Quite looking forwards to this entering it's 2nd round. This first round has had so many obscurities that there's rarely been a draw where I've read both stories. Indeed there have been plenty where I've read neither (and from the comments I think it sounds like that may be for the best).

Saphir will be replacing The Out. The original was a 3riller running in prog 2197-2199. So it will be most likely be another 3riller rather than a full series.

Was that the one with Rees Mogg in it?  Seem to remember it was quite good as 3rillers go.

While I get why they wanted to highlight the Ben Wheatley quote it does rather spoil the space in that image. Still gonna buy one. Which more series got the HC treatment like this.

It's been a hell of a run, long may it continue.

This got asked on FB:

2000 AD: The Ultimate Collection

The cover artwork for Issue 52 and Issue 111 is by Carlos Ezquerra and the Editor made a conscious decision to use the same artwork for both issues. This was due to there being limited alternatives by the artist and as Ezquerra's art appears exclusively throughout Issue 111, the Editor wanted the cover to be his work as well.
We hope you understand and that this will not detract from your enjoyment of both issues.

Which doesn't really add up to me - I struggle to believe there weren't alternative choices of Ezquerra Stront art but there we go.

My guess for the next 2 Strontium Dogs books is something like:

Strontium Dogs Vol 2: Garth Ennis  (181)
Monsters (60)
Return Of The Gronk (48)
How The Gronk Got His Heartses (12)
The Darkest Star (61)

Strontium Dogs Vol 3: Peter Hogan (213)
Crossroads (18)
Mirrors (18)
The Alphabet Man (18)
High Moon (48)
The Mutant Sleeps Tonight (6)
Deals (24)
Hate & War (43)
Night Of The Hunters (38)

Yep mine just arrived to.  Reading the intro to Strontium Dogs I note:

...Gothlord, an encounter that will have ramifications for Red in the stories that follow in the next couple of volumes
(emphasis mine)

...in the next book Ennis will join forces with Steve Pugh and Nigel Dobbyn...

Sounds like 3 books of Strontium Dogs/Durham Red. Next one will be the Ennis stuff from the 90s. I guess the 3rd will be the Peter Hogan run. Which stories follow on from Island of the Damned?

  • The Out
  • Thistlebone
  • Proteus Vex

Feral and Foe, Diaboliks and Scarlet Traces were all close to making the list. Slaine looked beautiful but lacked substance.

The last I haven't purchased but only because I want to know if we're getting more of Deadworld in the Hachette collection before spending my £s.

Hachette have it at 200 pages. It’s volume 112!

Well I think we can safely deduce we're getting 2 vols of ABC Warriros not 3 then. Volume 114 is the first Strontium Dogs volume and (so far) they've kept things together within each extension. I think it's a safe bet that 113 will be Warriors: Return To Ro-Busters and 115 will be Strontium Dogs vol 2.

200 pages seems pretty much spot on for Return To Earth and Return To Mars. Do the trade versions of the Return stories have extra pages like some of the other Langley stuff from this era (Volgan War, Book Of Invasions)?

Will be interesting to see what we get in volume 2. Return to Robusters clearly but how much Ro-busters are they going to include. The spine preview had Charlie on it so I guess Terra-Meks is definite. Rise and Fall is fairly long, if we get that I suspect we won't get Fallout. Given the choice I'd prefer Fallout and Terra-Meks; I think it's more likely we'll get Rise and Fall and Terra-Meks.

Only comic related thing was Reinhard Kleist's graphic novel about Nick Cave, Mercy On Me.
