New specials: 2000 AD, Cor!!, Tammy, Vigilant, and more
« on: 13 February, 2019, 07:03:07 pm »
A proper big slab of news today, with a whopping EIGHT new Rebellion specials over the next seven months. Six of them are available in a bundle, which seems quite the bargain. 20 quid for all six (saving six quid), free shipping, and sent as and when they're released.

You can order the 2019 specials bundle from the 2000 AD shop.

This is exciting news. Hopefully all these specials will be available digitally as well. Interesting to see that prog 2130 will be a 100-pager.

Not that far off!  In some ways, wish they ahd included the Roy of the Rovers in the bundle, as it will be hard to bring myself to buy it otherwise - (football argh!), but see the sense in keeping it separate

Thanks for this. Useful to know.

I'm especially looking forward to prog 2130.

Just placed my order. My only question is why were the other two excluded from the deal? To keep it to a nice round figure?

My guess: the 99p special is a comic-store-only thing (to tie into FCBD) and ROTR alone would add 50% to the bundle price. How many people who think "six specials for 20 quid – done!" wouldn't be so excited about seven for 30?

From the Hollywood Reporter about prog 2130 is that it will be called 2000 AD Regen for one episode since it will be "taken" over by the kids: https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/2000-ad-publisher-reveals-ambitious-comic-book-plans-2019-1186305

Villains special IS included in the bundle - its the Regene and Roy of the Rovers excluded - Roy probably for the reasons you give and Regene because I am presuming as it is technically prog 2130, I will get that with my sub?

Oops. Well, in that case the Prog would come as part of the sub. The ROTR thinking stands.

Wow well done Lizzie.

It's also interesting to note Rebellion are dabbling with boosting their editorial as well as creative line ups.

This package is a great idea on Rebellion's part. I would probably only buy two or three of these individually, but have instead ordered the lot.
