I'd love to see some of these volumes just have art from one artist. I don't mean splitting up mega-epics but I'd love to see the 'stand-alone' stories of Steve Dillon, Brett Ewins, Brendan McCarthy, Jock, etc collected. It would nicely differentiate them from the casefiles and encourage double-dipping.

If anyone wants to know a bit more about the premium service, I had this reply to an email I sent them:

Please be advised that for the premium subscription there is an additional £1 charge monthly and you will get the first print with issues 10 & 11 and afterwards with every 14 issues. You can opt out of it when you wish,all you need to do is inform us.


Cheers

If you get a wonderful a3 photo quality image rolled in a tube this would be great. If it's a folded piece of a4 it wouldn't be so cool. I think the first issue of the test run came with a folded image of the recent Bolland megazine cover of Dredd allies & foes. It was good but not worth £14 -  if it's an indicator of quality.

I have taken out the subscription, however after opening an account it does not let me link a subscription to it...it simply takes me back to the "create an account" page again! Has anyone had any success with this (or not)? Did email them days ago but as yet no reply

If anyone has any problems, there is a facebook page so you could ask direct questions there. This is obviously if emails and phone calls haven't worked!

Despite what has been publicised... no. Speculation would hit several correct guesses though.

According to their fb page, the first 4 confirmed are

America
Mechanismo
The Apocalypse War
Origins

Everything else is just going to be guesses from the covers shown...

Now that I would pay money to see! :o

Vol 4:  Dredd visits Chronos Carnival.

TBH I've been in two minds with this.  Like a lot of others the thought of duplicating material already owned doesn't make a lot of sense but then the extras / concept gallery looks interesting.  The reviews from those who tried the test subscription has inspired a bit of confidence as well so I'm taking the plunge!

There’s an article and advertisement in this months SFX magazine regarding the collection, so it looks like they're giving it a good push!   :)

Does anyone know if this will go digital? Just having a mass clear out today as the space in the house has now ran out but would still be interested in this if it goes digital.

No way I could make space for 80 volumes xD Struggling to find space for progs and megs :(

Stupid question, I may have ran straight over the details somewhere, but when do these start coming out?
