Contains Big Bang Comics #3 plus further episodes. In which Russell's life becomes even more chaotic as he struggles with his tobacco addiction, experiences strange dreams, meets many alarmingly eccentric people and has a traumatic episode at a rebirthing centre before fleeing to a very strange rural retreat.
Contains various short strips, an expanded version of a strip intended for Glastonbury Festival Programme (but never used because it was considered to show the festival in a "bad light"!), the continuation of 'The Same Old Story', and the first episode of another Russell serial 'Those Good Old Days' beginning with Russell as a youth in the 70's.
Various short Russell strips involving a cross section of humanity, plus the next episode of 'The Same Old Story' with further Russell incarnations and some very weird stuff indeed, and the second episode of 'Those Good Old Days' bringing our hero's life up to date (the 1990's, that is!) and the first intimations of conspiracy.
The usual collection of short strips, mostly involving Russell, part 5 of 'The Same Old Story', and Part 3 of 'Those Good Old Days' in which Russell catches up with one of his old buddies while the conspiracy thickens and dangers multiply.
After a gap of many years we meet Russell again, in the second decade of the 21st century, with a comic entirely devoted to (and forming the final episode of!) 'Those Good Old Days' in which Russell survives many dangers while confronting large chunks of his past, and ends up older but no wiser at all.
An extended edition from the late 90's of a classic publication from the early 90's – the earlier version was the first comic ever in this country (and perhaps anywhere!) to be printed on modern process hemp paper – and chronicles Russell's musings on the modern subject of cannabis use, finally winding up with an eye-watering eco-rant on the history and politics of the weed by a crazed expert.
