Get an entire year’s dose of digital Thrill-power in one go – for half price!

The 2000 AD Prog Collection bundles include all the issues of 2000 AD from a single calendar year – and each week we’ll be giving 50% off one of the collections between 2003 and 2015 on the 2000 AD webshop!

It's a great offer - but there's no way I can keep up with purchasing 1 years worth of progs per week even with that discount.  Which kind of puts me off trying.  Especially when there's a not insignificant overlap with the Ultimate Collection which I'm already paying for.

Being a reader who is living outside of the UK and is mainly a digital reader this is a pretty sweet deal. I will go for the first one but as sintec points out, the schedule is too fast to keep up with so I am unlikely to take advantage of the other year deals.

Amazing. I'm gonna hold off and maybe just get the last four or five. I moved to all digital and it's so much better (for me anyway)

I've said several times that I'd be likely to jump on it if they ever did a significant reduction on digital back progs. Doubt I'll buy the lot but I certainly have a couple of years earmarked for sure.

However, one part of this seems like deliberate trolling. Buy a year's worth of Progs at a greatly reduced but still not insignificant cost and you don't get the first episode of any of the stories!

I know. My point was that in any year bundle you buy, you won't get the first episode of the first block of stories in that year.

Obviously you can solve this by buying all the years.

Very tempting! Replace a few boxes with a few megabytes. Free up some space in the nerd cave.

It's probable at this point that PDFs will exist as an accessible medium until I'm dead, so...

You also get CBR downloads as an option. They’re basically ZIP files of JPEGs. Even if JPEG starts to die as a format, you’d be able to convert them easily enough.

Also, if you’re an iPad owner, I recommend Chunky (https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/chunky-comic-reader/id663567628) for reading your digital Progs.

Another good comic reader for the iPad is iComics, which I picked over Chunky as it supports a few more comic formats (ZIP, CBZ, RAR, CBR, 7ZIP, CB7, TAR, CBT, LZH, LHA, EPUB, PDF).

It’ll be interesting to see how this does. If we ever find out that is.

Might be worth a similar offer, but a year once a month rather than once a week?

A good promotion though, to be sure!

If this was monthly rather than weekly it would be very hard to resist.
