I am planning to re-relase our first two volumes to coincide with the December 1st release of volume 3. As I have recently discovered new techniques for cleaning the original colour pages, I shall be updating the images to include them.

It also gives me the opportunity to make a few other alterations. First of all, I shall be removing the 8-page custom strip Assassins and the 8 custom datafiles. No offence to Jamar, but to me they have always been out of place. I shall be replacing them with the 8 missing Datafiles, the 2-page File on the Baron and the 6 "untamed..." adverts.

I shall be adding four new pages per volume, being the unused indyplanet intro pages and a contents page, and at the back I shall be adding contact details for the featured colourists and a list of credits. I will also be adding page numbers to each entire volume.

I have reshuffled the peripheral pages so that the Datafiles are now grouped by squads. I have left the storylines as they are.

Here are the proposed new layouts:

Finally, I plan to change the project title from "The Best Of" to "The Complete Works".Volume I - World Enemy No. 1

I understand how much this sucks for those who have already bought the books (myself included), which is why I have worked very hard to keep the storyline content the same. But as I plan to release a revised edition anyway this is the best time to do this. Does anybody have any objections?
