Interesting question on the FB group as to whether currently out of stock books will ever be reprinted. A positive answer for anyone who fell off:
Quote
The issues that are now showing as out of stock, will be available we are still waiting for new stock as soon as we have stock it will be advertised.

Here's hoping for those that need them, but then this is a company that quite often makes promises and doesn't follow through, so I'd suggest taking that with a pinch of salt. (They do need to be careful with the 2000 AD collection though – it'd not going to go down well if people sub from issue 1 after the Dredd collection, only to be told a year down the line that issues are out of print.)

In that instance they just send the next books until they become available again don't they? Not the end of the world, although communicating reasons to subscribers tends not to happen.

"until they become available again"

That's the problem – it depends whether they actually will become available. Perhaps I'm being too negative, but given that they can't even seem to shift basic subscription scheduling with the 2000 AD Collection, I don't put too much faith in them making good on reprinting old issues of various OOP books.

I may have finally broken them in this respect. Waiting to see what actually turns up next week, will post as I have more information…

That is interesting news. I may just bite the bullet and buy them Ebay. Basically double the cost but I don't really want to run the risk of them not being reprinted. If the series is still being offered for subscription, I'd assume they'd be reprinted. But who knows?

Thinking of stopping at 80. I like what is to come, but pretty much have it all covered by the collections I have. So it'd be a double dip, that said some of the series was triple dipping, and in some cases (what is the word dipping 4 times?) the fourth (dipping) go around.

Really did enjoy the Judge Dredd Universe editions with material from the Mega Collection. Virtually had read none of it before and in that regard it was a treat. There was a lot of quality stories left out, but I guess that is the way of things in a collection like this.

Did everyone get a free copy of 2000ad ultimate collection issue 1?  Very nice, but I'm already subscribed!

Yes, I got one. Still, it'll make a nice gift for a friend.

Due to various things I missed Issue 84 Blood of Emeralds in my local newsagents. Does anyone know if i purchase it from the Hachette shop will it come with the reprint issue aswell ?

No it doesn't. Just had a delivery of the last three books I was missing as never subscribed and 84 was one of them.

Shame the spines don't match up from 80-81 but can't justify spending a tenner to correct their ridiculous mistake.

Frankly, plenty of the other spines in my collection don't match up anyway – number 5's (Necropolis) is very obviously misaligned.

They did get some books back in stock. Insurrection and Judge Child were out of stock for ages and were eventually delivered as part of my sub before I cancelled it. Idk what they'll do now though as the series is officially over.

I asked on Facebook page and was told "When you place an order for 84 it will automatically be sent with a replacement of issue 44. if it happens that issue 44 is not included you can request a replacement of 44 using your order number."

I've put 30* of mine in a -sort of- chronological order (For example starting with Robot wars, Cursed earth, Day the law died, Judge Death, Judge Child, Apocalypse war, ending with DoC bks 1-3 and Blood of emeralds). Love to see the faces of friends who's existence hangs on things being in an absolute order muhaha :lol:

If, say, I didn't yet have a collected _America_, is there any difference between the 2013 collected edition and the Mega Collection one (apart from the cover)..?
