Well, there's still a week and a bit to go before the next book's out, so I wouldn't expect anything before then. The next three are up for pre-order on FP, but just placeholder covers with no details so far.

Given the secrecy, it must be:

- Dry Run
- Wireheads, reprinted twice within the same book
- Mark Millar’s Robo-Hunter

Against my better judgement, picked this up today

I think the biggest mmisstep is the Gronk, though Garth seems to think that was the only good thing about this run, which might be partially why his stuff never sdid stick.

My main take is that it would have made more sense for Feral's dad to be Malak Brood, not that either makes much sense

Be interested in the Hogan book (hopefully opening with the Ridgeway drawn flashback story for completions sake)

Well I finally got round to reading Mean Arena, not bad, but very much a product of it's time I think.  As sports strips go, I think I preferred Harlem Heroes which is equally dated but still fun, while Inferno I feel had the hint that the team had been told to finish it within a certain amount of time, hence the quick ending.

Just read The Small House collection for the first time. I fairly motored through that in a couple of days. What a good series of stories. Apart from the weird alien invasion bit.

Cover states Gibbons/Rennie/Simpson/Weston/Harrison as the primary contributors. So that suggests War Machine and probably Glimmer Rats (Rennie/Harrison). Together, that’s about 130 pages of strip, leaving 50–100, depending on how chunky the volume will be.

Dunno about where Weston sits in war comics. He did a few Rogue one-offs for yearbooks/annuals, and maybe Scavenger of Souls (48 pages) will be in there.

Hoping Weston means we're getting the John Smith penned annual stories - I've heard good things about those.
