    I am so pumped that we are finally getting a complete UK collection and not just the major story lines. If you have never read the UK stuff there is no better time than now, it is excellent.

    :lol  I think you just gave away your location.

    I preordered Volume 1 and I'll be preordering this, but is the Amazon listing right about what issues it contains? It says #45-59, but that means Volume 1 would contain #1-44.

    Volume 1 will only include the issues from 1-44 that are british only material. I think the british only material started around issue 15 or so, then US stories\british stories would alternate for a while.

    I'd say the contents are probably inaccurate in that listing, since the amount of UK-original material between 45 and 59 is substantially less than that in #1-44.

    I wish they would print a "master collection" that includes all UK material AND all US material. That way, the lazy among us *waves* won't have to pick up one book, read a story, put that book down, pick up another book, read a story, put that book down, pick up the first book again...

    I spoke with James at AA regarding the UK Classics, volume 2 is going to cover up to #77 [In The National Interest], and it'll also have the "Special Teams Have Arrived" freebie. At a guess I'd say it'll also include stories from the 2nd annual.

    Plus there were some edits made to the US reprints in the UK books to make the stories fit with the UK ones. Nothing really major, just the odd bit of dialogue changed and Skids being erased from the background when he was supposed to be in limbo.

    ^ I'd really dig seeing where all the changes were made. They changed dialogue in places? Were Americanisms changed into... Britishisms? Is that a thing?

    Yeah, the main changes were just to correct spelling, but there were actual dialogue changes in places too.

    Main example was when US#25 was reprinted, as the Preadcons had already shown up 10 issues previously in the UK. There's a list of changes on the wiki.
