I'm guessing no physical subscribers have had 2209 yet?

I've not yet. Our copies of The Phoenix are also coming very late. Which is a sure sign of problems as they arrived like clockwork before, even at the height of the first lockdown, when they actually arrived earlier than normal typically. I think its not landed on a Friday only twice since March, that is before the last two weeks when its been 5 or so days late both weeks. Using that as a barometer I'm expected the Prog to arrive 5 - 7 days late (from Saturday) and that's cool. Fingers crossed we get to the bumper X-Mas Prog and things will sort themselves out over Christmas.

2208 has arrived! 13 days later than the old days, and 9 days later than they’ve recently been arriving. Be nice to see 2209 (and indeed the Xmas prog) before the year’s out.

So you do not worried about 2110 and 2111?

My 2208 arrived yesterday. The Meg arrived the day before. I suspect these delays will be with us well into January.

Ah, good to know about timings. 2009 not here yet, but I did get 2008. All mini-IP’s comics (Beano; Phoenix; Lego Explorers) arrived in one lot on Monday. She was very happy about that!

Well close to Saturday.  Maybe 2208 will finally grace us with its presence. 

Not holding out much hope mind.

No Sheffield is (kinda) gateway to the Rhubarb Triangle... which from the south is true...

Also victim to my appalling grammar.
