Did anyone else get their prog in the old plastic, not-compostable, bag?

After several reports of Progs turning up in non-compostable bags we got our distributor to investigate - turns out that 720 subscriber copies were mailed out with the incorrect non-compostable poly bags. Our distributor accepted responsibility for the oversight and everyone should be back to the proper compostable bags with future issues.

Anyone enlighten me on what Dredd is referring to with 'Look at Guatemala'?

Doesn't ring any bells, its the kind of throw away line that the Big W does and other writers build a world around... all of which I love

I was wondering that too.  But I like it if it's not referring to anything in particular; makes you realise there's a whole rest of a world outside MC1.

To me it seemed obvious that this was not a specific reference but a throwaway line hinting at a wider world beyond what we see in Prog every week. I'm sure Mike Carroll will be able to get a tedious six-parter out if it in 2027.

That is quite a mean and misjudged comment, Cosh. While everyone is entitled to their opinions, we do ask that users of our forum treat our creators and their work with the respect they deserve.

The main reason for the difference is that you can only use Apple's set of price tiers for products and the nearest one available for that product is £9.99. But also, yes, Apple take a big cut.

    Sadly it seems the second volume of Leopard of Lime Street may be paperback only.  If so it's another instance of the follow up volume not being hardback like the original.[/list]

    Please be aware that this list is the mainstream release schedule and doesn't include any special editions we may offer through our webshop.

    Should also be noted that Grud himself has popped up in the strip, so it kind of ruins the theory of him being an arm of Justice Department.

    Unless that's some hardcore Wally Squad work.

    I'm talking about the church itself, rather than any underpinning belief system - the question was why does everyone used 'Grud', so the cultural/secular use of religious language makes sense. Anyway, I'm pinning Grud's appearance down to collective hysterical hallucination/manifestation of the Jungian collective unconscious ;)

    The church of Grud has always appeared to be the 'state religion' of Mega-City One, presumably created and controlled by Justice Department. It can be seen as a parody of the Church of England - a Christian denomination but one which serves as, essentially, an arm of government rather than being its own thing. Benign, non-radical, and existing to serve a function of state - in the same vein of Richard Dawkins' claims of being a 'cultural' or 'secular' Christian, it's a church that requires little to no faith. It's just part of the background. So while evangelical Christianity exists alongside it, it would be difficult to describe the Church of Grud as a Christian church per se.

    NECROPOST! I've given the Thrill-Mail a little redesign - do let me know what you think, especially whether you think the white background works/doesn't work.

    Okay, have investigated, and this was a failure on my part to grok the shop interface.

    However, in the interests of giving good feedback: searching for 'Brink' in the catalogue shows Book 1 listed as 'Digital Edition', book 2 listed same, and the Book 1 & 2 bundle listed as 'Paperback'. If you click on Book 2, Digital Edition is selected, and Paperback is greyed out, which to me reads as unselectable, even though I now realise it is actually selectable. Might I suggest that you show 'Digital Edition' and 'Paperback' as separate results in the search interface, and put a little bit of black into the additional format selectors. :)

    Many thanks for the feedback. This very point has been the source of much debate in the web team and the webshop has been through multiple iterations. We briefly considered having separate results for digital and physical but, in practice, so many search results looked even more confusing.

    Regarding the first point you make, any listing that has a physical copy includes a note like this:



    We've been pressing for physical media to appear first in searches but there's database issues with out-of-print books that will take a very long time to resolve. It's something we're aware of but there's no easy solution that covers all the bases at the moment.

    Although my copy has the other cover credit inside, so I'm not going crazy here.


    Huh, apologies are in order then - the PDF sent to the printers has Emily fully credited, but print copies seem to have the inside front cover for the Tula Lotay cover. We shall take this up with our printers, as that's really not on >:(

    Happy to receive this year's Sci-Fi Special in the post yesterday! I went for the Hershey cover although I am unable to find a credit, either in the issue itself or online.

    Wonder whether Bish-Op has seen that The Straitjacket Fits is finally getting the recognition it deserves in the latest episode.

    Yes, the audio is all bought and paid for.

    Then we'd need to file a dispute. I'll email you when I'm back in the office.
