Thanks folks - seemed optimistic to think it'd get to the end. What story does it get up to?

So are the mm stories not complete in this collection?
It's a joke. I was joking.

they are so far....just in a very very bizarre order.

the only things we're missing are the quitely stuff, the promised land, a couple of one offs and the final mm story

this book specifically has all the meg stories apart from the ones mentioned above

Looking at the roll call of artists for that MM book shows what happens to old artdroids--


Simon Davis - still going strong
Garry Marshall - works in animation
Henry Flint - still going strong
Sean Longcroft - no idea
Jon Beeston - works in animation
Jamie Grant - colours Frank Quitely''s work, owns a Glasgow art studio
Charlie Gillespie - games industry
Marc Wigmore - no idea
Christian Bravery - games industry
Trev Hairsine - working for the US publishers?

Draw comics, kids!  A bright future awaits!

If I could draw comics, do you think I'd be faffing about gradually learning I can't write them, either?

Just finished up on Mean machine. Gosh, I feel lucky I didn't read those when I was little. My phobia of cyborgs would'v crushed me. His son getting the dial... Yuck...

But I enjoyed it! Constantly mental, I didn't even flinch when parts of mean headbutting the other mean through a page, or the angel family was revealed to have been brought back by fire worshippers. Good selection of stories. Dredd Angel made for a great opener, and 3 amigos for a suitable ending.

I was also set on seeing Dredd Angel in the Brothers of the blood collection, but what do you know.

well the intro explains the weirdness of the mm books.

apparently the new book is a showcase of sb davis art and presumably the non davis stories are there just to say all of mm is finally collected

still an odd way to collect them mind

Yes, and there's an interview with Simon as well. Atmosphere-wise, my favourite story in this volume was Night of the Hunter, but I'm going to have to read all the stories chronologically after all three volumes are issued.

Quick question. Did anyone else's copy of Cursed Earth Carnage have duplicate pages of Citi-Def instead of the first pages of Sleeze and Ryder?

Not that bothered to read Sleeze an Ryder but preferred it to Citi-Def.

Fast food and undercover brothers have started pooping up with resellers, anybody here got them and want to spoil the contents list?
