Rat Pack

I was wondering has anyone bought the Rat Pack graphic novel? I ordered this today but don't know if it's a complete volume or the first in hopefully a longer run.

So no one else has in an interest in them I take it? I am referring to the dirty dozen inspired WWII team not frank sinatra and his friends.

I've kinda lost touch with the comic scene since our local comicbook shop (The House On The Borderland) closed down a couple of years ago...the owner got busted for selling drugs, nothing too hard just Wacky Backy etc, it all went rather down hill after that.

Run by a couple of Hippie types the place was a real dive & as grubby as hell, situated underneath a dodgy tattoo studio, played an excerlent selection of music on the stereo & was a hangout for all the more interesting denizens of Peterborough.
The owner cared for a lot of the local stray cat population too, there was always a bowl of catfood on the doorstep surrounded by hungry flea-ridden moggies.
More news, as its made, from new Action Force!

Was never really into Rat Pack as a kid - Dancer prancing like Dad's Army's evil twin - but saw the reprints were out, think it's only the first volume so far, but you'll find the answer on Moose Harris's http://www.bestofbattle.sevenpennynightmare.co.uk/

Sounds like a decent gaff. Many similar comic shops in London shut down, Comic Showcase used to have original IPC - 2000AD etc. art too, you could look through whatever you wanted, shut when Neal Street went completely commercial, c. 1995 or 96. Since then Forbidden Planet up the road just got bigger/went global, it's like visiting f*cking Disneyland Orlando. With a Klingon action figure awkwardly gracing the aperture of a fundament.

Dope and comics, a winning combination.

Thanks for that link Quickfire so Rat Pack ran for a few years so hopefully they will release the complete story. The only one I remember is the Fuhrersonderzug (probably spelt wrong) story where they stole hitler's personal train.

Rat Pack ran for yonks, I doubt it'll all be in the one volume.

Side tracking my own thread here but has there been any news on a Johnny Red volume 4?

Inevitable. Check out Moose Harris on tumblr, think some of the Cooper-era scans were underway a while back.
