Sorely tempted by the hardback but I'd like to know the size of the book. Are we talking same size as the current softback range or same size as originally published way back when?
An old-school, no-bullshit, boys-own action/adventure comic reminiscent of the 2000ads and Eagles and Warlords and Battles and other glorious black-and-white comics that were so, so cool in the 70's and 80's - Buy the hardback Christmas Annual!

One for me as well. I'm really looking forward to reading these again. It deserves to be ranked among the best things to have appeared in the prog.

Ordered a copy of the hardback there. I have only a vague recollection of this story now other than I enjoyed what I read of it (apart from a one-off strip that appeared in one of the sci-fi specials). It will be good to see it again.

I'll admit I'm torn on this one. On the one hand a limited hardback with exclusive John Ridgway art print is 'Whoo!" but on the other I'm not exactly rushing to put Summer Magic on my wish list. I remember liking the first series when it appeared in the Prog but I don't look back on it with the same fondness as, say, 'The VCs' or 'Meltdown Man' (which I'd love hardback editions of), so I don't know if it's an essential purchase for me despite its previous scarcity...  :-\

Yep, had to jump right on this pre-ordering the hardback bandwagon.

Summer Magic was one of the greatest 2000AD strips ever, and the sequels weren't bad either.

Meltdown Down is probably my favourite one-off strip that 2000AD produced (in that there was never a follow up). Loved it and would definitely buy a hardback of it.

Hugely excited about the hardback. I'm mostly digital nowadays, but I would safely say that I would pick up any limited edition 2000AD hardback graphic novel.

What about a nice Button Man hardback with a new Ranson cover?

So is the version to be released on 4th May only available in hardback and it's a limited run?

Apologies for what I strongly suspect are stupid questions.

Sorely tempted by the hardback but I'd like to know the size of the book. Are we talking same size as the current softback range or same size as originally published way back when?

It should be the same size as the recent Cursed Earth Uncensored book.

Perfect.
