Daemonifuge - Kev Walker & Jim Campbell - part 1

I've enjoyed tracking down comics that were published in the late '90s / early '00s relating to the Warhammer (40k) universe. Some of this interest comes from (as far as I can see) an incomplete understanding of what comics were published, so I'm going to take just one story today and look at how / when / where it was published, Daemonifuge
Note this all relates to Daemonifuge book 1, rather than book 2.  

Originally published in Warhammer monthly issues 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10 & 11 [which I'll cover tomorrow], a period from June 1998 to January 1999.

The material above (plus additional pages) was then printed (in 1999) in this volume (ISBN 1-84154-117-6). Classic US comic book size. 
In 2002 the material in this book was re-published in a 3 issue mini-series (classic US comic book size)...

The material in issues 4 & 5 (plus additional pages) was reprinted in this March 2002 issue 1 (of 3) of Daemonifuge

The material in issues 6 & 7 & (some of) 9 (plus additional pages) was reprinted in this April 2002 issue 1 (of 3) of Daemonifuge.  

The material in (some of) issue 9 & 10 & 11 (plus additional pages) was reprinted in this May 2002 issue 3 (of 3) of Daemonifuge

So of all the material published in Warhammer monthly very little was re-published in a mini-series, in fact it was only this series and The Redeemer, which I covered here. Only a couple of the books were published in hardback AS WELL, but Daemonifuge was...

At this stage in my researches I can't say if this was the only over-sized book that Black Library ever published by this is definitely an oversized volume...

So here it is (from 2002), utilising elements of the mini-series covers...(ISBN 1-84154-261-X) 

And here it is with the smaller book for comparison... 

There was a further edition in 2005 (of which I don't own a copy) called Daemonifuge: Heretic Saint (ISBN 1-84416-251-6) which looks like this...

And the story itself? That's pretty good too :) - good luck tracking all this stuff down people.
