Was the unravelled mystery of 1899 worth the 8 episode investment?

Maybe for those who were punching air after watching the final episode of Lost.

I couldn't even make it to the end of Episode 2!

Anyway, I haven't posted here for a couple of weeks and that's because I still cannot beat Masks of Mayhem.

I've fallen off the wagon a bit recently - I may have treated myself to a Nintendo Switch, which it's fair to say has been hogging most of my free time!

I don't have MoM, but I have got the next two book playthroughs in the bag for when we reach them - and having just done a little count, I've pleasantly surprised to find I've now played exactly half of the FF/Sorcery books that I own!

Other comments mean Outlaw won't be included... nor will Big Dave, Maniac 5, Really & Truly, Bad Company or The Order.

Er... good? Bit of a shame not to get a volume to round out The Order, but is anyone really gagging for those others* to stink up the collection?

*Obviously Bad Company in its prime is amazing, but we've already had the good stuff included.

Anyone an expert on the newspaper-strip-reprinting 'Zoo comic' from, probably, the 1990s? I'd love to confirm the year of publication and fill in some gaps in my covers gallery. Thanks! 


A quick google says issue 1 came out in 1989, which would fit - those images do jolt a long-buried hint of a memory, and the very early 90s seems about right for when I'd have been reading this.

Kingdom 7-9 (126)

There's only another two books of Kingdom, not three.

Not so much a question to Edie as anyone on here - when Dante toasts 'what might have been' with Jocasta, who is it he is thinking of? Is that a young Jocasta?

Surely it's Jena?

The board isn't as populous as it was in the early days of the advent calendar, sadly.  Not to worry though, I'll appreciate anything that anyone has to offer, and if it doesn't fill up quickly I'll throw in a second entry.

We've lost a lot of Advent stalwarts over the past 5/6 years - Buttonman and Pete Wells long since drifted away to that new-fangled social media, Commando Forces and others into self-imposed board exile, Bolt sadly no longer with us...

It's been a long time since I contributed, and with a disabled toddler on my hands this is unlikely to be the year I dive back in!

Isn't it, though? Be interesting to see what's in this one - hopefully the Sentenoid story makes the cut.

Judge Dredd: Regicide

Well, this one snuck up quietly! I wasn't hugely enamoured by (what I read of) the Red Queen/Orlok stories on the whole, but I have to say I am mighty tempted by the Lynch-tastic exclusive hardback...

If they are making enough money from the exercise then extending by including lawman of the future and DC Dredd etc is not impossible ...
We have Starlord and Tornado strips in the collection already...

But they're been included specifically to complete a run of stories which concluded in Tooth (Ro-Busters and Blackhawk). I can't see them including material in the UC which has only ever run in a completely seperate title.

Thank you for a great thread so far!

Thirded! (Fourthed?)

Always a great read.

Wonder if they will do an environmental one with trash and I think was dead meat with inspector ram

Um... I'm going to say 'No'.

Although you could round it out with Mother Earth, for a truly dire expierience.

The way I remember it, the Next Progs of the eighties were wonderfully inventive – sometimes not so much teasers as almost a part of the story. I’d forgotten Zenith until you mentioned it, but there are a few that have always stuck in my memory.

Strontium Dog often excelled on that score, with "No snecks, please, we're brutish" being a particular highlight…

Great Sneckspectations another, and I'm fond of 'For Whom the Bill Tells' leading to an episode where Johnny is outed by a mutant duck!
