Perhaps Rebellion will do a limited HC, as with 13th Floor.

    Sadly it seems the second volume of Leopard of Lime Street may be paperback only.  If so it's another instance of the follow up volume not being hardback like the original.[/list]

    Please be aware that this list is the mainstream release schedule and doesn't include any special editions we may offer through our webshop.

    The big news for me is that Absalom Volume 3 is touted as it’s last, meaning that the next story will be it’s final story. :o :(

      Great!  Thanks Molch-R.  I realise that's not a definite promise, but it means there's still hope for some matching hardbacks.

      Death Wish has an amazing cover and the blurb sounds super awesome. But is it actually any good?
      And by good, I mean is it full of the violent pain and death I've come to know and love from 2000AD / early Action, or is it watered down?

      Well, it managed to get a resurgence in the 80's Eagle.  Compared to Action / Tooth, aye it is quite tame.  Worth reading though?  I would say so.  Not exactly full of the violent pain and death Tooth fans are used to but enjoyable nonetheless.

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

      Sad news... I hope we get another series from the same world at some point. Absalom and Cabs have been brilliant!

      To be honest I think its a good thing. Its always had the sense of something that that a single finite story to tell and it will be nice to have it wrap up as a solid chunk of goodness. So many writers have so many plates spinning its nice to see some get wrapped up.

      Much as I love Ian Edginton's work right now he could well benefit from doing this as well. Which from his recent thrillcast he might be aware needs to happen.

      I loved the gruesomeness and despair of Death Wish when it ran in Tiger (which my brother got), but lost interest when Blake had his face perfectly reconstructed by a plastic surgeon... only to immediately have another accident disfigure him in the exact same way (anticipating Moe Syzlak's career as a soap star by some 20 years).

      Yeah, that’s a very good point.  :)

      I’d still love a third series in the same universe at some point though, focussing on different characters.

      Having re-read Helium vol1 recently in a Meg floppy: yep.

      Rather than start a separate thread...
       
      I was wondering if we're ever likely to see large format collections of Nemesis the Warlock. We've had the Mek-Files and Ro-Busters collections and various other large hardbacks, and I would have thought Nemesis an obvious next step. Yeah, I know I've already got the Titan reprints and the Rebellion phonebooks and the Best of 2000AD monthlies and... but I'd like some large format hardbacks.

      Same goes for large format hardback editions of the Dredd epics. Cursed Earth was great, but let's have a few more. I know there's all the Hachette stuff, but I'd prefer something that approximates the original page size.

      Regards,

      Robin
