I still have a premium sub. There's no point in continuing that is there? Not going to get any further goodies. Assume I can cancel that and have normal sub post-issue 80

Still not had any notification that my sub is going to continue.

Full Hardback Dante. Not opened any of them yet. Only know first half of story. Going to get a good time to enjoy this.

Incidentally really enjoying Robo Hunter Book 2

I'm glad someone did - that was my least favourite book from the entire collection.

Well I reckon I've only read about 15 books so far, but I'm pretty sure there will be worse in there. I'm only three stories in and am aware of the problematic depictions in the football story later on.

Having said that I originally read those stories in the early 90s and I always perceived them as a parody of the racial depictions in the media in the 1970s. Wonder if I will still think that on revisiting it.

Well I normally wouldn't give a monkeys about spines, but it would seem a shame to mess this up at this late stage.

Is the Future shocks book out yet.

There was a story from one of the early annuals that was a future shock about someone who bought a 'course' that increased their intelligence but not their comon sense and they ended up dead in a traffic accident.  I can't remember the name of it.  I wonder if that one is included.

Don't remember seeing it

I really didn't care for Red when she was rebooted in the prog, so I'm not looking forward to the collection with any relish at all.

Delighted to receive volumes 71 +72 (Thargs future shocks and Durham red) today.
Was just wondering how much of Duhams Red series will be collected in this part work?

Was there anything of Vector 13 worth reprinting in these collections? I don't really recall.

A compilation of 2 or 3 horror stories would be great. That or a creator themed volume with some other short self contained Edington tales.

Brings Silo and Brigand Doom back into play

Sub with Scars/Dante arrived today. Somehow, Scars is bashed up, despite the books’ cardboard sleeve. Bah.

Same for me on Saturday. Not quite sure how far in front/behind I am. Not unwrapped Book of Scars. Not sure I ever will.

Haven't opened my Dante's yet. Read the first 4(ish) books before so looking forward to finding out how things developed. Even got original Simon Fraser artwork from the first book on my wall.


235 pages of Lobster Random as well

125 Bec N kawl, but that wasn't really for me.

Was this Grey Area any good? Seemed to run for a while.

If the reboot stories aren't top-draw thrills then I'd really rather they left it at 3 books and gave us something else (especially if it's humour is going to rely on homophobic/racist tropes).
Some of the reboot is among the worst stuff 2000 AD put out during its darkest era. I would be genuinely amazed if these strips saw the light of day again. I’m not OK with some of the dodgy racial stereotypes in e.g. classic Dredd, but the Millar stuff was beyond the pale. Again, it’s a pity there was no space for the Hogan/Hughes run, which was mostly rather good. But it’s not good enough to warrant an entire book of reboot material. (And, let’s face it, the Samantha Slade stuff never went anywhere, and was piss-poor as well.)

Don't remember too much. Remember a bit of  Return to Verdus story that I seem to recall was a bit of a romp, although at the time I didn't appreciate what had happened to Cutie.



But the artistry was beautiful. That's the main draw for me.



The Williams stuff was more workmanlike. And the story where there were multiple Sams was crap.
