Comments:


This reprint is the first to feature the so called banned episodes, Burger Wars written by john Wagner, and Soul Food written by Chris Lowder (aka Jack Adrian). It has been previously published several months before as an hardcover deluxe edition, with a different cover.


This TPB reprint shares the same content overall to the deluxe hardcover edition (in bold I have highlighted the differences):
  • Two new chapter breaks design (Pye Parr?, see below for one of them)
  • Two new introductions by John Wagner and Chris Lowder dated May 2016
  • Colored prog covers from 2000 AD #61, 63, 66, 69, 72, 74, 75, 77, 79, 82, 83, 85 (cover for prog #74 and #82 where not included in the hardcover edition)
  • A B&W illustration from Brian Bolland uses as opening page for the 1994 Titan reprint, and three B&W poster illustrations (see below)
  • Colored Tweak Star-scan from  2000 AD #83 by Brian Bolland
  • Virgin cover illustration for this reprint by Mike McMahon
  • IPC retractation strip illustrated by Brett ewins, published in 2000 AD #84

From the deluxe edition, the following extra are not included in this paperback edition:


  • A two pages Cursed Earth B&W map (see below)
  • Collored covers of 1982 Titan reprints (part 1 by Brian Bolland and part 2 by Mike McMahon) used as second and third of cover

Also, both editions feature exclusive covers.

A limited edition (200 numbered copies), was proposed directly through 2000 AD webshop. This is Rebellion description of this edition:



Only 200 copies of this exclusive limited edition, which comes with a bookplate signed by Mick McMahon and a B&W print of his brand new cover.
I have copy #114. As always, the bookplate is a sticker glued on the second of cover. The A4 B&W art print is numbered and signed.

Notice that the London Forbidden Planet store have proposed (and still are perhaps) the regular edition of this TPB with a limited A5 colored signed print (I don't know how many of these prints a have been produced).
