You’d have to ask their in-house team if they’d combine orders, but I wouldn’t leave it too long. As per up the thread, it’s not that more stuff has been added, but that the sales page is not working correctly. So look through the other pages in the store and look for the red prices. e.g. last I looked, every single Zenith HC was in there for eight quid a pop.

May drop the subscription and buy individual issues, based on this announcement.
With respect, short of being a digital subscriber, isn’t that a bit like cutting off the nose to spite the face, given the costs involved?

An annual sub to 2000 AD is £120. 2000 AD costs £2.99 for a standard issue, and, what, a fiver for the Christmas one? Remove Regened from the equation, and you’re getting £137 of Progs you want for £120, and they’re shipped to your door. It seems a bit bizarre to want to spend an extra 17 quid, just because you’ve a bee in your bonnet about four issues you might not enjoy. (Even on the basis of a monthly print sub, you’re still saving a fiver over the year. So why not just stick with the sub and give away the issues you don’t want?)

Er. That’s… quite something.

It’s like they randomly respond, half the time. I once made the mistake of saying I was “thinking about cancelling” because of their screw-ups, whereupon they immediately cancelled my subscription. That was a lesson learned.

Yep. Worth rummaging, by the looks of it. Eg Chopper is also currently on sale, but not yet listed on the main sales page, as is every one of the Restricted Files volumes, the Trifecta HC, and John Smith's properly creepy Cradlegrave.

Already some changes from last night. ROTR wasn’t there at the start. Dare and Daily Dredds HCs now down to one volume each. Nemesis 3 also gone.

Using my amazing admin powers, I can confirm that Tjm86 does not in fact live in Yakutsk, China, Brunei, or Australia. :D

I get the impression last year that Regened wasn’t necessarily planned to be a normal Prog (although that may well be wrong). Scheduling must be nightmarish for Tharg regardless, but I would hope with four of these rocking up in 2020 that he’s going to deal with long-running series prior to each breakpoint.

As for the other suggestions, I’m sure an ongoing would be better, but it would also be a massive risk and colossally expensive to launch. Specials are nightmarish, too, because they all cost money to get on the shelves. (This is why you quite often see titles shift names but not codes in WHSmith. They’re taking existing slots. Or you see things like Lego magazines with different covers but all technically under one ‘banner’ title. I’ve no idea if this is how Rebellion is dealing with the slew of specials next year, mind.)

Traditionally a Con/Lab marginal, but with a big LD voting pool. That said, the recent constituency polling had Con 38, LD 36, Lab 23. On that basis, given usual margin of error caveats, that one actually is seemingly winnable by the Lib Dems. (Same also for Kensington. I suspect Finchley is well out of reach though.)

One can but hope. Nearly three million was the figure I last saw (2.8m) and that was a while back. Here’s hoping they’re mainly progressives and willing to hold their noses and vote tactically.

Exactly. There have been complaints here from people who don’t read the email newsletter, and so we’re now attempting to convey news via the forum as well.

As for annual vs monthly subs, one guarantees a revenue stream and the other does not. Incentives are almost always for longer subscription periods. However, Rebellion is different from other publishers in one key way: it sends incentives to existing subscribers as well. Most other mags don’t do anything like that.

Sure thing. Just putting it out there in a general sense – rather than it being directed at you – because I’ve seen angry complaints in other places from people fuming that they can’t get 50% off of pre-order special edition hardbacks, and off of other sale items, some of which were heavily reduced.

Given how mini-IP is now devouring The Beano every week (and most of The Phoenix), I really wish Rebellion would do something regular in this space. I know it’s insanely expensive and insanely risky, hence it not happening, but I’d subscribe to a monthly Cor/Buster right away, if the quality level was anything like in this year’s special.

Worth noting, obviously, that you won’t be able to double dip on sales items. So anything on sale will NOT have a further 50% reduction from the subs discount.

Black Friday is upon us. From 00:01–23:59 GMT, Tharg the Generous will be offering discounts as deep as the darkest abyss (up to 60% off). So keep watching the store, Earthlets, and grab yourself a bargain!

So, Jeremy Corbyn held a press conference revealing 400 pages of unredacted documents exposing the NHS is on the table in US trade talks.
I think that the first few questions from journalists were all BUT WHAT ABOUT APOLOGISING FOR ANTISEMITISM sums up the level of coverage this will receive. I hope I’m wrong.
