Note that the Second World War material (not scripted -nor liked- by Pat mills) will not be reprinted.
This collection is also described in details here.

From vol 3, the current French reprint of this collection uses color scans for the colored material and other better quality original sources whenever they can.

In August 2014, Titan has collected the first 86 strips (i.e. vol 1, 2, 3 and the three first strips of vol 4) in one softcover downsized omnibus with enhanced printing quality, having the opportunity to use Joe Colquhoun original artwork.
