    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.

    OK, so there were ads on it in the past?

    The channel is seven years old, I seem to recall turning ads off after maybe three months.

    If you go about 10 secs in there's a marker on the timeline, with a pop-up ad.

    That's on this one https://youtu.be/cLIfbQeSW2w yeah? Yes, an audio firm has put in a copyright claim so it automatically shows ads - we don't run them or benefit from them.

    Hi Mike,

    I swear blind I've seen ads on it in the past.

    I turned it off years ago and have double-checked - monetisation is definitely not activated on our channel. If you see ads, it's probably because YouTube has rightly/wrongly identified copyrighted material on a video (like the track 'Athmo3-video copilot' on the Minty trailer) and forces ads onto it whether you want it to or not. If it's inaccurately showing ads, let me know and I can challenge it.

    Although strangely when Rebellion hosted the Minty trailer on the 2000AD account, they did allow youtube revenue. Cheers.

    Sorry Steve, I really can't let that pass - we do not have ads enabled on our videos. According to YouTube, your Minty trailer that we hosted apparently includes copyrighted audio (I can provide you with the details if you'd like) so ads appear automatically.

    Announcements / 2000 AD ART STARS – enter now!
    « on: 09 May, 2018, 09:54:07 pm »
    Some of the biggest artists in comic books got their break at the legendary award-winning 2000 AD – and you could be joining them! CBR has the announcement: https://www.cbr.com/2000-ad-judge-dredd-art-competition/

    Our new art competition - 2000 AD Art Stars - is your chance to get into the pages of 2000 AD AND get paid for it!

    Star Scans have been a staple of 2000 AD since its earliest days: single-image pin-ups of the greatest characters in the galaxy, from Judge Dredd and Strontium Dog to Dan Dare and Rogue Trooper, drawn by some of the best artists in comics from Brian Bolland and Dave Gibbons to Jock and Liam Sharp!

    Every four months, we’re giving artistic Earthlets the chance to submit Star Scan pin-ups based on 2000 AD characters – and the winner, chosen by the editorial team at 2000 AD, will be published in a future edition of the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic. PLUS they’ll be paid for their art!

    Each four months we’ll announce a new theme and Earthlets can submit their art direct to the editorial droids. Our editor will choose their favourite image for publication. Plus, a runner up will be chosen by public vote and receive zarjaz 2000 AD graphic novels! This is your chance to follow in the footsteps of some of comics’ greatest artistic talents and, who knows, maybe break into the industry yourself!


    To submit your Judge Dredd-themed 2000 AD Art Star entry now, email the artwork as a 300dpi jpg image (no bigger than 10mb in size) to 2000adartcomp@gmail.com
    Entries are open until 9th September 2018. Terms and conditions apply.

    Follow the competition as we feature selected entries on 2000 AD’s social media at:

    Instagram: instagram.com/2000adartcomp
    Facebook: facebook.com/2000adartcomp
    Twitter: twitter.com/2000AD
    Tumblr: 2000ADonline.tumblr.com

    Terms and Conditions:
    All entries will be judged by editorial staff at 2000 AD. The judges’ decision is final.
    The winning entry will be published as a ‘Star Scan’ in a forthcoming edition of 2000 AD, the date to be decided by editorial.
    In order for their entry to be published in 2000 AD and to receive payment, the winner must sign a standard contract with 2000 AD/Rebellion.
    Entries may be selected to feature on 2000 AD's social media accounts with due named credit.
    Non-winning entries will not be used by 2000 AD and will be deleted from Rebellion's servers as soon as a winner is chosen (selected images will remain on social media but can be removed upon request). Artwork remains the property of artists but copyright of characters remains with Rebellion.
    Entries not fitting the relevant quarter's theme will not be considered.
    Entries will not be considered from professionals currently or previously working in the comic book industry, as adjudicated by 2000 AD.
