a 5 year old could come up with it. The first time I ever read a comic on my phone my immediate thought was "this would work far better panel by panel", and as someone with just literally a minuscule amount of programming experience the method of drawing 'virtual' boxes around the relevant areas and then having the device zoom on that area was obvious straight away.

Of course it would have taken a little more work than that to develop it into something that could be patented, but this is the sort of inane crap that companies are, in effect, claiming they should have some sort of exclusive rights on because they 'thought of it first' (when they probably didn't, they were probably just the first to have the resources to do something about it). The they abuse the patent system to enforce that.

The Amazon 'one click shopping' idea is equally obvious.

Mine was pre-ordered from Amazon and has arrived, twice. (The first copy was damaged, I returned it and the replacement arrived today).

The comic, 2000 AD,
Is the greatest in the galaxy.
All mortals shall cower,
Awed by it's thrill-power,
For that's how Tharg meant it to be.

theres no dog called Mek-Quake!  ;)

There once was droid known as Mek-Quake,
Whose pleasure and joy was to unmake.
"Big jobs!" he'd proclaim,
As he'd rupture and maim,
Both robots and humans in his wake.

Thar once wuz a buttist named Mean,
Whose buttin' wuz viciously keen;
With his dial set ta four,
He'd butt ya ta gore,
'Til all that wuz left wuz yore spleen.

B Format is a particular size of paperback: 130mm x 198mm (5.12″ x 7.8″). Personally, I find it somewhat annoyingly small for comics, but then I'm a'gittin' old and my eyesight aint what it use ta be.
