I should receive issues 45 to 56
Yikes. Good luck. Last time I ordered ten issues, they arrived in a massive box with literally no other packaging. They had to replace five of the things.

I've ended up with two copies of the last Dante book (53) so anyone please feel free to message me if you're still having trouble finding it.

Also is 47 (?) the only issue with the misaligned spine?

There have been two full reprints to fix the spine - Issue 9/vol 20 Nemesis The Warlock 2 and Issue 1/vol 32 Horned God. I've had some quality trouble with Issue 54/vol 35 Slaine 6.

I should think you've already got the Nemesis one but Horned God was reissued more recently. I got mine with subs issues 45 & 46.

Jade Falcon was 3rd in the queue after DrRocka and you expressed an interest in my spare.

I got Dante alright, but it's the latest Slaine I'm having problems with.

Hachette site claims to still have one in stock.

Just had 53/54 delivered, Slaine Vol "six" has no issues with the spine being misaligned so not sure if it was only a few that were misprinted or if they've already corrected the problem?

The spine on mine is slightly misaligned – about 2mm of black down the right hand side.

Burns' artwork in this latest Dante volume is incredible and the stories are totally perfect for his style.

I've just checked & my volume 35 spine is off (only by a couple of mm) but while checking this I now see the spine for volume 9 is also completely off! I'll contact them via FB & see what happens.

Have any other figurines or extras been dispatched with these issues? (45-56)?
