Anyone know why there isn’t a digital edition of the first volume? Seems an odd omission from the shop.

Isn't the first volume available from comichaus on the app?

Mine arrived today, so that was this evening taken care of. It's fantastic!

I already collected my kickstarter reward at thought bubble last year, but it was nice to find a free sticker and cool keyring/LED torch included (courtesy of Laser ToolsTM - now that's what I call a shirt sponsorship!). I almost threw this out with the packaging.

Great story, great art, what can I say? I'm preaching to the choir here. There's a sports reporter I'm sure I've heard of, and loads of familiar names in the 'thank you' list (Karen Berger? wow), including my favourite: "That guy that writes the letters to 2000ad" - well done Tom!

All this, and the collected wisdom of Kevin Keegan too.

It smells GLORIOUS. I read the first part last night and it's terrfic. I have no idea why it hasn't found a wider audience yet, it deserves to.
I backed at a reward level to get some Dan Cornwell Dredd art too - still awaiting that but excited to see what shows up.

It'll be well worth it. Dan is a fantastic artist and I'm so pleased he's finding more work.

Thanks - I hadn’t noticed the sticker. It was embedded inside the book. Nor had I realised the key ring had a torch embedded, but to be fair I hadn’t really looked at it.

Mine popped through the door today. Sooo looking forward to this as I really liked the 1st volume.

I agree I’m also surprised this has needed a kickstarter to get a 2nd volume.
However I’d support another one (if the end has been open ended)

Grrr! <shakes fist>!

Hadn't twigged on the sticker - found in amongst the pages. Nice touch!

Not gonna lie — it was a struggle getting this one across the finish line. We could have been a bit savvier about the social media push, but it’s mildly depressing that Rok struggled to make £20K when the Tank Girl KS a few years back made north of £175K.

I read the first chapter and this is great fun.  Great story so far and I must say that the art works great with the story. Great lettering as well Jim.
