Torquemada the God - Now I've always considered this a spin of mini-series rather than part of Nemesis, in the same way Deadlock is. Same, world, closely related but seperate. So I was going to run it seperate BUT I'm not convinced anyone thinks that other than me! So I'll wrap it into Nemesis unless folks stand up for it to be seperated.

Torque the God is definitely a defacto book of Nemesis - continuity-wise there's no other join between Torquemurder to The Two Torques.  I always consider that Deadlock story to be Nem book XI as well, showing what happened in Termight after Nem and Torque left.  Though I suppose that Wizards and Warlocks story would also have to be included by the same token, but that's alright as it's not like anybody's going to vote that as their fave book of Nem!*

* I remember being hugely disappointed by it at the time - not only because it was a significant drop in quality for my favourite 2000AD series, but also because I'd liked Crithlow's artwork since Thrud in White Dwarf.  I don't think I've seen any painted artwork from Carl I especially like, but I like the 21st century linework, as seen in the Thrud mini-series and that IDW 2000AD series.

I admire the optimism. I really do...

The admiration isn't showing.

Was Metalzoic a reprint? I thought it was published at the same time as the US version, or did I imagine that?

DC still own it, and apparently have no interest in re-releasing it or selling the rights on.

Which is a pity, since it's a great piece of work.

And both Pat Mills and Kevin O'Neill would like to see it reprinted.  Personally if I was in charge of DC, the deluxe reprint would contain both the colour and black and white versions.  Doesn't seem that difficult to get the original printings at the moment (if ebay search is to be believed).  Though all the copies seem to be in the USA at the moment, so even if they're offering free postage, HMRC may have different ideas.  Still, the corresponding progs are around the £1 mark each.

(and not to inflame the thread, but "Because I hate you" is a great moment but... not a great line..


I kind of agree, but that makes me wonder what is a great line (as in what would make a line great).  "Mind the oranges, Marlon" isn't a great line on its own, it's the cultural meaning it has to us lot that gives it greatness...

Makes sense for Supes to be bi, I think. Given the way Kryptonians reproduce by some kind of cloning (?) process, their society would have no need to enforce, encourage, or endorse strict or even prevalent heterosexuality. Some good and thoughtful stories could stem from this aspect of Superman's inherited culture clashing with his adopted one. Bravo, DC.

It's the son of Superman and Lois that's bi, not the original Clark Kent supes, so I'm not sure how much inherited Kryptonian culture he'd have, but your point's a good one.

Original supes would have inherited culture entirely from those crystal things anyway, as they weren't conscious of their surroundings when they left Krypton.

Outlaw - because it had that letter from a scientist working in Antarctica a few months later, looking forward to the rainforest that will arrive in the 2150s.  Difficult choice this one, both are great tales.

  Just over a month ago, I had just got back from a pleasant barbecue and few beers with a friend and was preparing for bed, then the boat literally exploded around me.
  That's it - life spugs but nearly dying is a humbling experience, and my friends and my family are even more amazing than I'd ever realised.

Wow!  Glad you're still with us.  I've had a near-death experience or two myself (in a similar hospital stay sort of way) - best to look on it as being lucky you're still alive than unlucky that you nearly died.

Do not go gentle into that gronk night,
Old age should burn and rave at gronk of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

You are good people I, Cosh (Pete) - I'll worry about the fact there are 12 extra thrills on your list than mine - which is exactly why I'm doing this - I see Ack-Ack Macaque already - and use this to add / cross check what I've got...
Stuff like the Batman and Predator crossovers are listed separately. Interested to see what the others are: post them up and we can argue about it.

Oh, the evergreen "One-Off" category might be one. Covers stuff which wasn't printed under a recognisable banner like "Future Shocks" and the like.

Supercovers / 7 Wonders of the Galaxy / Holiday and/or Home of the Future (can't remember which, but one of them was due to run in the weekly and ended up in a special instead).

For a lot of us who were too young to get prog one when it came out (or possess money, or read, etc) I suspect that Outlaw was our introduction to just about everything Stront except for Wulf and Johnny themselves.

So Outlaw (as much as I also like Top Dog).

I did ask a similar question some time ago - my main criteria being that they were plastic boxes so that the progs would be protected from the damp.  Unfortunately the only response I got was to buy cardboard boxes (guess the responder didn't know that cardboard isn't waterproof!)

Anyway - I've had my eye on that range so would like to see if any are recommended.

I await with interest to see how you handle the various one/two-off stories that were not run under the banner of 'Future Shocks' for whatever reason...  ;)

Oh don't at the minute I'm going with ignoring them and hoping everyone forgets they exist!

Actually I quite liked An Agent Rat Adventure.  I'd still like to have a tree house...
