    I didn't see this posted before but keep in mind, the 4 part mini is a weekly release, so you might be thinking of last weeks issue 1.

    Also the movie adaptation has already been released in trade form by IDW last week as well (same as the individual comics, expect different extras)

    Ah ok, that's probably it, when your not an avid reader of the comics they can all kinda' run together. My bad. :)

    SPOILER**

    Man I had hoped Donnelly wouldn't die. I'm a big fan of Zach Ward, and his characters always end up not breathing by the end of movies. That makes me three kinds of sad.


    END SPOILER**

    Always remembered loving the art in that issue of Target:2006 - Smith and Burns made the action look like the very best of 2000AD, which really rocked my socks. :D

    Don't know about specifics, but I read in an interview (which didn't contain a "spolier" warning!!) that LENNOX and EPPS are the SPOILERS only survivors of the Desert scene. Guess all those guys in the trailer being chased by SCORPONOK buy the farm.

    I am happy to say I have BOTH the full prequel and movie adaptation in their separate paperback forms.

    Where, you ask, did I buy them?

    The graphic novel section of Barnes and Noble :p

    The movie adaptation TPB was actually for the 1986 animated movie!

    I must admit, I'm enjoying the TARGET: 2006 reprints more than I thought (I'm so familiar with the material I didn't think I'd bother). For one thing, they fit in the same drawer as my Marvel US stuff now thanks to the reduced size. I actually wish I'd bought the animated Movie adaptation (even though it was tat) as the two would have been nice companions to each other.

    Maybe those US readers seeing Geoff Senior's work for the first time in issue #3 will realise why those of us familiar with his work are so excited to finally see him back drawing these characters.

    Ah, so the "Wreck and rule" phrase was real? the first time I read it I thought it was a joke. XD
    Thanks for the heads up.
