Disappointed 'The Order' and 'Bad Company' seem not to be in the running (perhaps if there is enough clamour for their inclusion they might reconsider?) A 'Mazeworld' hardcover would be nice. As for 'Dan Dare'; the two Rebellion editions are handsome, but they forgot one story (from the 2000ad Annual 1980).

Was JD: LOTF really that bad?! I never got round to reading it, but seem to remember somewhat mixed reviews at the time.

Something that I would really like to see in this extension is a further 'Bad Company' book which would feature the stories 'First Casualties' and 'Terrorists'. This would bring us right up to date with the series and although it would be a fairly slim edition at approximately 150 pages, this is still more than some past volumes
(Slaine: Book of Scars for example).

Maybe with 'The Order' coming back in February next year for its final run we could have another Hachette book compiling all the outstanding material as part of the extension. I'm hoping!

Now confirmed and ordered by me - Webshop exclusive Strontium Dog book 2. I'm in for the long haul. Just hope that all the bonus stories are included along the way.

In the new year the price drops to £6.99 - according to Forbidden Planet website.

I really don't like these Regened Progs at all - I understand that it's all about drawing younger readers into 2000ad and somehow securing the future of the Prog (which is a most laudable aim), but I just find them so dull and uninspiring and in total contrast to the violence and craziness I enjoyed in 2000ad when I was a young child (1980s). 2000ad is supposed to be bold, gritty, anarchic and always pushing the boundaries; and long may it continue in this vein.

Has it been confirmed that 'Tomb of Terror' will definitely not be included in the 'Complete Dice Man'? It would be great if it could be.

Have just pre-ordered the slipcase edition of 'Halo Jones' (released in January). At £50 plus postage it is not cheap, but I think it is a worthwhile investment for one of 2000ad's most celebrated epics. I welcome more stories in this deluxe format.

I have to agree with Indigo Prime that this run of 'Hope' is a bit incomprehensible. I like it, in a weird sort of way, but it is baffling. The first two trade paperbacks were much more accessible.

Are the two IDW stories just reprints from before? I have them both in collected form and remember from reading a long time ago that 'Year One' was pretty good and 'Mega-City 2' not so great.

Slight confusion over 'Feral and Foe': the 2000ad website states there will be a standard hardcover available in January, but when you click the links only a paperback is shown. I would really like a hardcover for this but have serious doubts over whether one will be forthcoming. Can anyone clarify?

Do we know if there will be a limited Webshop edition for this as there was for the first Starlord one?

My one wish is all of the 2012 movie Dredd stuff in 1 book. It would definitely be one of the larger books at 260-ish pages, especially if Trinity is collected, but it would be nice to have all those in one chunky volume.

Tomontherun - If you are reading this, could you say where the 'Trinity' story you mention first appeared? On reading your post I looked back at all my movie Dredd stuff and couldn't place it.

If the big 180 news is correct, could we possibly have another 'The Order' book completing what has been published? Do the page numbers add up for another volume?
