Molch- Will subs have the option to order it as a one-off? Think that was what happened to the last special... and thanks for clearing up questions.

No worries. Not sure what you mean here - you'll be able to buy it from newsagents and through the webshop.

Molch- IIRC when the winter spec came out- lo those many moons ago- Tharg sent all the subs a letter with an order form on so we could avoid going into shops.

I was just wondering if that would be the case here, but if not- I'm sure the webshop will do brisk trade.

I don't believe we'll be doing so, no. There'll be ads in the Prog so everyone will have plenty of warning.

The Summer Special will not be included in subscriptions, so will have to be bought separately.

OUTRAGE!



Cheers

Yep, sometimes I get so angry I can't manage to colour inside the lines either  :)

ps. Wasn't the '77 edition a Summer Special too? Makes this one #2 ?

It gets worse.

I bet it won't have a self-turning page mechanism either.

Tch.

If that's the case, I am going to be firing up the outrage bus. So every one can jump on it!

I have to wait until Summer to get my hands on this piece of shit? Fuck you and your blatant contempt for your readership.

Actually this will be the 2nd Summer Special 'Supercomic' with the first being in 1977.

There has also been:

1 2000 AD Action Special - 1992
19 2000 AD Sci-Fi Specials - 1978 to 1996
7 2000 AD Winter Specials - 1988 to 2005 (the 2005 one was ten years after the 1995 one)

So fingers crossed it sells well!

Well 1977 was the first Summer Special Supercomic but the 2014 is the first Summer Special (sans Supercomic).
