Firekind is one of the top 5 Thrills of all time. Mean Team isn't even the best Belardinelli strip with a talking cat.

How had I not heard of these afore?

Galaxie 500 - Peel Session 1989
Great band. The first thing I ever bought on eBay was a CD-R of their other Peel session as it was the only way I could get a copy of their half-remembered Sex Pistols cover.

Massively regret not being arsed to get the train through to Edinburgh to see them on what turned out to be their last ever tour. Have since seen Dean do a nostalgia-heavy set but it's not quite the same without the rest of them.

I've enjoyed these so much, I'm not sure why they never reached a larger audience.
One thing I really like is that there's no 'do you have item x, if not game over' moment. Having certain items or skills makes your life a lot easier, and you can definitely box yourself into a point where a lack
Really enjoyed your write-up of these Way of the Tiger books. They were always head and shoulders above any other series I played so I'm also a bit surprised at their lack of renown. The sense of progression and the world around you were so good. The only other series I remember trying to do this was Lone Wolf and that was a lot less complete. Read somewhere (potentially earlier in this thread) that the whole setting of Orb was one they'd developed over a few years of D&Ding which was why it worked so well. On the other hand, it could be that the idea of an ongoing series is what put people off picking up a random one like you could with FF.

I really liked the same authors' sci-fi series, but that seems more of a niche thing. Think it was called Falcon?

Would the Revere and The Dead volume be worth picking up? I am totally unfamiliar with both strips and need someone to recommend or otherwise.
Two of the best strips ever to appear in the Prog. Either one would be worth the money. Both together is unbeatable value.

I'm VERY keen to know what what make a person "need" to get their hands on the complete series of Moonrunners!
I assume it's some sort of wiki or comics database project. This user pops up every six months or so asking for  information about a random strip and then disappears again.

I’m not sure we ever had one.
We did, but it’s only available in some sub-forums.

Nintendo in particular come across as dinosaurs in this regard, especially in their recent actions in suddenly deciding their priority is to shut down sites hosting NES roms, as if that horse hadn't already bolted over twenty-five years ago.
Maybe, but they're the ones still selling boatloads of Mario Kart 8 and a remake of a thirty year old Zelda game at full price so they probably don't really care how they come across.
