I dunno. I re-read Nemesis recently and the entire strip undermines itself plenty before that point. It all started to go wrong for me around book 7, despite the great art. X was a mess. Hard to know what Tubular Hells was going for, bar, possibly Mills realising how abhorrent the original ending was to Seth and rectifying that.

The essays in the Hachette volumes are a goldmine of titbits!

For anyone who didn't have the first two, there won't be a chance to buy the set when this one comes out. For completists only. (confirmed on twitter)

Smith doesn't have to print everything Mills submits.

Or alternatively he could do what Mills did all the time when he was editor, and rewrite the script himself.

Thistlebone Book Two - Poisoned Roots Hardback 12 May 2022

Britain, 2020. It's been over a year since journalist Seema Chaudry accompanied cult survivor Avril Easton back to the village of Harrowvale, the site of her terryifying experiences at the hands of Jasper Hillman's THISTLEBONE worshippers, a crazed occult group that believed in an ancient woodland deity. Intended as a cathartic experience, both women were changed forever by what they were confronted with. In the process of researching for a book on the Thistlebone legend, Seema believes much of it centres around one man - Malcolm Kinniburgh
