Where the fuck is Lady V on Blu, which went out of print really fast because Tartan died soon after.

Miss V is on Blu almost everywhere else in the world. If you're super anxious, you can check to see if any of the editions are region locked. If not, I suspect Palisades Tartan will be getting on releasing all 3 on Blu sometime in '10.
