Format: Hardcover
This is the first of a series of 12 glorious volumes which have appeared from 2004 to 2009. They are a collectors' limited edition - 500 in Dutch and 500 in English - and will bring back many happy memories to many middle-aged readers who remember the Trigan Empire story strip that first appeared in Ranger (for 40 weeks) & then in Look and Learn from the mid 60's to 1982.
This collection brings together all the strips that were written by Mike Butterworth and illustrated by Don Lawrence - the 'dream team' who both sadly died quite a few years ago although Lawrence passed away in the knowledge that the collection would soon be a reality.
Many consider the Trigan Empire stories to rival those of Dan Dare from the Eagle and it is a pity that the standard could not continue after firstly Lawrence, and then Butterworth, left the story.
The early premise was that the story would tell of the Rise and Fall of the Trigan Empire in the distant galaxy of Yarna on the planet of Elekton. The greatest force on this planet was eventually the Trigan Empire which was founded by one man, Trigo, who converted a wandering tribe of nomads into the mighty Trigan Empire.
The first story in this initial volume tells of a spaceship that crashes on Earth. The long dead occupants are all that are left of the once mighty civilisation that had been created by Trigo countless millennia ago. After 42 years' work a professor was eventually able to decode the annals that were found on the craft and was able to inform everyone on Earth about the history of the Trigan Empire in the land of Vorg on the continent of Victris.
Unfortunately the Fall element of the Empire was never reached as the stories eventually concentrated on the adventures of Trigo and his nephew, Janno.

Format: Hardcover
I grew up in the 1960s reading DC and Marvel comics, but I remember there were some British comics back then that stood out in quality and scope. I was too young for `Eagle', which started several years before I was born, bur I remember the debut of Gerry Anderson's `TV21' comic in 1965, closely followed by the start of The Trigan Empire in `Ranger' and then continued in 'Look and Learn', which I would read in the public library every Saturday

In recent years Titan Books have been reprinting the Dan Dare stories from `Eagle', and Century 21 are reprinting the classic TV21 stories from the mid-late 1960s, probably the high-point of the British comic book - in terms of the sheer number of classic stories and artists in the same magazine (volume 5 is scheduled as I type). It was left, however, to a Dutch publisher to reprint the Trigan Empire stories, albeit in an expensive collectors' edition of 12 volumes. These volumes were published in reverse order, starting with the later stories, and now they have finally released volume 1 - The Invaders from Gallas - many scenes of which I still remember from 1965! This volume contains just over 100 pages of story, in full-colour large format pages - similar in size to the recent Prince Valliant reprint editions. The pages are reproduced where possible from the original artwork, one of the reasons for the reverse-order of publication, as the art for the later stories were more easily available, and it was hoped that the earlier artwork would be flushed out of hiding as the project progressed.

This volume contains four stories, the origin tale `Victory for the Trigans', 39 pages; `Crash in the Jungle', 6 pages; `The Falling Moon', 28 pages; `The Invaders from Gallas', 30 pages.
