The funny thing is they once claimed to me they couldn't bump my Dredd sub to earlier in the schedule encase they were not authorised to take more than one DD in a calendar month. (Hogwash, of course.)

Interrupted my own question on this. Isn't the Direct Debit Guarantee thing very particular about detail, setting which day of the month, to protect all parties? Taking double payments, even if they've gotten behind, when it suits them, sounds borderline illegal...

As a non-subscriber, this thread has a morbid fascination  :o

The hachette subs pages have finally updated with an entry. For 1st March. None for Feb. Actually, 1st of March puts it back on the original track before there was any delay.

Has anyone got a corrected spine copy of The Horned God yet? I requested one around the same time I asked them to replace issues 39 and 40. No sign of 39/40 yet but I did just get replacement for Horned God. Only problem is it's another faulty version. Looks like it was ripped straight off the card backing board too.

Bad Company is so good. First time I've read it. Hope the next volume comes quickly.

I think it's due ~July this year.  Of course that will mean different things depending on whether you're a postal subscriber or if you pick yours up from a local thrill merchant

Post, but I really don't keep track of when they're due so it's always a nice surprise when they show up. The Shakara gap has been painful.

I re-read Shakara vol 1 a few months ago, and I'm still waiting. The worst part is that I didn't even know it was two volumes, I think they were a bit sneaky in not making that clear for one of the first issues. (Which I think is also the reason why The Horned God didn't get a volume number, aside from starting with volume 4).

It's the nature of artworks. The first Marvel one did this all the time, and had a number of other relative flaws, including some pretty skinny volumes. (They did one thing I wish 2000 AD and the Dredd books had done, though – catch-up pages when there were gaps in the story.)

Really impressed by Nemesis the Warlock vol 4. I think it’s all in there - poster prog, Tubular Hells, Deadlock, Forbidden Planet etc. A truly stunning volume. Was Torq’s second honeymoon from Annual 1988 always in b&w?

Official release date on the Hachette website is today, and was down to last four remaining copies by half past midnight - was there a really low print-run, or is this just a really popular volume?

Judging by this and other partworks, the print runs are now lower, presumably due to far fewer shops stocking the books. I'd recommend that anyone who wants the books buys them immediately (through Hachette or Forbidden Planet, say) now, rather than wait. I made that mistake with a Transformers one recently, resulting in a set of fraught emails to various comic shops, and then having to go to Reading to pick up a copy one of my local stores had managed to source.

I had to go to Reading. Do not make that mistake yourself, readers.
