I have lost count of how many versions of that story I own. Here are detailed formal reviews of the two last editions: http://myabsolutecollection.blogspot.com/2016/08/judge-dredd-cursed-earth-uncensored.html

Notice that the two missing covers (#74 and #82) from the HC edition have been reinstalled in the SC version.

Other Reviews / Complete Case Files 01 Special Edition French Version
« on: 12 November, 2016, 10:39:02 PM »
I have bought yesterday the French adaptation of the 10th anniversary edition of CCF #1, published by Delirium, and this is a huge book!
It includes a fully detailed summary, and an exclusive 7 pages introduction written by Pat Mills (a completely revised version of his Wordpress blog posts on the origin of Dredd), featuring the Manning strip that has inspired Wagner & Mills to create the character (I think we can thank Joe Soap for this one).

Other Reviews / Ro-Busters Nuts and Bolts Volume 2

Another very nice reprint from Rebellion, including Pat Mills and Kevin O'Neill Inside Story strip from prog 144 (not included in the 2008 complete Ro-Busters).

I was not able to source these two illustrations (I suspect the second one to originate from an annual):

Classifieds / Floppy/GN clear out from France
« on: 08 August, 2015, 01:44:17 PM »
In case someone oversea is interesting in my listing (lot of Floppies from the 90s + several collected editions), shipping to UK is around 8£ for up to 2 kg (through Mondial Relay). Alternatively, I will be in London Friday and Saturday 25/26th September.

They are listed on a website LeBonCoin.fr (which is the equivalent of Craiglist in the USA I think) with some pictures. These days 1€ corresponds to £0.71, hence £1 = 1.5€. Bargains for multiple purchase of course.
Corresponding links are here: http://myabsolutecollection.blogspot.fr/p/what-i-am-selling.html

I will keep the list updated there : http://myabsolutecollection.blogspot.fr/2015/08/comics-vo-vendre-liste-mise-jour.html

Other Reviews / ABC Warriors Mek Files Vol 02

Here is a factual detailed description of this second volume. The stories inside were my first encounter with the ABC Warriors (translated in French the late eighties by Zenda editions), and it was a blast (funny, vicious, entertaining)!

It's now online since a few hours, Pat Mills has his own web site here http://millsverse.com/home/4585190524

I have received my copy yesterday and have detailed the content here: http://www.thearchdeviant.org/2014/07/abc-warriors-volgan-war-volume-4-sc.html

It collects material from 2000 AD #1666 (not 1668) to 1677.

I have the first print of the 2010 HC version and I wonder why in my copy covers from 2000 AD #1555 and 1559 are missing.

Hi, in the credits page of my softcover copy of Nemesis The Warlock Book One (first edition 1983) there is mention of an hardcover version of this book with its ISBN. Does this GN has really been published in HC?
Thanks in advance for a response

Books & Comics / Wika by Olivier Ledroit (Requiem Vampire Knight)
« on: 22 May, 2014, 05:13:10 PM »
If anyone's interested here, French awesome artist Olivier Ledroit has just launched his new French series Wika with author Thomas Day, publisehd by Glénat and scheduled for 4 volumes (64 pages each). It is aiming to target less adult oriented audience than Requiem (in other worlds it is less violent, but it's nonetheless unique stuff). The first edition features graphic notes from Olivier. You can have sneak peaks of the art painted pages here http://theevilsnest.com/sources/accueil.php (his work for Wika is currently the center of an exhibit in Paris at Galerie Glénat).
As of Requiem he has already finished the firts 6 pages of volume 12 (out of 13).

After IDW and Graphitti Designs announcement last month (http://www.graphittidesigns.com/ follow the Gallery Editions link), Dark Horse enters the market with a first book (Simonson/Miller's Robocop vs Terminator) schedulled for early July http://www.darkhorse.com/Books/24-423/RoboCop-vs-the-Terminator-Gallery-Edition-HC. It is available to preorder at FP.co.uk (around 64£).
