The lurker awakes
« on: 15 August, 2020, 05:06:50 AM »
Hello all

I was a big fan of the comic back in the 90s after being hooked in by the launch of Crisis.

I was soon buying all the fleetway comics right up until the day I watched the Stallone Dredd movie in the theatres.

Lately I started grabbing some of the ultimate collection and then decided to obtain the lot at great expense - shipping to New Zealand is not cheap!

I've been really enjoying what I've been seeing in the ultimate collection - the proposed extension list looks great as it's either real classics or completely new to me thrills.

Welcome.

For that same reason of expensive shipping I went digital (I life in south Africa).  All the progs and meg are available from 2003 on wards if you browse the web store. You will also find that very classics for example Third World are available .You can even get the complete Nemesis, Rogue Trooper, Slaine and Strontium Dog as well.

Thanks all.

Catching up with the highlights has been great. Getting pretty much all of Strontium dog and Nemesis was the initial draw, but I'd also heard great things about Nicolai Dante so I'm looking forward to reading that all the way through.

I have to admit I was truly stoked to see that a Tyranny rex volume will be in the extension. Something about John Smith's writing demands re-reads - maybe all the leaving threads and hints at a messy broader world.

I know nothing about the red seas but I love Steve Yeowells art. That will be all new to me.

Thanks a bunch, IP! You've ruined my whole "PayPal me a fiver and I'll see what I can do" scam.

Clearly, you should have paid me a tenner via PayPal to ensure the continued survival of your nefarious scheme.

Let me guess - it was my stanning for John Smith that swayed you....

Thanks for the upgrade!
