Those covers are lovely.

So, SD is 8 volumes?  Thought it was 10 - or was I dreaming?
Seven numbered, with the last of those due soon including Final Solution, and three modern volumes.

Finished the latest two issues. ABC was pretty great although I question the need for the double page splash artwork that I assume was part of the previous collection but not in the prog. Just one more in this series. Shame we aren’t getting the follow ups too.
On Rogue, I liked the different locations though the crabs were clearly xenomorph knockoffs. And it looks like the final rogue will skip The Hit?

The order of the books as shelved seems way off in their images too. It doesn’t start with ...Gaul.

Oh my god they have done it again. I honestly thought there was no other series I would buy but here it is. Think I’m gonna sign up to the trial and hope for some more free books.
Not entirely sure how many Asterix books there are. The size of the books might be a turnoff, if too small.
Could also do Tintin, again limited by no of books.
A really interesting one would be Humanoids.

Your namesake Robin Etherington has a Kickstarter for the print version of his web series How To Think When You Write.

You can at least check out the content online before pledging. http://theetheringtonbrothers.blogspot.com/2018/12/the-full-set-of-robins-first-75-seventy.html?m=1

Wow love the look of that. Can’t make the blasted website work for a preorder from phone though. Must remember to do Monday.

Having totally forgotten to include my postal address in a recent email that saw print in Input I finally thought to send it through and today received a copy of TUC #42 (Nemesis v4).
Since I have this already, is there anyone on the forum who would like it for postage £3?

It feels very different to how it was prior to the 2000 AD collection beginning. Most JDMC books were in stock or came back in, they certainly didn’t go straight from “coming soon” to “out of stock”. And also, they still seem able to supply replacements to subbers without too much hassle. It’s like they’ve just decided to cut back the eshop part of it.

With the majority of the prog excellent, the new art on Defoe has my squirming and not in a good way. The use of blurs really is a turn off for me. The last page is much better for the simpler approach. Overall it reminds me of the arrival of Simon Harrison to SD. I expect some will be big fans, not least Uncle Pat himself who often works with artists who use digital effects in their linework. Hopefully it will settle in as the run goes on. Sorry.

…so would the remaining vols for Slaine be: one more …Invasions, one book covering Wanderer & Scars, and finishing off with Brutania x2?

From the latest Previews, following volume "7" the Slaine books are giving up that numbered structure: issue 61 is Slaine Book Of Invasions Vol 1, much like ABC Warriors' The Volgon War Vol 1.

Well, the FB page followed through on their offer and sent me another copy of #54. This one matches on the spine so I'm happy, though it has a ding on the spine's base. They give, they take away.
If anyone wants the other opened, slightly misaligned copy let me know?

Any new writers or artists that have been break out stars since I've been away?
After a quick check on dates and I'll vote for Tiernan Trevellian as new and awesome. Especially Absalom and his recent run on Fiends Of The Eastern Front.
