Is the rejuve mention in Dredd a reference to the full-body job he has in the Megazine a little while back? Is it the same facility?

I don't know whether it makes a difference, but I didn't have a payment taken in Feb - or rather I 'back-ordered' in Feb to try to get ahead (which didn't work).

Well having received 39 & 40 last week & with issue 41 not out yet (although due out tomorrow) I guess that's most people basically brought unexpectedly up to date, even if it's only for a day or two?

I'd fallen behind like a lot of people, with the payment for 35-36 being taken on 18 Jan and not arriving until 01 February. I took a chance and repeated an old trick, back-ordering 37-38 on 07 February and they arrived on the 15th. Payment for 39-40 was then taken on 01 March and they arrived on the 11th. So I've caught up by a couple of weeks, but judging by the discussion here I wonder whether that would have happened anyway... and I'm still likely to be a month behind the shops by the time I get 41-42.

Collected Robo Hunter volume 3 from my local Thrill-merchant this morning. To my surprise there was a copy of The Horned God attached. An enclosed note says there was a small misprint on the spine which this copy corrects. This happened before with one of the Nemesis volumes, didn't it? I'm not sure if I would have noticed or been too bothered if I had, but there it is.

Interesting. Mine is definitely off compared to Slaine vol.3.

Anyone else's copy of the latest Dante pretty blurry in the first 3rd of the book?

I thought the war part of the story felt rushed, as is somewhat explained in the essay. The following stories... just didn't feel very good to me. A drop-off in quality compared to the previous volts.

Anyone enlighten me on what Dredd is referring to with 'Look at Guatemala'?

I wondered about that. Didn't jog any memories.

Looks like the Slaine volume that follows The Horned God is indeed called Volume Four, it's listed on the Hachette site now.
Let the grumbling begin!

Man, that's stupid.

I was invited, but it was about a future figurine range rather than new books, so I took a pass.

Yeah I'd love to see Canon Fodder between hard covers.

Kingdom Volume 3 seems wise.

Mambo! Or Mazeworld...

Skip Tracer: anyone else respond to the tri-boobied lady with the Arnie-sanctioned "Baby you make me wish I had three hands", only to piss themselves laughing that a four-armed man is referred to in the very next frame?

And then freak out at the horrible, angry, sticky, living vagina-pillow in the final frame?

Just me then.

I didn't think that the ending of the recent Kingdom story felt *that* final. And given the background to the novel (Fiefdom) I'm guessing Gene gets to Europe eventually

Molcher's essay in the back of Vol.2 is absolutely superb.
