If you're into Peter Bagge you can currently get the Complete Neat Stuff double hardback set for under £20 from Book Depository via Amazon at the moment (RRP apparently £53.00, Amazon have it listed for £37). As a 3rd party seller I'm not sure how many copies they have though.

Just to confirm the listings have how ended - most of the stuff sold except for the set of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen 'Tempest' and Tom Strong Bk 3. If anyone happens to be interested in either of these then please drop me a message.

I've got a few graphic novels/comics on eBay at the mo, including a complete run of LOEG 'The Tempest' comics, 3 of the Alan Moore Saga of the Swamp Thing hardcovers, 4 of the Tom Strong hardcovers plus Book Four TPB of Grant Morrisons The Invisibles. Take a look:

Zavvi are doing a deal on 10 DC graphic novels for £19.99 (plus £1.99 postage) with a fair selection to choose from, although it's still a stretch to find ten for me.

They've taken £15.99 from my account so I'm just going to assume they know something I don't.

65/66 here also, in a card envelope that looked like someone had given it a serious kicking. I took photos, expecting another replacement request was imminent. Somehow, the books are both fine. I’ve no idea how. (There was an actual chunk missing from the envelope.) That Strontium Dog book is a bit chunky, isn’t it?

Also, my delivery note said I’d be charged 40 quid, for some reason. So I need to check on that. Again.
Ha ha yeah it's about twice the size of the accompanying Slaine book (or is that one particularly slim?)

Anyway, it seems that Hachette's accounts have gone slightly screwy. I've since checked my Hachette account & that shows standard payment of £22.98 is due.

I had actually contacted them a week or so back to ask about the fact they hadn't taken the payment for 63/64 & was told that a payment of £15.99 was due to be taken shortly. This confused me (obviously) & I asked them to confirm that I wasn't somehow being charged for the covers special (which I have asked not to receive several times previously) but they said no, it's for the latest delivery. Now the books have arrived & I am indeed being charged £15.99 it's unclear what I'm actually being charged for.

Now I'm hoping they take a payment - whether it's £22.98, £15.99 or even £45.96 (ie the actual amount I am due to pay for the last 2 sets of books) - as don't want to miss several months payments due to their incompetence & then hachette suddenly try to take the while lot in one go.

My copies of 65/66 arrived today with the 5th premium figure (all in the same box but seemed to be packed securely & with suitable padding in the box to stop everything moving around). The figure of Judge Dredd is actually really good & I'm quite impressed.

Strangely, the delivery note that came in the box said I would be charged £15.99 for some reason rather than the standard £22.98 for the premium subscription - it says Parcel amount due £22.98, Total amount due £15.99. I'm not sure why this is. Hachette still haven't taken payment for the previous delivery of 63/64 either so God knows what this all means.

Has anyone here not had the latest payment taken (for issues 63/64)? My hachette account shows payment on 14th Feb which usually means the payment actually leaving my account 2 weeks later (this has been true for as long as I've ever bothered checking). However the most recent payment which should have been taken on 28th Feb wasn't taken. Just wanted to check if this was/wasn't the same for others before chasing it up.

Sooo .. here is a question,

Does anyone know what it happening with the premium figures? The last one i got was rouge - and I thought there was supposed to be 6 - every 7 deliveries or so - so i am guessing the next one would be due soon ?
Last figure came with issue 51/52 so next one is due with 65/66 I guess.

I've seen lots of people complaining about not getting any response to messages but I sent a message via FB messenger on Saturday (1st Feb) about one of the books in latest delivery being damaged (due to being delivered in a plastic bag) & received a reply on Wednesday (5th Feb) to say they're arranging a replacement. Whether a replacement actually arrives is another thing but I've found them to be generally fine the 5 or so times I've needed to contact them.

Just tried to buy Strontium Dog volume 6 (issue 52, vol 9) and it’s out of stock. 😬

Forbidden Planet hasn’t got it either -online or in the London shop. No luck at Orbital either 😢.
I've got a replacement copy of Volume 9 on the way due to spine printing misalignment on my first copy (slight overlap of the spine image onto the cover) so will probably stick the first copy on eBay when the new one arrives but if you're still looking & aren't bothered about the spine image too much then I'm open to selling direct instead. There seems to be a few copies of Volume 9 on eBay with the same printing issue as my copy (but don't seem to mention it) so I guess my replacement copy may have the same issue anyway (but hopefully not).

Have any other figurines or extras been dispatched with these issues? (45-56)?
Most recent one was Rogue Trooper, which came a couple of deliveries back, so probably with issues 51/52.

I've just checked & my volume 35 spine is off (only by a couple of mm) but while checking this I now see the spine for volume 9 is also completely off! I'll contact them via FB & see what happens.

Anyone know what the next premium sub figure will be? Feel like I haven't had a premium gift for a while now...
Assuming the figures come in the order listed on the Ultimate Collection site the next figure will be Nikolai Dante, followed by Judge Dredd then Rogue Trooper. The next figure should come with delivery of issues 51/52 (i.e. the next delivery, depending on how up-to-date your subscription is).
