And me too.

Can the first person to actually see it please let us know what the contents are in general?

Looks like Case Files 01 is getting a re-release later this year.

I like the cover!

Personally I object to St George being our patron saint.
The reason being that "he " probably didn't exist... and even if he did .., he has absolutly no connection to England. I say that if your still going to have a patron stain then they should at least meet the qualifications of
1/ existing.
2/ a strong connection to the country who has adpoted him/her.

That isn't too much to ask, is it?

I wonder what you must think of that heraldic shield you have, the one held up by a lion and a unicorn!

Hu's a Judge?

Yes, and not only does she have the shortest name in the Justice department, but she's also notable for being one of the few Judges with offspring (her son, Furst) allowed to remain in the job.  She's usually partnered with a similar offender, Judge Eiidohno.

You've probably heard the talk around Justice Central about "Hu's son Furst and Eiidohno's son Sekund."

I'll get my coat.

Cheers for the heads up, have just ordered a copy.

You're welcome.  I've just got an e-mail saying the new Strontium Dog title is shipping too, if that info is of use to you.

I really like the '2050 Aeroball Almanac' cover they've used for the draft cover of Harlem Heroes.  I hope it makes the cut.

Oh, for an update at the 2000ADbooks site.

Amerika has slipped countless times.  I hold out little hope of anything actually arriving until it appears in my Thril-Merchant.

I've just received a dispatch notice on this title.

Amazon UK now listing:

"Leviathan" by Ian Edington and "Disraeli" (Paperback - 15 Jun 2010) £13.99

"ABC Warriors (Volgan War)" by Pat Mills and Clint Langley (Hardcover - 15 Sep 2010)£13.99

I hope Steve Guttenberg gets a part.

Oh yeah, and Michael Winslow as Giant.

Good stuff Grant, but I've always wondered what you crazy Yankees had instead of Spectrums.

C64 of course! (Though didn't some of the Spectrum product get released as Timex?)

Three brilliant ideas there Dash, particularly 2 & 3, I'd love to see them next year! Just think, you could have a whole year to work on them...

Well, I don't know if my artistic abilities would live up to a years worth of anticipation, but at least I may learn how to spell 'frankincense' by then! (More embarassingly, I was going to call no.3 "The Jerusalem Job", forgetting for a moment that it has to be in Bethlehem!  :-[  "The Judean Job" doesn't have quite the same ring to it).

Brilliant work, everyone!

I had a few ideas for the calendar but never got the chance to do anything with them:

1. A typical Fleetway/IPC comic Christmas street scene, with a whole lot of 2000AD characters sitting around a big table with bottles of pop with bent straws in them, wobbly jellies etc, done in a Leo Baxendale sort of style.

2. A three panel Kingdom strip; the first two panels show close ups of Gene hacking & slashing, the last revealling he is actually 'helping' Leezee unwrap her Christmas presents (the presents are totally destroyed).  Needs some way to work in a line like "Your mouth is full of mince pie."

3. An instalment of a Strontium Dog strip.  The recap reveals Johnny & Wulf have gone back in time to stop Trritterax the Time Changer (or something).  Wulf scans the night sky with binnoculars, we see a hazy dark circle. "By the Gott, Johnny!  He has managed to black out the Starlight beacon!  Without an intense light at low level those people on the ground will never find their way here!"  Alpha fires an electro flare, cut to long shot where we see three guys on camels pointing at the bright 'star'.  Alpha checks in with McNulty on the radio.  McNulty is guarding someone, but we don't see who.  Alpha asks if there have been any disturbances.  McNulty answers only a kid with a drum who threatened to wake the bairn, "so I shoved the drum up his bum."  Meanwhile, the star has allowed the three wise men to find the stable.  We see their backs as they enter, revealing a peaceful nativity scene (with McNulty in the corner).  Throwing off their robes the three wise men are revealed to be the three Stix brothers.  "Next prog: Gold, Frankinsense and Murder".

I had another idea to do with McNulty's Christmas diary ('Strontium Blogs'), but it's gone now. 

Happy New Year, everybody!

Most impressive but his fingers need to be able to curl round that pistol grip a wee bit more or it'll fall out of his hand ;)

Yes, and I can see where Digby's shower rose got to.

Amazon UK now have a thumbnail up of the draft cover for Stainless Steel Rat, but annoyingly when you click on it you are taken to a copy of the novel.

Click here

This is standard Amazon practice, and as usual they have also pulled in a load of 'reviews' in the process.

Preliminary covers for Rogue Trooper 2 and Al's Baby now up at Amazon UK:

Rogue Trooper 2

No surprises here

I really need to see volume 3 of the V.C.s in there. C'mon Tharg, it's the last volume. Just one tiny little volume to complete the series. Pleeeeeease!

There's a tiny advert for the third volume (VCs: Old Soldiers) on the inside back cover of the second volume (VCs: Back in Action).  Hmm, just checked it out and it says it's due on 15th December 2009!  Perhaps it's slipped and will fill one of those May or June slots Michael mentioned.
