Sure Chris said somewhere that it was a rare cover (convention image?) not original art.

Yes, it was the UKCAC pin up that Chris supplied a fresh scan for.

Book plate and print are delayed slightly and should be sent out today apparently! Huzzah! All is well. >>

Where did you get this information? I've emailed their contact address twice to deafening silence?

A chap on fb 2000ad tat and chat group got this response: "I am sorry for the delay in getting the prints and bookplates posted out.  The initial plan was to send everything together, but unfortunately that did not happen. The prints and bookplates are starting to be posted out today (I would hope that all 200 leave the warehouse today), so it is my hope that you will receive them by Thursday, just before Easter. If they don’t arrive by Thursday, I’m not sure if there is a postal delivery on Saturday, it could be Tuesday 18th when they arrive.

Again, apologies for this delay."

Think yourselves lucky. My book's not turned up yet. :'(

ditto.  I'm heading west later on this week, perhaps I should call in and enquire in person?

Which email address have you been using, Adrian? We've doubled check and we've had no emails from you.

Which address have you been using, ...

I think that is the same question a lot of us who ordered the book are asking.  Either that or how is it being sent?

Sounds like there's a glitch at work? I just got an email from Oliver at support after he saw my comments on this thread. Said basically the prints/plates have all been posted today to hopefully arrive before Easter. This is the second time this has happened. The Cursed Earth limited edition arrived without the A3 poster. Understandable because of the size  'but' again no notification it was coming later or when. It's not rocket science.

Mine turned up yesterday (minus the prints, but that's no biggie).
Not very impressed with the postal packaging though - very thin card, taped up on one side that made opening the package a bit of a pain, and the bottom right corner of the hardback has taken a knock and is a bit squished.

Bit worried about how the prints are going to look when they arrive, to be honest.

That said, the hardback is a thing of beauty. Repro droids have done a great job, can't wait to give it a read!

Likewise mine was a little bashed. Nothing serious, but a shame for such a lovely thing.

Still no sign of mine. I wonder if the book plate will arrive first?

Well the jury is out on that too. Contrast this with the Com-X reprint and the original Epic comics and you'll see what I mean. There's a heavy magenta bias to the Rebellion book which is frankly losing alot of the delicate detail of Mick's work. I really hate to be picky but at £28 I think I've a right to at least point it out. Love the gallery though which makes this an essential purchase for the McMahon collector. I've been told that the Com-X files were used but that makes the difference all the more perplexing frankly.

No sign of my copy yet, got the shipping email back on the 4th. Hope SOMETHING turns up before the weekend.
