Last time I placed a standard order with them, it took quite a bit longer than two weeks to arrive. As for the website, who knows? But this isn’t the first time this has happened, and they were active on Facebook on Friday.

I guess it depends how big those volumes end up. To date, the 2000 AD ones have been skinnier than the Dredd ones, and so your Vols 1 and 2 seem about right. You could possibly sneak Northern Dark into Vol 1, thereby adding a bit more Absalom, but I’ve no idea. My guess is we’ll basically get the entire Ghosts of London trade (Noblesse Oblige/Sick Leave/Ghosts of London) tacked on the end of the second Cabs book (and comprising about half of the content of that final 2000 AD UC volume).

As Edginton & Brooker had to for Scarlet Traces
Had to? They didn’t have to do anything. They decided to.

Coleby’s art is fantastic these days – he’s a dynamic, exciting comic-book artist. MacNeil is an artist I’ve always appreciated, although his figure work somehow feels a bit stuff to me. Not sure why. However, if there’s an artist that can ‘take over’ from Ezquerra (assuming the editorial staff want continuity of a kind, rather than a very obvious diversion), I really can’t think of anyone better. Perhaps add into the contract – if he’s game – that we’d like some chunky focal outlines and panel borders!

Has this started to arrive for pre-orders? I got my subs but not this today.
Yeah, mine showed up this morning, albeit with a chunk out of the back cover/back few pages, for some reason. Not sure why/how, given that it’s shipped in a stiff card envelope.

5G reminds me of the exact same shit that happened with Wi-Fi back in the day, people freaking out because it would give them cancer.

Having not read nor even tracked the comic in years, I immediately thought “I bet X has happened”. Turns out, I was right. I’m not sure if that’s down to TWD being a bit predictable, or me being a massive cynic, mind.

Outlier got better and reads well collected. Sadly, The Brutania Chronicles did not, wasting the goodwill from that broadly excellent first series to mire itself in turgid, slothful plotting, retreads, and LOTS OF SHOUTY SPEECH BALLOONS.

On Minter, could be coincidence (if RMcC is a Minter fan) or extreme Dredd geekdom. Either’s fine by me. (GRIDRUNNER FOREVER!)

Jeff Minter Block isn't just a retro-gaming reference, it's been a feature of the extended Dredd universe since the eighties. Wouldn't have known that.
Well, Jeff’s been making games since 1981…

Has Russian Doll already been mentioned on this thread? It starts off a bit Groundhog Day, but veers into some pretty messed-up places. Really smart stuff, and I suspect the general way it works would appeal to fans of 2000 AD Time Twisters and the like.

Last time I ordered many items at once, I had about a 50% damage rate. And so I’m “looking forward” to asking for half my books to be replaced, assuming they actually show up in a week or two. That said, for all Hachette’s service, this is the first time my books haven’t shown up at all.

Finally got a response. They’ve officially listed my books as missing, and so I’ve been promised four in the dispatch apparently going out today. We’ll see.

I just got confirmation that I’ve been opted out of the covers volume. They totally ignored the query about when my books might actually show up. (Almost six weeks between the previous two deliveries. Now six weeks again since the previous one. And they grumpily told me on Facebook they ship every 28 days and I’m “not behind”. Sure. Obviously, issue 47 being on sale is a figment of my imagination.)

Mm. They’re not even responding to me on Facebook now. Probably not thrilled that I’ve stated they don’t have authorisation to take a payment they’ve not warned me about, but that they claim they have, and have probably already sent the book for. Which means we’ll be in the fun situation of them having taken a payment not only without authorisation, but with me specifically writing to say they cannot.

I’m sure this will end well.
