Okay, so quick show of hands, how many of us are able to resist the latest sumptuous hardback reprint of the first 4 Nemesis books?

Tempting, even though I already own the Hachette volume. ARGH. Why do you do this to me, Tharg?

… and bought... along with the limited edition Dr. Mesmer Hardback.

I was supposed to be saving money...

… but the rest can't come too soon.

What with the problems that the Ultimate Collection has had and some of the ropey repro on the B&W stuff in the Dredd collection my decision not to bother with Hachette. 

Of course I'm going to go and find that record player of mine that keeps sticking:  more limited edition hardbacks please Rebellion.  Stront would be very high on my list ...

Will there be a series of these Nemesis books or is this just a one off of the first few stories?

As directed by Mr S Green earlier, I discovered Tharg said – as ever – it depends on how many people open their wallets.

Accordingly 2000 Shop page this is the first volume: "Developed in conjunction with 2000 AD’s French publisher Delirium, there are only 250 English language copies of this limited edition English-language hardcover edition of the first volume of The Complete Nemesis the Warlock, written by Pat Mills with art by Kevin O’Neill, Jesus Redondo, and Bryan Talbot."

The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.

Ordered. Pefect timing! Had a job bring in a lot more cash than expected, and just did a Nemesis re-read and really felt the need for a better copy than my Casefiles. Chance of colour for the Book III centrespreads?

I was literally only thinking why have they not done Nemesis in a Mek Files format and what do you know? Well I've pulled the trigger. There'll be a Nemesis Vol. 1 paperback for sale soon!

COMPLETELY agree on the Strontium Dog Idea. That stunning Carlos art in a bigger format? Yes please.

It is – except for this limited 250-book run in English.

Yeah so did I - I'm kinda hoping this one sells out quickly to remove the temptation!

That was quick! Really glad I got mine so. Hope this uptake means they’ll give the same treatment to the other two volumes. I’m guessing it depends if French sales also? If they do them it means that we might get the prog 2000 story and they might also move the Chris Weston story to the right place in the volume rather than at the back.

I’d be crazy to wish for the Deadlock solo story in there too but it is a kind of epilogue to book x and wouldn’t it be nice to see that Henry Flint art in a big format?
