(I'd also love to see the Star Wars and Conan part works - out in France/Germany and Italy, respectively - get a UK showing).
You may not have long to wait.

Fairly sure this is just a 4 issue test release at this stage. It’ll probably go national around Christmas to tie in with Episode 9

Thanks very much for that, Neil!

Xmas does indeed seem like the perfect time to release it  yes.

Thanks indeed Neil.

Just got my email saying I should get the first 2 books in the next 2 weeks.

The X-Men one I ended up with nothing so I assume that was a bust.

The AvP one I got the first 4 books and then zilch so I also assume that one did not go ahead. Which is a shame. The books were lovely.

Out of interest, what subscriber number are you? It’ll be in the top right hand corner of the email.

According to Jedi News, this test has been running for a month already, and I look to be just the 38th person to subscribe. That may not bode well for a full release.

I recently contacted Hatchette about the X-Men collection and they said there was printing issues so it had been postponed

Brexit Partwork. Every fortnight you get a new tory leader, and the another swivel eyed loon to add to your collection. At the end of the collection you can brexit, or leave it unopened in a box like everyone normally does.

Did you ever receive them? I got a letter a couple of weeks ago saying they had had problems processing my Direct Debit (nonsense - they hadn’t tried setting it up) so they were cancelling my sub.

Nope, never heard a peep from them.

Not even a cancellation.

Looks like they might be offering an extension on the series as well ....

Second games workshop miniatures partwork. Probably just at test phase? Although it's the right time of year for a launch.

Yesterday, I saw Issue 3 of this in WHSmith - I guess that must mean I'm in the test area:

Asterix: The Ultimate Collection

"Ultimate Collection", now where have I heard that before?

Book names on the spines! I wish the 2000 AD and Dredd collections had done that.
