It looks increasingly like 'Stickleback' and 'The Order' will not get second books. Much to my chagrin.

the original books were literally complete at the time there was no chance of getting a second book of them

Not Stickleback - like Kingdom, there were two books left uncollected (Stickleback is now three).

Giving it the perfect page count for another volume.

Interesting to note that even Tharg doesn't know who A Ridgeway, credited with writing the last runs of Mean Arena, is - anyone on here got any ideas?

Wondering if one volume will be enough to bring us right up to date with Fall Of Deadworld. Think it should just about squeeze into the page count. Really hope we do get all the Visions of Deadworld, those were some of my favourite strips last year.

I got around to reading Mean Arena book 2.

While it's readable, I feel it's very much a product of its time.  It was kinda obvious who the last two members of the syndicate were, especially one of them when you saw silouhettes. The ending was kinda unsatisying and rather abrupt.

My copies arrived today. Deadworld includes everything except the most recent FoD and Visions stories, Jessica and Transpolar.

So who’s the blue dog faced character and the lady with a quilted jacket?

Anyone know if either of those in the 3rd Deadworld HC?
I'm hoping I'll be able to continue with book 4 without missing too much.

The 3 hardcovers contain everything published in the prog so far.

Damn so that'll end up being ~18 pages of the strip I'll end up missing.That's annoying. Not sure I care enough to spend £20 to fill the gap though. I've got the digital progs if I want to reread them.
