The Guardian seems to think so. Check out HERE to see what they have to say.
Personally? I can’t see me rushing out to get a Dan Dare collection (though know many who would) but I’m really hoping this paves the way for the phone book collected edition of issues 1-10 of 2000AD I’ve been after for years. Pretty sure Dare was the only strip causing legal headaches with regards this.
Cheers to Luke Foster for the heads up

Artist Ben Willsher will be signing Dredd Uprise #1 and the Diamond UK Exclusive Variant, both at Forbidden Planet London on Saturday 1st November from 1 – 2pm!
From the writer of Dredd: Underbelly and the artist of X-Men Legacy comes a new Dredd movie sequel mini-series!
In the neglected sector of Mega-City One known as The Spit, tensions are reaching boiling point amongst the citizens as the shiny new mega-block Oemling Tower is being constructed for those that can afford to live in it. As the Judges face running battles with rioters, the underground movement known as Uprise stokes the flames of dissent.
Ben Willsher is a British comics artist who has drawn a multitude of strips and imagery for 2000AD, including the Sinister Dexter story, ‘Relode’, ‘The Skinning Room’ and ‘California Babylon’ for Judge Dredd and a star scan of Slaine for the 2000AD Sci-Fi Special. He’s also drawn several covers for Judge Dredd Magazine and the cover for this year’s 2000AD annual.

Visitors attending this signing can use the code phrase “Gallagher who?” to also get a free hug.
As the title suggests, Mr Goddard will be a guest at the upcoming Lille Comics Festival on the 6th and 7th of December, full details of which can be found HERE
Definitely a guy you want to get a sketch from and if he is selling any of his black and white pages I would suggest, metaphorically, “tearing his fucking arm off”.
And if that’s not enough he’s also selling these AWESOME prints as coloured by Dylan Teague. Too damn cool.
And if anyone from 2000AD marketing sees this…..t-shirts? Please?
Still one of my all time favourite graphic novels and now in a hardback format that will hopefully show it in the quality the artwork deserves, this slice of awesomeness is due for release from Titan comics in May 2015.
An ex nicked my original copy and the only one I now have left is a horribly muddy reprint from years ago which is better than nothing, but still……
I’ve already pre-ordered mine for £11.17 from Amazon. Can’t recommend you doing the same enough
Tomorrow sees the release of the collected edition of Rob Williams and D’Israeli’s Ordinary. Included in this edition…
“The collection is packed with extras including a host of exclusive pin-ups by Mark Buckingham, Laurence Campbell, Alison Sampson, Henry Flint, Edmund Bagwell, Ben Oliver, Brian Ching & Michael Atiyeh and many more!“
The guys at Titan were good enough to send us the pin ups from Brian Ching & Michael Atiyeh, Henry Flint and Mark Buckingham & D’Israeli to share, so enjoy. There’ll be another post tomorrow with full release details.
