Tsk, tsk! You're missing the Rebellion omnibus edition from 2007. In its original-and-best black and white form! As much as I like the new coloured version I think it's a shame that it is no longer available in B&W.

Speaking of Ennis, has anyone read Sara? It's brilliant.


If anyone is looking for an excuse to get themselves another Christmas present, then I can definitely recommend the Deluxe edition of Sara. It's absolutely fab! Beautifully bound with a die cut cover, edge painted pages and an Obi strip on the rear cover, it really does look deluxe!

Yeah, I've had that almost every time I order anything through the shop. It has been like that for months, maybe years. The problem normally resolves itself by repeatedly re-submitting the same payment order, with the same card, until it works! If you use a two step verification thingy, you can see when it has worked as the order value suddenly appears and you get a confirmation. Persistence is the required.

If you are looking for the missing page, it is actually the first page of part 9 (not 10) in Prog 2259 p.21.

That's unfortunate but, as Matt says, luckily not that much of a problem. Shame they couldn't afford someone to do a simple page count before press...

If they did Scarlet Traces *and* fixed the screw-up in the latest trade (IIRC, a missing page), I’d buy that for sure and finally offload my Dark Horse collections.
Hmm, interesting. What missing page is this? Haven't read the latest volume yet and I haven't heard about this error either.

F**k me. When was that book jacket designed? 1986?

Other than maybe 1 day, I don't think there has been a delay. I pre-ordered months ago elsewhere and was told 22 Nov. Maybe FP was given an early indication that they never updated.

Bad news concerning 'Strontium Dog: The 2000ad years vol.1' - Amazon has this listed on their website as comprising 192 pages; ...
Isn't the clue kinda in the name? If it's only 192 pages and it's called Volume 1, then I would expect there to be a Volume 2 at some point!

I really hope you have a good back-up of all of your hard work. Maybe 2000ad.com could mirror it..?

I would definitely recommend Black Science from Image. It is a monstrous epic though and the hardbacks are now oop, so it'll require you collecting all 9 of the tpb to finish the story.
If you want something shorter to dip into try Nameless also from Image - it'll blow your mind ;)

Yeah baby! This thing is enormous. It's glorious and fantastic but where the hell do I put it? It's never gonna' fit in my shelves.
If you are still waiting for this in the UK you may want to give Rebellion a poke as I've just picked my copy up from Berlin.

Yup, same here - outside of the UK - my copy hasn't shipped yet either.

Thanks for the feedback, really glad you enjoyed the book - sadly, sales on the Covers Uncovered book have been very poor and so it's not something we'll be repeating this year, sorry.
Doesn't surprise me really. I enjoyed it, but it is a bit thin on content isn't it? It is basically just a collection of cover prints - where's the "uncovered" bit? There wasn't enough background or sketches showing the development of the art for me. I was expecting way more info from the artists showing or explaining their drawing processes. Only a couple of them really did this in any detail. Sales may not have been helped by the fact that the 2000AD logo was also half covered and quite small.

That really is an excellent article. I had wondered how many collectors had been contacted and how the scans were arranged. Monumental bit of planning to get as much of his work together - makes me pine for my copy!
I just hope the world doesn't end before it gets released, seems ever so slightly unimportant in light of today's news.
