27 strips reprinted in chronological order (112 pages B&W, same as the Titan Book reprint collection vol 5 except original colored pages are printed in colour, 25 pages for this volume).
Extra material is identical to the 2008 Titan Books edition (Jane Colquhoun introduction, contextual article by Steve White, strip commentaries by Pat Mills).


The following comments are in no way means to denigrate the previous work of people from Titan Books, which is already of great quality regarding the rarity of the material sources. And this French edition would probably never have seen the light of day without the Deluxe Titan Books edition. I'm just pointing out here the differences between both editions because I for myself am always searching for this kind of information.

Material sources used for this French edition originate entirely from original sources, and is entirely clearer and of better quality than the 2007 Titan reprint. Again original colored pages are printed in colour. Note that the infamous (but original) Gothic style strip title has been replaced by the regular one.

Note that two pages from strip 26 were switched in my copy of the Titan edition (first print) which is rectified in the French edition and the second printing of the Titan edition (thanks to Glassstanley from the 2000 AD forum for this last information).
