*Collected Editions: Two more much-anticipated entries in Rebellion Publishing’s Treasury of British Comics Series. Black Max, originally seen in Thunder weekly, was a German pilot of World War II, Maximillien Von Klorr, who is not only the scourge of the Tommies in his own right, but also commands a squadron of deadly, giant bats who fight at his side! Well, obviously. Frank Pepper and Ken Mennell created the strip, with Pepper scripting. Eric Bradbury and Alfonso Font are the artists in this volume, which also encompasses the strip’s leap-over to Lion after Thunder’s cancellation. From the 1980s we welcome volume 1 of The Thirteenth Floor, revolving around a housing estate called Maxwell Towers, and the AI who runs it, a computer named Max, who’s very good to his tenants… unless they start behaving badly, in which case Max’s punishments for delinquent behaviour beat the heck out of ASBOs! This slender concept proved hugely popular with the readers of Scream! and Eagle Mk. II and John Wagner, Alan Grant and Jose Ortiz (with occasional guests) provide ironic twist-ending comeuppances a’plenty for various malfeasants. Both these compilations are brand new paperbacks: Black Max at £11, Thirteenth Floor at £15.
