I had avoided the Eaglemoss Apes crossover special at first but then I saw WFTPOTA and enjoyed it so Apes fever grips me. Not read it yet but I am unclear why it is a fiver more than regular issues. Yes it has a dustjacket but beneath the book is the same cover ie produced exactly the same as the regular issues. No bookmark thingy. I had expected embossed or foil cover beneath. There's nothing written on the inside dust jackets. It just feels cheap. Content is 5 issues but no extra Gold Key backup like the regular series so less bang for the buck.
Feeling a bit ripped off. There's literally nothing extra here to justify the extra fiver. Silly Ralph!

The local newsagent appears to have stopped stocking the Trek partwork with the Apes special. I have hunted high and low in Edinburger and Glasgow and cannot find the current issue which is NEWSPAPER STRIPS PART 1. Has anyone seen it? One of the few issues I am after!

I see that from this month Titan have taken back UK publication of the novels. For many years Pocket has imported them. Interesting they have a UK publication again. No difference other than that the cover designers and artists are no longer credited. Poor.
