Sometimes hope is equals to 6 years
Old age is the Lord’s way of telling us to step aside for something new. Death’s in case we didn’t take the hint.

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

I remember an Earthlet wrote in complaining of Tharg's usual empty promise of 'in the new year' - Rogue Trooper, in this case. Tharg pointed out that it was a mere spelling mistake, and it was meant to say 'in his new gear'.  The cheeky green wanker.

There was a time in 2000AD's history when readers thought there wasn't enough Rogue Trooper?!

In the Hachette collection, Davis and Edginton say they'd be quite up for doing more Ampney, and both agree it didn't really end in a satisfying way. But promises were not made!
Frankly its lower on my wishlist than Thistlebone, Helium and Brass Sun. But, givewn the inter-dimensional aspect to Ampney Crucis, I can well imagine the character (and his trusty batman) showing up in any given Edg-verse series. I suppose if Stickleback ever ends up digging tunnels into a Prep school he might meet a young Crucis snaffling pies while avoiding a well-earned caning.

Tbf, we can't exactly complain that more Thistlebone hasn't yet shown up despite being promised.

Do what I want, mate.

Sorry, I mean yeah, you're right, and it's the perfect time of year for this type of folk horror.

Rogue Trooper, prog 1022, 1996.

Obviously not the end of Rogue Trooper the strip, or the Rogueverse at large, but the last that we've seen to date of Fr1day and Venus Bluegenes.

Still an improvement upon what they looked like as they were drawn into the Black Hole.  :D
