Send Hachette a Facebook message and ask when your oils were dispatched. Get a specific date. If they don’t show up within

Would have been more apparent had the book names been on the spines.

Or just have HG as 4 implicitly and number the next one 5.

In happy political news, Mrs IP got ILR (settled status) yesterday. We shouldn't have had to go through this shit, and many others are still fighting this abhorrent system. If you have a mind to ever write to your MP, please do so and ask them to demand a declaratory system for people who moved here with every assumption they could just live their lives.

Any subscribers received 43&44 yet?
Nope. Not hugely surprised. Over four weeks since my previous delivery.

Why male-oriented? :/

Depends whether you want a set of comics, or a hardback book, really. There's a set of the former on eBay right now for £7.50. (It's unlikely you'll find them all new – Rebellion only have 3–6 in stock, at three quid each.) The book's RRP is £25, although you can find it online for as little as £18.

Just noticed that two payments have been taken for March -1 March and 29 March.
Thereby flatly contradicting the bullshit I was told previously about this, that they cannot take more than one payment per month. (Of course, it was obvious that was rubbish on a four-weekly schedule anyway, which is less than one month in all but one case.)

You could always threaten to subscribe, like I did, and then have the idiots take that as a literal cancellation request, and cancel my subscription and direct debit. That was a fun time.

I never got the option of a replacement, despite asking about it. Has anyone got correct end papers on either of those books?

Yeah. I've no idea how well this is selling compared to other partworks, but you wouldn't expect them to be knocking around stores in any numbers by this point. My hope is that the 2000 AD one is doing well enough for an extension – another 20 volumes would be very nice, to mop up story endings/logical conclusions (Kingdom, for example), and to get some other stuff into the mix (Firekind, say).

I feel really downcast about things right now, after the shitshow of this evening's IVs. Some politicians are trying to find positives. It feels like there may be a consensus, or that one could be reached. But we're out of time. One more crack at this and then we're over the cliff edge.

Bercow having fun this evening. He just shat all over hard Brexit options, and now the Tories hate him even more than they already did – if that's possible.

The Wheel of Worlds (2014) collets the first three of the so-far five printed stories within Brass Sun: The Wheel of Worlds; The Diamond Age; Floating Worlds. The six-issue miniseries compiles the same, splitting each story between two issues.

The hardcover is gorgeous. I do hope there will be another.

Free postage and the guarantee of delivery? Relatively low-hassle replacements when images are damaged?

Honestly, I have had the same problems with Hachette, not least the long delays. If you bug them enough on Facebook, they might bump your sub accordingly. Others here have also figured out cunning ways of catching up, if you read back through the thread.
