No chance I wasn’t going to order this

But like others have said, I’ll be hoping for more consistent repro, especially seeing as the price is a tenner higher than  vol 1 and 2 were

Hope they include the extra Deadlock material that was contained in the Hachette Partworks editions.

Quote from: 2000AD-Shop
Stories include:
The World of Nemesis (Book 3)
Deadlock
The Tomb of Torquemada
Tubular Hells

Hopefully it does include Deadlock, but I'd venture to suggest that contents list is badly wrong! Book 3? No Hicklenton? No Hammer of Warlocks? No Book X...?

Yep - looks like they updated the listing not long after I copied and pasted that - IndigoPrime has posted what it shows now.

I've had a look and can't see anything obvious. Is there a misprint or pages out of order or something?

Ah just seen the other thread. Fortunately mine's in English.

Just received mine - all in English and all reprint.  By which I mean even the creator credits are reprint from some other previous editions - which means it speaks of the creators in the present tense from some pint about fifteen years ago.  Clint Langley is at the start of experimenting with photo art, but more importantly John Hicklenton is also in the present tense.  Everything else being reprint is one thing, but they should have updated the bios.  The only other thing that jumped out was the cover of the Winter Special wasn't the highest quality reproduction, but everything else looks pretty good.  Oh, and because it's easy to spot things which aren't quite right than it is to enumerate all the good bits - why was the cover in blue on black when the previous two editions were in metallic covers?  Silver, gold and bronze would have worked better.  Anyway, a nice completed addition to my bookshelf now.

p.s. the other thread mentioned above (which I hadn't seen until I looked for it).

It's another lovely volume. These three books have to be the most complete version of Nemesis that exists (if not definitive?)

A minor annoyance that stories like Bride of the Warlock are printed out of sequence (again!), but that's almost made up for the same thing happening to Tubular Hells - so that you can pretend things finished for Nemesis and Torque with Book X!

Odd that the Hachette run got the running order right but this book didn’t. Does the French volume duplicate the old Rebellion phone books?

I suppose, broadly speaking, they do - but the Heresy volumes include quite a bit more than the phonebooks, particularly this final volume (Deadlock, Tubular Hells, Tomb of Torquemada...)
