There's more than enough Durham Red to complete the third Strontium Dogs volume, so wonder whether they'll be a second Durham Red volume, possibly including The Scarlet Apocrypha?

Couldn't these two more series as well as 'Inbetween Days' (Prog 2182) be the basis of a second book; bringing us right up to date? (Or am I missing something important here?!)

Inbetween Days is one of the two more series. With just the 2 series it'd be a slim volume but not unprecedently so.

There's more than enough Durham Red to complete the third Strontium Dogs volume, so wonder whether they'll be a second Durham Red volume, possibly including The Scarlet Apocrypha?

We know Strontium Dogs vol 3 is going to be the Hogan run so his Durham Red stories will presumably be in there. Is there still enough left after that? 

I guess there's a couple of full length stories from Worleyand the Scarlet Apocrypha is ~50 pages so yeah that probably is a books worth. There's a gap between Strontium Dogs 3 (116) and Mean Arena (118) it'd sit nicely there. Hmmm yeah maybe.

That sounds good. I would love to see a list of the one-offs. There was some nice art from kevin walker and chris weston on a couple of the stories in the Rogue trooper annual so I am curious if those ones made it in.

It seems crazy to reprint the Hogan stories, when they are not highly regarded and there are so many better alternatives.

Oh one persons opinion does not make it so. I love the Hogan and Hughes stories, particularly Metrobolis which was superb. Rian Hughes art was just spot on for the series. It was a real palette cleanser after the Miller years.

That's Robo-Hunter. I hope the teased samantha slade volume has the hogan / hughes stories as well. I was really disappointed when I bought the robo hunter droid files 2 and these stories were reprinted in black and white.

It would be good to see the Hogan/Hughes Robo-Hunter in the collection, however I suspect it's a very distant possibility.

Well, that’s not too shabby. My ideal book would have been War Machine + Tor Cyan, but I recall the Fr1day/Dredd strip was fairly good, am keen to re-read Glimmer Rats, have long wanted War Machine in HC, and will happily check out John Smith’s weirdness again.

Well you know, I think that's gone from a 'skip' to a 'buy' for me. Always wanted to read Glimmer Rats.

That matches my list. Pretty sure Necronauts will be in the same vol as Leviathan. And I reckon Revere will be 120 and will probably be backed with Slaughterbowl.

Damn, the last book that came into my newsagents was Mean Arena volume 1, I hope that's not going to be a miss, Smiths have been fairly good with practically no problems.
