Hey guys and gals.

Just wondering if anyone has picked up Book Two in the set yet?
I'm still waiting for my local comic store to get them in stock, and
I can't wait - the first one was such a great read. I'm still hoping
that sales will be high enough for the publishers to consider doing
the same with the other stories they ran in the Battle comics, particularly
Johnny Red. Anyone here have any contacts with the company?
Maybe we could get a petition going that could be sent to Titan

Anyway, for those that haven't seen it, heres the cover shot for
Volume Two that they have on Amazon's site.

Mine's in the post :):):)

Although I have noticed that the Megazine reprints have been poor quality of late, I do hope this edition is up to snuff.

But yeah, greatest comic ever.

Just curious, but what are the follow up articles (if any) like?

I remember with the first hardcover, they had photos and a
lot of the historical data upon which the stories were based.
has that been continued?

Haven't heard anything new since I sent that email to them, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Fantastic news.

I think the way to petition more hardbook books is through the Megazine. it was during their "what shall we reprint next?" debate on the letters page that I suggested Charley's War (can't remember which issue, I got a Dredd print!!). It proved to be popular with the readers and then along came the first hardback.

When they dropped the story for a few weeks there was a surge of demand and it came back. The strip is on hiatus again so I suggest a flurry of e-mails to it looks like Titan are using that for their market research, well that and sales figures I expect.
