Brit-Cit Babes... I really enjoy Steve Sampson's aesthetic, but I think that series was hamstrung by them making something fairly bland. With that title and his propensity for pin-up stylings it could have been quite a successful grand-guinol exploitation flick style thing

Fast Food is volume 71 and contains:
The League of Fatties;
Anatomy of a Crime;
Requiem for a Heavyweight;
The Eat of the Night;
Magnificent Obsession;
The Bazooka;
Fat Christmas;
Hot Night in 95; (!!!)
Fast Food;
Fat Fathers

Nah, don't switch. I've had a series of ebay alerts out for various 2000AD collections from months to year and 90% of them have got me the books for never more than 15% above cover price (including shipping), and usually less, no matter how rare the book. Including all 4 Volgan War hardcovers. Eventually. Patience, patience, patience.

The Extreme Edition reprint of Revere was my first 2000ad experience. I don't think much more needs to be said...

I read all of Strontium Dog over the course of this last year and I flipping loved The Kreeler Conspiracy('s narrative framing device). Re-writing *all* Strontium Dog stories as histories and dramatisations, using research and accounts from unreliable or down-right malicious witnesses and historians, with notes and interjections from it's curator is absolutely inspired and I was very sad when it was quietly dropped after that.

I couldn't care less about continuity, really, and this was an extremely elegant way of dealing with the issue.

Ah! They don't have paperbacks! That's taken a decision out of my hands then.

Slightly off topic, but I've just got the last of the Volgan War hardcovers that I needed, and I'm thinking abut the future of my library: I believe the three "return" books have hardcovers, but I've never actually seen one. Does anyone have photos of them they could share if they have them?

My Assumptions:
-They are the same size as the Mek-Files/Volgan War hardcovers (pro)
-They have identical contents to the Return paperbacks (con)

A nice design might swing it for them.

No. I hope it turns up somewhere in the Mega Collection, I don't want to buy a Day of Chaos: Fourth Faction paperback just for that one story.

(I think we can all agree that [...] Calhab [is] bad)

Nah, we can't, I thought it was bad *in places*, but it was just as often great, or at least ambitious, or at the very least interesting.

I'm new to Dredd. I only started with case files volume 15 months ago, and maybe that colours my perceptions, but the "bad" volumes full of weird, malformed, truncated, ugly, poorly considered, mutant curios that should by rights never have been published let alone reprinted? LOVE 'EM.

Do I prefer a huge slab of really good comics? Of course, but I genuinely especially look forward to the volumes of weird stuff, especially versus stuff already reprinted in the case files or in their own books.

Maybe it's bad business (but I have no access to sales number and most of you seem to still be here,) but if it is, it's a mistake I'm glad they made.

General / Re: Anyone prefer Finn over Slaine?
« on: 23 March, 2017, 09:19:58 am »
Yes. But then I've never actually read any Slaine so that probably explains that.

I do generally prefer Mills and Skinner to any of the roughly contemporaneous solo Mills stuff, tho.

Reading the parts of Finn that made it into Meg floppies I did think that it was a comic that I'd probably enjoy a lot more than the consensus, it plays with a lot of my Pet Themes.

Obviously the spirit of the 40th has taken a few of us...

Aside from the John Smith and Peter Milligan books, every single one of these has been bought and read in the last 14 months.

(I'm not a billionaire, I sold an equivalent amount of X-Men books to fund this endeavour)


Dredd Shelf #1


Dredd Shelf #2


Dredd Shelf #3 + Zenith and my Pat Mills books


Strontium Dog, Durham Red, Rogue Trooper, Hewligan's Haircut, Lobster Random + Extreme Editions of Revere, Firekind, Slaughterbowl, and The Dead/Tyranny Rex


John Smith, Peter Milligan, Alan Moore, a bunch of meg floppies + miscelaneous others.


EDIT: Oh, and there's that Rian Hughes book with Dare and Really and Truly in it somewhere...
