What size are they damnit!

They were a similar size to the Ultimate/Mega Collection books.

Yesterday, I saw Issue 3 of this in WHSmith - I guess that must mean I'm in the test area:

Asterix: The Ultimate Collection

"Ultimate Collection", now where have I heard that before?

Ooof, this thread is not what I thought it was going to be.

If they're considering another collection, this one must be selling well enough to make an extension a very real possibility.

It'd be good to get a volume of Absalom, picking up where the Caballistics, Inc volumes leave off. One volume would probably be big enough to collect the lot and still have space for the recent Caballistics, Inc conclusion and the upcoming Absalom finale.

I'm hoping that next year we'll finally get some proper Sinister Dexter collections to celebrate the 25th anniversary.

If you want a taster, the first two episodes were made available as part of the promo for The Vigilant.

Stumbled across this fun interview with Rufus Dayglo in which he reveals he's working on a new series for the Galaxy's Greatest.

Jimmy Broxton is the new artist on Storm Warning.

Happy to see more Lillian and Broxton is a great choice... but hadn't it previously been announced that Tom Foster was returning? Maybe I'm misremembering. (I guess it could be a Nemesis the Warlock-esque situation, where Broxton is doing Book 2 whilst Foster is working on Book 3?)

What age bracket would be best to show the brutality of Nu earth I’d prefer an 18 but to pick up a new audience it might have to be a 15 or possibly a 12A! I don’t think they need to use today’s profanities but could easily add in the strips terminology “synth out” etc. Which should help the rating be lower.
Looking at the standard of violence on Deadpool they could still get away with a lot in a 15.

I think 12A or 15 would be for the best. If you make an 18 film, you're basically losing the teen market straight off the bat. Imagine what the box office for Dredd could have been if it were a 15...

I also think that Rogue Trooper would really struggle to get an 18 classification anyway because most of the BBFC's guidelines are based on context. The future war setting is so fantastical that the audience engages with the movie to a greater degree as a piece of fiction; whereas a modern-day urban setting gives movies a greater sense of reality, so violence and brutality feel more visceral and can incur a higher classification even for similar scenes. Duncan would have to really go out of his way to make an 18 version of Rogue (constant gore, brutal violence and strong swearing) and I'm not sure that would really add anything to the movie - best to stick to a 12A or a 15.

Couple of interesting tweets from Duncan...

I shall be teasing a work announcement tomorrow that I can’t quite believe I am able to say.  Sometimes when life throws you lemons, it’s because it knows you’ve got fish & chips coming!

A little nervous about this, but hell, nervous is where the fun is!
I’m going to be making a comic book movie next!  A pretty special one.
That’s the initial tease...

Second tease to come in a few days!
